GMA’s Sam Champion hits back at troll after they claim he can afford a ‘private plane’ after star suffers delays on trip

He recently experienced delays while trying to to Sao Paulo, Brazil.

On Saturday, Sam, 61, shared a video of the many delays he and his husband were facing.

They were traveling from New York to Brazil and everyone one of their flights were delayed.

He later revealed in an Instagram story that he and his husband, Rubem Robierb, were there for a family wedding.

After Sam detailed the problems they were having, a follower of his asked a question that didn’t sit right with the meteorologist.

“U make enough for a private plane,” they commented on his Instagram post.

To that, the GMA host replied: “let’s live… but not unnecessarily pollute!”

His comment received multiple likes, where the original commenter’s only received one like.


On Friday, Sam shared a clip filled with selfies of him and his husband on his Instagram page.

In one of the clips in the video, the ABC host and Rubem, 46, were enjoying their meal and drinks at the airport.

The second clip of the video was just a selfie shot of Sam smiling and holding a mug and the last one captured both of them cheesing side-by-side.

Despite the video showing Sam and his spouse looking cheerful, his caption was anything but happy.

“Here we go again! @americanair 2 1/2 hour delay ( last night) to #saupaulo,” Sam began in his caption.

“THEN !! GET THIS!! Turned around, MID-AIR at 3:30 am!! …4 hours sleep.. back at the airport to try again!

“Wish us luck ! #weddingadventure #flagship #travel #travelwithsam #traveldaddy Will we make it!?!?!? #travelstories.”


Before Sam took off for his trip, he warned co-host, Robin Roberts that she was “being judged.”

Robin had a quick back-and-forth with meteorologist Sam during Tuesday’s episode of GMA, when the moment occurred.

She kicked things off: “Sam, I never thought I’d say this. I am going to speak this morning to Dolly Parton and Dionne Warwick.”

“At the same time?!” an enthralled Sam replied.

“They are talking about their incredible new collaboration and you’ll see it here on GMA,” Robin responded.

The pair gushed for a moment while Robin chuckled to herself as Sam declared he would be watching.

Robin shared: “I will always love you, Sam, and that’s what friends are for.”

“That’s like music royalty!” Sam replied, hardly believing his ears.

“It’s everything. Make sure you take pictures. I want a picture of that.”

“Well, it’s via Zoom, so…” Robin’s voice trailed off as the crowd booed, less excited to hear that Robin wouldn’t speak to the stars in person.

“They’re still gonna be live!” Robin said, laughing.

“Right, I know!” Sam replied. He then gestured to his left to staff off-screen.

He remarked: “I just want you to know that you were judged by that end of the room,” referring to Robin’s mention of the meeting taking place over Zoom.

Robin burst out laughing at her gaffe.

“But I like the Zoom, I’m still all for it, I think it qualifies as a great get.”

“Thank you! I appreciate that, Sam.”

“We’ll be watching,” Sam replied with a huge grin. “Because that’s what friends are for!”

The pair couldn’t contain their laughter at the awkward moment as they burst out chuckling at the joke Sam made.
