- Rumors Gay
Again, here we have another famous television anchor rumored as a gay.
Previously, we talked about Matt Gutman's gay rumors. The rumors were all over the internet, only to be realized as false claims later.
So, yes, David Muir is being labeled as a gay these days. Let’s find out if there is some evidence that supports this rumor.
If you had followed him on social media, you would have known that David likes to keep his personal life private. Nobody knows if he has a girlfriend or if he is already a married man.
David Muir's Gay Rumor That Left Us Baffled
However, there were rumors that David Muir was romantically linked with a fellow journalist and colleague, Gio Benitez. The rumor surrounding the gay romance between the two grew intense once Gio began to make regular appearances alongside David on ABC World News, where the latter was a co-host.
Fans of the show especially latched onto the fact that Gio, David's alleged boyfriend, would only appear on the show when David's other host, Diane Sawyer was busy reporting from the field.
He was said to be dating Gio and was reportedly seen visiting gay bars together with him. For a guy who hates being photographed in gay bars, the fact he would let someone photograph him with Gio is very telling.

The fact that Gio had once tweeted David as his golden follower was enough to make his fans believe that the alleged boyfriends might be an item, In a tweet dated back to December of 2013, he wrote:
#Vizify, my Top 3 "Golden Followers" of 2013 are.. ((drumroll plz)).. @DavidMuir, @ABCWorldNews, & @ABC
To David's fans dismay, their frequent run-ins proved a mere coincidence in the end.
Anyway, Gio got engaged to his boyfriend, Tommy DiDario on September 17, 2015, and got married later on April 16, 2016. For further info, you can check out our article on Gio’s love life.
Married, Wife or Dating with a Girlfriend?
So here we are with the same conclusion we had when discussing the rumors of Matt Gutman being gay.
The only difference we have here is that Matt Gutman was a married man who was happy with his wife and two children, while David had been known to be in a rumored relationship with Kate Dries, but still with rumors of being a gay.
This story came around after Kate published an article titled, 'Report Indicates My Boyfriend David Muir Is a 'Monster.' It looks like she was just trying to be sarcastic. Millions of women would love to date him.

Anyway, David hasn't confirmed Kate's rhetoric.
Apparently, the managing editor of Jezebel, Kate, is dating a guy who goes by the Instagram account @sablesma.
David Muir's Journalistic Contributions
Apart from everything, David himself has been the news of the town because of the hype of the election - he will mark the final sprint to Election Day with exclusive interviews. He has interviewed Hillary Clinton on the matter of Donald Trump choking for words while in Mexico.
He also interviewed her requesting her perspective on why her husband and the former President of United States should not resign from his position in Clinton Foundation, querying about her thoughts on possible Russian interference in the election, and asking other important questions on different issues. He also interviewed Trump on matters such as his 'choking for words remark to Hillary', immigration plans, tax returns, etc.
In recent events, David Muir is in the top news as he scored the Television win by drawing 8.276 million viewers for the week of September 26; such large number that the ABC saw 17 years back for the first time when Peter Jenning hosted the show.
The show won the first two weeks of news TV season in 17 years, thanks to David Muir and the team behind it. NBC Nightly News finished the week second with 7.898 million viewers with Lester Holt hosting and CBS Evening News landed on the second position with 6.549 million viewers with Scott Pelley hosting.
However, David Muir was also caught up with all the Presidential election environment and a day later, after Donald Trump won the election and became the 45th President of the United States of America, he sat down with four reporters who followed different presidential candidates from the start and talked about their busy journey that came to a halt in November 8. Ironically, David became 43 years old the night Donald Trump became the president-elect but not sure if he got to properly celebrate as they whole country was focusing on one thing.

The summary of the entire interview includes Donald Trump confirming that he is making changes to CIA interrogation techniques as well as their 'Black Site' prisons and even hinted that they would be made much crueler to create positive results. There were other topics of discussion such as Trump's opinion on congressional Republicans huddling with him and what his next plans for the new administration are.
He also defended the 'inflated crowd-size estimates' at his inauguration as well as his assertion that he would have won the popular vote if the illegal votes had not come into play. He then told Muir the following words about the claims that the estimated crowd size at the inauguration was false:
I said the men and women that I was talking to who came out and voted will never be forgotten again.Therefore I won't allow you or other people like you to demean that crowd and to demean the people that came to Washington DC, from faraway places because they like me. But more importantly they like what I'm saying.”
Furthermore, he asserted that the 'Mexica Border Wall Plan' was underway and that he was laying down the groundwork for it.
