Kermit the Frog To Wolf Blitzer: ‘I Have To Tell You, Newt Is From The Swamp’

Kermit the Frog appeared on CNN in an exclusive interview with Wolf Blitzer and told the news anchor though as a frog, he could not vote, he still was “proud to be an Amphibian American.”

The iconic muppet spoke to Blitzer about his plan to speak with President Obama.

“I am taking a certain issue to discuss with the president if I can,” Kermit explained. “That’s interspecies dating which evidently Miss Piggy is for — I’m not so sure about.”

“So you’ll raise that issue when you see the president?” asked Blitzer.

“Yes, sir, I will. I want to tell all of the animals out there in the world and any people who might date out, folks.”

The topic eventually turned to politics, and Kermit’s opinion of Newt Gingrich.

“I have to tell you, newt is from the swamp,” Kermit exclaimed. “There are other newts in the swamp, too.”

“The next time I Interview him, maybe you’ll join me in the questions,” Blitzer proposed.

“You bet I will!” responded the Muppet.
