Rep. Sean Duffy Fails To Distract Colleague Trey Gowdy During CNN Interview

Rep. Sean Duffy of Wisconsin pulled a little horseplay on his Republican colleague, Rep. Trey Gowdy, on Wednesday while the latter was appearing on CNN’s The Situation Room.

Duffy walked by during the live shot inside a corridor in the U.S. Capitol and touched the South Carolina congressman on the ear. Amazingly, Gowdy didn’t miss a beat as he replied to a question from anchor Wolf Blitzer on FBI Director James Comey‘s testimony to Congress earlier in the day.

Look at the GIF below (and watch in the CNN video above) to see how Gowdy just kept going:

Duffy himself tweeted about it after CNN did:

Seconds earlier, Blitzer mistakenly greeted the Republican politician as “senator,” even after mentioning his guest was a “Republican congressman.”
