Wolf Blitzer, whose on-air tone so seldom deviates, voiced his clear exasperation with the idea that President Donald Trump would ask now-fired FBI Director James Comey for a pledge of personal loyalty. (An act reported by the New York Times, but denied in a Fox News interview by Trump — with the caveat that he “doesn’t think it would be a bad question to ask.”)
Wolf Blitzer thinks it would be a bad question to ask.
“What kind of question is that to ask the FBI director?” Blitzer said, with visible and audible frustration. “Are you loyal to the United States? Are you loyal to the country?”
The normally mild-mannered anchor remained incredulous while referencing the President’s Tweet storm from Friday morning, in which he fired off seven social media dispatches in a 90-minute span.
“What happens when the President starts tweeting at 7:51 a.m., then 7:53, then 7:59, then 8:07, 8:26, 8:50? He had a busy morning this morning––tweeting, tweeting, tweeting.” Blitzer said.
