Wolf Blitzer Throws Liberal Points At Congressman Tom Reed

While many CNN interviews with elected officials are often dominated by Democrats, Wolf Blitzer emptied the bin of liberal points upon New York Republican Congressman Tom Reed's appearance on Wolf on 6 September 2018.

Wolf didn't back down from making straight comments and asking questions that ranged from him wondering if America was in a constitutional crisis to questioning Donald Trump's mental stability, upon arguing about Republicans abdicating their responsibility to impeach the President.

When Wolf asked about the constitutional crisis, Tom Reed overlooked the notion and tossed the follow-up question aside as well.

After Wolf asked a question about what Tom made of Donald Trump's tweet about the author of the anonymous New York Time was treasonous, Tom responded with the words stating that it was an act of cowardice.

Following up with the demanding comment from Tom if he was okay with the way Donald Trump viewed Kim Jong-un and Vladimir Putin, Wolf ended the interview by complaining how the Republican-controlled House of Representatives hadn't cooperated with Donald Trump.
