Blizter Humiliates GOP Rep. McHenry
Wolf Blitzer made GOP Rep. Patrick McHenry look foolish on CNN by exposing McHenry’s baseless charges that Democrats were orchestrating Foleygate. (It’s actually a “Daily Show” clip, and Stewart nails it, too.)
Wait, before you go…
Blitzer: Well you don’t have any evidence though, right?
Rep. McHenry: Well look at the fact points…four weeks out from a national election…
Blitzer: Yes or no: do you have any evidence? Do you have any evidence Congressman?
Rep. McHenry: Do you have any evidence that says they weren’t involved?
Blitzer: I’m just asking if you’re just throwing out an accusation or if you have any hard evidence.
Rep. McHenry: No, it’s a question Wolf. The question remains, were they involved? And if they were not involved they need to say clearly, and it’s a question, it’s not an accusation.
Blitzer: Well, they are denying that they had anything to do with this.
