Blitzer's comments regarding Trump comes just days after White House advisor Stephen Miller and CNN's Jake Tapper engaged in a fiery exchange; with Miller slamming the network after the anchor questioned the President's mental health and fitness for office. Beyond his reputation for not being careful with the facts, Wolff admitted he said whatever he needed to say to gain the trust of White House officials, which makes you wonder, if he so thoroughly deceived them, how much is he deceiving us?
Tapper appeared to become flustered by Miller's defense of the president and his refusal to answer some questions.
The two talked over and past each other before Tapper cut off the interview, stating he has "wasted enough of my viewers' time".
Carlson, however, did reference a video which is known to exist of Miller and Tapper sparring after the segment ended during the commercial break, partial transcripts of which were leaked online Monday. Miller agreed with Trump's description of himself, adding that Trump is a "self-made billionaire who revolutionized reality TV and who has changed the course of..."
"You should be ashamed of yourself", Miller reportedly said.
In an interview on Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Miller denied getting pulled from the CNN's "State of the Union" set after Carlson sarcastically asked if Miller thought he would have kicked out had he been an illegal immigrant from the violent MS-13 gang.
Miller called Tapper "condescending" and attempted to say that CNN has 24/7 negative coverage of Trump and the viewers deserved to hear three minutes of the truth.
But in the aftermath of the interview, Mr Trump took to social media to show that he was indeed watching the clash.
