An arrogant Wolf Blitzer admonishes a Republican U.S. Senator for his vote in support of a Republican President…go figure:

Republican Senator Bob Corker got into a heated back and forth with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer following Tuesday’s vote on the Republican tax bill, after Corker switched his vote from “no” to “yes.” Isn’t Corker allowed to switch his vote? Blitzer shows zero respect for Corker and you can tell Corker doesn’t appreciate it:

Corker appeared uncomfortable after Blitzer played a clip of him criticizing President Trump in October, after Corker said Trump had “proven himself unable to rise to the occasion” of being president.

When pressed by Blitzer over whether he still believed what he said less than eight weeks ago, Corker said “Look, I know you’re having a great time with this interview, and I’m happy for you in doing so,” adding “But, look, Wolf, I’ve said what I’ve said. And I’m doing what I’m doing.

I don’t appreciate, you know, the front end of this interview,” Corker continued to shoot back. “You and I had a conversation about this yesterday on the phone, and you know that all of these things are totally malicious. They’re not true, and you know that, and people in the press that are responsible know that. I’m disappointed that you chose this opportunity to do what you did.”

Blitzer kicked it up a notch, admonishing Corker in a condescending tone:

 “This is not fun. These are critically important issues. You’re a United States senator, Mr. Chairman, you have enormous responsibility

These tax cuts are going to go forward. They may be great, they may not be great, but it’s your responsibility as a U.S. senator to answer these kinds of questions, and it’s certainly not something I’m doing because I want to have fun,” the CNN host said. “I’m doing it because I’m a reporter, I’m a journalist and I’m asking you questions that are legitimate, fair questions, sir.”
