BREAKING: CNN Abruptly Cuts To Commercial After Anchor Nearly Vomits On Air | News World Express

CNN was forced to abruptly cut to a commercial break after anchor Wolf Blitzer appeared to be on the verge of vomiting during a live interview with White House Oversight Committee Ranking Member Jamie Raskin. The “Situation Room” host was in the middle of the interview on Thursday night when he became visibly uncomfortable and appeared to be repeatedly chocking something back. He looked on in increasingly panicked silence as Mr Raskin talked about the dispute in Colorado over Donald Trump’s appearance on the ballot.

Mr Blitzer, 75, struggled to contain himself for a full minute before CNN cut his feed and left Mr Ruskin to finish his final comments on his own. At this point, attentive listeners could hear vomit-like sounds in the background. CNN then abruptly played a commercial, cutting Mr Ruskin off mid-sentence.

The show eventually returned but with CNN chief legal affairs correspondent Paula Reid as the host. “Wolf had to step away, he’ll be back,” Ms Reid said before continuing with the show.

In a statement to the Washington Post, CNN confirmed that Mr Wolf “wasn’t feeling 100% while anchoring Thursday night”. “He looks forward to being back in the Situation Room and appreciates the well wishes,” the network stated.

Mr Wold also later said that he was on the mend. “I’m fine! Thanks for the well wishes,” he wrote on X. “I’ll see you back in the Situation Room soon,” he added.
