Did CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Just Call Donald Trump “Drumpf” on Air?
As early polls are rolling in, and people are getting real nervous, CNN commentator Wolf Blitzer might have just made a major slip on live TV. As he was highlighting the early poll numbers in Florida, the news anchor accidentally called Donald Trump by his family’s ancestral name “Drumpf.”
If you’ve been following this election all year, you’ll know that John Oliver hosted a majorly popular segment on his HBO show Last Week Tonight where he launched a viral anti-Trump meme “Make Donald Drumpf Again” — a play on the Republican candidate’s campaign slogan. Watch the hilarious segment below in case you haven’t seen it yet.
Naturally, Twitter is on it.
