When it comes to America’s relationship with Israel, don’t mess with Mike!
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg stopped by CNN’s post in Jerusalem on Wednesday to talk about his decision to fly to Israel, in essence protesting this week’s ban on U.S. travel to the region. But things got a bit juicy when Wolf Blitzer asked whether Bloomy thinks the State Department travel advisory was enacted for political reasons:
“Don’t be ridiculous! Why would you think that?” fired back Bloomberg. “It’s an outrage to accuse one of our agencies––by asking the question, you’re implying our government does things for political reasons, and maybe every once in a while they do it, but it’s your job to prove it. Just the allegation against our government, I personally take as an offense.”
And he didn’t stop there. “The tone of the question, of trying to create dissension, it’s insulting to America.”
If you look really closely, you might even be able to see Wolf soiling his pants.
Well, it’s nice to finally see some pro-America AND pro-Israel sentiments on cable news for once, albeit in defense of the Obama administration’s actions. In this day and age, you have to take what you can get…even if the opinion is coming from a guy who wants to take your sodas and guns away.
