Larry Wilmore regrets the Wolf Blitzer zinger

Larry Wilmore says in an interview with the Associated Press that his tone of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner “didn’t fit the room.”

In the interview, Wilmore felt that he lost the room when he turned to roast CNN veteran anchor Wolf Blitzer. He had joked, “Speaking of drones, how is Wolf Blitzer still on television? Hey, Wolf, I’m willing to project tonight’s winner: anyone that isn’t watching The Situation Room.

Blitzer remained stone-faced during the joke.

Wilmore expressed regret about it to the AP: “I feel bad about the Wolf thing, because that came out more negative than I intended.”

After the comedian’s remarks, Blitzer told Page Six, “He’s a comedian, let him have fun.”
