WOLF BLITZER: “You’re blessed. Brian, your husband is blessed. Anders is blessed… I guess you got to thank the Lord, right?”

REBECCA: *Shrug*

WOLF BLITZER: (Insisting) “Do you thank the Lord for that split-second decision?”

REBECCA: “I–I’m actually an atheist,” (Awkward laughs) “We are here and you know, I don’t blame anybody for thanking the Lord.”

WOLF BLITZER: "Of course not."

Perfect.
