via Politico

CNN's Wolf Blitzer caused a bit of a stir transitioning out of reporting on the Iranian nuclear deal Saturday night:

"I'm Wolf Blitzer, reporting from Washington. The assassination of President Kennedy begins right now."

Blitzer was referring to a CNN documentary airing Saturday night about the assassination 50 years ago this week.
