This is Comedy Gold!  On CNN to boot! And it has become a viral sensation and propelled the talented Brianna Keilar into the limelight with her sharp, intuitive yet natural journalistic skills. 

Listen, regardless of  what side of the political aisle you waltz around on, you have to admit this is pretty funny stuff. I mean Twitter has exploded with multiple memes embracing the #sayswho and #allofthem exchange between CNN’s Brianna Keilar and Donald Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen

This could be a skit on Saturday Night Live when, in fact, this was a legitimate interview during The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer.  Mr. Blitzer was on grand – paternity leave, enjoying his new grandson (congratulations!)  and so the talented Brianna Keilar was filling in for him – as she often does for his show. 

I mean – who would think that a simple exchange could turn out to be so hilarious?  Over a question about polls no less?  Ms. Keilar can barely hold herself back from laughing out loud but she does so very well. Better than I would do! 

Brianna Keilar is my new hero. She is a natural in front of a camera and, if she ever becomes bored with her job, she could easily waltz into an acting career.  She is very talented. And real. 

Poor Michael Cohen. He never stood a chance. 

Here is the short version of the interview, followed by a slightly longer version. Enjoy.
