Poor Ali Velshi. When he was giving weather updates today,he talked to a caller who identified himself as Gene Laster of Newark Liberty Airport. The caller was supposed to be talking to Ali about how the severe weather has shut down the Newark Airport. About a minute into the conversation,Gene Laster calls Ali a dumb ass on air. Why? Well,Gene Laster says that Ali Velshi should have known that he was the recipient of a prank call.Because the Newark Airport was never closed.
After that, Ali said,”Good one,Gene.”
Then,he went on with the rest of the broadcast without incident. What,a funny & crazy CNN moment.Vodpod videos no longer available.
