Wolf Blitzer Did Not Blame The Tea Party For Boston Explosions

Tweets claiming the CNN anchor was speculating about an anti-tax Tea Party connection turn out to be false.

People on Twitter are accusing CNN’s Wolf Blitzer of making an on-air connection between the Tea Party and the Boston Marathon explosions.

So it just just 3 hours to lay blame on conservatives. Way to Wolf Blitzer! Pathetic.

Asbolutely disgusting that @wolfblitzer speculates there is a link between #Bostonmarathonbombing and Patriots Day? http://t.co/bL0XdL6B3z

CNN's Wolf Blitzer just speculated if anti-tax groups (otherwise known as Tea Party) were behind the bombing WITH ZERO EVIDENCE

But he didn’t. Here’s what Blitzer actually said:

“It is a state holiday in Massachusetts today called Patriots’ Day and, uh, who knows if that had anything at all to do with these explosions.” —Wolf Blitzer, CNN
