CNN viewers were left in shock on Thursday, February 8, when anchor Wolf Blitzer appeared to be on the verge of vomiting during a live interview with House Oversight Committee Ranking Member Jamie Raskin.

Wolf Blitzer nearly throws up on camera during a CNN interview.

During the interview on The Situation Room, Blitzer was seen displaying several pained expressions, suggesting that he was struggling with some form of nausea.

After nearly a full minute of apparent discomfort, CNN producers finally caught on and quickly cut Blitzer's feed. This left Raskin to continue with his remarks alone, but moments later, vomit-like sounds could be heard just before the broadcast abruptly cut to a commercial break.

When the show resumed, CNN chief legal affairs correspondent Paula Reid appeared in Blitzer's place and explained, "Wolf had to step away for a moment, but he will be back."

However, Blitzer did not return before the end of the program, leaving viewers with lingering concerns about his well-being.

As the news of Blitzer's health scare spread, many viewers expressed their concern for the seasoned journalist's well-being. Many took to X, formerly known as Twitter, where users shared their theories and worries surrounding the CNN anchor's health.

One user shared a clip from the CNN interview in a post that read, "Umm, is Wolf Blitzer okay? Shouldn't the news anchors have a button (like bank tellers have when they are being robbed to alert police) under the desk to tell the director, 'Get me off camera, I got problems?'"

Another user commented, "The man is 75, and I swear he's on camera like 12 hours a day. Give this man a break!"

A third user wrote, "Poor wolf. I feel for the guy. He’s been holding that time slot down for quite a long time now. I hope it's nothing too serious. It looks like he was in a lot of pain."
