Jay Leno lampooned a CNN staffer on Monday night, claiming he was hamming up his hard work for TV.
Well, that was Paul Steinhauser, CNN’s deputy political director, and he cleared the air on a CNN interview with T.J. Holmes.
“I’m a popular guy here at CNN,” said Steinhauser. “People call me. People call me all the time.”
“Who has a three second conversation, Paul?,” grilled Holmes.
Steinhauser finally explained that people are calling him to say he’s on TV, and he answers “Yeah, I know, thank you very much. Bye.”
