Wolf Blitzer has ‘the same power as the American president’ ?

On a recent trip to North Korea, Foreign Affairs Vice Minister Kim Kye Gwan greeted CNN’s Wolf Blitzer by saying (through a translator): “I’m personally very happy to meet with you, Mr. Wolf, who I presume have the same power as the American president.”

“Mr. Wolf” responded bashfully, “Thank you very much, but I don’t think it’s true.”

Kye Gwan invited Blitzer and former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson for a look inside the nation. A special on the trip, called “Six Days in North Korea,” airs tomorrow night at 6pmET.
