John King Tells Jeff Zucker What Would Make Him Bolt From CNN

By Jordan Chariton 

While talking about President Obama’s less than strong show of support for VA Secretary Eric Shinseki yesterday, CNN’s John King had a message for his boss.

“If my boss ever said that about me publicly, I’d be gone out the door in a second,” King said this morning on “New Day.” He followed with a lighthearted, “Hi Jeff [Zucker].”

The declaration from King was based on his belief that President Obama is keeping Shinseki around to lead the VA misconduct investigation, but will dismiss him after.
