Morgan spoke to Rep. Paul for two segments– the first mostly concerned with why Rep. Paul connects with young people and on his individual policies. Morgan was a bit more aggressive during the second segment, which opened with Morgan asking how Rep. Paul would react to the fact that “your opponents always present you as someone crazy.” “I get a charge out of this when they say these views are extreme,” Rep. Paul noted, explaining that “what really counts are the issues and what you believe in,” and that age didn’t matter as “I have young ideas and I’m in good health.”
Morgan then turned to the tweet in question, asking Rep. Paul whether he had any comment: “Do you want to apologize?” Rep. Paul responded by saying that “it was supposed to be a little high-spirited and funny, but it turned out to be a national incident,” and that it was his staff that thought it was a good idea. As he began explaining what happened, unbeknowst to him, Huntsman himself appeared on the screen waiting for his interview, listening to Rep. Paul. Morgan eventually let Rep. Paul know that Huntsman was on the line, as the Congressman continued to explain. “I thought he was a nice guy he had some nice ideas!” Rep. Paul explained.
Morgan then gave the Congressman a bit of unsolicited advice: “I would urge a little caution… [there now is] a pattern of you being completely unaware of what your staff are doing half the time.” Rep. Paul responded that it wasn’t “half the time,” and that “it was meant to be in good humor,” though he told his staff that it “isn’t very funny” for them to do something that causes the candidate to be caught flat-footed on national television. On the other screen, Jon Huntsman smiled.
The interview via CNN below:
Wow, the one republican candidate that sounds somewhat reasonable didn’t
even place. And now mocked by a loon like Paul. That is so sad.
When did Paul first take a shot at the presidency, 1926?
Whatever… Obama 2012
I’m a sweet, friendly, honest, caring girl in search of “the
one”. I’ve been single for over two years .Finding love can be tough
enough but finding a mate that’s wealthy can even be harder.

and successful people. Check it out and flirt with those wealthy, handsome or
beautiful! What else are you waiting for ?
Paul handled that by being a nice guy, but he sounded like George McFly in those final seconds.
This whole “scandal” is pretty stupid. Neither of these guys is going to win and Paul didn’t do anything that was so awful.

Do you just repeat every thing the media tells you?
What’s reasonable about Huntsman? Is it his adamant pro life stance? His strong stance on the 2nd amendment? His tax cutting ideas? His ideas of shrinking government? His stance against labor unions?
I agree, with you. Huntsman, ironically is the strongest conservative in the race. I love his ideas.
But why would you, a liberal, say he’s reasonable?
Turn off MSNBC.
Piers Morgan has LONG had a mancrush on pretty-boy Huntsman, mainly because of his links to Obama. And probably because he’s a millionaire.
Ron Paul is the only candidate not getting a penny from Wall Street, which irks the MSM elite.
hey Popcorn maybe you should take a look at what a real leader of Liberty is about or are you a Nazi ? And Ron Paul could ride circles around most 60 year old people .Works out more then you I bet . And Obama is person with out a Country sold Americans out for his Health care law for profit of inside trading and going against the Constitution ! RON PAUL Liberty and Rights for Freedom !
He’s not a flip flopping, racist newsletter writing, crazy eyed, cheating on my wife while she has cancer, ban condoms and birth control tea party lunatic……
