Piers Morgan kicks off Jimmy Carter interview with dig at the pope

What is it with Piers Morgan and “the pope thing”? A week after tweeting that he finds the pope’s resignation “a bit lame,” Morgan kicked off his interview with former President Jimmy Carter with this bizarre observation:

Wouldn’t an American president resigning because of “tiredness” also be a bit lame? It’s the first question we’d ask Jimmy Carter if given the chance.

Good point: Jimmy Carter might be in good health, but he also chose to sit for an interview with Piers Morgan. Kudos to Carter for dealing well with an inane question.

    Right now, Hallmark cards are being written from overseas.

    “thank you America for your immigration policy.”

      What’ll it take for you to take him back?

        I’d gladly pay “my fair share” to send this waste of human flesh back to England…or a third world country that would take him…in a rowboat that will start leaking when he gets into international waters…with no oars…and no compass or sextant…with bags of chum for ballast…or better yet, using Tingles, Toure, Marcotte, Willis, et al. as shark bait…

    Yeah, real classy. The Pope has physical ailments, while Jimmy has been mentally defective for decades.

    So Morgan interviews Carter… So what. Anybody care?

    • Garth Haycock

      If Piers Morgan interviews someone and Twitter users don’t watch so they can tweet about the inevitable idiotic comments that Morgan will make, would anyone know that Pier Morgan interviewed someone?

    Obama managed to make Carter look good.
    The Pope should declare that a miracle.

    • CatHerder

      At one time I’d have said that was impossible. Goes to show how much I know.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1481638587 Laura Thompson

        Same here…I thought we couldn’t get worse than Pres. Malaise but boy how wrong I was!!! Jimmy & Roselyn must thank the gods of lame-a$$ politics every day for the atrocity that is the Obama Administration!!!

    • Michael Anderson (WB)

      The difference is: while Carter may have been a bad President, he is a good man. He uses his time to help people, it’s just when he gets political that it goes down hill. With Obama we don’t know what he’ll do after the Presidency, before being President he helped orchestrate the housing crisis so I don’t have much hope for him after being President.

        @michael…carter consistently sides with genocidal Palestinian islamists. That’s about as opposite of GOOD as you can get.

        • Michael Anderson (WB)

          Well as I said, when he gets political it all goes downhill.

  • Donna W

    Piers Whats-His-Name said his interview with Carter is “fascinating”.
    Yeah, like watching paint dry. Or watching water boil.

    Pope a decent man and I wish him well. Morgan not a decent man and I wish him ill..

    • Judy B

      No, no, wish him well & heap coals on his head

  • Rico Mapster

    Can’t Morgan be deported as an undesirable alien?

      alien… oh the irony…

  • waltermitty2012

    Sean Hannity is only 4 years older than Piers Morgan, yet Hannity easily has 3 times more viewers. It must be an age thing.

    The KING of dancing on American graves ==> .@piersmorgan prematurely dancing on Pope Benedict XVI’s grave.

  • fivegreatkids

    I am not Catholic and am disgusted by his treatment of the Pope. He is a central figure for the Catholic religion–has “Mr” Morgan no respect for anything?

    • irishamrep

      No, he doesn’t! He is having his 15 minutes of fame on that rotten cnn but even England don’t want him. These Network people think having a socialist with an accent on is cool, there all idiots!

  • RightThinking1

    Oh. Drat. I momentarily thought it said “Piers Morgan Kicks Jimmy Carter off of Interview.”

    Too bad, would have been a more interesting show.

  • Ron Hughes

    Mr. Morgan’s parents have got to be disappointed. Buy the books, send him to school and he still turned out to be stupid!

  • Brian Roastbeef

    Everything Piers Morgan says in summary: “Trololololo lololo lololo lololololololo… Trololololo lololo lololo hey hey hey hey hey!”

    That’s all of it. Ever. No need to give the ass any more airtime or attention. It’s all trololololo, and that’s all it will ever be. And Eduard Khil did it better.

    At least most Internet trolls have the defense of being 12 year olds.

      AAAahahahahahahahaha! XD

  • AlmaAlma

    You know, they say that at a certain age, you can see the life you have lived on your face. Well, Piers has a snarky, dishonest face. He snarls all the time. He should try to be happy. Maybe he needs to get some tips from the Pope on how to do that.

      …wow…I haven’t heard that “lovely” word in soooo long…but it’s an absolutely appropriate discription of this jackhole…and several other media whores out there as well…for those of you who don’t know what smegma means, please visit dictionary.com…trust me, it’s appropriately discriptive of Piers and those of his ilk…GOOD ON YA!!!

  • Renny

    Anything to get more attention. Why doesn’t anyone ever ask Morgan about the scandal that got him out of a job in England?

  • TocksNedlog

    It’s like he thinks “I have to show my left-wing bonafides, so i’ll bash the pontiff.” Either that, or it’s just the unquenchable liberal urge to tell people how to live.

  • subtleties

    The CNN talk is Piers’s career is as near to death as Jimmy Carter….he’ll be moved to a later time slot and then to unemployment.

    Carter and Morgan in one place at the same time? Is that not like something unnatural and against the laws of science and physics to have two such VACUOUS nothings in the same place/space at once? This is actually the purported ‘Hell freezing over’, not global warming…errr climate change, am I right?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1481638587 Laura Thompson

      …wow…never thought of the physics of it all…good point…and I’m eternally grateful it didn’t cause a complete collapse of reality as we know it…I suppose it’s a good thing it wasn’t a roundtable discussion including Al-Jazeera Gore, Tingles, et al. otherwise we’d’ve ended up falling into the great sucking vortex that is lib/prog governm…oh hell…we ARE there right now, aren’t we??? Time to bust out the Giant George sized pooper-scooper and throw all these morons out…including the RINOs!!!

  • Ha Keem

    someone has to play the paterno role i guess LOL,

  • notenoughtime

    Let us worry about the Pope. Piers should focus more on the fact that his guys, Obama and Carter, are running neck to neck for the worse President in modern time award. But we will continue to pray that Morgan finds his way out of the abyss he lives in!

  • Diane Jankowski

    I Wish Piers Morgan would retire.

    Why is Piers growing a vagina on his chin?

    Piers Morgan is a raving lunatic. I’m surprised he didn’t suggest the Cardinal Conclave consider the Peace Prize President for Pope.

  • Michelle

    Why is Piersy incapable of comprehending the fact that we all age differently? Carter is 4 yrs old than the Pope and still able to do talk shows, so what? One of my grandmothers died at the age of 82, while the other lived to 98. OMG how DARE my 82 yr old grandmother not live to the age my other one did! The NERVE of her to have her body give out 16 yrs sooner than my other grandmother.

    Catholics may not be like members of the Religion of Peace, but even Catholics can run out of patience with the likes of Piers Morgan. Is it possible that this man – with an audience you could fit into Chicago’s Apollo Theater, with seats to spare – wants a close encounter with an angry Catholic? Didn’t a chair in the nose do wonders for Geraldo Rivera?

  • BeeKaaay

    Piers Morgan is either a Nazi or a KKK member. I can’t tell the difference.
