Piers Morgan interviews Antonin Scalia about Bush v. Gore, John Roberts

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia appeared on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight” for a rare interview alongside Professor Bryan A. Garner, co-author of “Reading Law: The Interpretation of Legal Texts.”

It doesn’t take long for Morgan to designate originalism as a “problem” and suggest that the Constitution needs updating for modern times.

Burning the flag? Is that really the legal decision we’re concerned with right now?

The flag burning discussion soon turns to campaign fundraising. Morgan describes the “problem as I see it” as “these Super PACs funded by billionaires effectively trying to buy elections.” “You can’t separate speech from the money that facilitates the speech,” Scalia tells Morgan.

On Roe v. Wade, Morgan asks, “Why were you so violently opposed to it?”

Scalia calls Bush v. Gore the most contentious decision with which he’s been involved and tells people to “get over it.” “Get over the possible corrupting of the American presidential system?” Morgan responds. Scalia reminds Morgan that Vice President Gore is the one who chose to bring the case to the courts to decide: “That was the only question.”

How’s this for a tease before the break?

Morgan says he read in the newspaper that Scalia and Justice John Roberts have gone from “best buddies to roaring enemies.” Scalia confirms that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is his “best buddy.”

Scalia says he’s offended by suggestions that Roberts’ Obamacare decision was politically motivated.

Confession time: Ever broken the law? Scalia admits to speeding occasionally.

Let’s skip the ridiculous “have many times have you been properly in love” question and get straight to Scalia’s love of 18th century political science. Morgan asks, “Why are you so convinced these guys over 200 years ago [the founders] were so right?”
