READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
Piers Morgan's guest tonight for the hour is comedian George Lopez, and the TBS host opens up about his turbulent childhood, the break-up with his wife and more. But he also talks politics – and his dislike for Sarah Palin. "If Sarah Palin becomes President at any point, I will say allegedly, I will move to Canada," he says. "I will go further North. I've been South, I will go further North."
So what makes Palin so popular? "Is it that maverick-ness?," Lopez asks. "Is it just that we've become a culture of personality? Do we elect somebody by their smile, rather than their content?" Watch the full interview tonight, 9pmET/PT.

Yeah, go on up to Canada and let them find you a new kidney and put it in your gut. wont be your wifes this time~It will take 2 years and you will probably be dead but alas itll happen. And with as rude as you were with Kirstie Alley and how she looked vs her content I would hardly say you are one to talk about others judgement.
someone's PMSing... jeez.
@Big Suz – Always nice to see another misogynistic comment from the liberal left.
Right Suzanne! Absolutely NOT a Palin fan (Can't stand her and think she's just a clone of W) but George, you are truly stupid! Try Europe...Maybe they'll take you, cause Canada and Mexico surely won't!
Ha Ha Ha. Now that's a funny joke! Or is it that Lopuss has no huevos?? What a MACHO MAN!
Can you do me a favor and leave now? BTW, take Barbars Streisand with you too. Please.
wasn't she leaving if George bush got elected? Maybe she forgot.....
Let's not forget Robert Redford....
Hey, George do the USA a favor and Leave now
No YOU make the USA a favor and STFU LOL
I don't blame George for saying this about Palin. She takes stupidity to an entirely new level. I think she appeals to so many Americans because they identify with her ignorance and are intimidated by other more intelligent public figures. The only difference between Palin and a redneck hillbilly is that she still has her teeth. The woman is an incomparable idiot and there's no getting around that fact. It's a true miracle that she ever got as far as she did in life and I think she did this on her looks alone.
And your post just reeks of your superior intelligence...
and, since when was 'intelligence' a bad thing? Right now, there's not enough!
@Kim, wow, you reinforce the stereotype of left wingers in this country. People are intimidated by more intelligent public figures? Like who? The community organizer president we have?? I don't think so. I would bet that you consider yourself an open minded tolerant person yet you know as well as I do you are the exact opposite of that. You lefties are a laugh, can you say hypocrite? I knew ya could...
@ KIM, wow kim, you just prove the theory of: "it takes one to know one" by the statement that you said of: "she is an incomparable idiot and there's no getting around that fact."
You kim are a more incoparable idiot then she is. Mr. Lopez is saying that he wants his politicians to know about politics, look into obamas background and see who has more experience as a politician. I'm looking forward for his early departure.
kim: Your jealousy is showing. It must really gnaw at you, knowing that this stupid hillbilly,Sarah, is more successful than you, richer than you, more famous than you, more influential than you, prettier than you, and yes, even more intelligent than you. How it must hurt...knowing that you are a NOBODY, who can,t even write a sensible comment.
Well George we really don't want you here in Canada. You talk about people electing policticians based on personalities what about electing your current president. Not much content there either! Time to think before making such a silly statement.
Tell him to leave now. It's not like anyone will miss him! But they probably don't want him in Canada either. Maybe he could go to South America.
Now I have a reason to vote for Palin
I wasn't going to vote for Palin but now he has given me a reason to.
You want your politicians more political? Moron...she was GOVERNOR...Barack was a community organizer, and barely a senator in IL...
Since when did Obama have a good political background before he was elected? And it's not like he is doing any good right now...
George, George, Geoge....Just because you have a low-rated comedy show, you think you have the right to speak that way about a major political figure in OUR Country?
WE are the majority of Americans. We are not celebrites who advance their own agendas under the guise of "entertainment." But obviously, the concept of being an American is one you have not embraced. An American is someone who understands our system; it is not perfect; it is flawed. But it's the BEST the world has to offer. Americans work with the system, work to get the proper people elected, and keep our freedoms intact for the next generation.
George, I sincerely hope that you are not making empty promises, because I am sure the majority would like to hold you to your word. I wish you the best of luck and I'm sure you'll make plenty of Pesos to support the lifestyle you enjoy in OUR Country.
Don't let the pinata hit your butt on the way out. What a silly man you are!
We do not need the jerk in Canada. It really does give people a good reason to vote for Sarah Palin. Mr. Lopez try Mexico.
How ignorant you are George-and who cares about any of your views anyway. Canadians are smart. I doubt they would want your filthy mouth and jokes and inferior atempt at comedy. Go back to where you came from or from where your ancestors came from. you are an embarrasment to this country ( spoken by a hispanic born in the USA)
Don't let the door hit you in the ***.
I'm not going to waste my breath trying to make Lopez make sense. He's a trainwreck. But, since Mazda is a major Sponsor for Lopez Tonight, I'm pretty sure which dealership I will not be visiting next month.
I guess Lopez doesn't like our election process. In that case maybe he should leave now and take a few illegals with him. The majority of the country doesn't like Obama either but they deal with it. Thats America!!
Wow...I think I found a reason to vote for Palin.
Great interview Piers to show how stupid Lopez is. Canadians don't want you Lopez. Who do you think you are? Cheating on your wife after giving you a kidney. You are not funny but insulting. And you want your politicians to have political backgrounds. I guess you did not know what Palin did in Alaska. And I guess you did not do your homework on Obama who did not have a big political background but just spewed what you wanted to hear. He is not a leader. You just infuriate people with you stupidity. Go back to Mexico...ooops they don't want you either.
Gee, I thought I was the only one who felt this way about Lopez!!! Glad to see I'm not. Please leave now, don't wait til Palin is elected. And please take all the illegals with you. (Spoken by someone who lives close to the border and has been broken into).
Someone check George's green card....
George, really love it ! we would welcome you to Canada! but let's hope that she doesnot get elected!
Hurry up and get your hairy a** to England. You will fit right in with Englands "Muslim Problem". You can march with them,demanding "Sharia Law". America is for Americans. All liberals, and "illegal Mexicans" can leave NOW! You are not wanted here!
All Americans should boycott Lopez. Liberals are such "crybabies". If they don,t get their way, They will leave? If they are expecting us to beg them to stay,they are in for a surprise. We are begging them to keep their word, and get the hell out!
Let's see George. You want someone with proven political experience? How about someone who's been a governor? How about someone who's gone to bat against oil companies and won? How about someone who's stood up to the Republican party for the good of the state? How about someone who's run a business? How about someone who's kept a government budget in check? How about someone who's worked in city government?
Oh.......wait. That's Sarah. Now what were Obama's credentials?
Go to Canada. And take Robert Redford and all the other liars who haven't gone there with you.
First of all George Lopez was BORN in CALI lol he is AN AMERICAN. His ancestors are Mexican. He is considered an American-Mexican. Second of all I can't stand Obama. I believe that he ruined this Country HE WILL NOT GET MY VOTE either will Palin. We need someone who is SMART, someone who can turn this mess around again & make it right. I have NEVER seen this Country this messed up EVER. Also why would WE AMERICANS want someone that does NOT RESPECT our FLAG to run OUR COUNTRY ? We have the right & power to KICK OBAMA out in 2012.
Go google all of the President's & you will see all stand in front of American Flag while giving a speech BUT OBAMA. There is also a pic on google of Hilliary & Bill on stage with Obama as well as other people & Obama is the ONLY ASS HOLE that is NOT saluting our flag. WE do NOT need OBAMA to waste OUR HARD earned money like he has been doing. Recently throwing a $30,000 birthday bash. Come on Really ?
One more thing.... HOW come we can't even get a glimpse of Osama's ""DEAD"" body ? Hell Osama / Obama what is the difference ?
I intend to vote for Sarah Palin anyway but now I will try to convince everyong I know to vote for her also if it will rid us of Mr Lopez. He only showed his ignorance and he surely is ignorant. He apparently knows NOTHING of Sarah Palins record as a politician. She certainly had more experience than our present president.
I suggest that we all boycott anything to do with George Lopez, including Piers Morgan's show. George, why wait until Sarah is elected? Why don't you leave now. Good riddance. No one will miss you.
Does anyone know if Mr. Lopez is a man of his word? Can we count on his leaving?
George, Your response to Piers that you did not like Sarah P because you like your candidates to have political backgrounds......Is there something wrong with that statement? Where have you been, man, I am not for Sarah Palin being President but I believe she has had more of a background in politics than the Big Guy.
I'll vote for SP just to get rid of this idiot....but you know if she were to win, George wouldn't leave..........just bs
Watched a little of PIerce's interview w/ George Lopez. Disagree w/ his opinion on not many Latino's on TV. There's plenty of Lantinos in various TV series, National News Programs to local TV programs.
So...Not enough "Latinos" on TV? So Lopez is another of those who group people together according to their race? Just Another RACIST just like Jesse Jackson!
did anyone notice that Lopez said he didn't think he needed a political background to run for office but then when asked about Palin he contradicted himself and said he wanted his politicians to have a political background to run for office. Morgan is an idiot for not catching that and pointing that out to Lopez !!!!!
Yes, I noticed...and judging by the look on Lopez's face, he realized what a blunder he made, too. Morgan should have definitely gone after him for this!
Before saying Lopez is moving to Canada, he might want to check out if Canada wants him...I don't think so!
George Lopez wants to move to Canada if Sarah Palin will run for President because she doesnt have political background likewise he wants to run for mayor of Los Angeles without any political himself.
Piers whimped out when Lopez said he wanted his politicians to have a political background? That's when he should've said, "Hmmm, I thought Sarah Palin did have some executive experience as a Governor, the head of the Alaskan National Guard and took on those in her party over energy issues". He went TOO easy on him at that point. Why? Lopez, Cher all of them that threaten to leave do just that. Theaten. Typical emotional rollercoaster liberals. We need people who are leaders and can make decisions. Community organizers need not apply.
Piers suffers from the same disease that has afflicted David Letterman and Joy Behar, he has PDS (Palin Derangement Syndrome), and George Lopez is an idiot if he would move to Canada. If Palin got elected she could hardly do worse than Obama.
Piers says it would be scary to elect someone because of their smile, yes Piers it would, we elected Obama, nice smile, no experience, no resume, radical leftist friends, a person who hides his past, it is scary what he is doing to this country. I may leave if he gets re-elected. WAKE UP AMERICA!! WAKE UP PIERS & GEORGE!!
Jorge said that he wanted to be Mayor of LA because didn't believe you needed to be a politician to know what needed to be done, and that LA was his city. Within about 60 seconds, Piers asked Jorge about Sarah Palin, and in explaining his loathing for her he said he liked his politicians to actually have political experience. You could see about halfway through his answer he realized the contradiction in what he was saying but it was too late. Guess what, Jorge? I agree, politicians should have some experience. Please take your corny sitcom shtick and your conformist, thoughtless celebrity views up to Canada now. Maybe all of La Raza will follow you.
Lopez won't move to Canada!
We don't want him here!
Well that another good reason to Vote for Sara Palin... and by the way Jay Leno is funny and you not...
