Former GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich joined Piers Morgan tonight, along with former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm, to debate last night's presidential debate.
As we look ahead to tomorrow morning's job report, Morgan asked Granholm and Gingrich to take an honest look at the unemployment numbers under Barack Obama. "This is the lowest male participation in the workforce since they began keeping records," the former speaker of the house said. "People have been dropping out."
The host of "War Room with Jennifer Granholm" shot back at Gingrich:
"It's the policies of the Republicans that are completely trickle down, hands off, laissez-faire, which means that you don't do anything to try to get manufacturing jobs in this country," she explained. "You want to know why there's lower male participation in the workforce? It's because we've lost so many manufacturing jobs."
A more pressing matter to the host of "Piers Morgan Tonight" was the Twitter trending topic of "Sesame Street" and the concern that if Mitt Romney becomes president he would "kill" Big Bird.
So should Big Bird live or die?
"I would save Big Bird by liberating Big Bird from the bureaucracy," Gingrich said.
"Big Bird lives!" Granholm exclaimed.
