Amidst continued recovery efforts following Superstorm Sandy, coupled with the upcoming general election, on Friday night Piers Morgan welcomed Rudy Giuliani for an energetic and impassioned live interview from Ohio.
The former Mayor of New York City has been a staunch supporter of Mitt Romney, and used his "Piers Morgan Tonight" platform to level heavy criticism on Barack Obama.
Suggesting that the president misappropriated his time by spending it on the campaign trail rather than directing efforts towards assisting victims of the storm, Giuliani channeled his inner Joe Torre by tossing out a baseball metaphor:
"Maybe the first couple of days, he was keeping his eye on the ball," said the one-time GOP presidential candidate. "But we got gas lines now that are a mile long. We got bodies still being discovered and we got a president who is playing, you know, 'campaigner-in-chief.'"
As part of Friday's program, Morgan also invited Gail McGovern to address concern regarding delayed responses and resources to some of the areas hit hardest by Sandy:
"My heart goes out to the people on Staten Island and the people up and down the Eastern Seaboard," said the President and CEO of The American Red Cross. "And I completely understand why the people in Staten Island are frustrated."
"We're frustrated, too," she continued. "We had sent out emergency response vehicles before this cry for help came. But I completely understand why folks are frustrated. And we were able to break through yesterday. The roads are snarled. There are fuel issues. We're sending volunteers from all over the country, almost all 50 states."
Watch the clips, and listen to the interviews, as "Piers Morgan Tonight" continues to detail the devastation, and subsequent recovery, amidst the aftermath of "Superstorm Sandy."
