READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
On the eve of the general election, this evening Piers Morgan invites John McCain to share his trademark brand of political candor and unfiltered insight.
Listening to a CNN video clip from earlier in the day, during which Robert Gibbs criticized the Arizona Senator for suggesting military personnel don't trust Barrack Obama, McCain said simply "the truth hurts, the truth hurts."
Appearing on "Erin Burnett OutFront," the former White House Press Secretary described McCain's words as "one of the more shameful comments I've heard in more than 20 years of being in politics."
This evening, McCain does not backpedal:
"It is the truth, I know veterans, I know our veterans. I've been traveling all over the country. Of course they don't trust him. Of course they know that on August 15th there was a meeting in the consulate in Benghazi and they sent back a cable saying 'in the case of attack, we don't think we can defend the consulate,'" McCain tells the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host. "What they're trying to sell flies in the face of the facts ... of course of veterans, of course our men and women in the military don't trust this commander-in-chief, and they have no reason to do so."
Himself an Obama adversary four years ago, McCain thinks that if Rommey suffers a similar fate, he'll have Superstorm Sandy to blame:
"If he doesn't [win the election], it may have been an act of God. It may have been the storm. This is what makes politics so incredibly fascinating."
Tune in tonight at 9 to hear more from McCain, as the Romney surrogate goes on to further detail what he describes as a cover-up in the aftermath of the attacks in Libya.

Screw you McCain. You bitter old guy.
Wow!!! How true. The man is insane and a criminal.
Criminal? How? Don't throw accusations out there without an explanation.
Yeah, act of God. Like in 2008 =) God spoke. He gave McCain the best gift to Dems ever: Sarah Palin. Bwahaha.
Why was McCain on TV ? he is such a looser.
This tell us more about Piers Morgan. Quite Pathetic Piers. You show lacks class.
God spoke. He washed Romney out.
McCain is a loser. He never said any thing truthful that's why you lost.
How much were you paid Pierce? To put losers on your show.
America voters are not stupid. Money does not buy votes no more.
Ohio voters voting for America
McCain and Gingrich are insane and white collar criminals. They are the downfall of our Country. The loud voice is a cover up.
We can see what Pierce is doing giving the Republican more air time.
President Obama 2012 is the winner.
Add trump to the lunatics.please piers disengage fromdonald
Why do you have the likes of McCain/Rudy/Newt/On the eve of the election you say your a bias reporter which it's clear your not at all. Most Brits are raciest and your one of them.All your guest are liars and your method of trying to sway this election won't work Nice try.
It's call racist. We can all see what Pierce is doing. Pierce kisses up to any one who will give him $$$$
Newt is a looser just like McCane. Why don't you PM invite Bush and gang.
Give Piers a break. He just wants to have the illusion, that he is also one of "them", you know, the powerful, the rich and the famous. That is why he kisses their....... all the time. I guess, tomorrow night, he will invite Trump, Giuliani, Gingrich and maybe Ann Coulter and Rush LImbaugh, to challenge them as usual with his really hard questions.... then maybe they will explain to him, that Mitt Romney lost, because the so called "liberal" media like CNN did not treat him fairly with their softball questions
When all else fails, play the race card. God bless America.
McCane brought God into it. That's what they always do when they are loosing. God was a way to keep the poor fearing when the rich controlled the Church.
Two copies of "character is destiny". In the recycling. Such poor character shown by McCain.
Newt is a loser. Will the next moron be Trump.
Republican voters voting for Obama.
John McCain is hilarious, I have never seen such a hot headed old man with senile dementia act so immature

Was there as much outrage then as there is now? If not, why not? Because Obama wasn't running for president when these attacks happened. It is a sad Republican political tragedy that is helping to divide this country.
Virgina voting for Obama.
Mahalo for the record. How soon he forgets. McCain is still hurting from his loss in 08. As for pierce I hear the brits don't really like him too. Can't wait to vote!
Brits like People like Mcain who is an honorable man. Unlike your President. I am sure ex-pats like myself and Piers are delighted in Obamas victory . You will now get a taste of what Britian has become and why people like us left the UK. I do hope you get a democratic house and senate and then he can really go to town. Good luck .
"Was there as much outrage then as there is now? If not, why not?"
Point 1 I see little evidence of the outrage you speak of, why is that so? Point 2. Because, the Democrats and their supporters (media) are, as usual, silent. People should be marching in the streets over the lies of this president and his refusal to acknowledge it was a ter rorist attack and that help was refused, it is a national disgrace. And, you can cite all the examples of as saults on the US, it does not alter the fact requests for military back-up during the attack on the US Consulate was denied, or that Obama refused to acknowledge the (9/11) attack on the Consulate was a ter rorist attack and not related to the video which caused world wide condemnation. Google, then listen to the father of Navy Seal Tyrone Woods – As an afterthought, I will never forget how Obama's face nearly hit the floor when he bowed to a Saudi Prince. Anyway, with the 'spell' being cast by the 'w itch doctor' from Obama's ancestral village in Ken ya, well it just might convince some Americans to vote for him !
I feel sorry for you...
Darcy, you are so right about those witch doctors!!!!I saw them myself flying across the Atlantic. Wait! they just stopped to rest near the Azores. They say they will be here on time to direct the elections in Florida and Ohio to ensure an Obama win. Accompanying them are his Anti Colonial father and his Mau Mau grandpa. Hide! They are coming to visit YOU!!
It is I that feels sorry for you – You deserve everything you get, and I don't want to hear you whinging and whining for the next 4 years, assuming Obama gets it !
You focus on what has been reported in international newspapers and mock! The remainder of my comment went right over your head, thats why you will never make much of yourself, it is people like you who probably are too lazy to vote anyway. Whatever happens, you deserve everything you get and if you remain in a hole for the next four years, well, serves you right ! You had the opportunity and squandered it !
Darcy, you may not be aware that there is an official investigation that is still ongoing into what happened in Bhengazi. This investigation is being carried out by very experienced folks at the State Dept. This is a non-partisan investigation. It is being led by Ambassador Tom Pickering who was a President Bush Republican appointee. The former Joint Chief Chairman Admiral Mike Mullen is also on the team.
Their investigation will be thorough, deliberate and pains-taking. It will be a while before they are ready to publish their findings.
Over the past couple of weeks both the State Dept and the CIA have been leaking bits and pieces of information which Fox have been reporting on. Generally, professional journalists wait until they can get their stories checked out through more than one source of information before reporting on them.
Because Fox is more of an entertainment channel, they are not as careful with how they report the news.
The real news channels are not reporting anything because there is nothing to report until the ARB report is published. At that time, I think you'll find that everyone will be going through it with a fine tooth comb.
One thing is for sure; whatever the report says, it will not satisfy Fox News. Fox have already written the story that suits their narrative and they are not going to budge from it. What happens then is, folks like yourself, who rely on Fox to to tell you about the world begin to make up stories – no matter how ludicrous or impossible to fit facts that are otherwise inescapable.
You are doing it yourself now. Reread the last sentence of your comment and try and imagine how insane it sounds to the rest of the world. Because it is insane, Darcy. It is totally insane.
I am well aware of the investigation. The assumption that my only source of information is Fox is pretty arrogant. There is a whole world outside of America and the internet is freely available to everyone – There is sufficient evidence to make an educated guess ! You wait and see.
"you wait and see" is a Republican meme that lost it's currency at 23.11 last night. I have heard nothing but "you wait and see" from Republicans as a response to all arguments they cannot win. "You wait and see the Romney landslide that Fox, Beck and Limbaugh promised me". Last night the American people made it clear they don't buy it. Fox, Limbaugh and Beck were revealed as the charlatans they are.
Acid test. Do you accept that? Do you accept that the people reject the Right's attempts to defame the President? Or are we going to get more torturous conspiracy theories about stolen elections and voter fraud and Kenyan whatever it was you were inferring. Get out of the Newscorp bubble and open your mind and eyes.
You just stated that Al Qaeda is on the rise, that is interesting since we go barely a 2 week period without President Obama taking out another group of operative with a drone strike.
You state that Al Qaeda is now on the rise again in Iraq...what do you mean by again? Without Bush's unjustified war, Al Qaeda would have NEVER been in Iraq!
It is a good thing that you were not elected President. If you were, we would have boots on the ground in Libya, Syria and we would be many times closer to an all out war with Iran.
You of all people should know better than to get the U.S. into an unwarranted, unnecessary war which should be an internal civil war between its people and government.
You repeatedly state we need more involvement in Syria and use the deaths of over 30,000 people as proof of that need. We right next to us there were over 20,000 people murdered in Mexico due to our own failed "war on drugs".
Just how many wars do we need to be involed Mr McCain?
Al Qaeda was not in Iraq? You are delusional. I suppose Al Qaeda is not in the USA either.
They were not there until we invaded and created a power vacuum for them to fill.
McCain became a old frustrated, hot headed, revengeful, vindictive hateful person since he lost in his disastrous presidential bid. John McCain has always been been a war loving, war crazy, war happy, warmongering, war nut. Thant GOD the old foold lost the election. He surely would of had the world into a nuclear war.
Shame on you McCain! Of all people you know that the Military always respects and trusts their commander in chief. They are not there to question but to follow the orders of their superiors and for you to repeatedly state that they have no trust is to give voice to any member of our armed forces that contemplates openly disagreeing with their commander. I am surprised that you allowed him to continue with this line of disrespect without questioning it's appropriateness, Piers.
Would you say the same of Hitlers Generals who your country executed .for obeying their commander in chiefs orders .
Ah! The nazi card – and played so early in the game.
Shame on you Pierce you are such a sleaze bag. You are as much of a sleaze as Trump and Donal.
Ohio voters voting for Obama
Didn't what McCain said used to be called providing comfort to the enemy during wartime? Didn't they used to call it treason? When did all that change? When did it become OK to defame the CinC and claim you were doing so in the name of the armed forces?
McCane is nothing more than a low life wicked racist.
Don't you think we the people should protest and demand McCane be charged for defaming the Presidant of United State?
McCain has had a lot of free passes because of his service. I think he just used the last one.
At least he can spell.
I think it's time that the GOP demand that McCain steps down.
So if Romney loses, the reason will be that God so did not want him to win that He destroyed thousands of lives to insure that result? God must really hate Romney. So, if God be against him, then who can stand for him?
Thomas Pererffy supports Romney. Who owns the Republica now.
Piers how dare you not challenge mcCain on his support of veterans benefits and health care. He has Not been a supporter check out his voting record. Disgusting . I had to check my channel. Sounded like Fox BS
Pierce need to Fox. Pierce will you please pull Trumps stupid wig of his head.
I think this is Fox Tv . I am turning it off.
Mr Morgan said it best about the power, it would have been a few weeks that it would been back on in England do we really want to go there?
Piers you are a pig.
Much respect to you and all your service, both military and civilian, Senator McCain. But you do not speak for all veterans, least of all me.
As an outsider looking in on the election, I can not believe how much biased reporting goes on. As far as McCain is concerned, yes the man is a war hero and rightly so. BUT being a hero does not give him insight or judgement with regards to who should be president.
I find it difficult to believe Mr. Romney is tied with the president in the polls after all the flip flopping he has made in his stances on the important issues. Do people forget that easy? Remember the 47 percent? I think that statement alone should have killed his campaign, but yet he is still tied in the polls. I'm astounded!
The world is watching....
Rob, unfortunately Fox, Limbaugh, and Beck control the right wing narrative – not facts, not a respected fourth estate. Facts are dismissed as MSM disinformation. The right live within a self perpetuating bubble of conspiracies, cover-ups and, primarily, fear.
Reblogged this on Bhekumuzi Mguni.
Mr. McCain, as a teenager, I wore my POW bracelet, never took it off until my POW came home when I was 18. Many years later, I had the honor to speak with him. He told me many things.
You have no idea what that meant to me.
He went on to have a career in law and passed on sereval years ago.
Wearing that bracelet kept me sane during the Viet Nam War.
I still have that bracelet and it is priceless to me.
Your comments one sided and pathetic.
Shame on you.
McCain is a has been, a bitter old angry racist...see his racist comments about the Vietnamese at http://www.asianweek.com/2000_02_24/feature_mccainapology.html
He should be wearing a white hood ^^^
Merci pour ce post , pouvez vous svp me donner plus d'info sur le sujet car j'ai fait des recherch tt le temps et je trouve rien sur les autres site. trés bon travaill
That's easy for you to say.
You deserve everything you get, and I don't want to hear you whinging and whining for the next 4 years, assuming Obama gets it !
It was a act of God that John McCain lost his presidential bid. McCain as hot headed, hateful, as he is. Plus the fact that McCain is a war loving, war crazy, war happy, warmongering, war nut! That certainly would of gotten the world into nuclear war. NOW THAT IS WHAT I CALL A ACT OF GOLD!
VA voters love Obama.
I love how people love to bash someone based solely on their party while obviously knowing nothing about them or their history. John McCain, with the exception of his horrible 2008 election bid, has always been a very bipartisan Rep. (really more of an independant), a maverick who's always spoke his mind (many times against his own party), served our country and was a prisoner of war, all to defend the rights of people like us that get to sit here and spew venom towards a man they know nothing about. Also, as an enlisted who's done two tours in the middle east, I would say that, for the most part, his comments are correct about how (most) of our military feels about our CiC. And for the moron that said it should be treason for McCain to say those things. he's EARNED the right to say whatever's on his mind, what's your excuse?
Hello Social Humanist,
I believe I am the moron to whom you refer. I truly thank you for your service and earnestly hope that you do not have to return to the Middle East. Given that President Obama brought the Iraq war to a close and has a timetable in place to bring the Afghan war to a close, it seems that's a possibility.
We've discussed quite fully our opinions on the extent to which we feel Senator McCain has spent his moral currency on cynical political and personal attacks on the President of the United States. We're all aware of his story.
I do not doubt for a second that you are correct in stating that the majority of enlisted men are anti-Obama. The percentages of partisan affiliation mirror closely the feelings of the prevailing demographic in civilian life.
For example, Marine recruitment for 2012 showed that around 80% of those who enlisted were male and white and came from southern states and mid western states traditionally thought of as predominantly republican by a ratio of just under 2-1. So no surprise there.
And I'm glad you think that I have earned the right to say whatever is on my mind. I like to think so too. Although I'm not sure whom you're addressing when you say "what's your excuse".
mc cain is very bitter..how many residences does he own? 7 ? & how many foreign cars? 13 ? ....& the state of AZ continues to elect him ...strange...no respect for the Pres,,,is he a patriot? unAmerican? ...
Nice to know that John McCain recognizes that God was against him and Romney and stepped in to stop them both.
So all of a sudden IM GOD NOW cause I voted for OBAMA? MY one vote among many others MAKES THE PEOPLE WHO VOTED FOR OBAMA GOD? If thats so ... THE CHANGE IS ON BUDDY! You better start repentin.
Seams McCain is losing it, perhaps it is time for him to retire with a bit of dignity, instead of ever increasing crazy rants.
I was stationed in Saudi Arabia when the US consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia was attacked. This coordinated attack left 5 dead and another 5 wounded. None of these were American....But should that matter. They were killed/injured in the defense of our consulate. I am still waiting for the congressional investigation for that event. All of the usual "security" expert (Senators) who are clamouring for an investigation into Benghazi were serving in the Senate at that time. Where were their outrage or labels for incomptence? I guess it did not fix their narrative. I am a retired officer from the military. It pains me to see Senator McCain reduced to a position of someone I now view as less than honorable. From his changing position on immigration to a nonsenseable position on Benghazi, call into question whether he has totally abandoned his moral high ground position that made him a voice of reason. Our current President has repeatedly authorized cross-border attacks in the pursuit of terrorists. Why would he now authorized the withholding of support in a life and death situation in Libya? It doesn't make sense and I believe Sen. McCain knows this. When you are reduced to tearing down our leaders just to elevate yourself, you surrender your moral high ground and maybe a lot of the patriotism capital you've earned over your lifetime of service. The Senator used to be better than that.
More and more commenters are indicating that they think McCain is insane, Alzheimeric. The investigational media should demand the brain scans required for correct diagnosis.
I am watching this whole thing on tv with McCain, Graham and I can not believe these people. McCain, I think you are so bitter it is making you John Mcinsane. You have gone over an edge and just can not come back. You survived far worse than anyone can imagine as a prisoner of war and you came home a hero, went on to be a senator. I was very proud of you! Sir, I have lost my faith in you. I did not see you do this when two towers in NYC fell and that idiot Bush knew nothing and went after Iraq... instread of Iran. That was for his Daddy. And you sir, SAID NOTHING!!!!!
Now, every time I see you- you seem like a bitter old man and I sir, am very happy you did not become our President!
You are less qualified for that job than the person you are going after for Secretary of State. Time to go home now John!
You have lost your crediability in my eyes. I know I am nothing in the world of politics except one thing- I AM A VOTER!
