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.
