As Hillary Clinton was released from the hospital on Wednesday, "Piers Morgan Tonight" invited Kiki McLean to share her reaction to those who questioned the legitimacy of the Secretary of State's condition.
As various members of the Republican Party suggested Clinton was using her health to avoid dealing with controversy surrounding Libya, even going so far as to call her illness the "Benghazi Flu," McLean made no attempt to hide her outrage:
"You know what my really complicated analysis of that is?" the former senior adviser to the Hillary Clinton for President campaign asked guest host Wolf Blitzer. "They're stupid. People who go out and generate rumors and lies are stupid. And they shouldn't be doing so on national television, and they shouldn't be doing so at the real risk of someone else's health. And Hillary Clinton is somebody who recognizes not only the responsibility to the job she has, but her role in public life and that's why they've made sure folks knew what's been going on and for those guys to go out and do that, really, a former ambassador said that? A member of Congress said that? A national journalist?"
Also as part of Wednesday's program, Blitzer switched his focus from political theater to pop culture, inviting a panel of experts to discuss the entertainment world's hottest current topic: the unborn child of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
Referencing the recently-announced pregnancy of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and referring to the West-Kardashian conception as "America's royal pregnancy," guest Margaret Hoover marked the stark differences between the two couples: FULL POST
Roughly two months since the devastation wrought by Superstorm Sandy, on Wednesday evening "Piers Morgan Tonight" invited Ray Marten and his family to share insight on Congress' refusal to move forward with a vote that would provide aid to those impacted.
Joined by his wife Linda and their four children, Marten expressed intense displeasure with the lack of progress on relief efforts:
"It's disgraceful. It's unconscionable. It's two months since the storm has hit. I'm quite frankly amazed that it's taken this long to address," said the man who lost his home to a fire as part of the storm. "It should never have come to this point. It should never have been on the heels of the fiscal cliff. This is something that should have been addressed within days if not a week or two after the storm had hit."
Joining guest host Wolf Blitzer, the Bell Harbor, New York resident pledged to speak out if he and his neighbors aren't promised help in the near future: FULL POST
