Tonight, Sen. Kelly Ayotte talked to Piers Morgan about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's testimony at the Benghazi hearings earlier today. There "is still so many questions that went unanswered and frankly some unsatisfactory answers," the Republican senator said.
Clinton said "she was clear eyed about the dangers and threats in Eastern Libya but then she said that 'I didn't see any of the security requests,' which were multiple, coming from the consulate," the New Hampshire senator began. "If you are clear eyed about dangers and threats from Eastern Libya, why weren't you asking the questions about 'do we need more security?'"
On Tuesday evening, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed a live studio audience along with a full collection of guests to discuss the most important topics on the mind of Americans as President Barack Obama begins his new term in office.
At the top of the program, Piers Morgan discussed the news of the day including a new school shooting, this time at the North Harris campus of Lone Star College where three people including a school maintenance worker were injured.
Morgan spoke to Lone Star college student and EMT trainee Mark Zaragoza who, while treating the injured, realized he was caring for one of the shooters.
"When we got to the front of the campus, I found out that one of the gentlemen that I was trying to treat wounds on was the suspected shooter," said Zaragoza.
Later, author Suzanna Hupp joined the program and voiced her staunch support for gun ownership by using the argument of suicide. FULL POST
For all his profile pieces in everything from "The Daily Beast" to "CBS News," there is no media forum which truly signifies Piers Morgan's assent into the pulse of American pop culture more than a recurring presence on "Saturday Night Live."
During the final moments of Tuesday evening's show, the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host opened himself up for some good-natured ribbing, rolling footage of the most-recent NBC sketch to spoof CNN's favorite British television presenter:
As actor and comedian Taran Killam cued up his best British accent, and sidled up behind a very serviceable replica of the program's infamous green-themed studio, he began:
"Good evening. I'm Piers Morgan, or as you know me, the British Mario Lopez. This week, a series of shocking and confusing revelations. Who lied about what? Who is still hiding the truth? And who - what - huh - who - you - what - who..."
When the footage concluded, there stood the real Morgan, with a live audience – not knowing whether or not it was appropriate to laugh – sitting behind him.
Reviewing Killam's effort, the host shared his thoughts: FULL POST
