"Piers Morgan Live, Rewind": Bill Clinton on dysfunction in Washington and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani

Whether you fell asleep early, stayed out too late, or simply want to watch it again, we realize it's not always possible to get your entire "Piers Morgan Live" fix from television. As an answer to this, we offer the below labor of love – "Piers Morgan Live, Rewind" – dedicated and designed to getting you caught up and connected to the conversation.

  • Clinton on Dysfunctional Washington

Wednesday night on "Piers Morgan Live," former President Bill Clinton talked family, diplomacy, Bono and Ted Cruz.

Morgan asked about Clinton’s work with Newt Gingrich with regard to the last government shutdown:

“Well it was interesting. We worked it out when [Gingrich] was trying to run me out of town, when we were still working together…Once I realized what the deal was, I let him do whatever he could, and then we did business on the side.”

Clinton continued to describe, in Piers Morgan’s words, “this dysfunctional Washington”:

“This reapportionment has created a climate—particularly in the House of Representatives, but also in some of the states were they are basically one-party states—where they believe they don’t have to get anything done. They just believe that they have to demonize the opposition and say whatever they are going to say.”

  • Clinton on Rouhani’s Remarks

On Tuesday evening, Christiane Amanpour’s interview with Iranian president Hassan Rouhani sparked conversations with regard to his acknowledgment of the Holocaust. Clinton shared his opinions on the matter with Piers Morgan:

“Well, first of all, I think it’s an interesting commentary on the world in which we are living, that admitting that the Holocaust occurred qualifies as being a moderate.”

He continued to stress the point that, although this seems to be a step in the right direction – Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had repeatedly denied its existence – it wasn’t enough:

“At least we can have something to talk about. I was hoping, and I think the President was, that the opening of the UN would give them a chance to maybe even do more. “

    Go back to England. I don't care what you think about how we do things in this country. This is our process. We didn't like the way the King thought then (when we became this country) and I surely do not care what you think now. You are out of your element here – go back to judging wanabees!
