    Mr. Morgan: I do not know why you are giving Donald Trump an interview and I will not be watching it. Donald Trump likes attention and his resurrecting birthing issue is just that. When our country has so many compelling and important issues, it is sad that you and the rest of the press (and Mr. Perry) focus on this ridiculous topic. It is one reason I find myself turning off CNN more often. I want to hear REAL news and issues, not this garbage. Let's move on!

      I couldn't agree more with you Mary. I will boycott Pierce if "Tramp" comes on again!

      Obama is the worst president wall street ever invented. They had Trump on TV because many many agree with him, except on this liberal rag

    MARY SCOTT, I COMPLETELY AGREE!! I used to love CNN too, not now. Anything having to due with Trump is an insult to all Americans.

    I think I am going to vomit if I hear again Trump talk about Obama's birth certificate. Pierce Morgan, you should not give Trump the air time for this drivel!

    Piers this is one of the worst interviews you have ever done. Trump? Seriously? Talking about President Obama yet again.
    It really makes me wonder what really bothers him so much about this President.

    l like Trump's idea of slapping a 25% tax on all imports from China but Piers failed to ask the critical, " What do we do when they retaliate by reducing their puchase of our Treasury Bonds ?", that we depend upon so urgently to cover our ENORMOUS trade imbalance with China.

    I just thought it was curious how Donald Trump made many times reference to the bad presidency of Obama, treating Obama as "negative force" every time he was asked questions about Herman Cain. It means to me that Donald Trump has even made up his mind to never endorse any black man to be President of the United States. Trump is only smart enough to know how to hide the racist side of himself. Yet smart people can always understand who Donald Trump really is. We do respect him for his talent in business. Other than that ...

    It was quite obvious to me that Piers was not enthused with anything Trump had to say and appeared relieved once the interview ended.

    I would have loved to have heard what Donald Trump had to say but unfortunately he kept being cut off and constantly interrupted by Piers! A good interviewer is a good listener! I stopped listening to Bill O'Reilly years ago because of this!
