On Tuesday evening, Piers Morgan welcomed filmmaker Michael Moore for a live, hour-long, exclusive interview. In response to the day's news that Sen. Harry Reid feels an assault weapons ban can't pass the Senate, the man behind "Bowling for Columbine" called upon an interesting adjective in describing the Senate Majority Leader:
"Harry Reid and these Democrats, this is not something that's unusual. Democrats have a history of backing away, backing down," explained Moore. "They're the ones that accepted the new math that majority meant 60 instead of 51. This attitude of, 'Well, we're not gonna be able to ... we're not going to get' ... We have these weenies on our side."
Staying on the topic of gun violence, and a potential assault weapons ban, Piers Morgan took the show to a second screen, pulling up a tweet from one of certain peace-loving celebrity:

In discussing the social media shared by the widow of the late Beatles legend, Moore continued to express his disdain for the politics standing in the way of gun legislation:
"A vast majority of Americans want the assault weapons ban. He [Reid] knows this," exclaimed the 58-year-old Michigan native. "What kind of balls does that take really, to stand in front of a microphone knowing that 55, 60, 65 percent and higher percentages on the other parts of the bill want this. Vast majority of Americans want this."
Meanwhile, as part of a program that marked the precise 10 year anniversary of the start of the war in Iraq, Moore took aim at former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, referencing a tweet from earlier in the day:
10 yrs ago began the long, difficult work of liberating 25 mil Iraqis. All who played a role in history deserve our respect & appreciation.

"He's [Rumsfeld] a war criminal, as far as I'm concerned. I don't understand why he, [George W.] Bush, [Dick] Cheney, [Paul] Wolfowitz are walking the streets. The way they're trying to revise history, and all this, by saying 'Well, it was a mistake' or 'We were given bad information,'" detailed the frustrated guest. "I'd be arrested if I produced false information. To say it's a mistake, you know, if somebody ran over your 4-year-old, they get out of the car and go, 'I'm sorry. Mistake.'"
