Star Jones on Anthony Weiner: "He's one tick away from being just a complete perv"

As Anthony Weiner's antics and activities continue to dominate local and national newspaper headlines, on Tuesday evening "Piers Morgan Live" asked Star Jones to share her candid commentary and unabashed perspective:

"You know, he's one tick away from being just a complete perv [sic], to be honest with you," explained the lawyer, and former "The View" co-host. "He likes young girls, as a matter of fact, and he doesn't like to be in the room with them, he likes to be in a room by himself talking to young girls. There's just something really a little ill about it. I wanted to stop laughing because you don't laugh at people who are sick."

A New York City resident, Jones took offense to the mayoral candidate's most recent campaign video, in which he explains his political persistence by saying "quit isn't the way we roll in New York City."

"He's annoying, excuse me. The first thing is, is stop putting yourself in the category of just like New Yorkers," she demanded. "Don't put yourself in the category of people like our first responders, who don't know how to quit. Don't put yourself in the category of people who show up and go to your house when it's on fire, to police officers, to teachers who are there in these schools and neighborhoods that no one wants to walk through. Those are the New Yorkers that don't quit. Not these ones that don't know when it's time to say goodbye and go. That annoys me."

Watch the clip for more of Piers Morgan's interview with Star Jones, including the portion in which she urges Weiner to "go on back to where you were," and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.

    Please educate yourselves on Concealed hand gun license that Ben appears to be the only one informed of! Mary and Pierce are less informed! A concealed hand gun license means it is concealed ON the person licensed! The gun is not lying around in a desk or classroom! THAT IS A HUGE part of the training! Please take the training to educate yourselves!

    We have doctors, counselors and mentors come into schools to discuss drugs, which are illegal! They discuss and show details about these drugs and what the consciences are. Why can't the military come in and teach our school children about firearms -that happen to be legal- and the deadly consciences? Lets educate our kids about guns the same way we educate about drugs!

    That teacher is the person you don’t want the day some nut walks in to the school with a gun, for your kid. She under the desk going so sorry pray it will be over soon. Sorry honey as they get killed. I want the teacher that puts my kid under the decks, and says stay there, I got this one. And shot and killed the nut, or dies trying to any way. There are to many cowards, to many bad guys with guns. When we came here, it was not and easy life. We did not do it be hiding, we made sure ever one in the family had a gun to save them self’s and the family. Why is it that we seem to want to go back the old way. Where the King men, pulled out of your home and killed you, for specking ill of him.

    I hope New York voters can see there is no room for them in Anthony mind. Anthony has shown us that no matter the consequences, his thirst for power will over-ride any normal decision making process. His wife, his son, his friends, his integrity, character...none of that matters to Anthony. Being the mayor of New York is his only goal today. Who knows what is goal may be tomorrow. It's difficult for "regular Americans" to understand the values and mindset of people who thirst for power. I think it could be said that his wife is of the same mindset as she as shown through her actions that she will choose the power position with Anthony's no matter how personal humiliating. She is in the same same position as Hillary Clinton (a close friend) and together they have chosen to keep the power over what to the rest of us would be unthinkable. Those with the quest for power as Anthony has showed, do not have the same personal value system as "regular Americans" I cannot fathom what I would say to my son as he returns home from his first day at school where is classmates have told him his dad pulled down his pants, took a picture of his penis, and posted it on the internet. If Anthony had the ability to think of his sons future surely he would have thought about the consequences and changed his course of personal behavior. This is a wake up call to "regular Americans". As citizen and voters we need to do due diligence when making choices in the voting booth. It is reasonable to assume that those running for office at any cost such as Anthony are unable to make reasonably choices when faced with decisions that may limit their power.
