"Piers Morgan Live, Rewind": Anthony Weiner on the government shutdown, Star Jones and E.D. Hill on Ted Cruz

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.

  • Weiner: I was the glue that held the place together

After spending more than two weeks shut down, a reality that left hundreds of thousands of federal workers idle, the U.S. government is back in business.

On Thursday evening, Piers Morgan asked former U.S. representative Anthony Weiner, to offer his opinion as to why the government was driven to a shut down in the first place.

As part of a live, face to face conversation, Weiner boasted about the success he achieved during his dozen years in Washington:

“I was the glue that held the place together,” claimed the former Democratic congressman from New York.

Morgan then asked Weiner what Americans should expect with the next wave of government, a concept the 49-year-old addressed in foreboding fashion:

“Until the Republicans develop a sense of what it is they’re for and not just what it is they’re against," he said, "I think we’re going to keep having this problem.”

  • Star Jones on Ted Cruz: You can't be extreme

Sixteen days after firm debates, on Thursday morning Barack Obama signed a bill putting the government back in action, in the process funding the government and raising the debt ceiling through January 15.

In response to the developments, Piers Morgan invited conservative analyst E.D. Hill and attorney and commentator Star Jones to discuss one of the key figures in Washington's recent series of political skirmishes: Ted Cruz.

Turning to Hill, who like Cruz has ties to Texas, the "Piers Morgan Live" host asked for an assessment on the Republican senator many blame for launching political efforts to create the government shutdown.

“I think that Ted Cruz is in it for Ted Cruz,” said Hill.

Agreeing with her fellow guest, Jones suggested that the man behind the infamous "Green Eggs and Ham" congressional bedtime story, is more style than substance:

“If you’re going to lead then you have to govern and Ted Cruz is not about governing right now,” said Jones.

When the topic turned to Obamacare, Jones criticized Crus's fringe politicking:

“You can’t be extreme on the right or extreme on the left because you can’t find compromise in those two positions,” she told Morgan. “Ted Cruz, though he may stand in his own moral space, that’s not the morality of our country and it doesn’t benefit the United States of America,” Jones said.
