Mike Tyson on the political pressures of being the president: "I don't know how many butts, how much you gotta be a brown noser to be a president"

With turkey and stuffing still roughly a day away, this evening at 9 "Piers Morgan Live" serves up a feast of an entirely different flavor, as Mike Tyson and his delicious menu of insight and candor join the program for a face to face interview.

When he last joined the program, roughy one calendar year ago, the man nicknamed "Iron" Mike vocalized his support for the president, specifically backing a healthcare plan that was forthcoming. On the heels of the well-documented failings of the Obamacare roll out, Tyson's tune has changed:

"This thing just really went horrible, didn't it? It really ... it's really bad."

The youngest boxer to win the WBC, WBA and IBF heavyweight titles, tonight's guest still believes in a universal plan, assuming the government can implement an effective one:

"If they can get the healthcare, but as of now it doesn't seem they can get it," Tyson tells Piers Morgan. "I was for it a hundred percent, but we just have to come to the reality that it didn't work."

But despite the political shortcoming that have plagued the White House in recent months, the 47-year-old father of eight maintains the positive influence Barack Obama has had in the African-American community:

"I don't know what it takes to become a president. I don't know how many butts, how much you gotta be a brown noser to be a president," notes Tyson, in referencing the literal politics of the position. "But just from his symbol, of looking at him, a Black man, in America, being the president, the most powerful man in the world. It's very positive, for young Black kids, like my son."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, then tune in this evening as the member of both the International Boxing Hall of Fame and the World Boxing Hall of Fame shares his feelings on the "N"-word, and the new trend "game" entitled "Knockout."

    Why is it that all these no-bodies that never were anything and never will be, join in with these out-an-out bigots to make racial slurs they think are humorous? My guess is they have no life of their own.

    First and formost, The left ain't right for US...........Piers needs an education on Black folks. All Blacks in America are not African-American (tell Oprah too). Almost all Blacks I talk to don't know that you must trace your ancestry back to the African slave trade. ie Mr. Obama, not African-American, as his mother was white and his father has no history of his parents becoming slaves that were shipped to the Americas. Michelle, I understand is, which makes her children
    African-American. (7) times the amount of slaves went to Brazil and (5) times as many went to Europe, than to North America.

    What was the most important requirement for a slave, sold by his tribe/family, to get sold for overseas shipment?
    They must have salt in their system. The buyers would "taste" the skin of the slave. The presence of salt allowed for the long trip as they could retain the small amount of fresh water rationed.

    Big cloths???? Sagging pants??? A result of slavery, as history repeats iteslf.
