"Piers Morgan Live, Rewind": Carl Lewis calls Chris Christie "insecure," Ben Ferguson calls Jordan Belfort a "scumbag," and former FLDS members on "escaping the prophet"

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.

  • Carl Lewis: Chris Christie "insecure" but not a "bully"

With the potential for additional Chris Christie scandals to surface in the wake of “bridgegate,” on Tuesday evening, famed Olympic athlete and UN Goodwill Ambassador Carl Lewis joined "Piers Morgan Live" to discuss claims that he, too, was a victim of the New Jersey Governor’s intimidation tactics.

The Republican governor had acquired national prominence for his tough, no-nonsense leadership methods, but in recent weeks others have stepped forward to suggest that Christie’s behavior is more akin to bullying than strength. Lewis told Piers Morgan that after initial friendly relations regarding a state physical education program, New Jersey's top politician attempted to thwart Lewis’s run for a seat in the Garden State Senate.

“He called me and kind of pushed me to get out of the race,” Lewis recollected. “He said, ‘We're going to go after you.’ I felt like he was trying to intimidate me to get me out.”

New Jersey Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno ultimately determined that Lewis did not meet the state’s residency requirements which dictate that Senate candidates must have lived in-state for at least four years.

Lewis, however, said he harbors no ill will, telling Morgan he doesn't necessarily agree with the label that's recently been slapped on Christie's back:

“I wouldn't call him a bully. What I think - what I got out of him, he is very insecure; someone who is using his power as governor now because of his lack of security.”

  • Leigh Gallagher to Piers Morgan: "You're mad"

On the heels of Piers Morgan’s polarizing interview with the real “Wolf of Wall Street” – Jordan Belfort – social media and pop culture alike have been abuzz with talk of the man who inspired Leonardo DiCaprio’s villainous, yet cautionary, character.

Since serving 22 months in federal prison for securities fraud and money laundering, Belfort has reemerged as an entrepreneur and motivational speaker. After Monday's conversation, Morgan admitted he'd consider investing with the one-time stoke-broker turned scammer. On Tuesday, the "Piers Morgan Live" host asked a pair of his guests for their reaction to his trusting claim.

“I think you're mad. I think you're absolutely mad,” said Leigh Gallagher, Assistant Managing Editor of "Fortune" magazine.

Conservative political commentator and radio host Ben Ferguson was equally skeptical:

“Look, I think he's one of those classic train wreck narcissists that you just can't take your eyes off of," said Ferguson, with a grin. "I wouldn't give him a dime of my hard-earned money because he's a scumbag.”

  • Escaping the Prophet

For the better part of the last two decades, the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS) has garnered notoriety for its purported abuse and brainwashing of followers; the religious sect’s leader, Warren Jeffs, was on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List before being found and convicted of two counts of child sexual assault.

On Tuesday night, Piers Morgan welcomed two former FLDS members – Flora Jessop and Brandon Jeffs – for a live interview from the host’s LA studio. Among other horrors, both Jessop and Jeffs told Morgan they suffered sexual abuse as children growing up in the FLDS community. Jessop was raped and impregnated by her own father, while Brandon Jeffs was sexually violated by his uncle – the group’s leader, Warren Jeffs.

Jessop told Morgan that although FLDS dictates total obedience and submissiveness in the name of eternal salvation, the abuse eventually gave her the will power to risk everything, and flee the FLDS compound:

“The pain in what I believed was heaven got to the point where I was willing to go to hell to escape it,” Jessop said.

Now free of the FLDS, Jessop has made it her mission to liberate and empower other victims of sexual and physical assault:

“It's not just the FLDS kids,” she told Morgan. “Abuse victims everywhere need a voice and they need to know they're not alone.”

And, while Brandon Jeffs may bare the surname of his sexual abuser, since his own escape from FLDS he has worked hard to leave his pain behind, now feeling that it's his duty to help others in similar circumstances:

“It gives me the power and the voice to say it's okay to stand up against the abuses that happened to me and others in the FLDS.”

    As soon as all players include their ante to the pot, they are dealt five playing cards, face down. In fundamental terms a poker RakeBack is a refund to the gamers. The betting size ought to be considered with regard to the pot.
