Rudy Giuliani on "The Tonight Show" returning to New York: "We have a lot more interesting people to interview than the West Coast"

He's pro-choice, and against medical marijuana. But above all, Rudy Giuliani doesn't believe in welching on a bet.

As such, the former New York City mayor appeared on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" Monday night, diligently handing Jimmy Fallon one hundred dollars.

"I lost a bet, I lost a bet, what can I do," laughed Giuliani, as he joined Piers Morgan on Tuesday.

Initially, the former Republican presidential candidate went on the record to say that Fallon would never land in the host's chair of America's most iconic late night program.

But as the "Saturday Night Live" alum settles into his new gig, Giuliani proudly paid his penance and feels it is well spent:

"For me, it was a couple of things. First of all, coming back to New York. When Johnny Carson left New York, I was heartbroken. Anybody that left New York, I was always opposed to," admitted the man who led the nation's largest city for eight years. "I loved going on the [David] Lettermann show because Letterman stuck with New York. I think it's fabulous that he's brought it back to New York. This is the place you should have these shows. We have a lot more interesting people to interview than the West Coast."

Watch the clip for more of Morgan's interview with Rudy Giuliani, including his analysis of Fallon as a host, and a television talent, and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.

    I was very disappointed that you would allow Giuliani to speak to the issues in Ukraine. This failed politician spoke with authority about something that he knew nothing about. The elections both presidential and parliamentary , were recognized as fair and legitimate by international bodies. It is the results of these elections the protesters are trying to overturn. I was an observer from Canada in the last election.

    The split in the Ukraine is not 75% pro EU as Giuliani says. The east and south are pro Russian. Russia is the major trading partner with Ukraine and the language of commerce in Ukraine is Russian.

    The party leading the demonstrations Svaboda was deemed a neo-Nazi party by the World Jewish Congress in May 2013. Is that the party supported by Giuliani?

    The next time you want to discuss an international event please get someone who knows what they are talking about . Or be silent. It is not enough to get a failed politician who lives down the street and wants some TV time to speak to an international issue.

      I agree with everything Mr. Carlan said about the arrogant and unqualified comments Rudy Giuliani made on Ukraine. But for me Is much more damning Giuliani "casual admission" that USA is (of course) deeply involved in bloody Ukraine uprising (which is at the moment effectively developing in a full scale civil war). Another Giuliani's damning statement is his public support for the undiplomatic, vulgar and "anti-EU" statements (recorded in "intercepted phone call" with US ambassador in Ukraine) from high ranking US, official Victoria Newland. Giuliani remarks on Ukraine should not be taken easily, because we are talking here about one- "high profile" and influential member of US ruling Democratic party, who certainly has some "insider knowledge" on current events, developing in Ukraine....

    "You can accomplish everything you want to accomplish with things other than marijuana, probably better. There are pain medications much superior to marijuana"

    Tell that to the people with Dravet Syndrome like Charlotte Figi. Or those with myoclonus diaphragmatic flutter like Chaz Moore. Yes there are more powerful pain meds. Horrible addictive and harmful pain meds. He denounces medical cannabis, which has many peer-reviewed studies showing it relative safety and medical efficacy, but endorses a company like Purdue Frederick, which manufactures OxyContin, a drug that people often trade in for heroin when they can't get it (they are related).
