DESTROYED: Larry Elder Paper Shreds Piers Morgan Over Coddling Rachel Jeantel

Piers Morgan clearly has no qualms about inviting people on his show who fiercely disagree with him or even attack him personally, and tonight’s opening interview with radio host Larry Elder did not disappoint. Elder told Morgan his interview with George Zimmerman trial witness Rachel Jeantel was horrendous and “condescending,” and even told Morgan that he was being “stupid” for his assessment of Jeantel’s character.

Elder went on at length about underreported crime in Chicago, which Morgan agreed with, but he kept going on, even calling Morgan a “bleeding heart liberal,” until Morgan nearly shouted, “If I could just get a word in, that’s be great.” He attempted to call Elder out for “ridiculous things” he said about Jeantel, but Elder went on the warpath again, leading Morgan to remark he’s not in a competition for the “greatest filibuster in my show’s history.”
