Huntsman hits Ron Paul where it hurts

On Wednesday's "Piers Morgan Tonight" Jon Huntsman hit back at Ron Paul regarding the anti-Huntsman tweet Paul sent out during the Iowa Caucuses.

"We found your one Iowa voter, he’s in Linn precinct 5 you might want to call him and say thanks,” read the tweet in question. It was deleted shortly after it was sent out and then put back up.

Paul was on the program before the segment with Huntsman and blamed the tweet on his staff. "That was done through staff. It was supposed to be good humor. And, I mean, I just didn’t think that was a big deal.... I was in the midst of a rally or speech when that was going on.... It was supposed to be something, you know, a little high-spirited, a little funny," he told Morgan.

When Morgan asked for Huntsman's response later on, the former governor of Utah took a dig at Paul and those racist newsletters he published throughout the 80s and 90s. "You’d think he would have learned the perils of ghost-written subject matter by now."

Now that's funny.

Huntsman went on to explain he actually found the tweet from Paul humorous. "I actually found it to be pretty humorous. … You’ve got to have a little bit of levity and humor in this business or you’ll go crazy," he said.
