Piers Morgan, the CNN host with the irritating Twitter feed, had a sit-down with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie last night. And while billionaire Warren Buffett really is a tired topic, Morgan brought him up in the interview anyway as the go-to prop for illustrating income inequality.
Christie responded by saying what was one everyone's mind, probably even President Barack Obama's mind. "The fact of the matter is that I’m tired of hearing about it," Christie said. "If he wants to give the government more money, he’s got the ability to write a check — go ahead and write it."
Morgan hadn't even technically asked his question yet, but Christie didn't care. "I know the question" Christie said. Morgan told him to prove it.
"Do you really think Warren Buffett needs as much attention from the government as the most vulnerable?" Christie guessed. Yes, Morgan ceded. That's what he was going to ask. Morgan's immediate thought: "...He's good."
"Since I got the question right, I’m not answering the question, how about that. That’s my gift for getting the question right," Christie said.
