Stephen Colbert Mocks Tim Pawlenty for Declaring Candidacy to Piers Morgan (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Apr 14th 2011 7:40AM

'Colbert' Talks Pawlenty on 'Piers Morgan'Earlier this week, it appeared as if Tim Pawlenty had declared his candidacy for president on 'Piers Morgan Tonight'. However, once CNN began running promos for 'Piers Morgan' highlighting the declaration, Pawlenty's campaign said he had not yet officially announced his run for office, and CNN was taking the quote out of context.

On 'The Colbert Report' (weekdays, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central), Stephen Colbert presented a theory as to why Pawlenty's campaign issued the clarification.

"I do not blame them for trying to walk this one back," Colbert said. "Declaring your candidacy for president is supposed to be special. You only get to do it once. So you want to wait for that perfect journalist to share it with. Not just give it up for the first guy who asks. Certainly not to Morgan the Organ."

So Morgan tried to throw her off her script, asking whether there was something Obama could improve.

"If you were being critical, if you were giving him a halftime report," Morgan wondered. "What would you say, 'Go on, you could do better here.'"

"Well, I would say that he needs to be more cheerful when he loses to me in Scrabble," Soteoro-Ng answered.
