Morgan, a seasoned journalist whose exploits include filling a judge’s seat on the reality show America’s Got Talent, faltered, quite comically, against the former Minnesota governor’s intense line of questions and facts, trying in vain to dispel a majority of what the truth advocate was saying.
Here’s a transcript of what took place:
Morgan: “What would you have done on September the 12 2001? What would you have done if you’d have been president?”
Ventura: “I would have done a legitimate investigation to find out what exactly happened on 9/11. How did they know who did this so quickly like they did Lee Harvey Oswald? How quick they know Lee Harvey Oswald killed Kennedy.”
Morgan: “We knew who did it because the people who did it were identified and we knew who they were.”
Ventura: “Well then why couldn’t we have stopped them before hand if they were identified and we knew who they were.”
Morgan: “It was a failure of intelligence. Everyone’s accepted that.”
Ventura: “No it wasn’t. We knew before with Condeleeza Rice’s memo in August 6th when it stated right in the memo: “Bin Laden to steal planes and run them into buildings.” And more stuff is coming out now also, how much the Bush administration ignored the intelligence. It was almost like they ignored it cause they wanted it to happen.”
“Oh come off it, Jesse,” Morgan stammered as the audience began applauding.
“Every war fought starts with a false flag operation,” Ventura finished up to scattered applause.
When, astoundingly, Ventura pointed out the BBC’s televised blunder during the 9/11 broadcast as it seemed to “predict” the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 half an hour before the building actually came down, Morgan dutifully bumbled to maintain the innocence of his nation’s beloved news organization: “If you’re trying to make out the British Broadcast Company, one of the most respected news organizations in the world, was inventing huge buildings falling over you need to have a break Jesse.”
At one point in the interview, which admittedly turned into more of a debate, Morgan criticized Ventura for making “crackpot points,” at which point Ventura turned to the audience and asked, “How many people here think I make crackpot points?”
Only one person in the audience agreed.
He next asked, “How many think I make sensible points?” which received a positive eruption of audience applause.
If Ventura’s appearance is any indication of what his announced independent 2016 presidential campaign is going to be like, it’s shaping up to be a wild, exciting ride.
