Piers Morgan plays the presidential campaign equivalent of "Eff, Marry, Kill" with Jon Huntsman in a CNN interview that airs this week. In addition to talking some shizz on Mitt Romney and Rick Perry, Huntsman allows that he would run as vice president on the Michele Bachmann ticket if asked.
Not because he likes her or anything, ew, you guys — it's just because he loves our country so freakin' much, okay?
But he didn't close the door to possibly serving as running mate to Bachmann, saying "if you love this country, you serve this country. Every time I've been asked to serve over different administrations, from Reagan to the two Bushes, to President Obama, I have the same, the same answer, and that is if you love this country, you serve her. And so, you know, if you're in a position to better the country, to bring whatever background you have to bear, whatever experiences to use in fine-tuning our future, I'll be the first person to sign up, absolutely."
But Huntsman seemed to downplay his answer, adding that "this is a hypothetical conversation. And I give you more or less a hypothetical answer."
Just get off his back, okay, Piers? You're the one who invited him over for this dumb sleepover. Jon Huntsman thought you guys were just gonna have some fun playing "Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board" or maybe, like, busting out the Ouija board and contacting the ghosts of your great-great grandparents.
This is the crappiest party game Jon Huntsman has been forced into since Don Lemon made him play "Never Have I Ever."
