This is one of the most pitiful, sad excuses for baiting a sitting governor I’ve ever read; and had these little gems:
Levi Johnston: We’ve got people camped outside the house and in front of my sister’s school and that kind of thing. It’s pretty crazy.
King: Are you surprised at it?
Johnston: I lived back in a small town. So I mean I never thought that would ever happen to me. And when she [Sarah Palin] finally told, everybody that Bristol was pregnant and stuff, I didn’t think it was going to get this rough.
Yes, Larry, you blithering idiot; an eighteen year old kid from a small town in Alaska finds it bewildering that the media are camped put in front of his home and his sister’s school. Frankly, I find it bewildering, too. Isn’t the damned campaign over? Don’t they have better things to cover, like the collapse of the capitalist system or something?
King: When it began to be sexual and romantic [with Bristol], did the governor know?
Johnston: You know, I’m not sure. That’s a question I can’t really answer. But, you know, I think…
King: What do you think?
King: What about her husband? Do you think he knew?
Johnston: I would think so.
Jeez Louise, Larry! Bait the poor kid, why don’t ya? What, are the Palins mind-readers or something? Maybe they actually were trusting Levi and Bristol to do the right thing and abstain, perhaps?
King: Where did sex occur? In their house?
Johnston: You know, Larry, that I’m a gentleman. And I don’t kiss and tell. So I don’t think that really matters.
Larry King, you are a cad, a schmuck, and a cadaverous creepy voyeur. What else do you want to know — positions? Spermicides? If they make noise?
King: We know that one time that didn’t happen. Were you surprised at the pregnancy?
Johnston: A little bit, yes. It came as a bit of a shock.
What — you weren’t paying attention during sex education classes — or at the Abstinence Classes at church? Or both?
King: How did you tell Sarah?
Johnston: She was shocked. I mean she probably didn’t really know what to say. No mother wants to hear that her her daughter is pregnant at 18 years old.
King: So what happened?
Johnston: I don’t know what happened. I think somewhere along the lines, we just weren’t hitting it off anymore and…
King: But they won’t let you see your kid?
Johnston: No. I can go over there and see him. But it’s kind of an uncomfortable thing for me to go over there. You know, I want to be able to take him and do that kind of thing, go do the father thing with him and I can’t.
King: Why can’t you?
Johnston: You know, I’m not sure.
King: An e-mail question from Russell in Wilson, Oklahoma, “Levi, how much child support do you have to pay each month?”
Levi Johnston: I’m not doing any child support right now until we go to court. I have everything my boy needs back home: diapers, toys, everything.
King: Sherry, in December, shortly before Tripp’s birth, you were arrested on drug charges, right? What is the status of that case?
Sherry Johnston: I can’t go there right now. When I have my day in court, then I would love to be able to set the record straight. There’s a lot of misconception out there, but I can’t go any further than that right now.
Let’s see — how shall I count the ways? You (a) got their little girl pregnant, (b) reneged on your promise to marry her, (c) haven’t finished high school, (d) don’t have a job, and (e) have a mother facing drug charges — which means your home isn’t safe for the baby to visit, let alone live in.
Gee, I don’t know why anyone would be uncomfortable with that — let alone somebody whose mother is the Governor of the state.
NOTE to the teenage girls of the world: I don’t care how much he says he loves you, Doctor Laura was right. Without a ring and a date, he’s just another hrny teenage boy who will promise the moon and leave you in the wind.
And who told Larry King that Levi couldn’t see his son? Isn’t anybody at CNN actually doing Journalism anymore?
King: Do you have a lawyer?
King: Why not?
Johnston: We’re not in a big fight with the Palins. I still like the family very much. I think we can work things out. I don’t think either one of us want to go to lawyers and try to fight for custody and stuff like this.
King: When was the last time you saw Tripp?
Johnston: A couple weeks ago.
Oh, the judge is going to eat this kid alive during the child support hearings. No Lawyer — doesn’t visit his child — what a great catch he must have seemed like.
You know, with any luck at all we might be able to get Levi and Bristol on Judge Judy to get this settled. I’m sure Levi would jump at the chance to be on TV again — he does for every other show — and it would be worth it to watch Judge judy rip him to shreds.
King: She [Bristol] seems to be really ticked. Is there something you did?
Johnston: That might be the case, but I don’t see what it would be.
King: In other words, you have no idea why she’s angry?
Johnston: No. I think it has a lot to do with her and my sister. She [Bristol] doesn’t trust who she hangs out with.
Like the Drug Dealers? Or not paying child support? Or not marrying her? Or not bothering to come visit your son? Just pick one of them, Levi, you moron. Larry, you’re no better.
Johnston: I haven’t talked to her for quite a while, actually.
King: Well, wouldn’t you want to know what part she’s playing in not letting her daughter see your son?
Johnston: Yes, that would be nice. I mean, my dad talks to Todd a lot. And after we did that first interview with Tyra [Banks], he hasn’t — he hasn’t called, you know. And they just pretty much blew us off. So it’s just getting worse.
Gosh, I wonder why? Couldn’t be that you’re embarrassing Bristol and her family making an ass of yourself on national TV?
Naaaaaahhhhh, couldn’t be that.
I’m sorry, but these media jackals — yes, jackals — are the worst sort of predator. Baiting a teenage boy and girl and their druggie mother. Flying them around the world and paying for their food and lodgings is a powerful motivator for some backwoods Alaska kids.
I’m sorry, but Jesus could do an exclusive interview on Larry King at this point and I wouldn’t watch it.
What would i have liked to have heard Larry King ask Levi Johnston? Oh, I dunno . . .
- When are you going to marry her?
- Why did you back out of the marriage, you schmuck?
- Was she just another piece of ass to you, or was she the first girl you screwed and lied to?
- Why have you chosen to be a deadbeat dad and not pay for the support of your child?
- When you smoke weed and get high, does your mom sell it to you, or does she give it to you for free?
