Open Carry Texas Leader: ‘I Stayed Away From Extremist Comments’ On Daily Show Interview (Images)
Open Carry Texas President C.J. Grisham was interviewed by The Daily Show’s Jason Jones and they discussed the state’s gun laws and open carry. The Daily Show travelled to Texas just before the midterm elections and this show should be hilarious considering Jones’ past interviews.
I don’t think Open Carry Texas thought this out before agreeing to the interview. Here’s C.J. being interviewed by Jones, while standing on a box.
Size matters in Texas.
[su_center_ad]The segment should be aired during the week of Oct. 17th, according to OCT’s Facebook page.
“It was a good interview,” C.J. reveals on his group’s Facebook post. “It will show we are human and can have a sense of humor. I stayed away from extremist comments. My winning line was, “being armed while eating a piece of pizza gives me a peace of mind I won’t be a victim.”
Yes, because there’s nothing extreme about eating pizza while fully armed.
Even Open Carry supporters on the group’s page think the interview was a godawful idea.
Michael writes, “They will make you look like a joke. This was a bad move.”
Derek writes, “I’d be careful with Stewart. He isn’t in OCT’s corner and would like nothing more than to marginalize OCT as the “gun nuts” he thinks we all are!”
Luis writes, “This can’t be good.”
“[B]y and large, we still don’t do recorded interviews,” Grisham assures his supporters. “The few I do, however, I make clear they get one shot to be unbiased in their reporting.” [sic]
Right! I’m sure it will be totally “unbiased.” Has he ever seen The Daily Show? Stewart has been mocking the hell out of Republicans for decades and he’s earned 19 Emmys by ridiculing them.
Jason Jones will shred Grisham. If his “winning line” is “being armed while eating a piece of pizza gives me a peace of mind I won’t be a victim,” then he should prepare for the worst night of his life: the night this show is aired. Big thanks to OCT for admitting that your group’s comments are “extreme” but we already knew that.
I’ll just drop this right here.
Big thanks to my friend out there for the link. You rock. [su_csky_ad]
