I he's going to what is in town right here in New York City on the eve of his speech to the United Nations General Assembly am while the White House has yet to schedule a single meeting with any world leaders this trip.
The president was able to find time to sit down with the ladies of the deal now that interview will help air tomorrow exactly.
Two weeks after a terrorist attack claimed the lives of our ambassador Libya and three other Americans.
Now perhaps President Obama should revisit his priorities and joining me now to talk about that much more is the peace and freedom party's 2012 presidential nominee.
The author of -- anarchy dispatches from the not farm the always outspoken actress entertainer -- Mario.
Hi I'm thank you for having me on your show.
Our advice I wouldn't I go back I watched few years ago when you did stand up that you have this major hit television program.
Should I take that is this to be taken seriously or do you really want to be elected president of the United States.
Yes I'm very very serious I'd say I'm the only serious comedian in the presidential race.
And that I'd like to take this opportunity to.
To ask both Romney and Obama to -- -- me.
Because I think that both of those guys I think that that the American people are being yet being given a false choice.
Because the choice between the lesser of two evils is a false choice it's not a natural choice.
And I think that peace and freedom act and and solutions economic solutions.
That involve investment in our own country first.
Are there things that I offer and that I want to talk about so I think yes I'm very very serious and now.
I away oblige people to incorporate these I I -- these ideas.
End this election right iPhone you're -- -- you you're running as a socialist.
On -- on the peace and Freedom Party and part -- I do think that we needed a little bit more socialism in this country at this time.
We need to move.
Staff from the top to the metal and the bottom because it keeps on staying at the top and how do you -- the -- -- -- -- stuff from the top down to the metal.
And people deserve something back by the taxes they pay.
So so the for example we now have over a tax system these are just facts 10% pays almost 70% of the federal income tax bill.
Is there a limit in terms of the wealth that you would put on people in other words would you say.
After X number of dollars you got in the government's gonna confiscate your wealth.
How much of out of every dollar should the highest tax individuals be able to -- Should they be able to keep fifty cents of every dollar -- six.
Well I think that we should have a fair tax and I think that all of this stuff it it is a big dialogue that we need to -- I know that I pay 48% of my income to -- as.
And you know I wouldn't mind -- -- -- that wasn't going just export war if I was actually going to help the people of the United States I would gladly pay more.
Would you disarm America would you unilaterally disarm.
Absolutely not I'm not a pass a fast.
And you know I would guess that I I think that one war war is wage for prop -- wearing trouble.
And I do think that that's the corner our country it has been back in until.
Add that you know with all these privatizing of prisons and privatizing a military I don't think that's a good idea and I think most Americans agree with me.
The people themselves take it you -- the taxpayers and the people.
Of this that this country the citizens we need to have our government back so that it's not just the government -- lobbyists and special interest all right.
Obviously you'd be in dot I wasn't sure who to expect tonight because I know -- very funny -- comedian you're an actress.
And I've been following your campaign on the periphery in preparing for this interview with you tonight -- I wasn't sure who is gonna show up.
And you what you see you say you want to be taken seriously you've thought about these issues -- laying out -- your ideas.
How can people do that though I don't -- put up on the screen just three of your tweets for example because they're very hard hitting -- Well okay well for example once is most billionaires are violent -- of files and consumers a violent.
Peddle porn and they get a kick out of being heartless bankroll an empty cocaine addicts.
You talk about smarmy -- -- lived off the government his whole life and grown rich from entitlements then and tax welfare comes out of the racial closet anyone who.
-- -- folate deserves to get cancer.
And that a short a come from meeting ended by that and I.
Antibiotic filled tortured chickens for Christ.
So outlook -- know how do you get taken seriously when you -- billionaires had a files Mitt Romney has more on government -- whole life.
Yes he's always -- for the government.
He he's always been on the government dole he's been a politician for a hundred and it worked for Bain Capital yeah he's always.
What paying cash -- in an export.
While exporting exporting our jobs and taking you know our jobs away from our country and seven and that didn't happen when he was there Roseanne.
It most certainly did and I certainly did look nobody -- would stay -- -- -- -- just -- -- sports authority let me -- aunt Sarah -- I'll let let that what you said before.
Yeah I like to get people talking and I am a provocative tore and I do like getting on Twitter and Riley -- people out because.
You know what after after all while some saying dialogue incidence and some saying conclusions.
Come of that kind of thing and that you know.
I think it's a good thing and a lot of people have also said that I'm letting the billionaires off easy.
The -- -- the billionaires off easy by a well yeah because they are responsible for all the problems on our planet.
Billionaires -- -- think what it -- -- -- you're too intelligent to say that let let me be honest with you.
You you are too Smart to be saying some of these things if you're serious that you -- to be taken seriously you wanna run for the presidency.
He billionaires are not the problem I never got a job in my whole life and -- started washing dishes at twelve from a poor person.
I never got -- never looked at rich people on set I ever write to your house your car.
And it seems that you know you're you play in this game you throwing out these broad sweeping generalizations.
I think if you do that just my humble opinion are gonna be taken seriously.
Well there is a serious class war going on in our country and I'm trying to underline it and bring it to you know.
C mainstream media could not who.
The wall but ignores that there is a war on poor people by Irish people in this country and it -- should be loved that and art class system as well as our caste system.
Should be analyzed and taken apart and really really -- that but the borrow the money did they present -- -- -- wild went up but that was a huge three distribution of -- would you say you're against the bottom than I night I don't hear any -- -- -- -- but the bottom 49% don't pay federal income tax.
While that's why we need feel like look at our income tax laws and get a fair tax and redo our system from the bottom opt.
All right -- for president thank you for being with us and.
