Ahmadinejad brings the crazy to Piers Morgan, tripped up by girls on skis!/Alli_Brennan/status/250414998696890369

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad tried to bring a zen-like calm to the set of CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight.” At the start of the interview, he put on a classic display of creepy, overdone calmness that could rival Hannibal Lecter. His blank, insane eyes bored into the souls of millions of riveted viewers as he reassured them that they had nothing to fear.

#Ahmadinejad: re: #Syria "Freedom is a fundamental right." What about your own people in #Iran? Don't they have that right? @CNN

On Syria, he painted himself as a peacemaker but took the Ron Paul line by declaring that he opposes violence in other countries.

"I am now hard at work… bring the two sides to a point of national agreement" #Ahmadinejad on crisis in #Syria

He also wouldn’t give a straight answer on who he thought was behind the 9/11/01 terrorist attacks but seems to think that three-quarters of Americans are “nebulous” as to who did it.

#Ahmadinejad: "70 of Americans are still nebulous about the events of 9/11." Where did he get that stat.?

"I would have been happier to see a transparent trial…& find out the root causes of all the events" #Ahmadinejad on killing of #BinLaden

Then there was the Israel question, which didn’t seem to get as straight of an answer as he gave the U.N.

"I believe what is our common responsibility..all of humanity, we must help to end and eradicate occupation" #Ahmadinejad #Palestine

Answer the damn question for crying out loud! What is wrong with this man? #Ahmadinejad #Crazy

Just 15min into the @piersmorgan interview w/ Iranian President #Ahmadinejad & my Persian parents are already cursing in Farsi at the TV!

The zen of Ahmadinejad did break on the subject of the Holocaust, where Morgan found himself accused of imposing his own ideas.

well done @PiersMorgan, has #Ahmadinejad on ropes on the Holocaust.

He "passes no judgement" about historical events. Hitler is delighted to find him so forgiving. Vile #Ahmadinejad #PiersMorgan

"Let me finish".. "Don't be in such a hurry" – #Ahdmadinejad to @piersmorgan. Surely Piers had a chill go up his spine there.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad might be the world's most obnoxious conspiracy theorist.

All of that seemed to lead up to the big issue, the crescendo, the topic that finally pushed the dictator over the limit. Women on skis!

Ahmadinejad says "Who told you that was banned?" He will not confirm that it's legal for a single woman to go skiing.

— Adam Henry (@viewofadam) September 25, 2012

.@piersmorgan asks Ahmadinejad why Iranian single women are banned from going skiing alone. Still waiting for his answer…

"The problems of humanity run much deeper than whether or not a single woman goes skiing." -Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, President of A Country

That’s right — the stunned silence from Ahmadinejad wasn’t about the Holocaust, homosexuality, or Israel. Girls on skis, however, were too much for him.  Ahmadinejad claimed he was hearing of the ban for the first time, but wouldn’t indicate whether he would allow it. He was so uncomfortable that he tried to shift the conversation back to homosexuality, which suddenly seemed like a safer subject.

Ahmadinejad just called homosexuality an ugly behavior. Guess he's trying to impress Paris HIlton.

— GregGutfeld (@greggutfeld) September 25, 2012

Finally, Piers mercifully ends the slow motion train wreck with the simple question he says he asks everybody. So, how many times has Ahmadinejad been in love?

Ahmadinejad: "I love the whole of humanity". Great to know.

Unless of course those people are Jewish, gay, American, Christian, or want to go skiing.
