    I was certain that it was genetically impossible for Larry King to pass away. Rest In Peace, Larry.

      Larry King charged and arrested in 1971 with grand larceny for taking $5,000 from financier Louis Wolfson and using it to pay back taxes rather than giving it to the intended recipient.

  10. “I never learned anything while I was talking.”. Those are the words of person with intelligence.

      Technically flawed statement. While talking to much the light should come on that you’re talking to much.

    • @Muhammad Steinberg oh that’s deep. 🙄

      classic statement larry was an icon

    • @The standard narrative has holes in it Right, as you point out and as most Americans agree, even a potato was a huge step up from Trump.

      To your point, Trump never reached or exceeded a 50% approval rating, leaving office with a 29% approval rating. Biden currently has a 63% approval rating. He’s already a huge step ahead of Trump.

    I will have to remember, “I never learned anything when I was talking.”

  12. Never a big fan of his talk show, I felt it was a little ‘too’ unprepared most of the time. But, I really admired his work outside the studio. His charity work to provide affordable health care to lower income family and people especially. For many years, he was one of the vocal supporters for this cause. What a great man.

    The time I found him incredibly funny was when he voiced the barmaid on Shrek 2. I didn’t know he was a part of the cast and in theater, I was like ‘Is that who I think it is…???’ I laughed so hard, in a dark theater room full of people.

  13. It had to happen eventually. That fact of life doesn’t make it any less sad. What a legend.

  14. No one on earth could replace him. But his time has come like so many other Americans with covid.he was 87 years old. Rest in peace sir.

  15. He was a great interviewer! My wife gave him the ultimate compliment – she didn’t know if he was a Democrat or a Republican!

      @Conor McTapOut hey moron, Larry had his own talk show on CNN for 25 years !! It was the best !!

    • Conor McTapOut | January 23, 2021 at 2:28 PM | Reply

      @Sugar Xyler – foot model hey MORON I know that, I’m saying modern day CNN wouldn’t allow anyone like Larry king to run a Segment on their show because they’re full blown leftists
      Maybe learn to read MORON 😂

    • I felt the same way. And would have liked him regardless! ☺ Exceptional human.

    • Bingo! that’s why I watched regularly, liked his program, a break from this 24/7 political nonsense.

    • He was a softball interviewer, in my opinion. He would rarely challenge anybody, that I recall. It is a lot more work to be sufficiently well-informed to do that, and it would probably be bad for business.

    He’s died as a result to COVID-19 I’m sure! Sad 😷

    • Chalk up another needless death to ignorance/arrogance.
      Unfortunately, Larry King attended the December 2020 Trumpery donald super spreader Xmas youth rally. Anyone could have seen this coming.

    He broght GROWN MEN TO TEARS in his interview.. He was a good radio/tv HOST. He died of complication from COVID!

  18. “now Larry, let me finish Larry”
