Watch Out Reporters! Montel Williams Is Coming For You

Ex-talk show host and military veteran Montel Williams is so busy these days, what with his juicers, complaining about Daily Caller stories and headlines and pushing the #vasurge.

But why on earth is my man Montel working so hard in the middle of the night?

Over the weekend he posted a photo to Facebook on Sunday at 3:21 a.m.

At that hour, it must be vitally important, right?

Uniting people is, of course, important at any hour. This was a Elie Weisel quote (as pictured below).

Montel makes a habit of posting things in the middle night. This morning at 2:45 a.m. it was the weekend’s fabulous super moon.

And finally, there’s this: Watch out reporters who’ve ever covered Montel’s medicinal marijuana arrests. He’s coming for you. Or rather, his flack, Jonathan Franks, is coming for you, which is actually a funnier prospect.

Franks is like a son to Montel, he says, along with calling him “annoyingly smart” which is maybe the funniest phrase of the week considering our email and phone interactions. I mean what a better way of exuding Elie Wiesel’s brilliant advice than pushing your flack to track reporters down like animals and then shame them into covering your story? Since when do reporters deserve this sh-t from Montel Williams? Reporters haven’t steered clear of the VA issue.

But maybe Montel, who was mentioned in a recent White House presser by a reporter, just likes it best when he’s the guest.
