Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor and 2008 Republican presidential candidate, talked Tea Party, taxes and the best (and worst) day of his life in a lively interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan that airs at 9 ET Monday night.

Overall, the Tea Party is a “good” movement, Giuliani said, but it has also attracted “a couple of people that are a little crazy … ”

When he first launched his bid for the White House several years ago, he recalled that “there was a big anti-war movement in this country against the Iraq War, people hanging President Bush in effigy, people saying President Bush should be killed.”

“Well, those people weren’t the core of that movement,” he said.

“The core of that movement legitimately opposed the war in Iraq. I didn’t agree with them, but they had every right to do it. They were very emotional. They’re very angry. But they were respectable people who opposed it, with some extremists who made them look bad. The Tea Party, the same thing – respectable people. They have a legitimate political point. A couple of people that are a little crazy who take it to an extreme.”
