Who Called Larry King ‘A chattering pirate skeleton on loan from Disney Land’?

Last night, Comedy Central taped its upcoming roast of Donald Trump, and former CNN 9 PM host Larry King was one of the roasters. As with any roast, he not only cracked a few jokes himself (including one about Anderson Cooper), but was the subject of quite the barrage, including:

“Please welcome a chattering pirate skeleton on loan from Disney Land, Larry King”- Roastmaster and “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane

And

“You are so boring, that when you were getting your colonoscopy even your doctor switched to Fox”- Comedian Anthony Jeselnik

TVNewser spotted former CNN/U.S. chief Jon Klein laughing at quite a few of the zingers.
