Ted Turner: I'm 'Almost To The Edge Of Poverty' (VIDEO)

Ted Turner said he has given so much of his money away that he is "almost to the edge of poverty."

Speaking on Wednesday's "Morning Joe," Turner said he has, at most, a few million dollars left (not exactly everyone's definition of poverty, but a far cry from his purported billionaire status.)

The media mogul, well known for his philanthropy (most notably his $1 billion pledge to the United Nations), said he "loved" giving money away "while [he] could do it."

Turner told the "Morning Joe" team that he just wants enough money to cover his funeral expenses when he dies, prompting a huge burst of laughter from Joe Scarborough.
