It seems as though America really has spoken and Piers Morgan is gone.
That’s because despite challenging Fox News competitor Megyn Kelly with the taunt, “bring it on!” it appears that the gunophobe Brit will be leaving his show in March due to low ratings. Here are some of the best and worst moments from his show, and his life, that got him canned:
1) He falsely said the Newtown killer was an NRA member
Despite the fact that Adam Lanza was not an NRA member, Piers ignorantly demanded NRA president Wayne LaPierre explain away the figment of his diseased imagination:
2) Piers tries to debate gun control on Twitter and get destroyed
Morgan got the nickname “musket” from his snarky conservative fans when he was obliterated in a now famous short debate on Twitter:
Good job, musket.
3) Remember that time he helped Trayvon’s friend explain why “cracker” isn’t racist?
Musket’s interview with Trayvon Martin’s girlfriend Jeantel was a world class performance of fawning admiration for someone who explained that the obviously racial epithet “cracker” isn’t racist at all!
PIERS MORGAN: Let’s talk about ‘creepy ass cracka.’ People have said that that is a phrase used by black people, cracka, to describe a white person. Is that true?
4) Piers the arbiter of Constitutional and Biblical truth
Not only did the immigrant set himself above our Constitution, but he also climbed the lofty heights and tried to dethrone God Himself, just because he didn’t like what he read in the Bible.
5) Saying the Republicans are less than rational than Syria and Iran
That’s the length and breadth of Piers’ foreign policy expertise – he thinks a political party that wants to not carry around a $17 trillion debt is less rational than a country that gassed its own citizens, and another that has threatened Israel with extinction while denying the holocaust!
6) Larry King says Spongebob would be better on CNN than Piers
Amazingly, the abrasive Brit was brought on to replace Larry King for CNN, who has a much less confrontational temperament. During an interview where King admitted CNN “has problems,” this was his advice for how to save the ratings:
“Put SpongeBob on CNN — 24 hours — until a big story breaks. Then we break into SpongeBob, and go to the hurricane, and then back to SpongeBob.”
The reason? Piers Morgan was narcissistically making every show about himself.
7) Competing with Chris Matthews’ gushing over Obama
If you thought Matthews’ leg tingling was bad, you’re just gonna love this video where Piers actually calls Obama, “the perfect human specimen.” No, really.
8) He told Obama to “start panicking” over his Obamacare numbers
Let’s hope Obamacare does as well as Piers Morgan did with his popularity.
That’s right – Americans grew so sick of musket they signed a petition to have him deported in droves. It currently has 109,000 signatures.
9) When Nancy Grace slapped him around on gun control
The last and one of the funniest lows was when Nancy Grace actually summed up many Americans’ attitude towards some British guy trying to take away our guns – this sounds familar!
Oh musket, I can’t say we’ll miss you, but we certainly enjoyed the cantankerous low-rated shenanigans you got yourself into. Thanks for the laughs!
