The White House, responding to a petition, is deporting CNN host Piers Morgan back to England.
A petition was posted on White House’s We the People forum asking former CNN host Piers Morgan to be deported back to England. The forum was created by gun-ownership supporters after Morgan’s support of increased gun control after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.
The Obama administration issued a response saying that Piers Morgan has the right to express his opinion, but he’s acting like “a little child” and is “inciting gun owners, so we are deporting him immediately.”
Obama was visibly upset with Morgan when he made the announcement that he is deporting him.
This man has offered to escort Morgan back to England:
White House press secretary Jay Carney reportedly said, “President Obama believes the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms. And Piers Morgan is not the right person to lead a debate on this issue. Morgan is debasing the argument for gun control and on top of that… he’s annoying as hell.”
Over 1,00,000 signed virtually the petition to deport Morgan back to his home of England.
Piers Morgan was a flop as a replacement for Larry King. Even Larry King took a swipe at Morgan reportedly saying, “He’s very different from me. I never gave opinions. Piers gives his opinions. The show is all about him. He’s basically just a British blowhard.”
In recent weeks, Morgan has had fierce gun control arguments with his guests, including Alex Jones, Matt Druge and Jesse Ventura. Ted Nugent has offered to take Morgan deer hunting in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. “I’ll give him a first-hand lesson in hunting. He’ll be a member of the NRA when I’m done with him,” Nugent reportedly said.
The only problem with deporting Morgan back to England: they don’t want him either. Afghanistan leader, Hamid Karzai, said that he is welcome in his country any time – and he won’t need a gun.
