In spite of his shady past, which links him to phone tapping, photo doctoring and dodgy share dealing, Piers Morgan managed to make a name for himself across the Atlantic when he left old Blighty to the joyous cheers of many Brits.
Piers Morgan, former ousted editor of British newspaper the Mirror and now defunct News of the World hack, went on to make a glittering career in the U.S. as Donald Trump's apprentice. It has taken a surprisingly long time for the American public to see through Morgan and demand his deportation.
Amazingly Morgan, who once demonstrated his love of powerful weapons by saying "it would be doing the British public a favour if Jeremy Clarkson was taken out by machine gun," has become unpopular by contradicting his former advocacy of guns for wiping out his own personal enemies.
As John Ward wrote in the UK Slog: "It occurred to me last night that there are millions of Americans who don’t know anything like as much about Romping Arse Piers Morgan as we unlucky souls over here do."
Variously described by the great British public as "a nasty little flea," "a vile little man," "a smug git," and "a slimy chancer," Morgan is generally reviled in his home country which was only to happy to see the back of him.
Popular English characters Ian Hislop and Jeremy Clarkson were both embroiled in public feuds with Morgan, demonstrating Morgan's pettiness. As Front Page Mag points out, when Clarkson "punched Piers multiple times in 2004 our nation cried out in joy. Never has a knuckle sandwich been so well deserved and appropriate a reaction."
In the clip below the popular, esteemed editor of the satirical magazine Private Eye expresses his disdain for Piers Moron, explaining why shaking a dead cod is preferable to shaking moron's hand.
The petition to deport Morgan from the U.S. has resulted in a counter petition from Brits who don't want him back, saying: "We apologize to the people of America for you having to endure his rampant superiority complex in your national media. We thought we had seen the last of him when he was finally fired from The Mirror newspaper but then he somehow wormed his way onto CNN."
They suggest perhaps Australia may take him in though the Slog has a far better suggestion for "the Man with no Brain and a Shady Past:" North Korea.
