Piers Morgan now taking 21 hours to deliver witty rejoinders in gun control debate

Just to clarify, is Piers Morgan getting slower, or are his replies just that much more well thought-out? “Musket” Morgan took his share of ridicule in early December, when he took a leisurely 18 hours to respond to “gun-toting heroine” Carol Roth. You just can’t rush that sort of brilliance.

Tonight, nearly 24 hours after suffering a brutal on-air smack down from “Bullies” author Ben Shapiro, Morgan finally crafted the perfect comeback to Shapiro’s point about guns being a defense against tyranny. We’re guessing Morgan didn’t spend all that time reading the “little book” Shapiro handed him.

Hah! Hey Piers, the Jerk Store called … President Obama‘s wondering where you are.

No do-overs. Morgan had his chance to question Shapiro last night, in person, on the air.

OK, we’ll give Morgan a do-over, at least on Twitter. So, in his new scenario, Shapiro alone will be defending himself against the entire U.S. Marine Corps.

Morgan’s Twitter feed has lit up over the last 24 hours, and his TV ratings this week haven’t been that bad, either. Perhaps a big “thank you” to Shapiro is in order.

  • Rob Stevely

    I cant wait until tomorrow night to see what Morgan has to say to these people giving him a smackdown.

    • lainer51

    When asked to comment about Morgan’s debate with Shapiro, the fishes in the barrel replied, “Even we aren’t THAT easy to hit!”

    Wow, what a scoop, he took 21 hours to reply to a tweet. Guess he doesn’t work for Twitchy where people have nothing to do.

    • Jarhead83

      Oh, he works real hard alright…at being an ass.

      • sleeper48

        And, I’ll admit he does a right fine job of it, too.

      • disqus_LASIg6epmj

        Twitchy is about Twitter so it is their job to monitor Twitter happenings.

    • waltzingmtilda

      And here we go again…a person who comes to this site to delibarately disrupt/disagree accuses other people of having “nothing to do”…

      • $30158943

        Its so unseemly that someone should disagree, goodness knows Twitchy is all about being supportive and agreeable. Sorry to ruin your day.

        • lainer51

          you, my ghoul-friend, could NEVER ruin my day…

        • waltzingmtilda

          Apology accepted.

          • $30158943

            you don’t understand sarcasm do you?

          • waltzingmtilda

            Apparently I understand sarcasm a lot better than you understand smart-assery…

          • WisconsinPatriot

            Open mockery is something the left CANNOT stand. Only bad part is they don’t get the jokes…….as they are the subject. Dumb it down,you are being mocked Mitch!

        • Michael Rice

          You missed the point, badly.

    • vino veritas

      Well, you certainly are slow on the uptake there mitchy!

    • Michael Rice

      Yes, when he takes 21 hours to rely it does make a for a slow day…

  • Jarhead83

    “…against all enemies, foreign and domestic…”

    That kinda leaves you out of the equation there, Musket.

  • grais

    He’s so silly when his panties are twisted into his crack.
    Piers, take off the estrogen patch already.

    • WisconsinPatriot

      Thats a THONG…….All the “smart people” wear them!

    ..Shows you how piers thinks and how many libs see things …Can’t we deport them all to England where they can have there utopia and leave ours alone

      “The parole board, however, has continually refused him
      early release – saying he has shown no remorse and would continue to
      pose a danger to any other burglars.”

      I’m so glad the founders gave these clowns the boot in 1776.

  • Lady 12

    Does he actually think the whole Marine Corps is going to fight against the Constitution? Good grief, he’s an idiot.

    Hey Piers, I would want an AR-15. At least I might stand a chance of preserving and protecting my life, liberty, and property. I honestly don’t expect to be fighting the Marines (I would expect them to be fighting beside me against tyranny). But let’s assume the POTUS does create a “Civilian National Security Force just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded as the US Military,” as he promised on the campaign trail, what would stop them from attacking Americans who disagreed with the government or him?

    Texans did not expect a fight with Mexico until Santa Ana became a dictator and attempted to crush those that disagreed with him. The Texas Declaration of Independence spells it out clearly that the Mexican government “…has demanded us to deliver up our arms, which are essential to our defence, the rightful property of freemen, and formidable only to tyrannical governments.”

    I would love for our side to do a better job explaining the historical context of the 2nd Amendment. Because of inadequate knowledge in the area of history, far too many citizens don’t understand what is at stake when free people are disarmed. Its not about “the children” or whether “Buddy needs a certain type of gun.” Its about protecting liberty from those who think themselves powerful enough to deny it. When elected leaders float trial balloons of using Executive Orders to undermine the 2nd Amendment, I get concerned, as all Americans should.

    55 Million gun owners – about 200K Marines – I like our chances. Now if that sounds absurd re-read Morgans tweet.

  • mickeyco

    Twitchy, please have mercy and get rid of that picture of Morgan. It brings all kinds of terrible images to mind. My eyes, my eyes!

  • MrApple

    Piers Morgan = ass hat

  • lainer51

    speaking of people that have “nothing to do”…. LMAO!!!

  • Ronald

    Piers really needs to prepare better if he wants to continue to have this debate. It’s embarrassing to see a professional journalist so lacking.

    • RightThinking1

      Nearly oxymoronic, “professional journalist”. It implies unbiased objectivity, very little of that around, and certainly none at Piers’ place..

      • mickeyco

        With Piers, we can just leave off the oxy- and use the moronic.

  • http://twitter.com/subiedriver78 Adam

    He’s laughing all the way to the ratings boards. Agenda or not, he’s loving the ratings these debates are getting, even if he is getting his ass kicked in them. I refuse to contribute to his ratings and will only watch the recaps on youtube afterwards.

    • Steve_J

      1-10-13, the only show Musket beat was Anderson Cooper. He’s even getting his butt kicked by “Slow” Eddie Schultz, Maddow, O’Donnell and even Sharpton.

      • WisconsinPatriot

        “Special Ed” is beating Piers?????? I put this guy right up there with Jerry Springer, am I wrong?

        • Steve_J

    Just to clarify Piers Morgan: In your premise, “The entire US Marine Corps” is attacking Ben Shapiro, a private citizen, and you think the problem in that scenario is that Ben would want an AR-15 to defend himself??? Are you making the case that he should want bigger firepower, or do you NOT see the problem with a government directing the military against it’s citizens?

  • Gallatin

    Piers Morgan
    Just to clarify @benshapiro – you want an AR-15 to defend yourself against the entire US Marine Corps when they attack you? #Tyranny

    Yes, and he will have help. This question has been answered several times now and the answer has been the same each and every time, yet you keep asking it. You must be one stupid man.

  • Gallatin

    General Thomas Gage

    Just to clarify @JohnHancock- you want those muskets to defend yourself against the entire British military when they attack you? #Tyranny

    This trash doesn’t even know EURO history FFS.

    Hello, Truman Doctrine and Postwar GreeK Government Army backed by the British (and USA) due to the vacuum left by the previous German-Italian occupation. The first time for British and American involvement in the internal politics of a foreign country.Therein causing the Greek Civil War.

    He never leaned about the Dekemvriana battle 1944 in which Greek Government soldiers controlled by the BRITISH GENERAL SCOBIE with Papandreou, MASS MURDERED GreeK peaceful demonstrators? (stemming from an order to DISARM “guerrilla” forces. SNAP)

    Cut to 1969 through 1974 a decade of lost democracy because of the inability of the unarmed Greeks to resist the coup (thanks, CIA). My ex still has the scar tissue on his scalp from the UNARMED student protests and deaths at the Polytechnion. Ask any Greek, the tanks driving down their streets were occupied by junta soldiers joined by others speaking perfect ENGLISH.

    And THIS is the reason Greece is in the situation it is today. 1)Anti-American sentiment drove the population left, and 2) they had no business joining the Common Market.

    Not only is Morgan a disingenuous douche but he’s stupid, too. And apparently uneducated. Well, that’s no surprise coming from government schools over there.

    Irony. Brits conquered and slaughtered Greeks, the founders of democracy because they overlooked the God given right to bear arms to defend themselves in THEIR constitution.

  • GTFOBigGovt

    HAHAHA apparently Dr. Oz dx Musket with high blood pressure on TV. Shocked face.

  • R. Scott Stewart

    Uh, Morgan: disarming a populace is an act of war. Last two times you Brits tried that we sent you packing, remember?

  • Rick Weesner

    How about Tony Martin of Emneth, Norfolk , England? He’s in prison for the rest of his life because he defended himself against people who broke into his home. His government put him in prison for protecting himself. If that’s not tyranny, what is?

  • Mapache

    First, I do not think the USMC would do such a thing and second, I would be not alone if they did. Piers, please go back to April 19, 1775 and ask your typical American colonist if they would be willing to stand against the mighty British Army with a musket….there is your answer.

  • ozconservative

    Feel free to correct me, but aren’t the Marines sworn to defend the constitution against all enemies foreign AND domestic??? If so, Piers Morgans attacks on the second amendment would make him an enemy of the constitution woudl it not???

  • Canadian in USA

    He’s still working on it. I’m thinking he’s getting his witty comebacks from George Costanza.
