Bless his heart: Piers Morgan shares his golf dream, gets a history lesson in return; Update: Piers responds

As Twitchy reported, Golf Channel majorly whiffed on its attempt to commemorate the 50th anniversary of MLK Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. Not to be outdone, Piers Morgan went ahead and upped the stupid:

Oh, Musket. Swing and a miss!

This is what happens when you get your head stuck in the sand trap.


Nope. Definitely not a golf person. Just a mind-blowingly doltish person.


Keep dreaming, Piers.






Twitchy coverage of Piers Morgan

  • Cy

    Wow, something he actually knows LESS about than firearms.

    • CatHerder

      Who knew there was such a thing?

    • alanstorm

      The calipers you need to measure such ignorance are so small that you need other calipers to handle them.

      • IceColdTroll

        Ah, well done.

      • The Penguin #PublishThatSh*t

        Perhaps “micrometers”?

      • Ben Bollman

        I bet his wife has measurement tools that small 😉

        • Clete Torres

          I’ll bet he does too.

    • John Smith

      You should tweet this. Easily the best smack down he got.

  • WhoMeToo

    .@piersmorgan <== #YouIgnorantSlut

  • Steve_J

    Musket should be embarrassed to be that dense.

  • CombatDiver

    Tiger was also the first Thai to win the Masters. People tend to forget or just flat out ignore the fact that Tiger is of mixed heritage.

    • therealguyfaux

      If he kills a Latino in self-defense, does that make him a “Black-Asian,” or an “Asian-Black”?

      Or, if he kills a foreign student or an eighty-eight-year-old man, will they fail to note that he’s at all Black ?

    • The Penguin #PublishThatSh*t

      But his “white” side showed when he cheated on his wife.

      • Renny

        He doesn’t have a ‘white side’. What?

        • The Penguin #PublishThatSh*t

          perhaps too much of a reach…sarc attempt.

          • Clete Torres

            Burnt Umber?

          • The Penguin #PublishThatSh*t

            I’ll go with that.

    • TomJB

      I believe his term was “comblinasian”

      Even better comeback by musket boy. Too much nuance for us knuckledraggers!

  • arttie

    Now Piers will have a bad case of the vapors.

    • Clete Torres

      His brain has been on vapor lock for years.

    • Jay Stevens

      No, no, no. He is British. It is “vapours”.

      • arttie

        Thanks, my bad.

  • JeffWRidge

    The story of Piers “Musket” Morgan; there’s always room for another foot in his mouth.

  • Right Wired

    Please tell me he’s not getting paid for being on MSNBC. Please tel me he’s a volunteer or charity case or something. Please tell me he’s not making 10x my salary to say things like this.

    • Clete Torres


  • Brian Roastbeef

    Be fair. Tiger Woods is a notoriously arrogant, foul-mouthed crybaby. Musket must have known that and assumed he was a fellow CNN host, and therefore lily-white.

  • therealguyfaux

    I have a dream that Pughe will be deported back to England to face charges for perjuring himself before an Inquiry looking into whether he engaged in deliberately falsifying photos accompanying stories in the newspaper he edited, and whether he was engaged in illegally snooping on people for salacious headlines.

  • Lord Foggybottom

    While everybody was busy watching the Mexican border, this moron slipped in…

  • Maxx

    Stay tuned next week when the idiot laments the appalling lack of blacks in the NBA.

  • The Masked Avatar

    Piers Morgan is going to freak when he learns that Condoleezza Rice is a member at Augusta.

  • Steve Drane

    Dear God, I’ve never seen so many stupid people making a fool out of themselves at the same time! Clearly he meant MLK’s golf dream in 1963 would have been to see a black man win the Masters. Only a complete idiot would misunderstand.

    • jeanjustjean

      Clear as mud. But nice cover.

    • tops116

      “Dear God, I’ve never seen so many stupid people making a fool out of themselves at the same time!”

      Missed all the Drane family reunions, did ya?

      “Clearly he meant MLK’s golf dream in 1963 would have been to see a black man win the Masters.”

      Really? “A black man will win Masters at Augusta.” Odd, I see nothing about MLK or 1963. The only clear thing is that Piers doesn’t know who Tiger Woods is.

      “Only a complete idiot would misunderstand.”

      Only a thin-skinned whiner would flip out like you did just because people are making fun of a know-nothing know-it-all like Piers Morgan.

      • Clete Torres

        …and that about covers it.

    • grais

      I’m sure he’ll thank you for that attempt, regardless of its failure.

      He wasn’t asked to tweet Dr. King’s golf dream in 1963. Only a complete idiot would have thought he was.

    • sentry_99

      English must not be your first language. Golf Channel asked people to “tweet your ‘golf’ dream….”. YOUR being the key word there genius. Look it up and don’t get confused with you’re and yore.

    • alanstorm

      “Dear God, I’ve never seen so many stupid people making a fool out of themselves at the same time!”

      Happens every 4 years – it’s called the Democratic National Convention.

    • Paladin

      Clearly! May I suggest a /sarc at the end of your post? It seems a little subtle.

    • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    • Catchance

      @GolfChannel: Tweet your ‘golf’ dream on 50th anniv of MLK speech.

      Clearly it’s *YOUR* golf dream, not MLK’s.
      But… nice try.

      • The Penguin #PublishThatSh*t

        ha ha…”dork”.

    • JR48

      MLK had a golf dream?

      Talk about taking Morgan’s boneheaded statement and twisting it like Gumby.

    • Jay Stevens

      Well, you know us. We have a problem with “nuance”.

      We tend to call a “spade” a “spade”, not a … … “manual implement for excavation”. What? You thought I was going to say … , never mind. I know. I am a RAACIST anyway just for thinking about it.

  • CO2 Producer

    Oh, I get it. It’s an RT of a 20-year-old tweet. Haha, bloody good one, ol’ chap!

  • R.C.

    Oh come on! Everyone knows Woods is Yellow-Black, or Blasian maybe, but not black…./


    He’s still grieving over the death of his best friend Patrice O’neal.

    He still can’t believe she’s gone

    • Biff Wellington

      I thought it was Chelsea Manning….

  • radicallyalyssa

    Maybe Tiger’s not black enough..?

  • tops116

    Piers’ guide to ethnicity: Tiger Woods isn’t black, George Zimmerman is white and Elizabeth Warren is Native American.

    • TheUmpire

      That is comedy GOLD, my friend. Well done!

  • grais

    His tweets ARE hard to understand. I think he’s Now trying to say he had that dream 50 years ago.
    Or something.

  • JBDestiny

    Maybe Musket was referring, obliquely, to our Golfer in Chief, who is, according to lefty logic, “blacker” than Tiger?

    • liberalssuck

      Wait, Wait according to the defective left, isn’t he white black? The clown in the oval office?

    • $18912735

      Obama really, really, reeeeaaaallly detests his white half.

  • John Ansell

    Fore ward.

  • Jeremy

    What a moron

  • Markward

    Yes, we don’t understand how one man can continue to be this stupid!

  • sandyaz

    I don’t begin to understand or like golf but even I know Tiger Woods.

  • Richard Jefferies

    My dad used to day, ‘it’ll go easier for you if you own up to your mistakes.” I guess Piers’ dad didn’t tell him that. Instead he continues to dogmatically deny it, and like a petulant child, throws some insults at the people who pointed it out.

  • Michael Rice

    Poor buffoons? Isn’t that an elitist insult?
    WHy would he want a man to win the Masters based on his race and not his ability?

  • Zefal

    Don’t know if he was being facetious or not. Normally I wouldn’t have any doubt that someone was playing this clueless but piers is a special case.

  • BlahBlah



    My golf dream is that Piers returns to his native land for a round at Royal Lytham and St. Annes. And then stays there. Forever.

  • Magnifico

    I want to see Vick win The World Series

  • Brother bob

    Tiger isn’t black..he’s asianblack just like Zimmerman is whitehispanic.
