Seriously, is there anything —  other than his First Amendment-protected right to disparage America’s traditions — that Piers Morgan appreciates about this country?

Well, maybe soon enough:

  • Frustrated Teacher

    So CNN hires a guy that got chased out of HIS country (arguable but they don’t want him back…), to come here and complain about everything in OUR country and act like he is so much smarter than everyone else….and they wonder why his ratings suck? Proud to say I have and never will watch his program. I hear enough of our ‘great leader’ and his gang talking down about the U.S. thank you!

    • Rulz

      They probably hired him to shake up things with his go get em style and English accent.

      But recent ratings show him losing to Rachel Maddow, and he is still way behind cable news timeslot leader Sean Hannity.

      • Brian Roastbeef

        He and Russell Brand sure have done a spectacular tag team job destroying the reputation of a British accent for intelligence and sophistication, that’s for certain.

      • ThorOdinson

        He’s losing the cable race to RuPaul of all people! The man’s a joke.

    • Canadian in USA

      I guess that’s why Larry King has started his show up again…mind you, it’s only on Hulu.

  • Brian Roastbeef

    Got to laugh at Piers Morgan pretending he understands sports. Nerd.

    • Richard Marroquin

      hey, how dare you disrespect nerds like me. I love sports, but just can’t play them and I do understand them as well. The word for Piers is Douchbag

      • Brian Roastbeef

        LOL fair enough, I actually did think of that being a video gamer myself, on a site hosted by a proud D&D gamer, on an Internet where nerds are taking back the word.

        But Piers is the all-out spaz of a nerd that never had a prayer of understanding sports, championships, or basic human interaction. There are even douchebags who make it that far… Piers is beyond that.

  • carla5731

    As if we needed anymore evidence that Piers Morgan is 100% British and oh so very lame, he decides to shoot his mouth off about the Super Bowl.

  • LyleLovett666

    Smegma wearing a tie.

  • Rulz

    Morgan has lost his edge in the 24-50 age cohort in ratings to Sean Hannity big time.

  • ozconservative

    This coming from a man whose country isn’t even the best at the sports they invent: Cricket (South Africa #1), soccer (Germany #1), rugby league (Australia #1) and rugby union (New Zealand #1).

  • TN05

    There is an international competition, the IFAF World Cup. Even WITH only allowing amateur Americans to compete against professional football players from other countries, we STILL annihilated Canada, and those guys actually PLAY FOOTBALL (Canadian football, but close enough). By virtue of the NFL being the world’s best football club in the world’s best football country, the Rabens are world champions. This isn’t a difficult concept

    • BlueGood

      HEY!!!!! As a Proud Canadian I resemble that remark!!!!

      Yes we do have the CFL but it is pretty lame…..LOL

      Now…Hockey just might occasionally be a different match up…..

      BTW…you do know Basketball was invented by a Canadian don’t you TN05???

      Mr. Naismith’s hometown is about a 40 minute drive form my ranch…..

      • TN05

        I don’t have anything against Canadians, trust me. As a football historian of sort you guys did a lot to contribute to football’s development and you were right on par with us until around the 50s or so, when the big money made people come to the US instead of the CFL. My point was that Canada is the only other country in the world where football is very popular (I believe it is second only to the NHL up where you are), and a team of amateur Americans still managed to blow out a team of semi-pro Canadians. The title of world championship is American, basically.

        I’ll yield on hockey, no way we could beat you there. With some 70% of NHL players being Canadian it really isn’t arguable. 😛 I’m familiar with basketball’s origins, so yes to that, and that is pretty cool you live that close.

        Speaking of CFL, why the crap couldn’t you guys find anyone better than Justin Bieber and Carly Rae Jepsen for the 100th Grey Cup? That seems a bit of an odd way to commemorate that bit achievement. 😛

  • Coltanaconda

    Hey bring ur team from britain and we will see who win….Oh, i forgot u dont have a team. U play wussy soccer. LOL

  • RadicalRebelWhoMeToo


  • Wing_attack_Plan_R

    i’m pretty sure Obama agrees with you Piers and will do something about it now that he knows someone, anyone is offended by it

  • Guest

    Well, I agree with him. Typical American arrogance. Yes, America is the “world” – give me a break!

    • TocksNedlog

      You are the best in the world at something until someone else comes along and beats you. It does not matter that they are not trying; you’re still better than them.

    • Penny Robinson Fan Club

      Not our fault if nobody else even entered.

  • Moonbeam

    Well, I agree with him. Typical American arrogance. Yes, America is the “world” – give me a break! The USA should try playing Rugy …. now protective clothing in that. Talk about wussy.

    • CatHerder

      What’s the rules for Rugy then?

    • TocksNedlog

      NOBODY is saying that “America is the world,” so you might want to retract your lie.

  • Linda Ann McBride

    I think his hate speech is beginning to draw us Americans together. Kind of like when you tell a child not to do something so they will. He may be the best weapon against Obama we’ve got. He even makes some liberals hate him.

  • tjp77

    He’s basically a professional troll at this point. I don’t even think he believes half the things he says anymore, it’s all just to stir up the hornets nest.

    Seriously, who in this country even knew who he was before he started saying outrageous and flagrantly incorrect things? Nobody. I was vaguely aware of him as the guy Jeremy Clarkson punched, but had no idea he was in the US now until he turned into the go-to person for absurdly smug gun control rants and general anti-American idiocy. So, mission accomplished I suppose.

  • brewerandpatriot

    Piers clings to his beloved f�tbol: a game that brings about more riots and death than a good month in Chicago and where a 0-0 final score is considered acceptable.

  • HalleysFifth

    Pardon me, Twitchy, but why do you persistently use that nauseating semi-nude photo of Piers Morgan. Every time it catches me off-guard, I want to wretch. Don’t do that to your loyal readers, please.

  • Bob Smooper

    I don’t understand why no one is actually responding to the comment he made and is simply just pointing out what a dickhead he is.

    He asks the question: how can they be world champions if only one country plays in the event? They are NATIONAL champions.

    You cannot be a world champion at something if you only play against people in your own country!

    • dmacleo

      american bowl?

      international series ?
      iirc nfl teams played overseas before, don’t remember the specific team makeups though.

    • carla5731

      1. This style of football is not found in many other countries at a professional level.

      2. The Canadian league is considered the next best but the caliber of the competition isn’t close to that found in the NFL.

      3. The NFL pulls in the most talented players from all over the world.

      4. Until another league springs up and beats the NFL champions, how can you say they’re not “World Champs”?

    • TocksNedlog

      The best team in a national sport is ALSO the best team in the world until and unless a team from another nation ACTUALLY PLAYS AND DEFEATS THEM.

    • Penny Robinson Fan Club

      My effin God. You just suck down the koolaid and never even bother reading responses, do you? Not our fault if nobody else even has the scrote to enter, is it?

    • Penny Robinson Fan Club

      Do you even read the remarks, or do you just barge in with your prearranged talking points? Whose fault is it if no-one else makes the grade, hmm? Did you see any signs along the way, “American teams only”, hmm? I think not. Enlighten us then — can you really call =anything= a world championship unless everyone in the world plays? There’s only a dozen or so nations play in the the Cricket “World Cup,” how dare they!! Hmmm?

      So how bout you and Ponce Morgan just go play for World Champion at Pole Position and leave real people alone.

  • David Miller

    does anyone really care what this Jackass thinks?

  • Elke E. Wilhelm

    Piers Morgan is a troll. He gets off on all the ire he raises. Don’t give him any attention – you’re only feeding him and making him stronger.

  • AlertUpUSA

    PM is like the sissy kid in your neighborhood who is only able to get attention by trying to get under your skin with inane comments. PM probably is one of those tippy-toe walkers whose heels never touch the floor!

  • Steve_J

    Maybe Musket will be lucky enough to party with Ray Lewis.

  • Randy C. Lindsey

    Limey twit.

  • Donna Jackson

    Piers reminds me of that kid in school who will accept negative attention over being ignored. I wish he would go home. He obviously doesn’t like the US.

  • ozconservative

    Piers Morgans grandpa was an officer in the British Army in WW1. Here he is educating those unsophisticated colonials how to use a bayonet.

  • aliwilcox

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the powers at CNN encourage him to make such antagonistic statements. Think of how much press he got over gun control. And CNN is desperate for press–the more controversial the better. I suggest we treat him like the irrelevant gnat he is. Ignore him.

    • Penny Robinson Fan Club

      Yeah, but this is just so absurdly petty. This is the kind of stuff we got charged up over in fifth grade and forgot about the week later. Oh, the “World Series,” too, maybe that was before there were even Canadian teams. Has Ponce Morgan cracked off about that too?

  • precursor

    Piers Morgan needs to get a life..and soon. I think he needs some mental therapy before he hurts himself or someone else.

  • Okie_pastor

    sadly there are many liberals who probably agree with him. They think We should all get on board with soccer. Liberals want us to move with the world. Conservatives want America to move this world. That’s why Im conservative!

  • James Walker

    Morgan is a douche but there is nothing wrong here. It’s been a long standing criticism from our English speaking cousins that Americans refer to our sports champions as “World Champions”. I tend to agree with the Brits and Australians whenever I see one bring up this subject.

    • TocksNedlog

      Instead of challenging our phrasing, let’s see them field a team!

    • Penny Robinson Fan Club

      Exactly. Quit the biotching and put a team together.

  • TocksNedlog

    Shorter Piers: “Look at meeeeeeeeee!!!”

  • $129448

    what a Douche

  • domremy03

    Never mind the petitions. The truth is, most Americans don’t take condescending Europeans like Piers seriously enough to get angry at.

  • Frank Smiles

    Piers Morgan needs to go the same direction as Soledad O’Brien if CNN wants to be topnotch. And by direction I mean simply “away”. Hacks like them are parrots, not newspeople.

  • rivers

    Why do people like Piers Morgan, Jim Carrey, Dave Foley, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, etc. come to this country that they love to denigrate?
    Greed. Fame and money, levels of success that they can’t achieve at home.

  • notenoughtime

    Piers is sinking further into his own self importance.

  • walterc

    The great thing about America Piers, is that unlike the former Soviet Union, China, Cuba et al, you’re free to leave any time you choose. I’d recommend you choose to leave soon before someone kicks your panty waist ass.

  • Maxx

    This guy needs a fleshlight like yesterday.

  • aliwilcox

    Oh for crying out loud–Piers and the vocabulary police are splitting hairs. Let’s call them the Champions of the Universe. There are so many things to really worry about.

  • orringtonmom (D)

    bitch, bitch, bitch… gawd, piers, take a freakin’ midol already.

  • Canadian in USA
  • Paula Noakes

    May I plead with Twitchy to NOT use that gosh-awful picture of Morgan half-naked anymore? Every time I come here, I throw up a little. Ick. Eye bleach, eye bleach!

  • June Clinkenbeard

    Do you suppose if we ignore it, it will go away? …sigh. Wishful thinking.

  • APW

    Earlier on this thread, I suggested that we stop giving Piers Morgan what he wants–he wants to stir the pot–any pot–to get press and recognition. He’s not a real liberal–he has no loyalty to ANY philosophy. He’s just an opportunistic hack. Follow this link for some background, and then let’s just kick him to the curb:

  • G.

    He’s an attention whore; stop the coverage and he will crawl back under his rock. The more coverage, the more outrageous the comments; that’s the only way a gargoyle ugly fugger like him can get attention. He’s a troll, pure and simple and you should not feed the trolls……

  • Carnival Barker

    This guy is such a dick. All he does is piss and moan about our country. It’s like going to you friends house and saying “God it really smells here. The decor is terrible, your wife is ugly, your kids are stupid and your dog is starting to piss me off. I’ll be downstairs. Bring me some food when it’s done”. Asshat.
