Quick, someone buy Piers Morgan a 10-pack of Kleenex boxes. And a Valium. Echoing hysterical Democrat Rep. Steve Israel and others, Morgan had a snit fit tonight over the government shutdown’s closure of the Statue of Liberty.

The monument was closed for nearly a year after Hurricane Sandy. Somehow, the republic survived.

No matter. The Brit bozo and CNN took to the airwaves to show a livecam video of Lady Liberty closed to the public…at midnight!

Um, Musket Morgan, nobody’s allowed to visit the Statue of Liberty at midnight. Ever.

Exit, stage left.

    Relax Morgan. The best representation of liberty doesn’t come from chiseled cement. It comes from the steel flowing through the veins of patriots like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee.

    America will survive a few days of national park closings. However, whether YOU’LL survive Megyn Kelly is another issue altogether.

      Beautiful!

      FYI: Statue of Liberty is made of copper and iron.

  • Edd Flammer

    In 2 month he will be demanding that it get shutdown because it does’t comply with the ADA

  • MumsTheWord

    But President Obama can shut down the White House tours and that’s a-ok with Piers?

  • killdozerd11R

    Well maybe we can do some work on her in this time period…Bite Me morgan

    • AmericanDuckie

      YAY!

    • Moue La Moue

      That is one bada$$ Lady of Liberty I’d follow anywhere! Huzzah!

    • JMW

      Needs neon lights at base….. “From my cold dead hands you priggish Brit.”

  • Bruce

    Piers, just wait until YOU shut down due to your ever dwindling audience defecting to “The Kelly File.”

  • TJ

    Was it not closed for years after 9/11.

  • AmericanDuckie

    Well wow. Our Constitution is our representation of Freedom and Liberty, yet the dems have been trampling it for years. Get a grip Morgan. It’s not the statue, it’s the symbol. I see more freedom with the shut down than I EVER will with socialized ‘health care’ you putz.

  • Rusty Shackleford

    Ironic, the guy and party telling me how many rounds of ammunition in a mag I can have is crying about the statue of liberty and invoking “freedom”.

  • kawaie

    Ive come to the stance I will never make twitchy lol. the PEOPLES house has been closed for months except to celebs and I don’t hear him bitch about that

    Seriously, no more booze for Piers Morgan.. he loves this country sooo much, he gets all soppy about it..even more soppy than we real American patriots do. A real patriot like Harry Reid never melts down like Piers Morgan. Teflon Harry doesnt melt down, nothing sticks to him ever, Harry never will negotiate nor compromise nor show weakness, Harry has never cried like Boehner does, Harry has never made a mistake in his life, and Harry did not cause the government shutdown. The way they figure it, the Tea Party and Republicans shut down the government ’cause they refused to compromise and accept the law of the land. Do you ever wonder, how do you know you are a real American patriot?.. Your a real American patriot when Harry Reid is calling you an anarchist and terrorist and especially you are if the IRS has been holding up your 501c4 for 5 years, in which case you might just fully qualify for free automatic weapons and ammo – provided you verify to IRS you are a “good” terrorist in Syria fighting for Obama against that sneaky Assaud, which verification is easy to do just by opening your cell phone and saying “boy, isnt it hot here in Syria right now” (fire a couple of shots in the air while saying this) and the NSA who is already listening to your conversations will relay you are in a free weapons receiving center, so within 5 or 6 seconds the IRS can approve your free weapons distribution and hey, while you have NSA on the line.. might as well tell them to sign up for the Affordable Care Act bronze plan..the IRS can go ahead and suck the payment straight out of your bank account… Now that is Freedom to get soppy about, now I am tearing up like Piers Morgan did. Thank you Harry Reid, the Un-negotiator, terroristogator, anarchistogator, and biggest liarator alligator in the Senate pond of non-un-negotiators..dont even say the word compromise.. that word has been lifted from the vocabulary by Harry “the unbendable” Reed. Yep…doobada-doobada-doobadeee that’s all folks.

      LOL — nice — Thanks, I needed that!

    • Cyborg3K

      Maybe no more coffee for you either, OK? Though I agree w/ all of it.

  • TocksNedlog

    And yet, despite the government shutdown, more people are viewing the Statue than are watching Morgan’s show.

  • Roto ✓Intentionally Left Blank

    Bill Kristol joked on Fox at 6 pm about CNN putting cameras at the Statue of Liberty. Liberals are so predictable….

  • beebop1952

    I hope the guy whose job it is to type the speeches into TOTUS is out for a while. Pass the popcorn. This will be fun as the thinnest skinned man in America throws a fit!

  • bbroome62

    At least closing the national parks will give nature a rest.

  • QueenB ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Don’t suppose Piers gives a crap about the WH being closed so the sequester could be as painful as possible while the current occupant goes on multimillion dollar vacations.

  • Still Determined

    Yeah no big deal for people who made plans and arranged trips and paid good money to travel to National Parks, Monuments. Peons can suffer so our politicians can booze it up and fail to do their job in DC!
    Just the little people suffering.

    • stuckinIL4now

      It won’t matter cuz when they have to start paying their Obummercare premiums and deductibles and co-pays and other percentages for their healthcare, they’ll be lucky to be able to pay the rent so won’t be able to afford the trip to national parks or monuments anyway.

    • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

      Yeah, like the $20 an hour paper shuffler… Jawamax 8<{D}

    • tops116 ✓Quipper

      “Just the little people suffering.”

      And yet, Jabber Jaw there doesn’t have a problem with “the little people” having to pay grossly expensive healthcare prices while Democrats exempted themselves from it all. Go figure.

      • Still Determined

        First go figure how in the heck you could say such a totally WRONG and INCORRECT statement : “Democrats exempted themselves from [Obamacare]” – HELLO?????

        • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil ✓Mate

          The President is a Democrat. HE exempted them.

        • Jeff Coil

          Check your facts. Congress and their families/staff are exempt from Obamacare.

    • Jeff Coil

      There is absolutely no reason to shut down the national parks despite the government shutdown. Congress is still getting paid, after all. The democrats just want to hurt as many Americans as they can so they can blame the Republicans.

  • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

    That Statue of Liberty pic is very unsettling to us Dr. Who fans.

    /Don’t look away. Don’t even blink.

    • Grandma HeadInjury

      Thank you! The DW ref is what actually brought me here. Thank God we didn’t have to see the pinched-scrotum-chin pic of Musket….

    • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

      Unsettling to me too….And I was in New York City when the Statue re-opened after the renovations in the eighties (Actually, I was in the Bronx w/my Grandmother for a 4th of July Birthday Party for one of her friends… FIREWORKS WAR ON ALLERTON AVENUE! XD) Jawamax 8<{D}

  • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

    Is that actually from the ep, or is that unrelated? Here’s a shot from the show.

  • bluewaternavy

    Statue of Liberty not fully opened even before shutdown due to Sandy Damage. Right before Sandy hit, park staff had to stop preparations for so that DOI Sec’y Salazar could get his press time at Statue reopening following renovations.
    Staff at statue had asked that Salazar delay visit until after storm-he refused. Liberty/Bedloe’s took severe damage and Ellis Island’s infrastructure was completely destroyed. Ellis will take years to be repaired.

  • stuckinIL4now

    Geez, what did Piers do when the statue was closed from 1984-1986 for its big renovation? Oh and I just heard that it’s been closed for 125 of the past 144 months. Isn’t it amazing what the slimestreamers will pick on to push their disgusting leftist agenda. They really do think we ALL are as stupid as the lowinfObamabotzombies.

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil ✓Mate

      Yeah, but have you seen the Statue this morning?

        Frickin’ PERFECT! Is that Piers Morgan or Harry Reid?

  • 13strigoi

    He’s upset because that was a lovely gift from the Brits…oh wait.

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    If anybody remembers, the Statue of Liberty was closed down for renovations under Reagan (Libs:OH, HORROR OF HORRORS!), but did our Republic “go down in flames?” I believe the Democrats (who were in charge of BOTH HOUSES of Congress) were ALL FOR IT! Same with the Renovations after Sandy… Now they BLAME REPUBLICANS/CONSERVATIVES for THEIR Unwillingness to Negotiate? All of those DimOCrooks need to be thrown into a Nightmarish Lunatic Asylum, starting with KING FINK OBAMA Himself! Jawamax 8<{D}

  • Kyle Bradelle

    The White House has been closed to public tours since…. did Priss cry about that?

  • bungopony

    Wasn’t it also shut down for renos during Reagan’s tenure?

    • Ravyn

      Yes it was

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil ✓Mate

      I took a Navy ship into a Hoboken, NJ shipyard in late 1983. The Statue looked as you see her now. When we left in summer of 84, there was scaffolding being put around the outside. The iron framework was being rehabbed and the copper plating being reattached.

      I went back up to see the reopening in 1986, but the Jersey Turnpike was basically shut down in that area due to people pulling over to watch the fireworks.

      • bungopony

        Thanks.You,too,Ravyn.

  • tops116 ✓Quipper

    Where was Piers outrage when the money for the White House tours got funneled into Obama’s Africa trip? 😉

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil ✓Mate

      He was blaming AR 15 shotguns.

    Damn Piers Morgan, its not like they are gonna tear down the Statue of Liberty and sell it for scrap

    I don’t know. That is a LOT of copper and the economy does suck.

  • Marvin Nelson

    He doesn’t appear upset that White House tours have been canceled for months. What an idiot!

  • capisce

    To paraphrase: “phony patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel”

  • DarkKnight2016

    Wasn’t it shutdown because of damage from Superstorm Sandy?
