In the latest high-profile spat between a pro-gun advocate and outspoken CNN host Piers Morgan, Breitbart.com’s editor-at-large Ben Shapiro called the Brit a “bully” who is “standing on the graves of the children of Sandy Hook.”
Shortly after spending 15 minutes ranting at CNN host Piers Morgan Monday night, conspiracy theorist and radio host Alex Jones recorded a 12-minute YouTube video that took his paranoia to new heights, suggesting New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg had hired either mafia or undercover cops posing as crackheads to kill him.
“If something happens to us, we’re killed by crackheads, it was the NYPD or mafia they hired. Period,” he told viewers. “If you don’t know Bloomberg is total mafia, you are not living on planet Earth.
Nearly 84,000 people want British CNN host Piers Morgan deported from the U.S. for calling a gun advocate stupid, but at least 6,000 would prefer he’d stay on American soil.
The reason? The UK doesn’t actually want him back — or so says a new petition posted to the White House e-petition website.
On Monday night, CNN host Piers Morgan invited Alex Jones — 9/11 Truther, radio host and founder of the “Deport Piers Morgan” petition — on his show to debate him on the issue of gun control in America. What resulted was less of a debate and more of a verbal trainwreck, as Jones delivered an epic rant for the YouTube age, calling for a gun-powered revolution against “megabanks” and “foreigners” and somehow invoking Hitler, Stalin, anti-depression drugs and Europeans currently burning down their cities. (They are not.)
Piers Morgan likes to be the centre of attention.
“I’ve always been at the heart of stuff, wanting to take risks and challenge myself and not be afraid of failing. God knows I’ve had some catastrophic failures, but I’ve always learned from them and always moved on quite quickly.”
