[Video] Comedian Chelsea Handler ABSOLUTELY DESTROYS Piers Morgan on One of His Final Shows
This isn’t really directly gun related, but Piers Morgan is one of the most outspoken anti-gunners out there, so anytime he gets burned I feel the need to point it out.
I’m not sure what the backstory is that Chelsea Handler hates Piers Morgan so much, but she was obviously pulling no punches when she was interviewed on his show this week.
The show will be one of Morgan’s last as his show has been canceled by CNN due to extremely low ratings.
Handler bashed Morgan for his incessant Tweeting during a commercial break, called him a terrible interviewer, and said that was probably why his show was coming to an end. Ouch.
Handler is certainly no friend to the Second Amendment, having donated large sums of the money to Obama’s election campaign and announcing her intention to vote for him on her show. However, anyone who burns Piers Morgan gets a point or two in my book.
Morgan laughs off the insults, but Handler seems pretty darn serious.
It was announced that Morgan’s show would be canceled last month. Low ratings were cited as the reason, and Morgan believes his stance on gun control played a role. According to the New York Times,
CNN’s president, Jeffrey Zucker, has other problems, but none bigger than Mr. Morgan and his plum 9 p.m. time slot. Mr. Morgan said last week that he and Mr. Zucker had been talking about the show’s failure to connect and had decided to pull the plug, probably in March.
“Look, I am a British guy debating American cultural issues, including guns, which has been very polarizing, and there is no doubt that there are many in the audience who are tired of me banging on about it,” [Morgan] said. “That’s run its course and Jeff and I have been talking for some time about different ways of using me.”
