Piers Morgan: Millions of Americans think I’m the new George III

Piers Morgan, the host of the ill-rated Piers Morgan Tonight on CNN, is now speaking out about the hardships he has faced as a result of taking such a bold stand in favor of stricter gun control in America.

In an interview with the UK Mirror (which reads more like a love letter than a piece of journalism), Morgan explained the adversity he has suffered as of late:

“There are millions of Americans who genuinely think I’m the new George III and want to invade their country, take away their guns and overthrow the American government,” he sighs.

“It’s been pretty threatening and fairly menacing at times – you just have to read my Twitter to see I’ve had death threats every day.”

Sigh...

While Morgan lamented about all the negative attention he has received, he was quick to revel in the glory of his new-found Hollywood fame, telling the Mirror:

“Jamie Foxx, a star of the violent, Oscar-nominated movie Django Unchained, is incredibly passionate on the subject of gun control,” says Piers, who bumped into the actor in Los Angeles.

“I saw him in Soho House and he took me out of the elevator for 11 minutes to tell me he’d grown-up a black guy in Texas where, he said, you learn compromise.

“On the red carpet at the Oscars, Dustin Hoffman said to me, ‘God Bless you for what you’re doing about gun control’, and Adele told one of my colleagues, ‘Tell Piers to keep going – he knows what I’m talking about.’

“Then, I was having dinner in an Italian restaurant in Beverly Hills, when Kiefer Sutherland came over, tapped me on the shoulder and said, ‘Thank you.

"What you’re doing is one of the bravest things I’ve ever seen on television.’

“This coming from Jack Bauer in 24 – the single bravest character in the history of television.

“I also saw Warren Beatty, who campaigned quite a bit about guns in the 60s, at a lunch and he also told me to keep going.”

“Who is he whining to? He's whining to all of the cool kids,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “If you're on my side, you get death threats. You get called names. There's nobody except the rest of us losers standing around going, 'I know, I know, we're the fat ugly kids that keep getting hit in the head with the kickball. I know.'”

“Piers is impressing these Hollywood celebrities losing to Rachel Maddow 257,000 to 87,000 viewers,” Stu added.

Despite his obvious ratings woes, which included Piers Morgan Tonight being beaten by Logo TV’s RuPaul’s Drag Race last month, Morgan has proven that he will not go down without a fight.

“He'll blame the NRA,” Pat said. He's destroyed every night by anybody who stands up for the Second Amendment.”

“He's having lunch with all of these stars,” Glenn said. “He's going out a victim. He's going to go out a victim of evil gun control people. The gun lobby was the one that did it to me.”

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
