Piers Morgan is a professional media troll. Seriously, it’s how he makes his living.
There was a time that Americans didn’t know who Morgan was. And he drove himself into the culture wars, not because he gives a damn about them, but because he feeds off attention the way that flies feed on fecal matter. Somewhere along the way he became one of those lefties that social media cons cited for criticizing some lefty craziness. “Even Piers Morgan…” is how the clickbait headlines would begin. Except that there’s no, “Even Piers Morgan”.
Morgan doesn’t give a damn about anything except ratings and clicks. He’s built his career around befriending and then screwing celebrities.
The only way to beat that kind of troll is to ignore him. Instead some social media conservatives, who have tossed out the conservativism for the culture war, adopted him as one of a long series of lefty culture war heroes because he occasionally condemns some lefty overreach.
And that’s why a month from now, we’ll see more, “Even Piers Morgan” or “Piers Morgan Calls Out Cancel Culture” nonsense.
You know what, Piers Morgan knows it too.
