Fox Business Network host Stuart Varney appeared on Thursday’s “Mornings on the Mall,” WMAL 105.9 FM, a Washington, D.C. station. During his interview with host Larry O’Conner and Republican strategist Sherri Jacobus, he weighed in on CNN host Brit Piers Morgan’s stance on gun control.
Varney, who is a former British citizen, said it made him “uncomfortable” to hear Morgan lecturing Americans as to how they should run their country and conduct themselves.
“It makes me very uncomfortable,” Varney said. “And I don’t think we should do that. I don’t think British people should come over here with that hoity-toity accent, talk down to Americans and tell Americans that there is something wrong with their society.”
Jacobus interjected, “The accent is the part we like, though.”
O’Conner said to Varney, who has a noticeable British accent himself, “You never do that, Stuart Varney. You never come across as hoity-toity. In fact you sound like a football hooligan or something.”
Varney, who hosts “Varney & Company” weekdays on Fox Business Network and is a frequent financial commentator on Fox News Channel, emphasized that he likes America as it is.
“[The accent] is associated with snobbery,” Varney elaborated. “The worst thing you can do is come over here with a British accent and talk down to people as you’re supposedly giving the news. I don’t think you should do that, period.”
“I want to go on the record: I love it here,” Varney added. “I’m happy here. I don’t want to change anything, OK?”
