Piers Morgan, the former CNN host who got whipped out of his liberal, gun-grabbing gig by Megyn Kelly’s prime-time arrival on Fox, was back on the small screen Monday.
As Kelly’s guest on “The Kelly File.”
To his credit, Morgan manned up at the outset, acknowledging he’d challenged Kelly via Twitter to “bring it” when her competing show debuted. The fact that he lost his show as a result proved she had, in fact, “brought it,” he said.
“Thank you for being such a gracious loser,” Kelly responded with a twinkle.
Morgan, who’s been gradually modifying the left-leaning commentary he got paid for at CNN with anti-Obama columns for his new employers at the conservative Daily Mail, still managed to draw a gibe from Kelly when he pushed for the Ferguson protesters, looters and arsonists to be named Time magazine’s “Person of the Year.”
“What is it about arson that so appeals to you?” Kelly asked.
That drew the usual Morgan tirade, in the grating Morgan accent, about the deficiencies of the American justice system and the country’s treatments of minorities.
To her credit, Kelly cut him off gently, and possibly making the point of why she’s still hosting a prime-time slot – and he’s not.
“Piers, lecturing the American people … does not usually go over well,” she said.
