‘Treacherous little back-stabber’: Piers Morgan destroys CNN’s Ana Navarro, ‘GMB’ ratings tank

Powered by Topple

With former President Donald Trump no longer in office, CNN’s favorite Republican Ana Navarro lost much of her appeal to the liberal media who no longer have much use for Trump-haters allegedly from the right — just ask the Lincoln Project grifters.

In a quest to stay in the limelight, Navarro glommed onto the controversy swirling around Piers Morgan being critical of Meghan Markle. In today’s post-Obama world, a white man cannot criticize a woman of color, even if she is biracial, without being called a racist.

Morgan, who used to have a show on CNN, walked away from his job hosting “Good Morning Britain” when the woke mob turned on him for saying that he didn’t believe Markle’s tale of woe expressed during last week’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Taking to Twitter, Navarro reveled in Morgan being out of work, misrepresenting the reason why.

“If no other change comes out of the #OprahMeghanHarry interview, that it lead to
@piersmorgan getting fired again from yet another job, seems like a good outcome for the benefit of humanity,” she tweeted.

Of course, Morgan wasn’t fired, but Navarro never allowed facts to get in the way of a narrative sure to be embraced by the left.

Morgan would respond to the tweet, and it seems clear that he had a pretty good grasp on the content of his antagonizer’s character, calling Navarro “a treacherous little back-stabber.”

“Hi Ana, I wasn’t fired by ITV (I’m still working for them) just as I wasn’t fired by CNN (I was offered a new 2-year deal – ask Jeff),” he tweeted. “But great to see you’re just as big a treacherous little back-stabber now as you were when I worked at CNN.”

The Duchess of Sussex and her whipped husband Prince Harry told Oprah there was palace concern about how dark the skin color of their child might be. At one point in the interview, Markle said she was contemplating suicide and that the palace offered no help.

In defense of the British monarchy, Morgan said afterwards that he didn’t believe Markle, a former B-list actress.

A stance he stood by even after time for reflection.

“On Monday, I said I didn’t believe Meghan Markle in her Oprah interview,” Morgan tweeted last Wednesday. “I’ve had time to reflect on this opinion, and I still don’t. If you did, OK. Freedom of speech is a hill I’m happy to die on. Thanks for all the love, and hate. I’m off to spend more times with my opinions.”

In fact, he has since referred to her assertions as “Meghan Markle’s bullsh*t.”

A staunch supporter of the Royal family, Morgan called on his fellow British subjects to “stand up for our Queen” in the face of a “disgusting” campaign to paint the family as racists.

He tweeted: “There’s a very deliberate & malicious campaign being perpetrated by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to smear, defame and trash Britain, our Monarchy & the Royal Family as a bunch of heartless racists. It’s disgusting. Time to stand up for our Queen.”

“Good Morning Britain” took a ratings hit without Morgan, the Daily Mail reported.

Average viewership was down on Monday’s show by 255,700 compared to last Monday.

“Yesterday’s show had just 1.3 million people tuning in at its peak – with an average of 895,700 viewers,” the British tabloid reported. “For comparison, one Monday prior – on March 8 – 1.9 million viewers tuned in to watch the panel react to the Megan and Harry Oprah interview which aired overnight. Its viewership averaged out at 1,151,400 million.”

The previous Monday, March 1, the show hit 1.7 million peak viewers, with an average of 978,000.

A scan of the reactions to the story show that Morgan has his share of supporters, and his share of those who doubt Markle.
