There.

Right there.

That supercut is just as good, or well, just as revealing.

Oh, what’s SO CLEARLY going through her mind!

nsfw link, i suppose


#4

#5

That was priceless!


#6

In my former career, I knew some on-air talent who couldn’t stand their co-hosts but managed to preserve a semblance of civility when the cameras were on. Morgan must be truly horrible and obnoxious for both of his co-hosts to go after him like that.


#7

…and the camera crew, who did their part keeping the focus on his face as it rather belatedly dawned on him that he’d just been 0wned.


#8

It looks like he was legitimately hurt.

Only amatures get hurt, Piers.

Usually a phony jabbermouth like him would laugh along like, “Ho ho, yes I’m in on the joke too. She doesn’t really mean it. I don’t take her seriously and neither should you. Ha ha.”


#9

Her slaying words and his face in recognition of being slain…I’m going to watch this clip forever.


#10

I’m just a man, but yeah I can clearly see the emotional labor required here. And I bet he still earns more.


#11

ah, i see that susanna has visited the countryside!

[stephen fry once defined countryside (alt. spelling) as the act of killing piers morgan.]

[edit: found a link]

What’s the opposite of dying inside? Because watching that clip did it to me. That was glorious!


#13

I think I’ve posted this before when Morgan was mentioned here, but it bears a repeat imho:


#14

Morgan is our revenge for Rupert Murdoch.

Edit - anyone named Piers is going to be intolerable. Also anybody named Jacob who is not actually Jewish. And Rupert, that’s another. It’s a shorthand so you can dislike someone without wasting time getting to know them.


#15

I keep hoping for Piers Anthony and being disappointed.


#16

There isn’t enough money to have to go to work each day & not punch him in the throat.


#17

The show he is co-host on is the one that tweeted out that video clip, so I say that’s a good barometer for what the cast and crew think of him.


#18

I mean he basically came back to the UK hat-in-hand and tail between his legs. No one particularly likes him.


#19

We ought to do something to free her from these barbaric captors.


#20

Looks to me like they were both in on it, or at the very least playful banter.
