Sick sarcasm: Piers Morgan jokes that he’s ‘gleeful’ about Newtown massacre

http://twitter.com/#!/piersmorgan/status/281475415250452480

Piers Morgan has a penchant for exploiting tragedies to push a political agenda, but this afternoon, he outdid himself in morbid fashion. Right after tweeting that his anti-gun views derive from his concern for murdered children …

My ’cause’ is stopping more children dying > RT @spongesteve no we are accusing u of exploiting deaths of children to further ur own cause.

… he said this:

Morgan was being sarcastic, of course. But his ghoulish sense of humor and his tasteless timing failed to amuse. Twitterers were shocked, saddened, and thoroughly disgusted:

Can we deport this buffoon already? RT @jaseliberty Wow. Just wow. Piers Morgan has no shame. twitter.com/piersmorgan/st…

[email protected]piersmorgan You are a disgrace & a sick individual. We will be very “gleeful” when you leave our country!

— J Craig (@conservJ) December 19, 2012

@piersmorgan Keep being a tool, you’re doing it so well.

— David (@YouGotTheJuice) December 19, 2012

@piersmorgan You’re a piece of shit.

— Takashi Hara (@gallikuson) December 19, 2012

I’m man enough to admit I’ve shed tears several times over Newtown. @piersmorgan is “gleeful” about it. Absolutely sickening.

— Todd Kincannon (@ToddKincannon) December 19, 2012

This much is clear: Piers Morgan is reveling in all the attention.

Just remember, Musket Morgan: It takes a “showboat” to know one.

Update:

Morgan may love the attention his idiocy brings him, but he’s not taking kindly to well-deserved criticism:

This is the kind of spell-bindingly stupid attack I’m getting now from the gun rights activists: breitbart.com/Big-Journalism…

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 19, 2012

RT @savingjustice: Wow @piersmorgan, you are one sick, pathetic individual. To be happy about the murder of children so YOU can push you …

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 19, 2012

RT @brady_cremeens: So, will CNN let @piersmorgan‘s comments slide? Do they want to be affiliated with the liberal who ADMITTED glee ove …

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 19, 2012

Deliberating twisting my obvious sarcasm to inspire hatred is, yes > [email protected]noltenc @piersmorgan reporting something you wrote is an ‘attack’?

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 19, 2012

Pretty sure Morgan inspires hatred all on his own. And not only is he refusing to accept that he’s a colossal jackass, but he’s lashing out at anyone who dares to point it out:

No @noltenc – you deliberately smeared me for political expediency. Which is sad, pathetic, and journalistically cretinous. Be ashamed.

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 19, 2012

@benshapiro You lot knew what you were doing, especially with your headline. And it was disgraceful. Feel proud, seriously.

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 19, 2012

Gee, projecting much, Piers? How pathetic.

@noltenc I knew, and admired, Andrew Breitbart. He would never have stooped as low as you today. Cheapest of cheap smears.

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 19, 2012

[email protected]piersmorgan You are full of it. You did not “admire” Andrew Breitbart. You said he was “notoriously evil.” townhall.com/tipsheet/katie…

— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) December 19, 2012

The man has no shame.

[email protected]noltenc I like how @piersmorgan is trying to blame you for his obviously politicized and offensive tweet. Classic liberal redirection.
