And what's more, Ron ...
Then, as Ronald Reagan put it, “there you go again”. Another person who is not white being gratuitously attacked by the host of upcoming Murdoch TV offering The All-New Percy Moron Show for the benefit of Himself Personally Now. “Biden doesn’t stand a chance in 2024 and neither does the epically unpopular and useless Kamala so unless Joe finds a new VP to succeed him soon the Dems can kiss goodbye to the White House” reads the headline, in a routine slice of mardiness and stinking hypocrisy.
Only last January, Morgan had told his followers “An amazing, historic moment. Kamala Harris becomes the first woman, and the first woman of colour, to be Vice President of the United States of America” before adding the hashtag #CeilingSmashed.
But now he’s been inducted into the Murdoch mafiosi. And will soon be appearing on the not-at-all-right-wing-and-shouty-with-it Sky News Australia, and of course Fox News Channel (fair and balanced my arse). And so: “'Dumb and Dumber' is one of my favorite [sic] movies … I regret to say that President Joe Biden and his Vice-President, Kamala Harris are fast becoming the political equivalent of Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne”.
And, as befits this mouth on stilts, there is more. “Barely a day goes by when one of them isn’t doing something worthy of abject mockery - from Biden falling asleep at the COP26 climate change summit”. Just fuck off. So Joe had a snooze. Unlike alleged Prime Minister Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson who was fast asleep with no face covering.
Taking time off from attacking her ...
Go on. “And it’s not just me that thinks this”. Makes a change. “A truly shocking new USA Today-Suffolk University poll reveals crushingly bad approval ratings for Biden … the only real surprise is that anyone’s really surprised”. Like you weren’t last January, Percy. Have another try. “President Biden’s presidency is not yet a year old but is already in deep trouble”. Sorting out the mess left by your pal Combover Crybaby Donald Trump, eh?
So what’s the problem? Wait for it: “an insanely woke agenda”. Percy, you wouldn’t even know what “woke” means (clue: it’s not just a term of abuse). So who agrees with him? “As Joe Concha put it on Fox News”. He’ll be citing Tucker Carlson next. His pal Tucker Carlson who bangs on about The Great Replacement. But nothing racist about that.
... so he can attack her instead
Then he gives the game away, that game being that Morgan has veered an awfully long way to the right. He thinks Biden should ditch Ms Harris. “He could then appoint a new voter-friendly moderate VP”. Someone explain what makes Kamala Harris not moderate? Anyone? And for those who think Morgan hasn’t veered right, try this snippet: ”the current woke-crazed Democratic party”. Using Mail Online to set himself up for FNC.
Hello all those people who thought Piers Morgan laying into Bozo and his ministers meant he cared about ordinary people. This latest column shows just who he really cares about - Himself. And if that means veering to the right to make himself at home at Sky News Oz and Fox News, then he’ll do just that. Good Morning Britain is well rid of him.
