Piers Morgan continually tried to get Dana Loesch and Scottie Hughes to say they had a right to a tank, trying to use an extreme example to make both of them look extreme. And in response Loesch continually said the 2nd amendment protects our right to bear firearms – and if a tank is a considered a firearm then sure. Obviously it’s not, but what Morgan was trying to do was to make her admit that she’s ‘interpreting’ the Constitution to make his point that if you don’t need a tank, then why do you need an AR-15 or something.
And it went on from there. Dana even tried to explain to Piers a thing or two about ‘assault rifles’ – or rather why they aren’t assault rifles but Piers just kept wondering why she ‘needs’ something that can shoot 100 bullets in a minute.
All in all Dana Loesch and Scottie Hughes stood their ground as Piers tried to bully them through the whole interview.
This clip epitomizes why I hate these so-called “news” shows. What’s the point of inviting guests on the show if you aren’t going to let them answer your questions? Kudos to both of those women for standing up to Morgan’s attempted bullying.
Piers Morgan moved to the United States because he could use his accent to pass himself off as a respectable journalist. The Brits know better – he’s just a tabloid hack.
