Petition calls to keep Piers Morgan in USA, not deport him
It's no surprise one of those pointless White House.gov petitions to deport Piers Morgan has gotten more than enough signatures (somewhere areound 88,000 as of this writing), just because he came out in favor of gun control. More interesting is that someone else has started a petition to keep him the U.S., because, as they say it, "no one in the UK wants him back." Whew! We thought you were going to say no one watches CNN.
"Keep Piers Morgan in the USA," which only had about 8,000 signatures, reads " We want to keep Piers Morgan in the USA. There are two very good reasons for this. Firstly, the first amendment. Second and the more important point. No one in the UK wants him back. Actually there is a third. It will be hilarious to see how loads of angry Americans react."
When this kind of thing is buried among petitions calling to "Ban Dianne Feinstein," "Officially recognize the Roman Catholic Church as a hate group" and "Recognize the Mountain Goats and name John Darnielle U.S. Poet Laureate," you've got to wonder just how seriously anybody can take these things. We all know the honor of poet laureate should go to 2 Chainz for his Birthday Song.
