Piers Morgan blasts 'disrespectful' British anti-Trump protesters: 'When we needed the Americans in World War II, they were there for us'

Piers Morgan, former CNN host and current "Good Morning Britain" anchor, blasted protesters demonstrating President Donald Trump's visit to the U.K.

Trump arrived in England Monday for a state visit to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day. You can read more about the visit here.

What did he say?

During Monday's broadcast of "Good Morning Britain," Morgan spoke out against the hundreds of thousands of protesters across London, calling them "disrespectful" and the protests unnecessary.

"I think, actually, indeed, they ... are a little bit disrespectful to be waving baby balloons all around the place at the President of the United States," he explained. "When we needed the Americans in World War II, they were there for us."

"And if our response [to that country] is to have bigger protests against the leader of United States, than it ever was against the leader of Saudi Arabia ... or China ... or Russia ... There's something a bit warped about our values," Morgan said.

"Is Trump really worse than Putin or King Salman?" he later asked during another portion of the show.

"Americans fought and died alongside us on D-Day," he added.
Trump's visit coincides with the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

More than 20,000 police officers are expected to be stationed at more than 20 locations across the U.K. during the president's visit. The Daily Mail reports that the patrolling effort will cost about $23 million.

The outlet also reports that protesters plan to pilot a 20-foot blimp depicting Trump as an "angry baby," as well as deploy at 16-foot robot featuring the likeness of the U.S. president sitting on a gold toilet.

According to the Sun, "The main mass demonstration is set to take place outside Buckingham Palace [on Monday] from 5.30pm when the president will be enjoying a banquet with the Queen."


  1. Yes Piers, you wouldn't have won the war without the U.S. doing their part in expanding the war. Roosevelt, the other warmonger(Churchill being the principal one), first antagonized Germany by reporting u-boat positions to the British. When Hitler refused to declare war, Roosevelt and his inner circle coerced Japan into attacking via damaging embargoes against Japan's economy. And don't forget Piers, Churchill's refusal of the generous Hitler peace proposal in July 1940, destroyed Britain, the empire, Europe and ranked up over 60 million dead. Britain was ultimately to blame for both world wars, Piers.

  2. lol piers is clearly ignorant of real history. and D-day was a horrid day for french women.
