Piers Morgan reminds me of Geraldo Rivera. He’s all over the map on issues. One minute he’s passionate on something (like his support for Trump” and the next minute, he’s a NeverTrump lunatic.
This is the problem with phony people. They don’t even know who they are and can’t stick with one thing for too long. But one thing Piers *thinks* he knows a lot about are US elections, and according to him – a Brit living thousands of miles away from the US – our elections are fair and perfect, and if you don’t agree, he’ll call you an “election denier.”
Well, he tried that stuff wit Kari Lake, and it backfired spectacularly.
Western Journal reported that Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake appeared a happy warrior while verbally jousting with British journalist Piers Morgan over her decision to challenge Democratic Gov. Katie Hobbs’ victory in November.
By the official tally, Hobbs won by about 17,000 votes, or 0.7 percent of the ballots counted.
In her lawsuit, Lake pointed to the Election Day chaos in Maricopa County involving misconfigured ballot printers in the majority of voting centers, a lack of chain-of-custody documentation for over 300,000 ballots, and whistleblower allegations that the county failed to verify the identity of tens of thousands of mail-in voters as reasons the election in the county must be redone.
Morgan labeled both Lake and former President Donald Trump election deniers.
“I would simply say to you what I said to Donald Trump: I don’t think it works for you guys. I don’t think denying the results of democratic elections is an effective tool to actually win elections,” Morgan said.
“We can’t continue to run elections this way, and we know that we won, and we’re going to continue to fight this in a court of law,” Lake replied.
She also pointed to a December Rasmussen poll that found that 72 percent of those surveyed agreed with the statement she made after the botched election: “This isn’t about Republicans or Democrats. This is about our sacred right to vote, a right that many voters were sadly deprived of on Nov. 8.”
Lake noted that 75 percent of Election Day voters chose her, meaning she was the most impacted by the ballot printer problems in 59 percent of voting centers.
“They printed intentionally the wrong image on the ballot, and that was meant to have the ballots spit out and rejected by the tabulators” primarily in Republican areas, she alleged.
Lake upbraided Morgan, saying, “It’s really rich that you’re sitting across the pond acting like you know what happened on Election Day.”
Yes, it’s fun to put Piers in his place, but I really wish we’d just leave that pompous old Brit alone and let him destroy his career in jolly ol’ England.
But I am so happy to see Kari still fighting. In all honesty, we should STILL be fighting for that 2020 sham. Sad how that just disappeared.
What a pathetic country we’ve turned into, right?
