I agree with something Piers Morgan said.

    I always thought that Piers was pretty much pro-America, it was our guns that he hates.

    Trust me on this, it's Harry's American wife who was born and raised in California that is shaping his anti-American thoughts, in the same way that Colin Kaepernick's wife, who is a Muslim American of Egyptian and Middle Eastern decent, who also grew up in California (coincidence?), who is shaping his anti-American thoughts.

    It's a west coast illness that's easily transmitted by physical contact.

    Surprisingly, I've been impressed by some of the interviews I've seen of his, besides his obvious anti-gun beliefs. He really does support free speech; that is, he listens to all sides of the debate and allows others to speak their minds. And while he was NOT in support of Brexit, he has been very outspoken in honoring the referendum.

    If it wasn't for his anti-gun beliefs, I would like him a lot more. He really does seem reasonable to me, outside of being anti-gun.

    Interesting that either would be commenting or giving advise on how we should vote in our election for our next president. Harry is of course a British citizen, so not eligible to vote. Piers is a permanent resident but not a US citizen, and so he too is not eligible to vote.

    But the average American who hears their advise will never think to ask any questions about their citizenship and probably accept their advise as something worth considering. Such are the low information voters which America is infamous for.

    Piers being a resident but not a citizen is probably directly related to Britain’s steep rate of taxation for income.

    Guess all I really knew of him was his anti-gun bias. Glad to learn more.

    As do I. But seeing as Harry is here as a guest at the moment wouldn't it be fitting if President Trump asked Harry to mind his manners or he could choose to leave? It seems that I recall that there were some issues with Harry and Meg trying to gain access to live in Canada. I do also recall that Harry was no longer able to apply for a diplomatic visa.

    They were in Canada for awhile. Vancouver I think. Since Canada is a member of the British Commonwealth Harry is probably free to live there. Maybe his wife isn’t.

    I seem to remember too, that Morgan is a supporter of President Trump. How much so, I don't know for certain. But it shouldn't be surprising given that Morgan was on Celebrity Apprentice, and in fact was one of the more memorable guests.

    We fought a war and a lot of people died so that we don’t have to give a F what Brits think when it comes to politics.

    Why aren't the Dems investigating this blatant foreign interference? I'm totally shocked and appalled.
