Former CNN anchor Piers Morgan is back to his left-wing tricks again. On Wednesday’s episode of ITV's Good Morning Britain, Morgan and his co-host Susanna Reid bullied Conservative Party member of British Parliament Jacob Rees-Mogg, a possible Prime Minister candidate, over his deeply-held religious beliefs.
Starting out by asking him about Brexit, Reid suddenly asked the lawmaker, "What are your views on same-sex marriage? Is that something that you support?"
Rees-Mogg replied, "Well, I'm a Catholic, and I take the teaching of the Catholic Church seriously."
Reid rudely interrupted him saying, "Does that mean that you oppose same-sex marriage?"
The guest repeated his answer, leading to a back-and-forth between the two before Morgan decided to double-team Rees-Mogg.
"I'm a Catholic, but I actually don't agree with the Catholic teaching. You do,” Morgan emphasized.
When Rees-Mogg stuck to his answer, Morgan and Reid continually interrupted him as he tried to answer.
Reid tried to smear him by saying, "You voted against it (same-sex marriage), didn't you?"
The British lawmaker gave a historical context for his vote: "I did ... marriage is a sacrament, and a sacrament is under the the authority of the Church, not of the state. This is exactly the argument that Thomas More made in opposition to the marriage of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn."
Morgan and Reid continued their badgering by asking their guest about sexual sin and the teachings of the Catholic Church.
The conservative lawmaker told them, "None of these issues are party political. They are issues that are decided by Parliament on free votes. They are not determined by the prime minister. There's no question of any of these laws being changed. There would not be a majority in the House of Commons for that."
When the far-left hosts realized Rees-Mogg would not to back down, they switched topics in an attempt to throw him off. "What's your view of abortion,” asked Morgan.
Rees-Mogg declared, "I'm completely opposed to abortion. Life begins at the point of conception."
After more arguing and editorializing from the far-left hosts over extraordinary circumstances including rape and incest, Rees-Mogg repeated, "Yes, I am." When the two far left hosts pressed, he reaffirmed, "Life is sacrosanct, and begins at the point of conception."
Viewers took to Twitter to condemn Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid over the obvious ambush of their conservative guest:
Morgan, known for his pettiness, immediately fought back:
