Co-host Susanna Reid’s brilliant BURN achieves the impossible: it makes Piers Morgan shut up

Blowhard conservative talking head Piers Moragn just got firmly put in his place by co-host Susanna Reid on Good Morning Britain. 

The end result is a pure joy to watch.

“I get annoyed when people start banging on about politics on Facebook,” Morgan drones on, sans irony.

“I’ve had to unfriend family members, ’cause it’s like I can’t… I need some respite.

Can’t you just put a picture of your little kid, y’know, having an ice-cream or something?”

Enter Reid, eyes perceptibly rolling.

“I know exactly what you mean,” she says.

“Someone just keeps going on and on and on, and you just need respite and a break. And you just wish you could defriend them, but you’re just forced every day to listen to their views… I know exactly how you feel.”

For perhaps the first time in his professional life, Morgan appears to be at a loss for words. And it’s a good look on him.
