PIERS Morgan was once again exposed as the fake news cockwomble that he is after he wrote a gushing opinion piece about the late Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh, despite attacking him publicly just TWO years ago.
Morgan, 59, lost his lucrative £1.5m-a-year job on ITV’s Good Morning Britain last month after making vile comments about Prince Harry’s wife, Meghan Markle, wrote a North Korean Propaganda-esqe column that heaped praise the Duke, but in 2005, the greasy over-weight liberal luvvie turncoat branded our Phil “The Rudest Man on Earth” after he was royaly snubbed by Prince Philip at a glitzy Buckingham Palace do.
In his column featured Saturday’s Daily Mail, the ex-Mirror boss gagged on his Royal boot writing: “Thank you, Prince Philip. You were the greatest of Britons – a selfless, strong-willed and ferociously loyal man who devoted your life to public duty, your beloved Queen and your adoptive country.”
It would’ve been a brilliant piece if it was written by a sincere journalist, and not a hack that has been fired from not one, not two but THREE journalism gigs after bringing The Daily Mirror, CNN and latterly ITV into disrepute with his big-headed faux claims such as accusing innocent squaddies of torturing Iraqi prisoners, whilst our lads were still on the ground and claiming Meg was lying about her mental health.
Fake News Morgan – who was once pictured at a New York party with Jeffrey Epstein bottom girl Ghislaine Maxwel – was quoted in Britain’s Greatest Newspaper, The Sun in 2019 branding the Phil the “rudest human ever” in an astonishing rant after the Duke ‘snubbed him at royal party’.
Broken Mirror Morgan – who is getting hornier by the day at the thought of a Royal Knighthood – had a “run-in” with non-nonsense Duke of Edinburgh at Prince Charles’ 50th birthday do at Buckingham Palace in the noughties whilst editing The Mirror.
“Prince Philip is the rudest human being I have ever met.” he moaned.
“Suffice it to say, that doesn’t necessarily make him a bad person. Lots of people are rude to me, and often with perfectly good reason.”
“But it gave me a rare personal insight into what a disagreeable character the grand old Duke can be when he chooses.”
The Sun reported: “Piers was Editor of the Daily Mirror at the time and added that Philip “barked menacingly” at him when he asked “who are you?”
He then told him he was “surrounded by the tabloid press” and added that Philip didn’t say a “single further word” to him all evening.”
“Piers said he was “staggered” because someone was so rude to a guest at his son’s birthday party.”
He’s soon changed his tune.
