Piers Morgan Pleasuring Trump Has Become An X-Rated Meme

Sometimes the internet can be a really great place, and when it comes to memes, it rarely disappoints.

Most people keeping on top of current affairs over the past couple of days will probably have seen a cartoon of Piers Morgan and Donald Trump.

If you haven’t, this is it:

The image was broadcast on BBC Two programme The Mash Report during a segment by comedian Rachel Parris, who was talking about a recent interview between Morgan and the US President.

Parris compared the interview to that of Richard Nixon and David Frost back in 1977, saying: ‘The staging hinted at a great intimacy between the two men’.

Here’s the clip from The Mash Report:

And thanks to that image, we have had a whole stream of memes… and they’re still coming.

And Lord Alan Sugar has been revelling in it all and has tweeted his followers asking for captions:

Morgan has also tweeted the image three times as he took to Twitter to express feelings towards it, questioning how it would have been received if it were a female journalist and UK Prime Minister Theresa May.

Morgan’s initial tweet read:

The BBC thinks this is OK to broadcast. But if it depicted high profile women, there would be outrage. Why the double standard?

He then tweeted the image twice more with other points he wanted to make:

If the BBC broadcast an image like this after a female journalist interviewed @theresa_may – all hell would break loose & people would be fired. Gender equality shouldn’t just apply to pay – should it?

As you’d expect, the image and Morgan’s tweets quickly caught the attention of people of the internet.

Some agreed with Morgan, some didn’t… and some decided to just make fun of the whole thing. Whatever the stance, it made for some pretty interesting (and at times, funny) reading.

Andy Lassner commented:

Sometimes the internet is a complete sewer.  But other times a hilarious picture of Piers Morgan with his head up Trump’s ass goes viral.

A photo of Trump’s mother was shown during the ITV interview, and people couldn’t help but point out the same blonde bouffant nature of their locks.

Speaking about his hair, Trump said:

People find it hard to believe it’s my own, but it’s hanging in. Barely.

Following the interview, Morgan has been criticised by a number of people for not challenging the president enough during their chat.

Responding, Morgan said:

I have interviewed him many times, there is a trust there. He is someone I consider to be a friend of 10 years – I wasn’t going to stamp on his head and bring a club out as some people wanted me to.

One line in particular from his interview triggered a lot of UK viewers who were shocked to hear Trump’s claim he is ‘very popular in your country’.

Piers responded saying ‘Let’s not be too hasty Mr President’, before Trump said ‘I know but I believe that, I really do. I get so much fan mail from people in your country’.

And to top it all off, we must remember:

Good work.
