White House Responds To Piers Morgan Petition, As Morgan Interviews Petition Creator

On “Piers Morgan Tonight,” Piers Morgan interviewed professional conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, one of the people behind the White House petition to deport the British host.

“1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms!” Jones yelled during the contentious interview. ‘Piers, don’t try what your ancestors did before, why don’t you come to America, I will take you out shooting, you can become an American and join the Republic!”

Yeah, it was pretty good TV.

WATCH:

The White House says it will post a formal response to the petition soon, but for now, White House spokesperson Jay Carney said “In the meantime, it is worth remembering that the freedom of expression is a bedrock principle in our democracy.” (h/t Politico)
