ALTHOUGH he has been accused on more than one occasion of being sexist, Piers Morgan came out fighting for women’s rights on British TV programme Good Morning Britain on March 8, International Women’s Day.
He and co-presenter Susanna Reid were interviewing Polish MEP Janusz Korwin-Mikke who came to international attention when he made a statement in the European Parliament saying that women are less intelligent than men and deserve to be paid less.
The somewhat ‘quirky’ MEP said that blondes should earn more than brunettes and that taller people should earn more than short ones which irritated the presenters and resulted in Morgan saying “It’s quite extraordinary to have a man that tall to be so unbelievably dim.”
Finishing the short interview, Korwin-Mikke went on to say that “International Woman’s Day is a communist invention. The Left wants to promote women because the women like to be protected and then they will vote for the Nanny State and the Welfare state.”
Susanna Reid was horrified by his comments but Piers Morgan simply said “You are an incredibly stupid man” and then went on to indicate that in his opinion the MEP is “the greatest advert for Britain leaving the EU.”
