Irish give Piers Morgan a roasting after he claims to be Irish while talking about President Trump

Piers Morgan claims to be Irish - Irish Twitter users disagree

TV presenter  Piers Morgan angered  lot of Irish people when he claimed to be Irish himself. One critic said: “There is nothing so annoying as a smug Englishman.”
The confrontational star has a way of rubbing people up the wrong way which led to him being rejected by Irish Twitter users in a brilliantly brutal fashion.

The trouble started when Morgan was in the middle of upsetting somebody else. He was defending Donald Trump who had come under criticism from author JK Rowling for failing to shake a young boy’s hand.

Morgan tweeted a screenshot of a quote from the boy’s mother who said that Rowling had got the wrong end of the stick.
It all seems fair enough, but the thing about Morgan is that many people just can’t seem to stand the self-satisfied way he goes about proving people wrong.
One person tweeted to him: “There is nothing quite so annoying in this world as a smug Englishman.”
Morgan’s rather smug two-word reply was: “I’m Irish.”
Morgan’s father came from Co Galway so he is eligible to claim Irish nationality. However, the Twitter users of Ireland were not thrilled at the news.
A lot of international celebrities have delved into the genealogy websites to explore their Irish roots, but while Irish people are usually happy enough for foreign born stars such as George Clooney, Reese Witherspoon, Matthew McConaughey Ed Sheeran or Ryan Reynolds to talk up their Irish heritage, they just weren’t having it coming from Morgan.
Here are some of the best responses:
