Piers Morgan calls NRA’s LaPierre ‘dim-witted,’ others focus on his spittle


Bravo’s chef Tom Colicchio got the spittle-ball rolling. As Twitchy reported, NRA Chief Wayne LaPierre appeared as a guest on “Meet the Press” this morning.

I never believed in Lizard People until I saw this Wayne LaPierre interview on “Meet the Press.”

Yuk, yuk, yuk! It’s getting tired, Mr. Black.

David Gregory completely let his bias show; to Piers “Musket” Morgan, that’s totally awesome. Journalism shmournalism!

Watching @davidgregory expose Wayne Lapierre for what he is – a dangerous, dim-witted, deluded menace to American safety. @nra

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 23, 2012

Er. Look in the dim-witted mirror, sir. As Twitchy readers know, thinking is hard for Piers.

He’s the tool > RT @meetthepress: LaPierre: “a gun is a tool, the problem is the criminal.”

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 23, 2012

Thinking is hard and so is maturity. But what is really important to add to our national dialogue?

So… Did anyone else see the frothing Wayne LaPierre on #MTP this morning? I was making tortellini and nearly dropped the rolling pin.

That’s right. We need to have a national conversation about spittle, according to Twitter users, including some members of the media. It is the most pressing issue of our time, evidently.

Angles! Wait, but whose spittle was on the grassy knoll? Were there two spittle-spewers or just one?

HD is not kind to the spittle on the right of LaPierre’s mouth.

I believe LaPierre is literally foaming at the mouth. twitter.com/anamariecox/st…

The Guardian’s Dominic Rushe includes a photo, too.

That spittle in the corner of Wayne LaPierre’s mouth is made of bile. #nra twitter.com/dominicru/stat…

MSNBC’s Finney thinks it is of the utmost import!

The spittle in the right side of LaPierre’s mouth is distracting! #mtp

— Karen Finney (@finneyk) December 23, 2012

How can she fawn over Gregory’s bias while distracted by spittle?

Excellent job by @davidgregory on #mtp pressing tough questions with LaPierre

— Karen Finney (@finneyk) December 23, 2012

Other Twitter users join in the froth-obsession. See, he’s totally crazy and stuff. Because, saliva.

The spittle on the corner of NRA’s Wayne LaPierre’s mouth during his Meet the Press interview doesn’t make him look less unhinged.

— Jenifer Ward (@jenifer_ward) December 23, 2012

The spittle on the right side of Wayne LaPierre’s mouth has been glistening for the entire duration of interview. Yuck.

— Erica Payne (@EricaPayneAP) December 23, 2012

Does that spittle in the corner of LaPierre’s mouth count as foam? #MeetThePress #NRA

— Kid Sisyphus (@KidSisyphus) December 23, 2012

NRA exec VP LaPierre needs to swipe that bit of spittle from the left corner of his mouth on the next commercial break. Come on, dude.

— Kevan S (@TheSherbinator) December 23, 2012

so that’s what it’s called I just said foaming “@finneyk: The spittle in the right side of LaPierre’s mouth is distracting! #mtp

— Robert Barletta (@RobertBarletta) December 23, 2012

@stupolitics In a photo finish bang bang play at the plate it’s LaPierre by a Spittle!

— Richard W (@ilovaussiesheps) December 23, 2012

Nothing says “not crazy” like white spittle at the side of your mouth – insane arguments from Wayne LaPierre #nra #meetthepress

— Scott Reid (@_scottreid) December 23, 2012

I think its probably appropriate RT @finneyk: The spittle in the right side of LaPierre’s mouth is distracting! #mtp

— ProfB (@AntheaButler) December 23, 2012

Is there a “Wayne LaPierre spittle” parody account yet?

— Chris L (@brittonlowe) December 23, 2012

I noticed that too @skap5: Lapierre is frothing at the mouth, literally. #MTP

— Richard Florida (@Richard_Florida) December 23, 2012

I took a break from cooking and chores to search for clip of LaPierre frothing at the mouth. I’M ONLY HUMAN

— Bridget Williams (@bridgetwi) December 23, 2012

The spittle in the corner of Wayne LaPierre’s mouth needs its own twitter feed.

— Mike Wade (@beattrapkit) December 23, 2012

Oh, no.

Hey Twiiter, can we just pretend we made a parody account for the spittle on the side of LaPierre’s mouth and leave it at that? #mtp #nra

— Andy Cobb (@AndyCobb) December 23, 2012

Yes, please.
