The Blaze –
It doesn’t look like conservative commentator Dana Loesch will be appearing on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight” anytime in the near future. Following a Twitter spat, the controversial host derided Loesch, then publicly banned her from his television show.
The intriguing back-and-forth launched after the conservative writer and radio host tweeted a message about the recent machete attack that killed a British soldier in London. She wrote, “Was the guy with the machete a member of the NRA? Asking for a friend.” This comment was reportedly in reference to one of the two men responsible for the terror attack.
Upon seeing the tweet, Morgan became agitated and responded. That’s when a contentious back-and-forth progressed — one that left the television host so frustrated that he decided to unfollow Loesch on Twitter and simultaneously ban her from his show.
“You think the beheading of a soldier is something to be glib about?,” Morgan responded.
Here’s the dialogue between Loesch and the CNN host, as compiled by Mediaite:
Dana Loesch: Was the guy with the machete a member of the NRA? Asking for a friend.
Piers Morgan: You think the beheading of a soldier is something to be glib about??? > RT @DLoeschWas the guy with the machete a member of the NRA?
Dana Loesch: As opposed to you calling me Nancy Lanza because I stood up for 2A rights? Get real, @piersmorgan.
Piers Morgan: No @DLoesch – there is a time to shut up with stupid political wisecracks, and this is one of those times. Show some bloody respect.
Dana Loesch: That’s rich coming from you, @piersmorgan . You stood on the graves of children and attacked my family. Get some consistency.
Piers Morgan: Can’t stomach @DLoesch goading Brits with her outrageous tweeting re beheaded soldier story. Unfollowed, and banned from my show.
