Piers Morgan just appeared on CNN to discuss last nights interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, and let’s just say he had nothing good to say…
“He was the best advertisement for gun control you could wish for,” Morgan told POLITICO.

Morgan explain how Jones “scared” him more than “intimidated” him, calling him the best ad for gun control he could wish for…
“That kind of vitriol, hatred, and zealotry is really quite scary. I didn’t feel threatened by him, but I’m concerned that someone like him has that level of influence,” Morgan said. “There’s got to be a level of discourse that can rise above what happened last night. It was undignified, unedifying.”
“Sometimes it’s better to let somebody have the rope they need to tie themselves in knots,” Morgan told POLITICO, noting that he had been far more vocal and more passionate in previous interviews with gun advocates. According to Morgan, Jones continued ranting straight through the commercial break that divided the two-segment interview.
