Piers Morgan: My, that Barack Obama is a perfect physical specimen

posted at 9:21 pm on December 3, 2013 by Mary Katharine Ham

Giving Tingles a run for his money, here. Maybe they’ll give him a sit-down.

I mused on Twitter today that the strength of recent British dramas— “Downton Abbey” the best example— is that the elegant accents make the ludicrous plot twists seem more plausible and dignified. The same is not true of Morgan whose cartoonishness cannot be made dignified.

In this segment, a perfect storm of tabloid body trashing disguised as a “health” segment, Morgan’s mean spirit finding a predictable and Republican target, a reference to “Scandal’s” Olivia Pope as if she were a real person, and among the most fawning statements about President Obama ever made in public.

PIERS MORGAN, HOST: Chris Christie, is his weight a genuine issue for the American people after a fit athletic president who turned out to be not quite what people thought? Does it matter that Chris Christie is a big guy?

JUDY SMITH, CRISIS MANAGEMENT EXPERT: You know what? I think that, I would hope that the public would focus on selecting a president based on where they think the country should go, what the policies and practices of the president, and not really based on weight.

MORGAN: But if you were advising him, would you say, right, he’s obviously lost a lot of weight in the last few months. Would you say to him, “Right, you’ve got to have a proper game plan by the time you launch a run, or don’t launch a run, in the next couple of years, you’ve got to be down to this kind of weight, otherwise forget it?”

SMITH: No, I wouldn’t say that.

MORGAN: You wouldn’t have that conversation?

SMITH: No, I wouldn’t say that.

MORGAN: Olivia Pope would, wouldn’t she? She’d say, “Cut it.”

SMITH: I think what you want to say is that you want to be as anybody would be, that you want to be healthy. And each person decides that for himself.

MORGAN: But you have to be presentable?

SMITH: Absolutely, you have to be presentable. Of course you have to.

MORGAN: But does it [unintelligible], after the perfect Barack Obama – who’s a perfect physical specimen to many people’s eyes – does it matter? Or is it actually somebody very different, somebody who’s much more of a regular kind of guy who likes cheeseburgers and beer and, but appears to be a straight talker? Somebody who is perhaps more of a straight talker than it appears Barack Obama turned out to be?

I suppose Morgan felt the need to pad (no pun intended) his intimation that Obama might not always be telling the perfect truth with a truly generous compliment.

But perfect specimen? Come on. Not even the best in the Senate.

Two can play at this tabloid game, Piers.

He is a specimen alright.

Settle down Spanky, just admit that it’s you who thinks obozo is a perfect specimen, and quit hiding behind that bogus “many people think” BS.

Flange on December 3, 2013 at 9:31 PM

Saggy boobs. He needs a push-up bra. Also, when guys have big feet, well you know what that means. But big ears, oh man, that’s just the opposite.

msupertas on December 3, 2013 at 9:34 PM

Both of this little pansy’s shoulders together wouldn’t make one of mine.

And he throws like a girl.

But maybe Piers likes his male ‘specimens’ to be weak and feminine.

But at least Piers didn’t go on to gush over MoochHell’s ‘toned arms’. I get so sick of hearing the various sycophants remark on that.

Does Piers like girls at all?
Just wondering.

Only if you’re into thin-skinned, man-child, effeminate men with mommy was a wh0re issues.

RovesChins on December 3, 2013 at 9:35 PM

You’ll have to pardon Piers. He can’t see very well, being as he has his nose planted firmly up King Barack’s ass.

GarandFan on December 3, 2013 at 9:35 PM

And you people brush off my observations of liberals’ cuckoldry to the black man.

Perfect example of the sexual proclivities of such notables like Maher and Matthews and now Morgan.

He does, but in a Rachel Maddow kind of way.

The photo of Obama is pre-AIDS.

after the perfect Barack Obama – who’s a perfect physical specimen to many people’s eyes

LOL. Here’s Barky demonstrating the perfect golf swing. I would also include some of Barky’s perfect bowling technique (needed by anyone who wants to break 30 … but not 40) but I think all Barky bowling footage has been disappeared with the alleged bin laden corpse. I think Barky missing 21 jump shots in a row was also disappeared, though the one of him accidentally getting the ball in the hoop still lives. Of course, Barky only plays basketball every day so no one would expect him to be able to shoot worth a damn – as with everything else Barky has ever tried, and always failed .. forever.

Yeah … quite the physical specimen that Indonesian is …

ThePrimordialOrderedPair on December 3, 2013 at 9:43 PM

I would be much more up to a shirtless Thune, who doesn’t support Amnesty, rather than amnesty monger Flake being shirtless. I have standards!

thuja on December 3, 2013 at 9:43 PM

Once again,those aren’t “pecs” on Preznent Choomie-head.
It’s called THC-induced gynecomastia. Flabby man-boobs brought about as the result of marijuana use.

Hey, PIERS ! …………….. Barack is already married.

Maybe they’ll give him a sit-down.

or a lap dance…..

Didn’t Obama used to have hair on his chest?

Did Chrissie Matthews lick it all off?

Reid’s been sucking on one, and Pelosi on the other. To be expected.

The way he clings on obozo’s ass he really should be named Worf.

He’s got bigger boobs, and is a bigger boob, than Rachel Ray.

The list of Governor Christie’s body parts, and the tortures to which I could be subjected by them, that I find preferable to any of Obama’s policies is very long and not at all distinguished.

James on December 3, 2013 at 9:52 PM

Morgan is just jealous of Matthews.

Piers Morgan and Chris Matthews, cable television hosts, to square off in a duel for the love of their life, Barack Obama, the 44th President of the United States. The mud wrestling contest will be held at a venue to be announced in Washington, DC, on December 25, the birthday of the first Messiah. Calls to the Obama girl of 2008 were not returned.

May not be AIDS. Could be lung cancer. But the man is definitely dying; and nothing is more dangerous than a dying man who believes that there is no heaven. He is desperate to achieve “immortality” by creating a utopia here on earth.

kcewa on December 3, 2013 at 10:02 PM

“perfect specimen” ???? ROTFL

Who talks like that? Sure if your discussing a running back or Ivan Drago but he’s the frigin president not an underwear model.

Pierce is such a weirdo. I bet he’s got a lot of toys in his closet. And some evening dresses and stockings.

BoxHead1 on December 3, 2013 at 10:06 PM

Morgan the fellator. Embarrassing not to mention unhygienic.

FlaMurph on December 3, 2013 at 10:47 PM

I can’t decide which pisses me off more…

Blatant, homo-erotic worship of that skinny little piece of sh*t…

Or the fact that no one at all so far, has challenged the ridiculous assertion that Fatty McButterpants is the ‘de-facto’ Republican nominee.

a5minmajor on December 3, 2013 at 10:48 PM

Oh, and typical Leftist fascination with the “perfect pant-leg crease”, as opposed to, “Is there anything in this ‘runway-model-with-a-staff’s’ brain”.

To which, the answer is of course, nothing but narcissism.

It doesn’t matter that obama’s a complete dipsh*t by any reasonable standard or measure, “look how hot he is”. Morgan, like all leftists, can’t keep their little hearts from going pitter-pat, and meanwhile, their brains left to go pick up some more baby and patchouli oil.

a5minmajor on December 3, 2013 at 10:48 PM

Do we seriously need to “challenge” that light-in-the-loafers Limey’s pick? We already know he has horrible taste in men.

And let’s face it: the odds of Gov. McButterpants making it to 2016 is about 50:50.

Maddie on December 4, 2013 at 5:33 AM

He’s looking for man-love in all the wrong places.

kregg on December 4, 2013 at 6:03 AM

“Perfect specimen”?

Uh, has Morgan ever seen that little jog Barry does down the Air Force One steps? Tiny fists flailing in the air?

No. Just. No.

Grace_is_sufficient on December 4, 2013 at 6:12 AM

Its OK if Morgan is homosexual, but he should just say so.

TX-96 on December 4, 2013 at 6:17 AM

Spoken by a man with more chins than bambi has creases in his slacks!

If Fatty McButterpants (R-NJ) supports a D for gov in NY, how much support do you suppose he will get from other R’s?

Mini-14 on December 4, 2013 at 8:08 AM

Uh, Dubya was far more athletic than Princess Momjeans. Plus, BO has moobs, not pecs, that is never attractive.

hollygolightly on December 4, 2013 at 8:47 AM

Did you check Obama’s teeth? I’m sure that Pierce is about to get a tingle somewhere else…. I think this is Britains revenge for the Revolutionary War.

JohnGalt23 on December 3, 2013 at 9:52 PM

I could see Putin holding Obama by the ankles and giving him a swirly in the presidential commode.

“This is for Glaznost!”

Flush…

“This is for Peace through Strength!”

Flush…

But perfect specimen? Come on. Not even the best in the Senate.

Senator John Thune (R-SD) could probably run rings around Obama, even on a basketball court.

Obama is a perfect specimen for the Frankenstein monster’s brain.
