Jim Jefferies and Piers Morgan Should have a Celebrity Death Match

Australian comedian Jim Jefferies cursed Morgan out during Friday's round table discussion on "Real Time with Bill Maher". "Hillary Clinton would not have had a cabinet with Betsy DeVos and f*!ing Rick Perry!" he shouted. Jeffries said. After Morgan decried Jeffries' "hysteria", Jeffries responded, "You just like that you won The Apprentice and you have a famous friend, mate".

In a clip from Friday's show, Maher confronts Morgan by saying that a Hillary Clinton administration probably wouldn't have the same epic list of disasters - the Muslim ban, Betsy DeVos, just to name a couple - that Trump's administration now does.

Morgan then repeated the party line that "there is no Muslim ban", even as federal courts docked Trump's executive order, citing the administration's many references to it being a "Muslim ban".

Piers started by imploring Maher to "calm down" and went on to say that there is no Muslim ban.

Summer Too Far - Antonio Conte Brushes Off Diego Costa Speculation
Arsenal at Stamford Bridge, claim that Tianjin Quanjian have reached an agreement with Costa over a £70m move next summer. It was reported in Spain this morning that Costa had a deal in place for a mega-money move.

Jefferies then calls Morgan a brown-noser, and when Morgan tries to act refined and tell Jefferies "your losing your audience", Jefferies hits back with the tried and true method of settling arguments by round of applause.

The political grudge match began when Rowling, now known nearly as well for her liberal social values as for creating Harry Potter, tweeted to tell her huge army of fans how much she had enjoyed watching Morgan being attacked by a forthright panel of commentators in an argument about the impact of Donald Trump's presidency on the popular American current affairs discussion show, Real Time with Bill Maher. "He worked up to it, mate". "It's ridiculous. He's not the new Hitler".

Moments later, Jefferies punctuated his point by giving Morgan the middle finger while the crowd cheered him on.

The always controversial British TV host got his ass handed to him on Twitter over the last few hours, fresh off a controversial appearance on Bill Maher's HBO show last night - and the tweets today are FIRE.

Careful, Piers. Wouldn't want to sound "unpleasant".

The exchange was a delightful fiasco, and famed writer J.K. Rowling made a decision to pitch in on the clip.

The topic of Trump came up, and Piers immediately got defensive.
