Take, for example, the satirical British news show The Mash Report. Hosted by Nish Kumar, the show is something of an English Daily Show that features a wide cast of comedians that poke fun at the news.
They recently released a new segment making fun of Piers' recent interview with Trump, which seemed like an extremely glowing and worshipful profile of daddy Donny:
As you've probably gathered by the video's main still, the clip is built around a humorous drawing of Piers performing analingus on the American president. It's absurd, it's crass, and it's undeniably funny.
Mr. Morgan apparently hated the episode, particularly since he found the image so disgusting. Or at least, that's what he claims. But if you hated an image of yourself so much, would you really tweet it out four times in a row? At this point, man's Twitter feed looks like a Piers Morgan/Donald Trump human centipede.
Amusing though this image may be to many people, can you imagine the BBC broadcasting it if the President was Hillary Clinton or the interviewer was a woman? #TheMashReport @BBCTwo pic.twitter.com/2mazoAzpwd— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) February 2, 2018
The BBC thinks this is OK to broadcast. But if it depicted high profile women, there would be outrage.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) February 2, 2018

If the BBC broadcast an image like this after a female journalist interviewed @theresa_may - all hell would break loose & people would be fired. Gender equality shouldn't just apply to pay - should it? pic.twitter.com/9xNqGPjZl9— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) February 2, 2018
To further make, well, an ass of himself, he also shared tweets from other people sharing the image.
And you just did too. But would you have done if it depicted women? https://t.co/v5tXJxkTF6— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) February 2, 2018
And that was after he shared the initial video with the sketch, for all of his 6.36 million followers to see.
