Piers Morgan scolds Tenn. senator for ‘pressure cooker control’ joke
Piers Morgan made sure to put on his serious face tonight while scolding Tennessee Sen. Stacey Campfield for his call for pressure cooker control after the Boston Marathon bombings: exploiting a tragedy to score political points is no laughing matter, after all. In his self-appointed role as America’s conscience, Morgan concluded by laying the blame for America’s next mass shooting at the feet of “people like” Campfield.
Uh oh. @piersmorgan and TN state sen Stacey Campfield getting a tad heated. 2nd state senator this week to call him “dude”.

Campfield’s critics accused him of being tasteless, but did his appearance expose him as racist as well?
@piersmorgan these senators poking at you about speaking in an english accent and you going back to britain is kinda racist.
