The most ridiculous item of the day: Piers Morgan, Keith Olbermann feud on Twitter

In today’s edition of grumpy older men, Piers Morgan and Keith Olbermann are trading jabs over… well, everything at this point.

To be fair, Olberman poked the bear yesterday when he tweeted a snide remark referencing Christine O’Donnell’s recent walk-out on Morgan’s show: “Who walks out on @PiersMorgan tonight? I’m betting on…the audience (as usual).” This prompted Morgan to respond, “More watch me in Belgium than you globally” in a RT of the original comment. He also invited Olbermann on the show, but basically begged for a response by adding, ” …or are you too busy with your 40,000 viewers a night?”

For now, Olbermann has apparently put it all behind him. His last tweet to Morgan was late last night, in which he said, “Just to wrap this up, most recent of 12 pleadings by @PiersMorgan that I appear on his show arrived 7/26. After he ‘banned me for life.'”

So whose side are you on here, PopWatchers? Do you think this talking-head pissing contest will continue? And are their prostates to blame?

    I don’t watch Olbermann, but Piers is such an insufferable ponce, I have to side with Keith.

    • Jay

      Same. I used to like him, but after seeing the walk-out video when he said “I thought I was being charming” I definetly on Keith’s side.

      • Please…

        you know these two are just a couple of beers from making out on national TV.

    • Sara

      Agree. He and his crazy chin need to go back to the UK.

    • Keith Olbermann

      I’d love to have Piers’ Morgan in my @ss.

    • tim

      Keith needs to go away already. I don’t even want to hear about that nut.

  • DC

    Hi Sandra! I don’t really care much about this post, but I think the key word is actually supposed to be “feud”.

    • Sandra Gonzalez

      Sorry; thanks, DC.


    Who the hell cares? Please don’t give either one of these nitwits attention. Please let them fade into obscurity as they should.

  • Weston

    I don’t watch Piers, but I would certainly take him over that complete moron Keith Olbermann. What a horrible, horribly human being.

    • Chloe

      You accuse Keith Olbermann of being a moron but yet you call him a “horribly human being”? Brilliant.

      • bsure

        LOL, burn

      • And also, me too as well.

        I like hypocritical grammar policing too. “But yet”? Pick one or the other. It’s redundant. Also, it’s redundant. And I’m a hypocrite.

  • Yo

    Both suck but Olberman is far worse.

  • real fan

    Keith, very funny’ Piers…never mind.

  • David

    You so hit the nail on the head! Grumpy old men is right! Just tack on white and straight, They are what’s wrong w CNN. They are both so unpalatable. It’s like the cable networks are afraid not to have old white straight men on

    • aj

      Have you not heard of Anderson Cooper, older white gay man on CNN?

      • nancy

        AC – older? By whose definition? Silver hair does not equate to old

    • Lily

      Umm, hello… Keith Olbermann is gay.

  • Mike

    Olbermann is the biggest douche on TV. If you can call having a show on a network most people couldn’t find in their listings if they had guns pointed to their heads actually “being on TV.”

  • sam

    These are GROWN MEN. It’s a sad day when my kids act more mature than these two idiots.

    • Molly

      Agree.. They should both be embarrassed.

  • Fez

    Feud?? Pshaw. This ain’t no feud. The Hatfields and the McCoys? Now that’s a real feud.

  • peggy boehm

    Below kindergarten level as I see it. Could they lower the bar any more??!!

  • Christina

    I prefer Piers Morgan… If Keith had nothing better to do, he should have kept his fingers to himself.

  • Rebecca Richard

    I don’t like either of them. and don’t watch them, both are jerks.

  • duh

    Olbermann spouts off so much invective in anything he says that I can’t watch him for more than 5 seconds at a time, and I don’t completely disagree with his positions either. I just don’t agree with his approach of taking such a hateful tone all of the time.

  • DGH

    Can we please stop with these “twitter” fueds or can at least stop reporting every time a god damn celebrity runs to twitter.

    • Clete

      I disagree, these two are not celebrities. Morons, yes.

      • cregis

        But geniuses (is that genii) compared to O’Donnell.
