Piers Morgan, a British journalist who is known for fighting with J.K. Rowling online and making many, many other ridiculous comments, just got owned on television . . . by his cohost, no less. On the show Good Morning Britain, Morgan complained about people who talk too much about politics. Susanna Reid, his counterpart on the show, just couldn’t hold back her thoughts when it came to Morgan’s apparent lack of self-awareness.
In a clip of the moment on June 28, Morgan first says, “I get annoyed about people banging on about politics on Facebook.” He goes on a bit more of a rant, until Reid says, “I know exactly what you mean. When someone keeps going on and on and you just need respite and a break and you just wish you could defriend them. But you’re just forced every day to listen to their views. I know exactly how you feel.” Watch the glorious moment ahead.

The internet couldn’t conceal its happiness over seeing Morgan get owned so badly on live TV.

I have no words because language hasn’t evolved far enough to describe this level of destruction https://t.co/TDWWMlYE4K

Some pointed out that it’s not Reid’s first moment of disdain for Morgan.

One person can’t wait to see what the future will possibly bring us in this saga.
One of these days Susanna Reid is going to full on punch Piers Morgan on TV & it’s going to be the most entertaining thing ever https://t.co/Xw46bBfM8h

Reid herself appears to have zero regrets as she revels in the moment.
