Piers Morgan is brutal!
In the aftermath of the horrific terror attack in London, England on Saturday night, questions regarding why the perpetrators weren’t arrested before attack, and how these sorts of attacks can be prevented in the future are rightly being raised by citizens across the U.K.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan appeared on “Good Morning Britain,” with hosts Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan on Tuesday to speak about terrorism in Great Britain. As noted by Young Conservatives, Morgan utterly destroyed Khan with his pointed questions.
One question in particular revealed just how ignorant Khan is. “Where are the potential terrorists in England?” Morgan asked.
The question came after Khan admitted that of the roughly 400 jihadists who have returned from Syria and Iraq (that the government knows about), “just over half” of them are in London — a truly jaw-dropping number.
Morgan pressed Khan on this point, demanding to know why the police are not tracking these potential terrorists.
“Why can’t you instruct the police, why can’t you call (Metropolitan Police Chief) Cressida Dick right now, and say every one of those people that’s come back from a war zone, who’s in London, I want them followed?” Morgan asked Khan.
Khan avoided answering the question directly, throwing out excuses about budget cuts and how he can’t control what the police do.
“If the Met Police is being shrunk and reduced, they’ve got to prioritize and use their resources in a sensible, savvy way,” Khan said.
That comment really set off Morgan and with good reason.
“What could be a bigger priority than people coming back from a Syrian battlefield with intent to harm British citizens? Why is it not the number one priority?” he demanded.
“Why are these people just allowed to come back in the first place, and then the London mayor doesn’t appear to have a clue where any of them are? I mean, no disrespect to you, but where are they?” he continued.
Throughout the entire segment, Khan struggled to give any coherent explanation, and his response to Morgan’s question was no different.
“That’s one of the questions that obviously the police services are –,” he said before Morgan cut him off.
“But you’re the mayor! Sadiq, you’re the mayor of London,” Morgan exclaimed.
The Washington Times noted that the video of the exchange on YouTube had over 55,000 views in less than 24 hours. As of Thursday morning, it was up to 135,837 views.

Real Clear Politics noted that earlier in the interview, President Donald Trump came up, and Khan didn’t hesitate to attack Trump over the comments he’d made on the campaign trail.
Khan can’t give a solid answer about what he will do to protect his own citizens, but he is more than happy to launch into a verbal attack about Trump as a way of distracting from his own gross incompetence.
Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his "no reason to be alarmed" statement. MSM is working hard to sell it!

While Trump may be flawed, he is intent on creating policies to keep the American people safe. Protecting the people of London, however, seems to be the last thing on Khan’s mind.
