At the moment, the White House petition to deport CNN’s Piers Morgan has 69,548 signatures – largely thanks to the Drudge Report linking directly to the petition page.

“British Citizen and CNN television host Piers Morgan is engaged in a hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution by targeting the Second Amendment,” the petition reads. “We demand that Mr. Morgan be deported immediately for his effort to undermine the Bill of Rights and for exploiting his position as a national network television host to stage attacks against the rights of American citizens.”

“Merry Christmas!” Morgan wrote on Twitter yesterday. “Even to those who want me deported.”
