Andrew Pierce described the PM as the “least racist Tory” – our 10 favourite takedowns
There may be shortages of lorry drivers, nurses and fruit pickers, but there’s always a Tory available to speak up for members of the government for such things as defending booing anti-racism action or having an affair with an aide during lockdown.
On Wednesday’s Good Morning Britain, the Daily Mail’s Andrew Pierce had a take on the prime minister so hot you could fry an egg on it.
Andrew Pierce: Boris Johnson is the least racist person in the Conservative party

“(H)e’s the least likely person to be a Tory and to be racist.”
What? No, sorry …WHAT??
These reactions very much reflect the consensus.
Boris Johnson is “probably the least likely person to be a Tory to be racist”
…says Andrew Pierce, in a glowing endorsement of the rank & file of the Conservative Party.

Andrew Pierce saying Boris Johnson is the “least racist Tory” is quite some take. Will we overlook the comments about letterboxes, piccaninnies & watermelon smiles then?🙄 This Tory party are rancid & have empowered the racist scum to think it’s ok to post what they like #GMB

I'm not sure Andrew Pierce is the best judge of what is or is not racist. pic.twitter.com/lMHQEgkTtp

Andrew Pierce will never admit he’s backed the wrong donkey.
He maintains his stance that Boris Johnson isn’t racist.

Actor David Harewood had this reaction to the conversation.
Finally… racism is part of our national conversation. Maybe you can stop telling me over and over again that it doesn't exist now. https://t.co/reHIzh5MGd
