Piers Morgan tried to take down Mick Lynch with a Thunderbirds puppet and was owned into next week
As you can’t fail to have noticed by now, rail union boss Mick Lynch has been quietly impressing everyone with his media appearances during the rail strike.

Well done to Mick Lynch for his handling of this line of questioning. He could see what #KayBurley was trying to do. I could see what Kay Burley was trying to do. And he wasn’t having any of it.

And we mention him again because he did this to Piers Morgan a few days back – highlighted by @aljwhite over on Twitter – and it might be our favourite Mick Lynch moment yet.
Morgan was obviously excited to have spotted that Lynch’s profile picture on Facebook is Thunderbirds baddie The Hood and he ran with it, he really ran with it.
Straight into a brick wall, it turned out.
“Do you think I look like the most evil person in the world, Piers?”

And here are just some of the many things people were saying about it.
Watching a number of interviewers with daft questions trying get a rise out of RMT boss Mike Lynch, only to have their arse handed to them, has been a rare joy. And doubly so when Piers steps up with the Thunderbirds…pic.twitter.com/QeA88S5oPY

Our expectations for Piers were on the floor but Mick Lynch having to interrupt to tell him that hood from thunderbirds isn’t the most evil man in the world and is in fact a pupped made from vinyl, is another level

Missed this one yesterday. @piersmorgan spends two minutes asking Mick Lynch why his Facebook profile picture is a character from the Thunderbirds (a puppet show from the 1960s).
This is while we face 10% inflation. Just crazy! pic.twitter.com/1nlTnrsRHg

It’s no wonder the star of Piers Morgan has crashed to earth in such spectacular fashion – from CNN anchor to host of a trash tabloid news show that literally no one is watching.
This is absolutely execrable “journalism” by anyone’s standards.

Instead of interrogating his principles or plan to protect his union members
He goes after his…Facebook profile pic

Not only is Talk TV not utterly ashamed of those two minutes, they cut them out and put them on social media as an example of the show. https://t.co/f5oKwFrPJB

This is so cringe, I think I’ve dislocated my jaw.

It’s all so embarrassing. They can’t wind him up, they can’t beat his points, and he’s one step ahead every time.
