Australian comedian Jim Jeffries told Piers Morgan to 'f**k off' when he said there was no Muslim ban
An Australian comedian told tv personality Piers Morgan to "f**k off" when he defended Donald Trump's immigration ban.
During a particularly heated segment on Real Time With Bill Maher, the host asked Piers if he still thought Hillary Clinton was the "lesser of two evils" and questioned Trump's White House appointments in his first few weeks in office.
Piers responded: "Calm down Bill, there is no Muslim ban..." before Jim Jeffries chimes in "Oh f**k off. It's a f***ing Muslim ban. He said there was a Muslim ban. There's a Muslim ban.
The rest of the exchange is here. And it's something.
PM: "This is the hysteria I'm talking about. 85% of the world is Muslim, they're allowed into the country."
JJ: "This is what you do Piers - you say, 'He hasn't done this, he hasn't done that, he's not going to do all these things'. Give him a f***ing chance mate. Hitler didn't kill the Jews on the first day. He worked up to it."
PM: "That is the exact ridiculous, hysterical, over the top nonsense that is making people like you look ridiculous."
JJ: "If people got hysterical in Germany right away..."
PM: "He's not he new Hitler."
That's when Maher makes this face.
JJ: "You just like that you won The Apprentice and you have a famous friend, mate. That's all you f***king like."
PM: "You're losing your audience because you're sounding unpleasant..."
That's when Jeffries interrupts and gives him the finger.

Yes, watching Piers Morgan being told to fuck off on live TV is *exactly* as satisfying as I'd always imagined. https://t.co/4FII8sYmIt— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) February 11, 2017
