Piers Morgan, former CNN host and current “Good Morning Britain” anchor, blasted protesters demonstrating President Donald Trump’s visit to the U.K.

Trump arrived in England Monday for a state visit to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day. You can read more about the visit here.

During Monday’s broadcast of “Good Morning Britain,” Morgan spoke out against the hundreds of thousands of protesters across London, calling them “disrespectful” and the protests unnecessary.

“I think, actually, indeed, they … are a little bit disrespectful to be waving baby balloons all around the place at the President of the United States,” he explained. “When we needed the Americans in World War II, they were there for us.”

“And if our response [to that country] is to have bigger protests against the leader of United States, than it ever was against the leader of Saudi Arabia … or China … or Russia … There’s something a bit warped about our values,” Morgan said.

“Is Trump really worse than Putin or King Salman?” he later asked during another portion of the show.

“Americans fought and died alongside us on D-Day,” he added.

Trump’s visit coincides with the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

More than 20,000 police officers are expected to be stationed at more than 20 locations across the U.K. during the president’s visit. The Daily Mail reports that the patrolling effort will cost about $23 million.

The outlet also reports that protesters plan to pilot a 20-foot blimp depicting Trump as an “angry baby,” as well as deploy at 16-foot robot featuring the likeness of the U.S. president sitting on a gold toilet.

According to the Sun, “The main mass demonstration is set to take place outside Buckingham Palace [on Monday] from 5.30pm when the president will be enjoying a banquet with the Queen.”

    Thank you, Piers Morgan, for your comments. Sadly, too many people are ignorant of history that allows them the opportunity to speak so freely although they are too ignorant to understand.

      You are correct there Margery. I think that is exactly the problem. Younger people today do not remember the war years. They were dreadful. Because these people do not value what we have today, it may soon be taken from us. I think it would be a good idea to have some films about the second world war. Give the young people today a taste of it.

      Its because they don’t teach true history in schools anymore and ignorant liberals are all over the world just like the radical Muslims have infiltrated every country around the world and even infiltrated government which i believe is the biggest mistake the American government has let happen you only have to look what that moron mayor has done to London its starting to look more like a Muslim country everyday the teaching of history has also been changed here in Australia as well and its wrong schools have been turned into political tools for liberalism

      They are not protesting against the States. It’s Trump they are protesting and Trump wasn’t the President then

    Having lived in England for several years, I must tell you, in the younger generation there are many Socialist and Communist in England. There are two classes of them. The children of the wealthy that have never worked a day in their life so have never faced any hardships and the ones that have been raised off the dole and want every thing handed to them. Much like the younger ones coming up in America that think they are entitled to everything.

      Agree Rebecca. The level of sheer ignorance of history displayed by the younger generation today is appalling.

    THANK YOU, Piers. I do not often have the chance to agree …with several of your view points, but on THIS ONE…I stand with you. ….Just like my fellow Americans did long ago in WWII, and D-Day.

    It really ticks me off when Canadians, Brits and Aussies think they know it all about Americans and our politics. Clean up your own countries and leave us alone. I never disrespect any of their leaders. And it’s nice to agree with Piers Morgan for a change.

    This is what CNN, BBC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, and ABC has done to the world, especially CNN. It has turned them all into a bunch of leftist robots. The greatest of all of this is that TRUMP is going to smash in 2020.

    Dear Piers-

    Thank you, but it is not just the British that have forgotten, the Left in America have also done so. It was the Americans that saved the world from the Nazi’s in WWII, but you would never know it in America these days (either). The Left has infiltrated our Country, and our Education system and the media have dumbed down our citizens… The enemy lies within, and it is the socialist democrat party.

    Who was that disrespectful women next to Piers? She tried many times to interrupt him and talk over him, that is rude and crass.

    Guess these traitors love having their countries turned upside down again like they were back in the day. If they like these migrants and the socialist government better I like to send all of the migrants coming here to those countries. These people are so much in the dark they rather have a globalists dictator like the mayor controlling them they be looking like Venezuela soon enough
