Leave it to the gun-hating liberal wanker Piers Morgan to try to throw some sarcastic jab in an attempt to diminish an American Olympian’s amazing achievement.
Hiding behind his keyboard, Morgan responded to 19-year-old Ginny Thrasher’s gold medal win in a Tweet that read:
LEAST SURPRISING BREAKING NEWS EVER: America's 1st Olympic Gold Medal is for Shooting. #Thrasher

Wow, nice attempt at trying to make light of such an awesome accomplishment, especially for a girl of her age!
But you know how it is being part of a team – when one of you is attacked, everybody clears the bench to defend them.
And somehow, I’m pretty sure Piers wasn’t expecting a response from the U.S. Shooting Team.
Thanks for trolling. Realize it was a pellet gun, she defeated heavily favored Chinese, & 6 proud @GBShooting reps are in Rio 2
