It’s a big news day: the much-discussed Nunes memo on FBI surveillance abuses was released and so was the White House’s similarly controversial Nuclear Posture Review. So why is everyone on Twitter talking about journalist Piers Morgan eating President Donald Trump’s ass?

It's all thanks to BBC Two, which ran a four-minute segment where they mocked Morgan's Sunday interview with Trump as a puff piece when Morgan had the opportunity to ask hard-hitting questions. "Let's look at the staging of the interview," comedienne/host Rachel Parris joked. "Now, in a typical robust political interview… the two opponents face off with several meters between them, no furniture blocking their path, there's nowhere to hide."

"Whereas in the Trump interview, the staging hinted at a greater intimacy between the two men," she said before turning to the picture of Morgan nose-deep in Trump's sizable orange aft-end.

​Morgan was less than amused about the BBC using a photo of him sniffing the callipygian (an adjective that means "has a great butt"- use it all the time!) president's rear. "The BBC thinks this is OK to broadcast. But if it depicted high profile women, there would be outrage," he tweeted.

"If the BBC broadcast an image like this after a female journalist interviewed @theresa_may — all hell would break loose & people would be fired. Gender equality shouldn't just apply to pay — should it?" he tweeted again an hour later, once again alongside the photo.

Then he tweeted it for a third time. "So we can't have #gridgirls or #walkongirls because the imagery is 'demeaning'. But the publicly-funded BBC can broadcast this about 2 men?"

He then retweeted other tweets of the image a bunch, too.

Morgan insisted that he wasn't upset, he was just repeatedly tweeting out a picture of him rimming the POTUS because he disliked the apparent double standard of the BBC. When a Twitter user pointed out to him that he was spreading the picture to far more people than would have seen it ordinarily, Morgan pointed out the BBC 2's large audience, but also insisted sharing it was the point.

​One would think anyone depicted worshipping Trump's generous curves would want as few people as possible to know about it, not more. But then, most people aren't famed interviewer and journalist Piers Morgan.

Morgan then got into it with director Paul Feig, responsible for an abomination even greater than the picture of Morgan eating Trump's ass: the "Ghostbusters" remake.

​​Speaking of horrifying movies, Tom Six, director of the "Human Centipede" trilogy, has yet to comment on the photo.

Twitter, at least, had fun with the picture and Morgan's, uh, unorthodox response to it. Sputnik will leave the low-hanging "he made an ass of himself" joke to other, less distinguished outlets.
