Piers Morgan slams Katie Porter for attacking Riley Gaines

Piers Morgan slammed Rep. Katie Porter for attacking All-American swimmer, Riley Gaines, calling for a new category to be made for trans athletes.

Piers Morgan slammed Rep. Katie Porter for attacking All-American swimmer, Riley Gaines, calling for a new category to be made for trans athletes.

The pair appeared Friday night on ‘Real Time with Bill Maher,’ and the conversation pivoted to Gaines late in the episode, Maher also commenting that ‘wokeness’ was offsetting strides made in female athletics.

Gaines, a former D1 swimmer, was attacked and harassed by a mob at San Francisco State University while speaking out in support of women’s rights.

California congresswoman Porter implied that Gaines had used the incident as a way to ‘get likes and clicks’ – an opinion Morgan was quick to oppose.

‘You should be able to have a civil debate, nobody, including Riley Gaines – who I disagree with strongly should,’ said Porter who was interrupted at that point by Morgan.

‘What do you disagree with, out of interest,’ he asks. 

‘I think that it should be up to sporting bodies to make decisions about ..’ she continues before Morgan again asks ‘What is it she’s said that’s actually wrong.’

‘I think that she’s tried to turn this – you know how we’ve talked about people becoming – using things to get likes and get clicks,’ she explains.

‘That’s not what she’s doing,’ said Morgan. ‘She’s not?’ responded Porter in shock.

‘All I’ve seen her do is stand up for women’s rights for fairness and equality,’ he said.

During the 2021-2022 NCAA women’s swimming season Lia Thomas sparked a growing debate over the fairness of transgender women competing against biological females.

She became the first transgender woman to win an Ivy League Championship and later an NCAA Championship in the 500 free.

Morgan cites this example and said: ‘[Gaines] competed against Lia Thomas and it was obviously unfair.’

‘Lia Thomas won one of the races in the NCAA championships by 50 seconds against a bunch of biological females who simply couldn’t keep up.

‘That can not be right, it can not be fair.’

Porter vehemently disagreed with the notion saying that it should be up to the sporting bodies to make decisions around fairness.

‘That is something, that I trust, our sporting bodies should be dealing with. And by the way, Riley is speaking up for herself and that is her prerogative and I respect her free speech.’

Morgan quickly took a swipe at the comment saying: ‘I think she’s speaking up for pretty much every female athlete in the world.’

At this point, host Bill Maher noted Title 9 brought forward in the early 70s.

In 1972, the Education Amendment Act was signed into law by former U.S. president Richard Nixon.

The law recognized education as an equal right for all but also included a clause prohibiting gender-based discrimination in sports programs, granting equal opportunity to both men and women to participate in sports.

In 1975, specific provisions to prevent gender-based discrimination in sports participation came into place, which also provided educational institutes with three years to fulfill the requirements of Title 9. 

Following this, in 1978, the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, mandated the provision of equal opportunities to men and women in all educational institutes.

Title 9 requires all educational institutions in the US to reward male and female athletes equally. 

Along with that, it also ensures the prevention of discrimination when it comes to accessing sports facilities, training centers, equipment, and other support provided to sport programs.

‘Wasn’t that the point of Title 9? Title 9 – in the early 70s – was something – It was a major event in feminism that we finally have this law that says that colleges, right and I think high schools too, but definitely colleges – women’s sports have to be equal to men’s sports so that women aren’t getting… and that’s what led to the WNBA and lots of other stuff.. This seems to be the opposite,’ said Maher.

‘It seems to be, so many instances I think, where wokeness is the opposite of what I grew up as liberalism.

‘Liberalism was, lets give the women an equal shot, this is like, let’s put a male in the swimming pool with women I don’t get it.’

Morgan goes on to add, that trans athletes are the one’s losing out in the debate.

‘Meanwhile trans people, who genuinely want to compete in athletics and swimming or whatever it may be, they’re the ones suffering here,’ he said. 

‘They need to be found a way to compete fairly and justly.’

‘So then what’s your answer then,’ Porter questioned.

‘I think one of two answers: They either compete against their biological sex – as many of them did before – or you create an entirely new category for transgender athletes,’ Morgan replied. 

‘Then they’re able to compete fairly. But what you cannot do is continue to let more and more trans athletes start decimating women’s records. In some cases irrevocably.’

Gaines tweeted after the show to Porter saying: ‘Hey @RepKatiePorter I’m not speaking up for myself…I’m done playing sports. 

‘I’m not fighting for me. I’m actually supposed to be in dental school this year. 

‘But I’ve changed my life plans because I see what’s at stake if someone doesn’t fight for the present and next generation.’

Riley Gaines:

I raced against Thomas in March 2022 in the 200 freestyle. We tied. We finished at the exact same moment down to 100ths of a second.

But after we stepped down from the awards podium, an NCAA official looked at both Thomas and me and said, ‘Great job, you tied. But we don’t account for ties. So, the trophy goes to Lia.’

That struck me as strange, so I questioned him. As it turns out, that may have been the first time anyone had ever questioned why Thomas received special treatment. And the official’s answer shocked me.

He said that Thomas would hold the trophy for picture purposes.

That’s when I realized that the NCAA no longer valued everything that I, my teammates and every other girl swimming that day had worked their entire lives to achieve. The goal was no longer excellence in women’s sport. The goal was virtue signaling on the backs of women.

That’s when I knew I had to speak out. I wanted to be part of a conversation about what is happening in women’s sports so that we can find a way to accommodate trans-identified athletes without marginalizing or discriminating against female athletes.

Unfortunately, it seems that the people pushing for trans-inclusion in the female sporting category are more interested in silencing and threatening their opponents than in engaging in dialogue. These radical activists would rather bully their way into women’s locker rooms and women’s competitions than look for a way to create equal opportunities for all. So much for good sportsmanship.

I am not afraid to confront bullies. But when I arrived at San Francisco State University, I expected that campus police would be there to ensure my safety. They were nowhere to be found.

PIERS MORGAN DESTROYS REP. KATIE PORTER OVER RILEY GAINES

Piers Morgan Destroys Rep. Katie Porter Over Riley Gaines – outkick

Piers Morgan wasn’t tolerating any nonsense about Riley Gaines from Congresswoman Katie Porter. They argued on Bill Maher’s show.

Piers Morgan wasn’t tolerating any nonsense about Riley Gaines from Congresswoman Katie Porter.

The pair appeared Friday night on “Real Time with Bill Maher,” and the conversation pivoted to Gaines late in the episode.

The former D1 swimmer was attacked and harassed by a mob at San Francisco State University while speaking out in support of women’s rights. Instead of everyone condemning the behavior of the unhinged mob, there has been a stunning amount of silence from the sports world and political leaders. Specifically, Nancy Pelosi ignored multiple requests for comment from OutKick.

Piers Morgan hammers Katie Porter over Riley Gaines remark.

Well, California Congresswoman took things a step further and essentially implied Riley Gaines is only speaking out because she wants attention.

“I think that what she has done is try to turn this — we talked about people becoming — using things to kind of get likes and get clicks,” Porter stated as she stumbled to come up with a good answer to Morgan asking what she disagreed with Gaines on.

That went over about as well as you’d expect, and Piers Morgan quickly hit back with, “That’s not what she’s doing…All I’ve seen her do is stand up for women’s rights to fairness and equality. She actually competed against Lia Thomas and it was obviously unfair.”

At one point during the exchange, Porter attempted to claim the former Kentucky star is only “speaking up for herself and that’s her prerogative.”

That’s when Morgan hit her with the knockout blow of, “I think she’s speaking up for pretty much every female athlete in the world.” He also suggested having transgender people compete against their biological sex or creating a new category for transgender people.

Morgan came out looking great against Katie Porter.

If you show that clip to 100 people, I think most rational people would say Piers Morgan came out the clear winner.

He asked a simple question: What has Riley Gaines specifically done that Katie Porter doesn’t agree with?

The California Congresswoman couldn’t answer. Instead, she just argued Gaines just wants attention. That’s simply not true.

Rep. Katie Porter scalded ex-husband’s scalp with potatoes: court divorce documents

Rep. Katie Porter scalded ex-husband’s scalp with potatoes: documents

The ex-husband of Rep. Katie Porter says the California Democrat engaged in frequent verbal abuse and threw “toys, books and other objects” at him during their marriage – and once poured scalding-hot mashed potatoes on his head once during a fight, according to newly released divorce records.

The former husband of Rep. Katie Porter said the California Democrat frequently abused him verbally and threw “toys, books and other objects” at him during their marriage — even pouring scalding-hot mashed potatoes on his head during a fight, according to divorce records.

Matthew Hoffman, who filed for divorce from Porter in 2013, said in a request for a restraining order dated April 30 of that year that he was “routinely” called a “f—ing idiot” and “f—ing incompetent” by his rage-prone spouse, who also shattered a glass coffee pot on their kitchen counter in March 2012 when she felt their house wasn’t clean enough.

“She would not let me have a cell phone because she said, ‘You’re too f—ing dumb to operate it,’” Hoffman said of Porter, 49, who has also been accused of ridiculing former members of her staff.

“When she gets angry, she will claw and scratch her arms and then say to me ‘Look what you made me do!’” Hoffman also said in the records, first obtained by DailyMail.com. “She regularly says that I am a bad parent in front of the kids … Recently the children began spitting at me and throwing their food at me, calling me ‘bad daddy.’”

In 2006, Hoffman said, Porter took issue with how Hoffman was preparing mashed potatoes for dinner, asking him: “Can’t you read the f—ing instructions!” Then, her ex-husband said, Porter raised a “ceramic bowl of steaming hot potatoes and dumped it on my head, burning my scalp.”

In response to Hoffman’s allegations, Porter, then a professor of bankruptcy law at the University of California, Irvine, in Orange County, claimed in her own request for a restraining order that her ex ordered her out of the house on April 24, 2013, and called her a “dumb bitch,” a “despicable person” and “f—ing evil” before adding that she should “rot in hell.”

According to Porter, Hoffman then raged at the couple’s son Luke, telling the child: “You have taken a bad situation and made it a thousand times worse.” Hoffman also allegedly punched a bathroom light switch until it shattered and threw a newspaper at her.

In her first congressional campaign, Porter referred to herself as a “victim of domestic violence” and her House biography touts her as “a single mom of three school-aged kids.”

“I don’t have a shady background,” she told HuffPost in May 2018. “I’m the most boring person in America. I’m a mom of three kids, I protected my family, I ended a marriage that was troubled.”

The third-term congresswoman is running against two other House Democrats — Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) — to replace Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), who announced in February she would not seek re-election.

Porter, a former Harvard law student and protégé of progressive Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), appeared on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” this week to tout her new memoir, “I Swear: Politics Is Messier Than My Minivan.”

The Orange County lawmaker may be best known for using props such as a whiteboard in committee hearings when grilling congressional witnesses — and even dressed as Batgirl on the day the House first voted to impeach President Donald Trump in 2019.

During the prolonged vote series that determined the next speaker of the House this past January, Porter could be seen in the chamber reading the self-help book “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck.”

In December, a Navy veteran who worked for Porter accused the congresswoman of dismissing sexual harassment allegations made by another staffer and cracking off-color jokes about race.

Sasha Georgiades, who worked for the Democrat for two years as a Wounded Warrior fellow, also said Porter harshly criticized her aides and appeared to be motivated by a desire for “fame” and “power.”
Georgiades told Reason magazine that Porter demoted her at the end of the fellowship for allegedly exposing the congresswoman to COVID-19.
