WATCH | On air, Morgan said, "Sorry that Ewan McGregor's not here. He couldn't bear the thought of being on the sofa with me because he doesn't agree with me about the women's march. ... As we know, actors' views are more important than anybody else's."

On the day of the march, Morgan said he was planning a "men's march" in protest.

He also criticized detractors of President Trump, calling them "demented."

And he bashed the march itself.

He quickly drew a lot of criticism for his tweets.
