British journalist and former CNN host Piers Morgan says liberal, Trump-hating celebrities are out of touch with the American people about the president, and are blind to his accomplishments.

Writing in London's Daily Mail, he noted that a CBS poll taken minutes after Trump's Tuesday night address showed that 75 percent of Americans approved of the speech, including 72 percent of Independents and 43 percent of Democrats.

"The stats don't lie," Morgan wrote, adding later that, "Trump's America Dream is very rapidly becoming the Democratic nightmare."

Noting that ratings plunged to a record low for Sunday night's Grammy awards show — "a marathon political rally of epically dreary proportions" — he wrote: "Americans are sick and tired of entertainers preaching about politics at awards shows, particularly when they're all preaching from the same liberal Trump-loathing handbook."

He then blasted celebs ranging from comedian Sarah Silverman to Jessica Chastain and Jim Carrey, who raged against the speech in a series of tweets.

And Andy Lassner, producer of "The Ellen Show" obscenely tweeted that "Saturday Night Live" would have a hard time making the SOTU "any more [expletive] ridiculous than it already is."

Morgan wrote: "But it turned out the vast majority of Americans DIDN'T agree with them, which suggests they're no longer listening to what celebrities say about politics or Donald Trump.

"It's hard not to agree with White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders when she said, 'I think if Americans cared what celebrities thought then Hillary would be president, but they clearly don't.'"

Morgan concluded that the celebrity Trump-bashers would never give him credit for anything, including a soaring economy, more jobs and the tax cut legislation.

"What they don't seem to understand is that the American people are beginning to calm down about President Trump, understand him better, accept him for what he is —good and bad —and appreciate some of the good stuff he is doing."
