Former President Trump furiously stormed out of a sit-down interview with Piers Morgan when the television host told him he had lost the election.
In a thirty-second preview for his new Fox Nation show ‘Piers Morgan Uncensored,’ Trump, curtly tells Morgan ‘I’m a very honest man. Much more honest than you actually.’ ‘Really?’ Morgan replies.
‘It was a free and fair election. You lost,’ Morgan says in another moment. ‘Only a fool would think that,’ Trump, who appears to be glistening with sweat, shoots back. ‘I do now, yeah.’
‘I don’t think you’re real,’ Trump tells Morgan.
The interview came to an abrupt end when Trump ordered ‘turn the cameras off’ as he got out of his chair and walked off. ‘Very dishonest,’ he muttered.
The full interview will air on the premier of ‘Piers Morgan Uncensored’ on April 25 and will be played on Fox Nation, Talk TV in the UK, and Sky News Australia.

Morgan has said that he and Trump have an almost 15-year friendship starting when Morgan won Celebrity Apprentice in 2008.
Morgan revealed in an op-ed for the New York Post that one hour before the interview was scheduled, someone had sent Trump a list of quotes where Morgan had been sharply critical of the former president.
He said that Trump called him into his office ahead of the interview and asked ‘What the f*** is this?’ Trump rattled off a few of the attacks, lifted from op-eds and TV appearances by Morgan.
‘Trump’s a supreme narcissist,’ ‘He’s now acting like a Mafia mob boss,’ and ‘And all because Donald’s stupendous ego couldn’t accept losing and sent him nuts,’ were a few of the quotes.
‘I thought we were friends?’ Trump reportedly shouted. ‘This is so disloyal! After all I’ve done for you? Why would you say all this about me?’
Morgan said that to calm Trump down, he asked him about the hole-in-one he purported to have gotten recently, and the former president begrudgingly agreed to still sit for the interview.
But throughout the 75-minute interview, Morgan says Trump called him a ‘fool’ seven times, in between dubbing Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell ‘stupid and his former Vice President Mike Pence ‘foolish and weak,’ all for not buying into his election fraud claims.
When Morgan told Trump he hadn’t produced any evidence of widespread voter fraud and blamed his refusal to admit defeat for the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, Trump reportedly told Morgan: ‘Then you’re a FOOL! And you haven’t studied!’
Trump told Morgan the document containing a list of negative quotes came from London, and Morgan implied he believes it came from former Brexit Leader Nigel Farage, who now works as a host at rival UK network GB News.
Trump had initially tried to end the interview by declaring ‘That’s it!’ but when Morgan suggested they discuss his hole-in-one, he sat back down. After bragging of the supposed golf game, Trump stood up with a ‘hateful’ look and barked at the crew to turn the cameras off.

Morgan and Trump have been friends for nearly 15 years
Trump and Morgan have had an on-and-off friendship that has rolled with the tides of Morgan’s public criticisms and praises of the former president. In April 2020, Trump unfollowed Morgan on Twitter after he wrote a column for DailyMail.com telling him to ‘Shut the f*ck up Mr President.’
In another DailyMail.com column Morgan said that ‘Shameful would-be mob boss Don Trumpone needs to be ”whacked’ by decent Republicans’ over his call with Georgia Sec. of State Brad Raffensberger where the former president asked him to ‘find’ 11,780 votes, or the number he needed to win Georgia.
Trump has shown no signs of giving up on election fraud claims, still claiming the election was ‘rigged’ and ‘stolen’ in rallies across the country as he looks to drum up support for both himself and the 103 candidates he has endorsed for Senate, House and state governorships so far.
Trump yanked back his endorsement of Alabama GOP Rep. Mo Brooks for the Senate seat after the Republican suggested the country move on from the 2020 race.
‘Mo Brooks of Alabama made a horrible mistake recently when he went ‘woke’ and stated, referring to the 2020 Presidential Election Scam, ‘Put that behind you, put that behind you,’ despite the fact that the Election was rife with fraud and irregularities,’ Trump said.
Trump claimed Brooks tanked a ’44-point lead’ after he hired new campaign staff who ‘brilliantly’ told him to ‘stop talking about the 2020 election.’
