Piers Morgan has welcomed the ‘incredible’ response to his exclusive interview with Donald Trump at Davos as Twitter erupted with comments about a bizarre cover on the Presidents water and claims he ‘got his hair from his mum’.
Plenty of people also took the chance to make memes mocking the President, with one Twitter user writing, ‘He’s right, most of the UK wants him to visit’, next to an image of a man being hit with a pie.
Morgan tweeted: ‘Incredible response to #TrumpMorgan… love him or hate him – and there’s no middle ground! – nobody in the world draws a bigger, more visceral reaction than Donald Trump.’
Twitters users were especially struck at seeing archive image of the President’s mother, Mary Trump, who had a similarly impressive bouffant

Paul Severn wrote: ‘Have always been fascinated with Trump’s hair, but his mother’s is far more impressive to be fair.’
Another user commented: ‘I see where he gets his hair! Left to him in his mother’s will!’
And ‘Hannah’ added: ‘OMG Trump has the same hair as his mother. I’m dead.’
Viewers were also fascinated by the President’s drinking habits, with several pointing out that the renowned germaphobe had a white cover on his glass of water.
A bemused Graeme Demianyk posted an image of the water with the caption : ‘Trump’s glass of water with paper cover #TrumpMorgan.’
And another view wrote: ‘He’s covered the top of his water glass with the paper coaster thing. That is proper paranoid. Does he think Piers is going to lace his drink?’
Usually mild-mannered Bake Off host Sue Perkins was rather more direct, firing off a x-rated tweet which read: ‘I’d rather d***** with a hedgehog than listen to another second of this circle-w*** #TrumpMorgan.’

Mr Trump’s claim to be ‘very popular’ in Britain was met with plenty of mocking memes
In the wide-ranging interview, Mr Trump was questioned over anger about the invitation extended to him by Prime Minister Theresa May on behalf of the Queen.
Mr Trump said: ‘I think I’m very popular in your country.’
Morgan interjects: ‘Let’s not be too hasty Mr President.’
Mr Trump went on: ‘I know but I believe that, I really do. I get so much fan mail from people in your country.
‘They love my sense of security, they love what I’m saying about many different things.
‘We get tremendous support from people in the UK.’
Asked about opposition to his state visit by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, Mr Trump is quick to say ‘I don’t know the man’.
Morgan tweeted: ‘Incredible response to #TrumpMorgan… love him or hate him – and there’s no middle ground! – nobody in the world draws a bigger, more visceral reaction than Donald Trump’
‘Claire Green Cakes’ was thrilled by the interview, but ‘Christopher’ mocked his views on global warming
As for calls to ban him from visiting the country, he added: ‘Well, that’s their problem – I could very nicely stay home.’
Mr Trump claimed Mrs May invited him to the UK twice this year during their meeting at the Swiss ski resort.
Downing Street did not confirm the Mail on Sunday’s claim that an informal visit in July would be followed by a state visit in October.
A Number 10 source said: ‘An invitation has been extended and accepted, and details will be set out in due course.’
