Farage Sez Trump ‘Stitched Up’ By ‘Shameful’ Piers Morgan

According to Brexit leader Nigel Farage, Piers Morgan “tricked” Donald Trump by using “fake news” tactics and deceptively editing an interview with the former president.

In a trailer released for an interview British transatlantic TV personality and journalist Piers Morgan conducted with Trump for Rupert Murdoch’s new British television station TalkTV, the video appeared to show the former president storming off in anger. However, audio recorded by Trump’s team provided to Breitbart News contradicted the story told in the 30-second clip posted by Morgan.

In an article written in another Murdoch media company, The sun newspaper, Morgan hinted that “Mr Brexit” Nigel Farage had provided a dossier of negative comments Morgan had written in the British press about Trump, an accusation Farage confirmed on his YouTube channel Thursday morning.

Morgan, in his typical hyperbolic manner, claimed that Mr. Trump was “foaming at the mouth” as he read statements from the former Celebrity Apprentice winner, including that Trump had “turned into a monster” and should be removed from office. and barred from ever running for president again.

Nigel Farage, who has his own primetime TV slot on GB News in Britain – and will therefore be a competitor to Morgan’s new show – wondered if Donald Trump will ever be able to trust Morgan, or any other owned media company. is from Rupert Murdoch again, including Fox News.

A copy of the front page of . hold up The sunwhich read “Grumpy Trumpy,” Farage said it was an example of “fake news.”

†[Trump] is fully and utterly attached by Piers Morgan. It’s outrageous, it’s outrageous. I bet Rupert Murdoch is absolutely furious, why would Trump trust Fox News or any other Murdock media now,” Farage said.

Confirming that it was indeed he who provided the former president with the dossier of Morgan’s comments, Farage said: “I told him Morgan is bragging in the British media and telling everyone he is your friend that he has special privileged access, but behind your back he has been stitching you together for a long time if you do this interview here is the truth and i gave him a document.”

In a statement linking to the audio published by Breitbart News, the former president said of the interview teaser: “Piers Morgan, like the rest of the Fake News Media, illegally and deceptively attempted his long and tedious interview. edit with me.

“He wanted to make it look like I walked away during the interview when my 20-minute time limit passed by an hour. The good news is that the interview was recorded by us to keep him honest.”

In response to the statement, Morgan failed to address the allegations of misleading montage, with the TV host claiming that Mr. Trump was angry only because he questioned the former president’s claim of electoral fraud in the 2020 race.

Morgan eventually addressed the allegations in a response to Donald Trump Jr. That: is characterized the 30 second clip as “misleading and deceptive” and re-linked to the Breitbart audio.

“I learned all my promo skills from you on Celebrity Apprentice! There’s nothing misleading or deceptive about it, Don – your dad just got really annoyed when I told him I don’t believe the 2020 election was rigged or stolen. Other than that it was a great interview,” Morgan replied.

Piers Morgan has a checkered history in the media, from being fired from his role as left wing editor daily mirror over charges of phone hacking — a charge he denies — and later being fired from his prime-time slot on CNN after low ratings. Last year, he stormed off the air live and later quit his hosting role for Good Morning Britain due to an argument over Meghan Markle and Harry. His latest Murdoch-backed show will debut in the UK next week.
