President Donald Trump sat down with former British tabloid journalist Piers Morgan in what appeared from the teaser to be an exceptionally hostile interview. Watch:
When Morgan says to his face that ‘you misplaced,’ Donald Trump says ‘solely a idiot would consider that.’ When Piers Morgan asks him if he believed he was a idiot, Trump doubled down on the insult.
“Solely a idiot would suppose that,” Trump tells Morgan.
“You suppose I’m a idiot?” Morgan requested.
“I do now, sure,” Trump shot again.
On the finish of the video, it seems that Donald Trump ‘storms out,’ which the Hate Trump media picked up and ran with.

Budowich alleged that the present’s producers deceptively edited the video by splicing the sound of Trump saying “flip the digicam off” to make it falsely seem as if he made the assertion whereas he was rising in anger.
As for Trump’s saying “very misleading,” he made the remark after a pissed off Budowich known as out Morgan for dragging out the interview and falsely and repeatedly saying he had one final query, solely to ask extra.
Trump had anticipated the interview to final 20 minutes, Budowich mentioned, however it stretched on for greater than an hour. Towards the tip, Budowich known as for the final query, however the audio seems to indicate that Morgan requested a number of extra, together with one associated to “Superstar Apprentice.”
