Piers Morgan says he ‘doesn’t care’ what people say about him and insists he’s still friends with Donald Trump


PIERS Morgan wants everyone to know he “really doesn’t care” what you say about him.

The GMB host, 55, also insists that he is still friends with his mate Donald Trump, 74, despite his recent remarks about him.

Piers spilled the beans in an interview with GQ, after accepting their award for Personality Of The Year.

Speaking about the backlash he sometimes faces from the public over his controversial opinions, he told the magazine: “I don’t really care what people say about me.

“Honestly. I know people think I must do, but I really don’t. I just see it as a good chance to wage a new feud.”

Piers was very vocal about his pal Trump during the US election.

At one point he told the President to “suck it up and go”, after he refused to concede to Joe Biden.

During the GQ interview he spoke about the President, and insisted that despite this, they are still friends: “Well I think with Trump if I saw him, he’d probably be fine.

“You know I criticised him because he came out with this ridiculous notion we should be injecting ourselves with bleach.

“I wrote a column for the Mail and the headline was: ‘Shut the f**k up, Mr President. You’re bats**t crazy ideas will get people killed’, and he unfollowed me.

“With someone who divides opinion like a few I always try to be fair-minded with Trump, I think my job as a journalist is to be impartisan, with Trump I always try to be fair minded.”

Meanwhile, earlier this month Piers revealed how Trump was duped by somebody pretending to be the Good Morning Britain presenter for several minutes.

The prankster managed to be put through to Trump while he was onboard Air Force One – but the politician thankfully saw the funny side after he hung up.

Writing in his Daily Mail column, Piers explained: “He’d seen me talking about him on US breakfast TV show Fox And Friends, and thought it was time to bury the hatchet. He dropped an immediate bombshell.

“‘I actually got scammed by a fake Piers,’ Trump chuckled.

“‘SORRY?’ I exclaimed.

“‘Yeah, some guy rang pretending to be you when I was on Air Force One yesterday, and I actually spoke with him for a few minutes. He sure sounded like you. I guess we’ll soon be reading about it somewhere. A fake Piers, crazy!’

“Only Trump could find such a prank funny. Most world leaders would be horrified to be caught out like this.”

Piers also risked the wrath of Trump by retweeting claims of fraud and branding it “fake news” – and praising the new President.

He said: “Biden will be more naturally empathetic to people’s suffering than Trump’s been”, also lauding his winning speech as “brilliant” and the “best of Biden’s career”.
