Piers Morgan was apparently offered a job interview with Donald Trump.
Morgan, who lost his last job after being accused of racism for criticizing Meghan Markle, is making his television comeback with a new show titled “Uncensored” on TalkTV, a network owned by Rupert Murdoch. He was able to get an interview with Trump as a way to kick off things. The promo shows that things went quite sour.
There are some heavy edits but you’ll see Morgan bring up the 2020 elections. Both men argued over the subject until the former president got up to leave the stage. I’ve got to say, purely as a piece of television promotion, this is pretty effective.

“I think I’m a very honest man … much more honest than you, actually,” Trump said at one point.
“Really?” Morgan asked.
“Yeah,” Trump responded.
Elsewhere, Morgan told Trump the 2020 vote “was a free and fair election. You lost.”
“Only a fool would think that,” Trump shot back.
“You think I’m a fool?” Morgan retorted.
“I do now, yeah,” Trump responded.
I’ve got a few thoughts on this.
In defense of Trump’s anger, anyone who suggests the 2020 election was, by definition, “free and fair,” is just stirring the pot and knows better. Piers Morgan is the one who knows best. A rash of changes to emergency voting laws, many of which were later found illegal across the country, completely altered the way the vote was cast and the number of voters who participated. It was unfair that the rules were changed at the last minute in favor of Democrats, regardless of whether there was fraud.
Beyond the debates on voting, the fact remains that both the mainstream media and social media have conspired in order to enforce censorship that would suppress any stories that might be detrimental to the Biden campaign. Hunter Biden is an example. While news media refused to publish it, Twitter and Facebook banned users from sharing it.
Again, to suggest the 2020 election was “free and fair” is farcical. Many forces worked together to try to win the election against Donald Trump. One doesn’t even have to believe a single illegal vote was cast to recognize and acknowledge that.
Still, I’m trying to figure out why Trump was doing an interview with Piers Morgan in the first place. I understand the thought that any media is good media, but that’s obviously not true for a politician as oversaturated as Donald Trump. He doesn’t need to spend his time with liberal hackers such as Morgan. This does not help him gain support to run for president in 2024. I’ve levied this same critique against other Republicans who go on networks like CNN and MSNBC. Stop giving the liberal media what they don’t deserve. They should be on the sidelines.
It is not a good idea to continue getting involved in discussions regarding the 2020 elections. While a variety of voting reform bills have been passed in red states, there’s nothing that can change what happened a year-and-a-half ago. I wish that weren’t so, but that’s the reality. People’s attention is currently on the destruction caused by the Democrat Party. People are looking for a way to be heard. Every Trump interview turning into a rehash of the 2020 election isn’t good for anyone. The former president should realize this and stop giving the media fodder.
Because they view 2020 as their only point of pressure, the left wishes that the 2020 election remains the main topic of conversation. There’s no reason to keep playing their game. Nothing would enrage the mainstream media more than if Trump responded to those questions by saying “I’m not here to talk about that, I’m here to talk about the future and how we are going to save this country.” Putting the focus on Biden and the Democrats will pay dividends going forward.
