Triggered Donald Trump grumbles ‘Turn the camera off!’ during Piers Morgan interview




Brian Niemietz, New York Daily News, Wed, April 20, 2022, 10:07 PM









A glistening and angry Donald Trump called journalist Piers Morgan “very dishonest” in an interview where the former president demands “turn the camera off” as he rises from his chair and walks away.  A clip of that interview is advertised as “the most explosive interview of the year” on the Twitter feed promoting “Piers Morgan Uncensored.”




The heavily edited bits and pieces posted online give little context to the full interview set to run Monday. Trump appears to become angered when Morgan, who has both praised and criticized the 45th president, states the fact that the 2020 presidential election was “free and fair” and President Biden won.

“Only a fool would think that,” Trump said.


Trump, who lost the election by 7 million votes, continues to push the lie that he won.


“You think I’m a fool?” Morgan asks.

“I do now,” said Trump, who claims he’s honest and tells Morgan that he is not.

“The former president is in denial” booms a narration voiced over the clip promoting Morgan’s interview. The 30-second teaser ends with Trump saying “turn the camera off,” then walking away saying “very dishonest.”

Morgan’s interview took place earlier this month at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. In an interview with Morgan BBC reporter Ros Atkins posted to Twitter Wednesday, Morgan pushed back when asked if he regrets interviews he’s done with Trump that were criticized as soft.

“I challenge Trump a lot in those interviews,” Morgan said.

He added that Trump was a friend of his dating back to 2008, when Morgan appeared on Trump’s game show “Celebrity Apprentice.” Morgan argued that he has since written “incendiary” articles about Trump and positive ones as well.

He added that aside from Trump’s fourth year in office, which Morgan called a “catastrophe,” the former president’s tenure was neither all good or all bad.

Someone on Quora asked “Why do some British people not like Donald Trump?” Nate White, an articulate and witty writer from England wrote the following response:
A few things spring to mind.
Trump lacks certain qualities which the British traditionally esteem.
For instance, he has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness, no humility, no honour and no grace – all qualities, funnily enough, with which his predecessor Mr. Obama was generously blessed.
So for us, the stark contrast does rather throw Trump’s limitations into embarrassingly sharp relief.
Plus, we like a laugh. And while Trump may be laughable, he has never once said anything wry, witty or even faintly amusing – not once, ever.
I don’t say that rhetorically, I mean it quite literally: not once, not ever. And that fact is particularly disturbing to the British sensibility – for us, to lack humour is almost inhuman.
But with Trump, it’s a fact. He doesn’t even seem to understand what a joke is – his idea of a joke is a crass comment, an illiterate insult, a casual act of cruelty.
Trump is a troll. And like all trolls, he is never funny and he never laughs; he only crows or jeers.
And scarily, he doesn’t just talk in crude, witless insults – he actually thinks in them. His mind is a simple bot-like algorithm of petty prejudices and knee-jerk nastiness.
There is never any under-layer of irony, complexity, nuance or depth. It’s all surface.
Some Americans might see this as refreshingly upfront.
Well, we don’t. We see it as having no inner world, no soul.
And in Britain we traditionally side with David, not Goliath. All our heroes are plucky underdogs: Robin Hood, Dick Whittington, Oliver Twist.
Trump is neither plucky, nor an underdog. He is the exact opposite of that.
He’s not even a spoiled rich-boy, or a greedy fat-cat.
He’s more a fat white slug. A Jabba the Hutt of privilege.
And worse, he is that most unforgivable of all things to the British: a bully.
That is, except when he is among bullies; then he suddenly transforms into a snivelling sidekick instead.
There are unspoken rules to this stuff – the Queensberry rules of basic decency – and he breaks them all. He punches downwards – which a gentleman should, would, could never do – and every blow he aims is below the belt. He particularly likes to kick the vulnerable or voiceless – and he kicks them when they are down.
So the fact that a significant minority – perhaps a third – of Americans look at what he does, listen to what he says, and then think ‘Yeah, he seems like my kind of guy’ is a matter of some confusion and no little distress to British people, given that:
• Americans are supposed to be nicer than us, and mostly are.
• You don’t need a particularly keen eye for detail to spot a few flaws in the man.
This last point is what especially confuses and dismays British people, and many other people too; his faults seem pretty bloody hard to miss.
After all, it’s impossible to read a single tweet, or hear him speak a sentence or two, without staring deep into the abyss. He turns being artless into an art form; he is a Picasso of pettiness; a Shakespeare of shit. His faults are fractal: even his flaws have flaws, and so on ad infinitum.
God knows there have always been stupid people in the world, and plenty of nasty people too. But rarely has stupidity been so nasty, or nastiness so stupid.
He makes Nixon look trustworthy and George W look smart.
In fact, if Frankenstein decided to make a monster assembled entirely from human flaws – he would make a Trump.
And a remorseful Doctor Frankenstein would clutch out big clumpfuls of hair and scream in anguish:
‘My God… what… have… I… created?
If being a twat was a TV show, Trump would be the boxed set.

And Mr. White shows exactly what makes me so fond of the British...a wicked sense of humor

This is why the GOP cancelled the debates. He can't handle the truth so he calls everyone else liars. Same old story and his base keeps falling for it.

What debates were cancelled? Got any documentation for that bizarre claim?
