Piers Morgan and Rudy Giuliani Trade Insults on TV
Check out this remarkable exchange between former America’s Got Talent judge Piers Morgan and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
The contentious conversation happened Tuesday morning on Good Morning Britain. It started off as a discussion about protests in America, but devolved into a shouting match, with both parties insulting each other. Piers called Giulini, unhinged and deranged while Giulini mocked Piers for his failed CNN talk show.
What set Giuliani off was Pierce criticizing President Donald Trump’s tweets in reaction to the unrest that followed the killing of unarmed black man George Floyd by the Minneapolis Police. Piers specifically brought up Trump’s controversial phrase, “When the looting starts, the shooting starts” which seems to condone a violent response to the looting that has accompanied some of the protests.
At one point, Giuliani was ready to take all his marbles and go home. But instead, he kept arguing with Piers, who stayed calm throughout the interaction.
You Sound Completely Barking Mad Piers calmly tells Giuliani
“You sound completely barking mad. Do you know that? You’ve lost the plot,” said Piers, adding, “it’s sad to see.”
“No, I don’t! You sound like a big liar!” responded Giuliani. “You’re the one who got thrown off of television here so you have ratings to worry about, too, so don’t tell me I’ve lost anything.”
“You keep going, Rudy,” said Piers, sitting back. Giuliani continued to rant, dropping the f-word that led to an immediate apology from Piers. A female co-host tried to end the interview and also apologized for the language. Unbelievably, Giuliani began shouting “What profanity did I use? What profanity did I use?” Finally, mercifully, the co-host ends the interview. Hm. Me thinks Rudes was doing a little morning drinking.
Piers Morgan Live ended its three-year run on CNN in 2014 after it failed to pull in high ratings. The host also appeared on Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice in 2008 and won. He sat on the America’s Got Talent panel from 2006-2011.
