I write in The Sun.Pierce referred to the sharp part of the interview, where the couple clashed over the results of the 2020 US presidential election.
Addressing Trump directly, he wrote: “You have reiterated in your statement that I am a fool if I really believe in these results.
“Well, I – like many senior Republicans from Mitch McConnell to Mike Pence – so I guess I have to identify myself, by your criteria, as a fool.
“This does not change my belief that you justly lost the 2020 election, and to date you have not provided any strong evidence to the contrary.
“Until you do, I kindly suggest you stop perpetuating such an absurd delusion that only makes you look like the most ferocious loser in the world and slightly insane.”

The 30-second clip shows the couple arguing over Trump’s allegations that the 2020 election was rigged, and the 57-year-old Morgan told him he “did not present strong evidence”.
