Piers Morgan Defends Donald Trump: “Breath Of Fresh Air,” Should Never Apologize For Inflammatory Comments
Donald Trump still has Piers Morgan in his corner. The former “Celebrity Apprentice” winner penned a new column on Tuesday arguing that his one-time boss shouldn’t apologize for his inflammatory comments.
Morgan and Trump have remained pals since the British journalist’s 2008 season on the NBC competition, and, as Gossip Cop reported, he appeared as a “Celebrity Apprentice” guest judge earlier this year. Morgan, now writing for the Daily Mail as an editor at large, insists he’s “not an apologist for Trump,” even though he’s come to the mogul’s many times defense in the past. And this time, Morgan is showing support for Trump’s presidential campaign.
Though he acknowledges the offensiveness of Trump’s comments about Latinos and, most recently, John McCain, Morgan writes, “It’s frankly a breath of fresh air in this ever more timid, turgid PC world of ours to see a political figure speak his mind, even at the risk of offending people, and brush off the inevitable indignant clamour for slavering apologies.” And, noting Trump’s success in GOP polls, the former CNN host declares, “A lot of Americans love the way he speaks, behaves and takes his enemies down. And they especially like the way he never says sorry. For anything.”
“Whether you agree with Trump or not, it’s hard not to admire his resolute strength and resilience under colossal fire,” says Morgan, who is returning to “America’s Got Talent” as a guest judge this season. He adds, “I’m sorry, but I’m glad Donald Trump never says sorry.”
Morgan says he’s “enjoying” all the hysteria surrounding Trump’s campaign, and points out, “You can mock him, taunt him, berate him, but you can’t ignore him.” So, does Morgan think Trump will go all the way? “Whether he can win the GOP nomination or not remains to be seen, but I’d never bet against him,” he says.
As Gossip Cop reported, another “Celebrity Apprentice” winner, Arsenio Hall, has spoken out against Trump. He tweeted last month, “Now I don’t feel so good about winning Celeb Apprentice. It’s like winning a dog show, judged by Michael Vick.” Tell us who YOU agree with in the comments below.
