    Piers reignites feud with GMB’s Alex Beresford

    FORMER US president Donald Trump has torn into Good Morning Britain weatherman Alex Beresford.

    The 75-year-old slammed Laura Tobin's fill-in as a "stiff" in an explosive interview with Piers Morgan on TalkTV.

    Trump delivered his damning verdict about Piers' dramatic fallout with Alex, 41, which led him to walk off set.

    He said on Piers Morgan: Uncensored: "I think you overreacted by the way.

    "I mean the guy was a stiff. You didn't have to do that.

    "You made it about him. He probably got a nice raise from that."

    Reigniting his feud with the weather presenter, Piers told viewers: "He's not wrong" after the clip played out.

    Alex was noticeably absent from ITV today as Piers made his return to appear on Lorraine to promote his new show.

    And 57-year-old Piers Morgan took the opportunity to make a dig about his former colleague as he set the record straight about storming out of the GMB studio in March 2021.

    Refusing to name the ITV weatherman, Piers said this morning: "I wasn't too sure how I'd respond if I stayed there listening to that idiot giving me his two pennies' worth."

    Piers returned moments later to finish presenting the show after taking a "time out".

    Piers Morgan ‘intimidated’ by Trump (2/2)

    And, on the former President's body language, Darren Stanton continued to say: “I assessed Donald Trump‘s body language way back in 2016 for the US primary presidential race and his body language appears to have remained consistent with the baseline that I assessed back then.

    “He’s obviously a very loud man but very rarely does he make gestures that do not remain consistent with his belief system and body language as a behaviour will always remain consistent with what we truly believe or what we are thinking.

    “I think the interview lacked rapport, Trump was his trademark self in terms of being outspoken on many topics.

    Piers Morgan 'intimidated' by Trump (1/2)

    A body language expert has commented on Piers Mogan's interview with Donald Trump last night, and shared that Morgan seemed 'intimidated' by his former friend and left a 'little unconfident'.

    Body language expert Darren Stanton also shared that Trump's body language changed suddenly when questioned by Morgan on his authenticity, indicating he 'cares deeply' about how he is perceived.

    Speaking on behalf of Slingo, Darren said:

    “We are very used to seeing an overpowering and loud Piers Morgan speak to guests during an interview, however, he lacked his normal verbosity when interviewing Trump. While still a confident seasoned broadcaster, I felt he was slightly intimidated by Trump, after all he is a monster of a man in terms of his size and position, so maybe the year away from broadcasting could have potentially left Morgan a little unconfident.

    “He did not seem to display a lot of the gestures he typically does, principally one called the axe. If you imagine your hand has its fingers together and is outstretched to simulate an axe. Morgan is often seen to make this power gesture to interviewees to communicate he is in charge, however, we did not see that gesture from him at all during the course of the Trump interview. This means he knew that he could not push Trump in a direction he did not want to go as he may potentially do with other celebrities.”

    Piers Morgan's ‘trigger warning’ to ‘woke snowflakes’

    PIERS Morgan issued an "urgent trigger warning" to "woke snowflakes" as he launched his Uncensored show on TalkTV last night.

    The fiery presenter, 57, told the “permanently offended” they are not going to enjoy his show as he pledged to stand up for free speech. 

    He also declared his unfiltered show will be a "no-cancel zone" as it pushes back against cancel culture.

    And it aired a sensational exclusive interview with Donald Trump, in which the former US President called Piers a "fool".

    Piers, referencing Nelson Mandela as he launched his show last night, said: "It's been a long walk to freedom of speech."

    He added: "I want to issue an urgent trigger warning for all ultra sensitive, permanently offended woke snowflakes who may have accidentally tuned into this show.

    "You are not going to enjoy my show. It's going to really annoy you.

    "It may even evoke trauma because I'm going to be celebrating the one thing you can't abide: free speech.

    "And that's real free speech. Not your kind of free speech where only your opinions are allowed and anyone with a different opinion has to be shamed, abused and cancelled, their careers and reputations destroyed. 

    "Nobody's getting cancelled on Piers Morgan Uncensored. This is a no-cancel zone.

    "No opinion will be silenced, no debate will be off limits. No BS will be tolerated. And yes, if it's alright with you, we are going to enjoy ourselves."

    Trump claims he ‘threatened Putin like he’s never been threatened before’

    DONALD Trump has claimed that during his administration, he threatened Russian President Vladimir Putin “like he’s never been threatened before”.

    Speaking to Piers Morgan on TalkTV, the former US President agreed when asked if Mr Putin was a genocidal monster.

    He also claimed that the conflict would’ve been avoided had he been in office.

    And when Mr Morgan asked what he had previously said to Mr Putin, he said: “I threatened him like he’s never been threatened before.

    “We have a war that would have never happened if I was president.”

    Mr Trump said he thought the war was “terrible”, adding: “We’re going to be ashamed at what we’ve done, or what we haven’t done to stop this catastrophe.

    “This is a catastrophe. This is in a way already a world war.”

    Asked to elaborate on how he would’ve dealt with Mr Putin, he added: “I would say we have far more nuclear weapons than you do, far more powerful than you and you can't use that word ever again.

    “You cannot use the nuclear word ever again. And if you do, we're going to have problems.”

    Piers will 'uncancel' Sharon Osbourne

    The second part of the interview, which features Trump walking offset, will air today from 8pm.

    As he closed the show, Piers vowed to "uncancel" Sharon Osbourne in an interview with her later this week.

    He said: "I will uncancel her so she can go back to where she belongs as the Queen of TV."

      Trump takes aim at Sussexes

      Mr Trump said he thinks Prince Harry is "whipped like no person I've ever seen", adding: "I'm not a fan of Meghan and I haven't been right from the beginning.

      "I think poor Harry's being led around by his knees. It will end and it will end bad.

      "I wonder if Harry's going to go back on his hands and knees."

      He also sensationally called for the Queen to strip Prince Harry and Meghan of their royal titles in the wide-ranging world exclusive interview.

      Trump could return

      The New York Times reported that Musk reached an agreement with investment bankers at Morgan Stanley to loan him about $25billion to help finance the deal – the rest Musk would put up in cash.

      Musk's ownership could see changes to Twitter.

      This could even include the return of former President Donald Trump.

      He was notoriously banned from Twitter after the 2021 United States Capitol attack.

      However, Musk has been very vocal about freedom and speech and being 'anti-censorship'.

      According to Reuters, many Republicans are pleased with the Twitter deal.

      Piers Morgan's shock

      PIERS Morgan says he is shocked Donald Trump agreed to talk him for the launch of his new TalkTV show.

      During Piers' exclusive, no-holds-barred interview, the ex-President blasted Meghan & Harry and reflected on his term in the White House.

      But this morning the former GMB host said he was "surprised" Trump agreed to the interview after he was critical of the US president's final year in power.

      Morgan told Times Radio: "I was surprised he agreed to do the interview, because I was very critical of him during his final year of office."

      He continued: "I've been hammering him in columns repeatedly and on the airways over January 6.

      "So I was surprised, but he agreed. I went down to Palm Beach to Mar-a-Lago and we had it all set up.

      "And literally, about eight minutes before we started, I get a visitation from his people saying "this is a problem".

      Between 9pm-10pm each day on TalkTV the former GMB host will present his verdict on the day’s global events with an hour of debate and straight-talking interviews through his daily news show The Talk.

      Twitter in uproar over potential Trump return

      TWITTER's acceptance of Elon Musk's bid to buy the platform has Republican politicians leaning on the billionaire to reinstate former President Trump's account.

      Donald Trump's Twitter account was permanently banned as a consequence of his activity leading up to and during the storming of the Capitol on January 6, 2021.

      Social media is as divided as the country itself on the prospect of Donald Trump returning to Twitter.

      Progressive users and advocates are dreading the notion of the former President returning to the daily Twitter cycle, threatening to leave the platform.

      Meanwhile, conservative supporters are anxious to see Trump back in action.

      The House Republican Conference posted a tweet nudging Musk to "free @realDonaldTrump" and unban the former President's account.

      "I think this deal looks like it's good for the shareholders; second, it's good for free speech, it's good for the First Amendment," Representative Jim Jordan, a House Republican Conference Member, told Fox News.

      Trump says the scenes in Ukraine are 'terrible'

      Trump described the scenes witnessed in Ukraine in recent weeks as "terrible", and agreed with Morgan's assertion that Vladimir Putin is an "evil, genocidal monster".

      "What's happening is horrible," he said. "When I see all the death, all the destruction… it's such a pointless war."

      Returning to his baseless claim that the 2020 presidential election was "stolen" by the Democrats, he added: "If our election wasn't rigged, you would have had nobody dead [sic]."

      Trump asserted that he had given "strong" warnings while in office to both President Putin and China's leader Xi Jinping about possible invasions of Ukraine and Taiwan respectively.

      Donald Trump warns Piers Morgan we are heading for NUCLEAR war

      DONALD Trump has warned that if the world is not careful, we will be heading for a nuclear war.

      The former US president, speaking to Piers Morgan on his flagship show on Talk TV, also claimed the war with Ukraine "would have never happened" if he was still Commander in Chief.

      Talking about the current crop of leaders, he said: "Our leaders are not smart… if they're not smart you're going to end up in a nuclear war."

      Referring to the word nuclear as the "n-word", Trump said: "He [Vladimir Putin] uses the n-word, the nuclear word all the time.

      "That's a no-no, you're not supposed to do that. He uses it on a daily basis. And everybody's so afraid… and as they're afraid, he uses it more and more."

      He accused his successor Joe Biden of "kowtowing" to Russia and said he would have been stronger in standing up to Putin.
