Donald Trump channels Piers Morgan and storms out of interview after branding him a 'fool'
The 'former president in denial' stormed out of his interview with Morgan
If anyone can get Donald Trump to throw a hissy fit and walk off set, it would be Piers Morgan - a man who knows a thing or two about running out of live broadcasts.
Former president Trump stormed off during a world exclusive interview with Morgan for the host's new TV show, Uncensored.
He also called Morgan dishonest and a "fool" before refusing to take part and shouting for the crew to "turn the camera off".
Already being called the most "explosive" interview of the year, chaos ensued during the chat which will be screened as the first episode of Piers Morgan Uncensored which is due to debut on TalkTV on Monday April 25 at 8pm.

Previously mates, Trump and Morgan butted heads when the topic of the US presidential elections came up.
During the official teaser, viewers can hear Trump tell the former Good Morning Britain host: "Okay Piers I'm ready," as the voiceover calls him a "former president in denial".
Then it gets messy, as the pair refuse to shut up and resort to talking over each other.
Trump tells Morgan: "You’re not real. You’re a fake," to which Morgan replies: "No, I’m just brutally honest."
The clip sees Trump tell the controversial journalist: "I'm a very honest man, much more honest with you," in the interview dubbed by the show as 'Morgan vs Trump'.
Ending their back and forth, Trump tells Morgan: "Let's finish up the interview. Turn the camera off. Very dishonest."
Describing the experience in a Thursday column for The Post, Morgan revealed he also told the former president that he blamed Trump’s refusal to admit defeat for the deadly Capitol riot on January 6, 2021.
“Then you’re a fool! And you haven’t studied,” Trump responded, according to Morgan.
Morgan claims that Trump called him a fool six more times during the interview.
The show will see Morgan making his hosting comeback more than a year after he left Good Morning Britain in an incident that saw him also storm off live on air during a row with co-star Alex Beresford.
What goes around comes around.
