Former President Donald Trump has released audio footage that appears to expose Fox Nation host Piers Morgan as nothing but a sleazy liar.
The audio footage is from the end of an interview that Morgan conducted with Trump, and that’s set to air on Fox News’ Fox Nation next Monday.
Trump released the audio footage after the British interviewer published a 30-second teaser that made it seem like the interview had ended badly, with Trump seemingly yelling “turn the cameras off” and then storming off set at the end after the two had argued over the results of the 2020 presidential election.
Watch the teaser below:

Morgan also published an op-ed in the New York Post doubling down on this narrative.
“Incensed Trump tried to end things by declaring, ‘That’s it!’ before I reminded him that we hadn’t discussed his hole-in-one, which he then sat down again and did — briefly — before abruptly jumping to his feet, looking hateful, and barking at the shocked crew: ‘TURN THE CAMERAS OFF!’ Then he turned on his heel, and sloped angrily off through a side door, loudly muttering, ‘SO dishonest …,'” he claimed.
But the audio footage from the actual interview tells an entirely different story. It begins with Trump’s assistant or aide telling Morgan, “We’re an hour in, so we need to wrap [it up],” to which he replied by promising to ask just a “few quick questions.”
He then proceeded to ask an endless series of questions that Trump amicably responded to, but that his aide began to find increasingly annoying.

On more than one occasion, Morgan promises he’s about to ask his last question. The aide eventually snaps and says, “You’ve done the last question four times now, so I feel like you’re lying at this point.”
Trump agrees, calling Morgan “very dishonest,” but ultimately allows him to go ahead and ask one final question about his recent hole-in-one.
The interview finally concludes with Morgan telling Trump “congratulations” for the hole-in-one, and Trump saying “thank you.”
In a written statement released after Morgan published his teaser, Trump implored the public to “compare his video promo and how it was doctored to the real thing.”
“Hopefully they will now be doing some big changes to their final product. It just shows, however, what I have to deal with in the Fake News Media. He went out of his way to deceptively edit an interview and got caught. That is a big story, isn’t it?” he added.
President Donald J. Trump:
“Piers Morgan, like the rest of the Fake News Media, attempted to unlawfully and deceptively edit his long and tedious interview with me. He wanted to make it look like I walked out on the interview when my time limit of 20 minutes went over… pic.twitter.com/c5npGXzp7w

He also addressed the beef over the 2020 election results.
“The interview was actually very strong on the 2020 Election Fraud, with me calling him ‘a fool’ if he truly believed those results. The evidence is massive and irrefutable (check out Truth the Vote and the Dinesh D’Souza documentary, which will all be coming out soon),” he said.
To be clear, Trump lost the 2020 election, and the fraud that has been uncovered thus far wasn’t enough to have altered the outcome.
With Morgan having been exposed, he’s now facing a massive amount of backlash from Trump supporters and allies, including Fox News contributor Caitlyn Jenner, who announced the cancellation of an upcoming interview with him over this stunt.
“This is a pathetic attempt to use President Trump as a way to revive the career of a failed television host,” @TayFromCA …couldn’t agree more. @piersmorgan I have just had my management cancel my appearance with you for this Wednesday because of your repulsive misconduct today

I’d hate to be a booker on @piersmorgan new show. Any flak that books their boss deserves to get fired

Donald Trump has been completely stitched up by Piers Morgan. It is disgraceful behaviour.
I am pleased the 45th President now knows what Piers really thinks of him.

Why do you find the incessant need to lie? He clearly DID NOT end the interview by storming off and there’s audio to prove it. @piersmorgan stop with the bullshit. You know it didn’t end that way, say something instead of curling up in a ball and being an idiot. https://t.co/nsxswiu1yx

If my team were as unethical and dishonest as the snake @piersmorgan, we would have sensationally edited this clip of Trump to make it look like he threw a tantrum and asked the cameras to be shut off when in reality—the interview was over and we simply wanted to chat off-camera. pic.twitter.com/uuJo4e2zNi

But instead of reconsidering how he’d acted, Morgan has chosen to double, triple and quadruple down. As seen in the reply below to Trump’s statement, he seems to believe it was a “great interview” and that the only reason the former president was offended by it was because of their tiff over the 2020 election:
Morning, Mr President!
It was a great interview, thanks for all your time.
Sorry you got so annoyed that I don’t believe the 2020 election was rigged or stolen from you, but as I said, where’s your proof? If you have it, show us – or accept the result and move on. pic.twitter.com/QD4ONenhfZ
