PIERS Morgan called Nigel Farage “pathetic and gracious” for giving Donald Trump a file of all his criticisms.
The TalkTV host, 57, said Farage tried to stitch him up but boasted how it backfired by giving him a “cork” of an interview.
And he insisted he stands behind all his criticism of the former US president after the “pathetic attempt to ruin my interview”.
It came after Trump stormed out of a chat with Piers after reading the three-page document of all his criticisms.
Farage admitted to giving the document to the former US president and told him that Piers bragged in the British media that he was his friend, while also bonding with him.
He said: “Trump was clearly very displeased. The interview was therefore not as friendly as it could have been.”
Piers hit back online: “Actually, Nigel, all you did when you sent him that file of my criticism (which I stand behind) was in a pathetic attempt to ruin my Trump interview — especially graciously after I told you afterward. congratulated yours.
“Luckily it backfired and I got a corkscrew!”
It comes after he jokingly stormed away from ITV in his first return to broadcasting since leaving Good Morning Britain.
He told Lorraine Kelly, 62, on her daytime show that he had always tried to be honest with Trump.
And he urged viewers to watch the interview before jumping to conclusions, teasing that it was a heated debate, but also a lot of fun.
He added that he was sorry to leave GMB and promised to tackle the awakening culture in his new TalkTV show Uncensored.
Piers wrote in The Sun today of Trump snapping “what the f**k is this?” while being challenged for his refusal to accept his defeat in the 2020 US election.
He started reading some of Piers’ previous quotes about him, including “Trump is a supreme narcissist,” before calling him a fake and later canceling the interview.
The full interview will air when his global TalkTV show Piers Morgan Uncensored launches Monday.
Trump also called his interviewer dishonest, a fool and barked at the shocked TV crew, “Turn the cameras off!”
It came after Piers blamed him for last year’s Capitol riots.
But Trump denied leaving the interview, claiming the released clip was “deceptively edited”.
Piers urged the former president to share evidence to substantiate unproven claims of voter fraud.
