Piers Morgan is an absolute rat of a human being. The man has no morals, journalistic or otherwise, and would burn his granny if that was the way the wind of public opinion was blowing. I wouldn't donate certain bodily fluids to him if he was on fire.....

The former President is entertaining, if not, then people would have ignored him a long time ago

Just change the name from Talk TV to Trash TV and they're all set.

Murdoch's real aim with TalkTV is to "bash the BBC", according to Jean Seaton, media professor at the University of Westminster and official historian of the state-funded broadcaster.

The BBC will be there long after Murdoch and his trash channel are planted.

"I threatened him like he has never been threatened before," he said.

I heard it was Biden’s tough guy routine that started the war, guess 45 wants to take credit for it too.

Over 192 channels offered, and still nothing worth watching.

Bruce Springsteen was more than spot on, and that was in 1992.

Murdoch is a gossipy crap-stirring sleazeball of the highest degree. He, like trump has no morals, no scruples, no class, no character whatsoever. Just LOOK at his scowling greedy face. He's been a scourge on US TV since at least the late 80s. He is scum.

During the interview, Trump talked about his relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin during his tenure at the White House.

"I threatened him like he has never been threatened before," he said.

Is kissing Putin's fanny and calling him a 'genius' any kind of 'threat', Traitor Boy? Trashtalker trump doesn't know how to tell the truth. And he's now sassing off about Harry and Meghan which is none of his business in the first place.

But a promotional clip appeared to show the former U.S. president storming off after being challenged about his claims the 2020 U.S. election was "stolen" from him.

Because he's a coward who can't face reality. Yet at the same time this blubbering idiot just can't shut his egotistical pompous yap.

The walking off was faked.

this was proven false a week ago. But gotta get those ratings!

-3 ( +3 / -6 )

But a promotional clip appeared to show the former U.S. president storming off after being challenged about his claims the 2020 U.S. election was "stolen" from him.

The clip was fake, Trump didn’t walk off, be stayed until the interview. Knowing that Piers Morgan might pull some kind of stunt, Trump had the entire interview secretly recorded. This recording was released last week.

But I suppose you are the kind of person who prefers a pleasant lie to an unpleasant truth whenever Trump is the subject, your post makes you appear to be unhinged.

For the mods here at JT, were starpunk’s post about Obama or Biden, you would have already deleted it.

PM can be a pretty slimy character, but he has done some good work.

Him and Orange make a nice couple.

Talk TV will likely fail like so much conventional media.

Murdoch is a gossipy crap-stirring sleazeball of the highest degree.

Depends on each person's point of view.

He, like trump has no morals, no scruples, no class, no character whatsoever.

Quite the opposite, both men (Murdoch more so) have been extremely successful and the left is just angry because they are powerless to shut them up, and good that they won't, says a lot about the character the people trying to bury them, that feeling goes both ways.

Just LOOK at his scowling greedy face. He's been a scourge on US TV since at least the late 80s. He is scum. 

With all due respect, what do their visual appearances have to do with anything?

Is kissing Putin's fanny and calling him a 'genius' any kind of 'threat', Traitor Boy?

So the current President has a cordial relationship with Xi, is he a traitor as well or Dennis Rodman, how about Bernie? So then judging by your comments that means these people are all

Trashtalker trump doesn't know how to tell the truth. And he's now sassing off about Harry and Meghan which is none of his business in the first place. 

This is why I am so happy that Musk bought Twitter, who are people on the left to say what anyone can say or cannot. If Trump talks trash, he can do that, if people want to talk trash about Trump it is their right as well. just be far about it, making the emotional argument that it's not his business is just ludicrous.

Because he's a coward who can't face reality.

Neither could Twitter and other social media platforms, that is all about to change later this year, he should be able to talk and tweet whatever and when he wants and again, if the left can say whatever they want, then it should be fair all the way down the middle, free speech belongs to everyone, not just one political side.

Murdoch dropped his Trump support.

Depending on which report you believe. Not sure what to believe on that one.

During the interview, Trump talked about his relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin during his tenure at the White House.

"I threatened him like he has never been threatened before," he said.

Which is why Russia did not dare invade Ukraine during Trump''s term in office. This is a fact.

According to excerpts released by The Sun newspaper, Trump agreed with Morgan's claim that Harry was controlled by Meghan, and said the couple would eventually split up.

This contrasts with the title of this article. Trump wasn't talking trash.

Who is this article's author?

Nov 18, 2021 — Fox News boss Rupert Murdoch has said Donald Trump should stop focusing “on the past” in a rare public rebuke of the former US president.

He’s doing exactly that, it’s not it’s important to have Murdoch’s support, Trump is neither losing or gaining anything. Murdoch can feel however he wants and Trump as well.

-2 ( +4 / -6 )

The Australian-born media mogul has long chafed at Britain's broadcasting laws, which prevent the kind of pro-Trump, right-wing demagoguery seen on his Fox News channel in the United States.

Sounds like the BBC restrict free speech.

-1 ( +5 / -6 )

I’d just like to point out that although Australian-born, Rupert Murdoch has not been a citizen of his birth country since 1985, the year he became a citizen of the United States of America.

Was it the reality that Russia didn't invade Ukraine when Trump was in office?

I miss his egotistical pompous yap.

This weak, inept, lying current president has caused a world of trouble---literally.

He couldn't obtain more more more media because Australian law forbids it, so he gave up his Aussie citizenship and sold himself out in order to get it all. Note that he also obtained 'News of the World' in the UK. He is greedy, sleezy, gossipy, a sellout. He has no soul.

That's because Putin had a puppet in the U.S.A. who still kowtows to him, even now.

I miss his egotistical pompous yap.

That makes one of us. Personally, I have no patience or respect for an ill-mannered loudmouth juvenile bully who is narcisstic, boorish and just can't/won't shut up and go away.

*That's because Putin had a puppet in the U.S.A. who still kowtows to him, even now.*

That is Trump's genius.

I thought the concept of having a puppet in office would let one get away with what they want; yet here, we have Putin dancing all over Ukraine while Biden sits idly by.

I bet the Ukrainians wouldn't mind if Biden had kowtowed to Putin if it prevented him from invading their country.

*That makes one of us. Personally, I have no patience or respect for an ill-mannered loudmouth juvenile bully who is narcisstic, boorish and just can't/won't shut up and go away.*

Sure--some of the stuff that comes out of his mouth is embarrassing. I'm more concerned with action, and less with words.

But if it keeps China, North Korea, and Putin in place, no complaints from me.

He's a criminal, as rotten as Xi, Kim, and Putin. At least those jerks don't have the nerve to say they're messiahs and they're not sexual deviants and assaulters. Actions DO speak, and like those dictators listed above, trump is evil and immoral. His actions AND words say it all.

Unlike the other three you mentioned, Trump was a democratically elected leader in an undisputed election.

And America thrived under his leadership, the world was a safer place, and nutty liberal progressives voted in someone really dangerous now.

The detriments of a democracy.

Who are you to say that he sold himself out?! You don’t know the man or what his motives were. He, like a lot of powerful billionaires have different reasons for wanting to accumulate wealth and none of us can speculate what those reasons are.

Note that he also obtained 'News of the World' in the UK. He is greedy, sleezy, gossipy, a sellout. He has no soul. 

If you go by that, then you should hate and apply those sentiments at Jeff Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg as well, food for thought.

That's because Putin had a puppet in the U.S.A.

He had no puppet, there was a 3 year massive investigation with 19 lawyers, 500 subpoenas and 500 witnesses that couldn’t prove that theory. You guys need to get over that tired accusation. The Dems had their time and chance to make the case and they couldn’t in the end, move on.

*who still kowtows to him, even now.*

Proof?

*That makes one of us. Personally, I have no patience or respect for an ill-mannered loudmouth juvenile bully who is narcisstic, boorish and just can't/won't shut up and go away.*

Ok, that’s you, but half of the country disagrees with you. They want to hear from him. The great thing about freedom of speech is, we should tolerate each other’s views and not block them. We don’t have to like them, just respect them. Trump won’t go anywhere or be silenced and neither will conservatives and Musk made that abundantly clear yesterday. Free speech and the 1st amendment belongs to all Americans equally, not just to one side of the political spectrum. Liberals don’t hold a monopoly on free speech anymore.

-3 ( +1 / -4 )

He’s not a criminal and what have the left been feeding you guys. Trump never bombed any country, destroyed killed innocent men, women and children, starved people, practiced genocide on anyone, confiscated or seized property from anyone, tortured anyone. If he did any of these things then you can equate the man to these horrible people, if not, then you’re just doing the typical liberal emotional outburst. Relax.

At least those jerks don't have the nerve to say they're messiahs and they're not sexual deviants and assaulters.

What? You have no way of knowing this. Zero. Lol

By the way, you should look and read what these men have done to women, Google it. Trump hasn’t done anything near as devious as what some of these men have done to women. Again, read up on it and less emotion, you will be shocked when you find out.

Actions DO speak, and like those dictators listed above, trump is evil and immoral.

Yes, but Trump is not a nowhere near what we would call a dictator. I think at this point, the real dictators are the people that will stop at nothing to stop and kill the 1st amendment and silence conservatives forever, the entire Washington establishment are the real dictatorship in this country and that has to change and judging by the polls, it seems like that is happening. Their actions and words pushed for this radical shift to the right.

Not funny at all. Pathetic actually. He raped America and everything he says, everything he has done only sinks him deeper and deeper into the muck of infamy. He keeps sinking deeper into the ditch he's dug around himself. Everything he says, every action, his demeanor only drags him further down minute by minute. His ego, cruelty, vanity, selfishness is clearly visible to all.

It's not funny. Caligula wasn't funny. And neither is the antichrist Trump.
