PIERS Morgan has revealed that he is “above” his “seismic split” with Donald Trump after the President unsubscribed on Twitter.
The Good Morning Britain host was dropped from Trump’s friend list on Saturday after criticizing his theory of curing the “bat ***” coronavirus.
The President has since said he was sarcastic when he suggested injecting disinfectants into patients with coronavirus and using UV rays to treat the deadly virus.
But Piers didn’t buy his explanation, and today he told co-host Susanna Reid that he wanted his old friend to listen to his constructive criticism.
He said, “There was a seismic split. We broke. “
When Susanna urged him not to follow, Piers inhaled and said, “I took a deep breath and thought” I’m done. ” “
Piers believes Trump’s reckless remarks could prove fatal in the November presidential election.
“I want him to listen to me,” said Piers. “If he could be more empathetic instead of floating crazy theories …
“It will probably cost him the election, and it will be his own mouth that will.
“I hope it changes. It’s too bad. He has to stay there and be president of the United States. “
Piers announced that he had not been followed by sharing a scathing column on Trump’s comments on bleach.
He wrote: “UPDATE: President @realDonaldTrump unsubscribed on Twitter a few hours after writing this column @DailyMail”.
The pair had previously been on friendly terms, with Piers even getting an interview with the President in 2018.
But Piers tore the president apart for the “incredibly dangerous” suggestion, saying, “I just see a president pretending to be a medical expert and spitting out theories that could have dire consequences. “
He added, “By far the most reckless and dangerous thing that President Trump has done is to use the most powerful podium in the world to spread his crazy theories on how to defeat the virus. “
Trump had suggested using UV rays on the body or people injecting bleach after a new Department of Homeland Security study found that direct sunlight, bleach and isopropyl alcohol kills the virus.
At a press briefing, he said, “Suppose we hit the body with a huge light, whether it’s ultraviolet light or just very powerful? He asked William Bryan, an official with the Department of Homeland Security.
“And then I said assuming you bring the light inside the body that you can do through the skin or in some other way.
“And I think you said you’re going to test this too?” That looks interesting. “
Experts warn that cleaning products can be dangerous and potentially fatal if ingested or put in the body.
And the American leader subsequently tried to defend his remarks, claiming that they had been “sarcastic”.
The news comes after Trump’s press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, who insisted that his suggestion be taken out of context.

A video from the White House press briefing shows the reaction of Dr. Deborah Birx, a specialist in the Coronavirus task force, when he suggested using a body wash.
Trump then asked Dr. Birx if it was possible “to apply light and heat to a remedy” during the briefing.
Dr. Birx replied, “Not like treatment,” as the video from the press briefing shows.
Maryland officials even had to clarify that “in no case should any disinfectant be administered into the body by injection, ingestion or any other route”, after the state emergency department received several calls regarding questions about the use of disinfectants.

Now, Donald Trump is reportedly planning to cut back on his daily coronavirus press conferences after his sudden exit from Friday’s briefing after only 22 minutes.
The president could end daily briefings as early as next week, and they will be much shorter when he appears, sources told Axios.
Several of Trump’s closest advisers inside and outside the White House said his “overexposure” was hurting his number of polls against his Democratic rival Joe Biden, the newspaper reports.
