‘You’ve Lost the Plot!’ Piers Morgan Rips ‘Unhinged’ Giuliani in Explosive On-Air Fight Over Trump, Protests


Rudy Giuliani and Piers Morgan engaged in a remarkably ugly back in forth on British morning television that started with a conversation about police brutality and devolved into flying insults.

Giuliani appeared for an interview on Thursday morning’s Good Morning Britain show, and the former New York Mayor was pressed by the morning show host about the defense of President Donald Trump’s tweet which read: “When the looting starts, the shooting starts,” and other topics surrounding George Floyd’s death and the civil unrest that has followed suit.

As the interview got heated, Giuliani blasted Morgan for not defending the president because he “knew Trump wasn’t racist” before calling him a “disgrace” and a “liar.” In a scathing rebuke, Morgan then branded Giuliani “mad” and “unhinged” over his “abusive” comments.

“Rudy, I’m sorry but you sound completely barking mad,” Morgan said. Do you know that? You’ve completely lost the plot!”

“You’re the one who got thrown off television here, cause you had ratings of about two!” Giuliani replied. “So don’t tell me I’ve lost anything.”
