Piers: Some at CNN Were 'Determined' to See Trump Lose

Posted: Feb 07, 2017 7:45 AM

Former CNN host Piers Morgan had some choice things to say about his old network in a conversation with Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Monday night. Morgan, who left CNN about three years ago, told Carlson that while many CNN anchors had integrity, he was convinced some employees "lower in the food chain" were "determined" to see Donald Trump lose the presidential election last year.

That bias was all but proven in the WikiLeaks email dumps that showed CNN colluding with Democrats to undermine anyone not named Hillary Clinton.

"It stank," Morgan said.

He is also not a fan of how screaming leftists are treating the president, who won "fair and square" against a "terrible" candidate like Hillary Clinton.

"I am appalled at the behavior from so many liberals right now," Morgan said. 

Morgan, who won a season of "Celebrity Apprentice" when Trump was still the star of the show, continued to defend his old friend against the media onslaught, wishing they would show him some respect. Yet, he acknowledged that it's a two-way street and Trump should also show the press some courtesy.

"You have a wall between the media and the White House" right now, he said. "They all better move on."
