Trump’s team repeatedly ask Piers Morgan to wrap up interview in leaked audio clip

Former president Donald Trump hit out at presenter Piers Morgan and accused him of doctoring the promo of an interview to suggest that the Republican leader stormed out of the room. In the edited trailer, an irate Mr Trump is shown grimacing as Mr Morgan calls the 2020 election “free and fair” and says the ex-president “never produced the hard evidence” to prove otherwise. The former president is seen interjecting by shouting “excuse me” over and over again before apparently flouncing off.

However, new audio released to NBC News by a Trump spokesman indicates that the interview in fact came to a far more amicable end, with the two men enjoying a discussion about the ex-president’s alleged hole-in-one during a recent golf game.

Meanwhile, Rudy Giuliani, former New York City mayor and former attorney to ex-president was unmasked on Wednesday’s episode of Fox’s “The Masked Singer” as Jack in the Box. He was also the first star to be eliminated from the third round of contestants.

Mr Giuliani made an appearance on stage singing “Bad to the Bone” by George Thorogood & the Destroyers, leaving the judges and the audience stunned.

Kevin McCarthy’s denial falls flat as Rachel Maddow releases audio

Hours after House minority leader Kevin McCarthy denied a New York Times report that said he considered urging Donald Trump to resign after the 6 January riots, audio of the conversation has been released that appears to contradict his claims.

MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” aired audio on Thursday night, which was shared by the New York Timesconfirming that Mr McCarthy said he was considering asking Mr Trump to resign.

“The only discussion I would have with him is that I think [impeachment] will pass, and it would be my recommendation you resign,” he said on 10 January, 2021, in a phone call with GOP leaders.

He added that he did not think the then-president would take his advice, “but I don’t know.”

In a lengthy statement issued by Mr McCarthy before the audio was aired, the Republican said the NYT report was “false and wrong”.

“It comes as no surprise that the corporate media is obsessed with doing everything it can to further a liberal agenda. This promotional book tour is no different. If the reporters were interested in truth why would they ask for comment after the book was printed?” he said.

How old is Donald Trump? What about Joe Biden?

If Joe Biden wins reelection in 2024 he will be just 15 days shy of his 82nd birthday, making him by far the oldest-ever leader of the free world.

His age will likely come up as a Republican attack point in the next cycle, as the GOP has sought to portray him as senile and out of touch.

But Donald Trump himself was the oldest US president to ever be inaugurated when he took office in 2017.
