Piers Morgan brushes off Trump’s Omarosa slam: She’s called me a lot worse, just upset for innocent dogs

Piers Morgan took exception to President Donald Trump’s slam of Omarosa Manigault-Newman as a “dog,” but admitted he had been called a lot worse by the former “Apprentice” star.

“This is an outrageous slur,” the “Good Morning Britain” host quipped in a tongue-in-cheek reaction to Trump’s tweet. “Dogs are loyal, kind, affectionate creatures.”

The president unleashed a no-turning-back attack on the former White House aide after she revealed she had made secret recordings during her tenure in the Trump administration.

“When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out,” Trump tweeted Tuesday. “Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!”

Morgan later responded to a question from a Twitter user about his response to the president’s comments.

“Omarosa called me a lot worse than that every day for 4 weeks on Celebrity Apprentice – including a ‘f**king f*ggot,'” Morgan tweeted, referring to his appearance with Manigault-Newman during the first season of the Trump-hosted “The Celebrity Apprentice.”

Earlier this year, the British journalist slammed the administration’s hiring of his former co-star whom he shredded in a scathing op-ed for the Daily Mail, in which he claimed Manigault-Newman offered to sleep with him in order to win the season.

“I’ve met a lot of vile human beings in my life, from dictators and terrorists to sex abusers and wicked conmen. But I’ve never met anyone quite so relentlessly loathsome as Omarosa; a vicious, duplicitous, lying, conniving, backstabbing piece of work,” Morgan wrote in the op-ed.

“Omarosa is a reprehensible human being, prepared to offer sex to win a reality TV show and use the most vile homophobic slurs against rival contestants,” he added.

As Trump’s tweets about Manigault-Newman reverberated on Twitter Tuesday, it was no surprise that the mainstream media would find a way to make one of his comments about race.

“People in the White House hated her. She was vicious but not smart,” Trump tweeted Monday.

“Who does the president attack on Twitter constantly? African Americans,” CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said on “New Day” Tuesday. “Whether it’s the UCLA basketball team, whether it’s the NFL football players, whether it’s our colleague Don Lemon, LeBron James. It’s always black people that he’s attacking. Not exclusively, but to a disproportionate extent, he’s attacking black people.”

Piers Morgan called out Toobin’s assessment as “Fake news.”

While there are always those ready to slam Trump for anything he tweets, many did agree with Morgan.
