Piers Morgan tells Donald Trump to ‘suck it up and go’ unless he has proof of election fraud
PIERS Morgan has penned a straight-talking article telling his former friend Donald Trump to "suck it up" and leave the White House.
The British journalist said he was "giving it straight" to the out-going President in his column for the Daily Mail, telling the Don plainly: "You lost".
His open letter to the president, titled "stop sulking, suck it up, and go now with your head held high before this pathetic tantrum wipes out everything your followers still have to admire you for," is written with "brutal honesty" Mr Morgan insists.
While Piers calmly explained to Trump he had lost the election, he did not mince his words discussing the hotel tycoon's allegations of electoral fraud.
He wrote: "What you're NOT entitled to do is brand the whole election a fraud on the American people or claim your presidency has been stolen from you."
Piers continued that Donald has had six days to "put up and shut up on these outlandish conspiracy theories," but has failed to let-up.
He also accused Mr Trump and his lawyer, Rudy Guiliani, of "spewing uncorroborated nonsense" and threatening democracy.
It comes as the soon-to-be former POTUS has doubled down on his refusal to accept election defeat as his sons demanded a "manual recount" and even Melania told him not to give up.
Raging Trump dispatched his son Eric and lawyer Rudy Giuliani to Philadelphia to pursue his claim of fraud.
Eric Trump said: "This is absolute fraud. We've seen it in Philadelphia before."
Giuliani told a press conference at the Four Seasons Total Landscaping that Trump was "obviously not gonna concede" and he will start filing lawsuits today.
He said: "I don't know if there's enough evidence to set aside the entire election. Certainly not around the country, maybe in Pennsylvania."
Giuliani made a number of claims, including that ballots came in late "in bundles" and Republican observers in Pittsburgh were "kept so far away they had to use binoculars to see the ballots".
The lawyer said around 300,000 ballots were not valid, according to observers.
'DON'T BE THE BIGGEST LOSER'
He also claimed he had video documenting that, plus 50 witnesses, and that the team will file a corresponding lawsuit for claims including "violating civil rights for conducting an unfair election" and violating equal protection by treating Philadelphia and Pittsburgh different from the rest of the state.
But Piers is having none of it – telling him: "Your swaggering braggadocio style of macho egotistical leadership worked when the good times were rolling but failed abjectly when the country was plunged into massive crisis.
"And now you've paid the ultimate political price – the loss of the election."
The oustpoken TV presenter also claimed Donald failed to show empathy, which is why he lost out to Joe Biden.
He said the Don's two biggest failures of his presidency were the handling of the coronavirus pandemic and growing racial tensions following the tragic death of George Floyd.
The TV personality wrote that Donald had "poured fuel" on the fire of racial injustice in the US.
He added: "The bottom line with covid is that 230,000 people have now died on your watch from a virus that should have been far better contained in the US but wasn't because you never took it seriously enough and continue not to."
However, it's not all bad – with Piers gently reminding the smarting President he managed to increase his vote among minority groups, that he received the second-largest amount of votes in any US election ever, and that – pre-pandemic – he presided over a strong economy.
Signing off the open letter, Morgan writes: "Donald, I say this as your friend: it's over," adding: "In short, don't be The Biggest Loser."
