British television personality Piers Morgan is not exactly well-liked.
Morgan is well known for frequently and shamelessly belittling anyone he deems inferior. Whether it's Meghan Markle, Lady Gaga, Megan Rapinoe, transgender people, or his own coworkers, he's never shy to attack the character of those he sees as beneath him—often inadvertently displaying his own mediocrity in the process.
Given character traits like these—along with a penchant for nasty tweets—it's not surprising that Piers Morgan and President Donald Trump get along.
Morgan threw his support behind Trump on election night.
He also conducted Trump's first international interview and has defended the President throughout his first term.
So it came as a surprise when Morgan joined the growing chorus of voices criticizing the President's delayed response to the virus that's caused a global pandemic and upended daily life in the United States.
Morgan panned the President's erratic and aggressive daily press briefings:
"On almost every level...Donald Trump is failing the American people. He's turning these briefings into a self-aggrandizing, self-justifying, overly defensive, politically partisan, almost like a rally to him -- almost like what's more important is winning the election in November."
He then addressed Trump directly, warning him to get his priorities in order.
"You will win the election in November if you get this right. If you stop making it about yourself and make it about the American people and show that you care about them over yourself, you will win. And, conversely, you will lose the election in November if you continue to make it about yourself, you continue playing silly politics, continue targeting Democrat governors because that suits you for your electoral purposes."
The President's briefings have grown noticeably more aggressive as reporters confront him with facts about his own administration's response to the virus—including citing the President's own frequent dismissals of its threat and unkept promises regarding its solution.
For once, People agreed with Piers's take.
Piers Morgan isn't the only one slamming Trump's press briefings.
Trump's leadership is repeatedly falling short—just like his temper.
