‘You sound completely barking mad, do you know that?’ said Morgan, obnoxiously. At which point Rudy went bananas, and attacked Morgan for having failed as a journalist in America — a reference to Morgan’s unsuccessful stint as a CNN anchor, when he took over from the legendary Larry King.
Things went from bad to worse as Rudy berated Piers Morgan for ‘helping to create violence in this country’. He said that Piers had ‘sucked up’ — meaning he had sought to ingratiate himself with the liberal establishment at the expense of appealing to viewers — whereupon Morgan and his co-host Susanna Reid started accusing him of using profanities. Rudy clearly said sucked, but never mind.
