Piers Morgan accuses Donald Trump of "lying" and "deflecting" the truth over coronavirus after the President's car crash interview with HBO.

Piers Morgan has once again hit out at Donald Trump following the President's car crash interview with HBO.

The 40-minute exchange with respected journalist Jonathan Swan for AXIOS has gone viral on social media, with one clip racking up 18 million views on Twitter in just six hours.

During the interview, Trump brandished several graphs demonstrating what he claimed to be his administration's excellent progress dealing with coronavirus, doubled down on his well-wishes for Jeffrey Epstein associate Ghislaine Maxwell and refused to compliment the late civil rights leader John Lewis because he failed to attend his inauguration.

Hitting out at Trump in his latest column for the Daily Mail, Good Morning Britain host Morgan wrote: "He's now reduced to lying, obfuscating, deflecting, and anything else he can think of to avoid being held accountable for what has happened on his watch.

"Last night, Americans saw their President deny the incontrovertible. They saw him pretend he's got coronavirus under control when he's completely lost control. And they saw him challenged relentlessly on all this bullsh*t by a top-class journalist determined not to let him off the hook.

He continued: "Some people on social media even assumed it must be a comedy sketch given how preposterous it appeared and the fact it was appearing on a network famed for shows like Veep and Succession. This, sadly, was very real. I didn't laugh. Instead, I cringed, I despaired, and then I felt angry.

"America is being overrun by coronavirus because its narcissistic President has put his personal ego before doing his job – from spewing his dangerous 'cure' theories to trashing his top medical experts if they dare to speak the truth and boasting inanely about his covid news conference TV ratings.

"Trump's made the crisis all about him, not the American people."

Almost 160,000 people have now died from coronavirus in the US, with an average of more than 1,000 losing their lives every day.
