Piers Morgan declared himself a “gay icon” in a bizarre rant about Donald Trump on Tuesday (October 13).
The Good Morning Britain star was discussing the U.S. President’s latest ramblings about coronavirus when he made the odd claim.
Trump was seen at a rally in Florida on Monday (October 12) offering to kiss men in the audience before dancing to the song YMCA.
What did Piers Morgan say on Good Morning Britain?
“The guy may well have coronavirus for all we know,” ranted Piers.
“He’s also started dancing, which I’ve never seen!” he continued. “I tell you what, if you’ve ever wondered what he’s like on steroids you’re seeing it now!”
“The weird thing is he keeps choosing YMCA because it says ‘young man’. But do you think he has any idea about its meaning?”
“Richard, do you want to educate the President on his preferred music of choice? Is trump a gay icon?” asked Piers.
“More than you are, love,” responded Richard Arnold.
Piers then hit back: “I am a bit of a gay icon!”

“He has also been so lame in dealing with it that the US is in a terrible mess.
“This is his mess.”
Piers replied: “Nobody’s been more critical of Trump over Covid than me.
“But I don’t want him or his wife to die from it.
