Piers Morgan is spending every day patiently waiting for a phone call from Donald Trump elevating him to a powerful White House position, it is understood.
Evidently encouraged by the frequent turnover of staff under Donald Trump, the British TV host and former voicemail hacker is hopeful that it is only a matter of time before he gets to have a crack at being the bloated amber dictator’s Director of Communications.
Simon Williams, the close and possibly only friend of Piers Morgan, told us, “In his mind, Piers has outgrown Good Morning Britain and, well, Britain too, so a job in the White House is the next logical step.
“And he has had a special admiration for Trump as someone who has managed to rise all the way to the top despite the complete absence of charm or talent, and would happily do anything at all to get a piece of that action.
“I suppose he will have some competition in the form of Nigel Farage, but although they both have a crush on Trump and the necessary narcissism to be part of Trump’s team, Morgan probably has the edge in terms of media experience. Perhaps Trump will consider a job-share between the two of them?”
Suzanna Reid is understood to be inundating Trump with emails extolling the virtues of her Good Morning Britain co-host, and saying that although she would miss having Piers beside her every morning, Trump would be welcome to have him over in America for as long as he needs him. Please.
