PIERS Morgan has today branded former friend Donald Trump a “gutless, graceless, sore loser” as he left the White House for the final time.
The Good Morning Britain host, 55, said the former President “blew it” and suggested he would have been re-elected if he had “shown Americans leadership when it really mattered”.

He added that Trump had “failed them spectacularly badly” and said he now “slinks off as a gutless graceless sore loser”.
Piers then signed off his scathing tweet by adding: “Shame one you”.
Uploading a picture of the pair together, Piers wrote: “You blew it, Donald.
“If you’d shown Americans leadership & empathy when it really mattered in the past year, you’d have been re-elected.
'YOU BLEW IT'
“Instead, you failed them. Spectacularly badly.
“And now you slink off as a gutless graceless sore loser. How pathetic. Shame on you.”
Piers’ message came shortly after Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th president of the United States today.
And now you slink off as a gutless graceless sore loser. How pathetic. Shame on you.”
The new President hailed a day of "history and hope" and urged the US to "come together" when he was sworn in as President today.
Biden said "my whole soul is in this, bringing America together" as he delivered his inaugural address to a reduced crowd at the Capitol in Washington DC.
The event was guarded by 25,000 members of the National Guard amid security concerns following the storming of the Capitol by Trump supporters on January 6.
Donald Trump did not attend Biden's inauguration and is the first president since Andrew Johnson in 1869 to opt out.
Biden said: “Few people in our nation’s history have been more challenged, or found a time more difficult, than the time we’re in now.
“A once-in-a-century virus silently stalks the country.
"A cry for racial justice some 400 years in the making moves us. The dream of justice for all will be deferred no longer.
"A cry for survival comes from the planet itself. A cry that couldn't be any more desperate or any more clear.
"And now, the rise of political extremism, white supremacy, domestic terrorism that we must confront and we will defeat.
"To overcome these challenges requires so much more than words. It requires the most elusive of all things in a democracy: unity."
