Morgan ― who won “The Celebrity Apprentice” in 2008 and has previously said he considers Trump to be a “good friend” ― listed 10 reasons why he should be handed “the toughest job in world politics” in his Tuesday column for the Daily Mail newspaper.
“I don’t need the salary and in fact, I’d literally pay to work for you,” he wrote.
However, Morgan’s application letter provoked ire on social media.
He was more than likely being tongue-in-cheek with the missive, in which he told Trump he needed someone like him to “look you in the eye and tell you when you’re being an idiot.”
But many people on Trump’s favorite social media platform didn’t think Morgan’s application was such a great idea.
