SEAN HANNITY (HOST): I see that he is really grown into the job.

PIERS MORGAN: I agree, yeah.

HANNITY: And his growth trajectory I think and I think I'm being objective has been fairly phenomenal.

MORGAN: I think funny enough, even in the last 48 hours, I think the way that he's responded to George Bush's death has been really interesting. Everyone knows that they didn't get on, everyone knows that Donald Trump's been feuding with the Bushes ever since he ran for president, in fact before that. I've interviewed him in the past where he's been very critical of George W. Bush and his presidency. He then went after Jeb Bush, obviously "low energy Jeb" and so on. We know that George H.W. Bush was no fan of Trump and in fact voted for Hillary Clinton. The normal Donald Trump response would've been rather like his response to John McCain's death; pretty scathing and probably not engaged at all. In fact he's gone very presidential in the way that many people would like him to be in moments like this.
