Piers Morgan has only just returned from a break but he’s already busy clashing with guests on Good Morning Britain.
The TV presenter and Susanna Reid were joined by a host of political commentators including Harmeet Dhillon and Lord Jeffrey Archer to discuss the upcoming US presidential election between President Donald Trump and Joe Biden.
Harmeet, a passionate Trump supporter, is confident the president will be reelected to the White House on Tuesday.
Piers questioned: ‘Why given Donald Trump’s woeful handling of this pandemic which has led to America having over 20% of the world’s deaths from this virus and is now having over 1,000 people a day dying, record infection rates all over America, it’s out of control and yet Donald Trump is almost acting like an ostrich.
‘Head in the sand pretending it’s not happening. It’s all happened on his watch. He is the president, he is accountable. Why should Americans vote for him?’
Harmeet shot back: ‘Well there’s a lot of propaganda and untruth in your question Piers but in reality, our system of government is very different from your own.’
At this point, Piers tried to interrupt but Harmeet continued ranting on despite his repeated pleas of: ‘Hang on, excuse me, can you stop talking for a moment?’
He even wondered: ‘Is there a problem with your hearing?’ much to the amusement of the other guests who cracked up laughing.
Naturally, she didn’t appreciate Piers criticising Trump for his dismissive attitude towards encouraging the American public to wear face masks during the coronavirus pandemic.
‘Excuse me, that is ignorant. There is no legal constitutional right to do that,’ Harmeen hit back at Piers who responded: ‘Sorry, he has the power to say from his platform wear a damn mask.
‘He has the power to stand at the presidential podium, to tell the American people to take the virus seriously, to wear a mask, and to stand by Dr Fauci.’
Piers then barked: ‘You can’t filibuster me, it’s my programme.’
Susanna Reid cheekily interjected: ‘It’s like interviewing yourself, isn’t it?’
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
