Another day, another fiery clash for Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain.
Today (July 12), Morgan was dubbed an "idiot" and "incompetent" by anti-Donald Trump protester Ash Sarkar.
Sarkar was on GMB to speak against Trump's border separation policy ahead of his meeting with Prime Minister Theresa May tomorrow.
However, true to form, Morgan kept interrupting Sarkar, asking her instead about Barack Obama's deportation policy, despite her frequently claiming that she wasn't a fan of the former President either.
"How many people did he deport? Why didn't you protest him?" asked Morgan, before adding: "You don't even know what your hero Obama did."
Sarkar replied: "He's not my hero. I'm a communist, you idiot!"
Even co-host Susanna Reid had had enough, exclaiming to Morgan: "Why didn't you go out and march against Obama if you're so keen to protest against him?"
Sarkar then labelled Morgan "an incompetent journalist", claiming that he'd put words in her mouth, before adding: "It's embarrassing."
Viewers on Twitter were enraged by the presenter, who consistently talked over Sarkar and wrongly assumed she was an Obama supporter.
I would like to say that @piersmorgan what you did on good morning Britain today with the trump protester was absolutely disgusting, I’ve seen you argue over people but this was a whole new level. I hope you feel really horrible about yourself. She came on there as a guest,- Ella armstrong ❤️ (@Ellaxarms) July 12, 2018
I agree. @piersmorgan was completely out of line. I will no longer be watching good morning britain, particularly now viewers are no longer "valuable" it's become unbearable.- Naomi Greasley (@NgNomes) July 12, 2018
Why is Piers asking in good morning Britain why people are protesting against Trump? Where has he been, in a bunker? Also, he called him ally. That gave me shivers. And lastly, he doesn't know how to have a conversation. He has basically attacked their guest #goodmorningbritain- Elvira Higueras (@Lunatica_89) July 12, 2018
Fiery debate....piers said that Turkey has the worst dictatorship and then went into bully and shout! Hardly a debate....disgraceful- ist86 (@ruffus31) July 12, 2018
You didn’t discuss it. Piers just shouted at her.- Emma Kennedy (@EmmaKennedy) July 12, 2018
There were some out there defending the host's style though, as Morgan himself took to Twitter to agree with one viewer, who wrote: "She talked over her co guest, Susanna and Piers. But when Piers asks her a simple question, she can't answer, he's a bully! Typical!
"Yes, he repeated it, because she refused to answer it."
On July 10, Morgan clashed with the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan over the Donald Trump baby balloon.
He accused Khan of hypocrisy, claiming that he wouldn't allow an offensive balloon of Hillary Clinton or Obama to be flown over Parliament.
Good Morning Britain airs on weekdays from 6am on ITV.
