Nigel Farage lost his temper with Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain as the pair became embroiled in a fierce row live on air.
The right-wing politician, 56, appeared on the show to talk about the US election, but things turned sour between the two pals when Piers Morgan asked his view on Donald Trump’s statement about injecting disinfectant to combat coronavirus.
US President Donald Trump had been criticised by the medical community back in April after appearing to propose injecting disinfectant into the skin.
Piers Morgan pointed out the comment and referred to Donald Trump’s proposal to inject bleach into the skin, but Nigel Farage was enraged over the comment and demanded that Piers Morgan grow up and stop talking utter rubbish.
He went on to accuse Piers Morgan of sinking to the gutter and branded the interview the lowest grade interview he’d done in twenty years and Nigel Farage raged that Donald Trump didn’t talk about the word bleach and that they were talking about the person who’s going to become the leader of the western world.
Piers Morgan responded that he didn’t think the President stand there instructing people to inject bleach was good, but Nigel Farage insisted he hadn’t said bleach, then the clip of Donald Trump was replayed.
Piers Morgan pointed out that disinfectant was bleach and Nigel Farage continued to reiterate that he hadn’t emphatically said bleach, and then Nigel Farage snapped and said that he wasn’t surprised that his viewers were going down.
Susanna Reid then leapt in, pointing out that they weren’t going down and that they were going up and it was fake news.
To be honest Donald Trump didn’t say bleach, he said disinfectant which isn’t the same thing because bleach is a lot more toxic and there’s also medical disinfectant that’s used in hospitals, but saying that, you definitely wouldn’t want to be injecting it into the skin, I’d much rather wait for a vaccine!
I’m not a fan of Nigel Farage, far from it and Piers Morgan was already in the gutter, so he didn’t have to sink very far, and he takes delight in putting others down, just to feed his warped ego, and as for Nigel Farage, I do hope he’s being paid enough money to make a complete doofus of himself.
But whether it was bleach or disinfectant, both are equally as poisonous and should never be consumed and warning signs on bottles say so, and this was such lazy journalism by Piers Morgan.
That incident had already been exhaustively debated and what he should have been doing was talking about what’s happening now – he just brought it up to try and take a cheap shot.
At the end of the day, they were both there on live TV spitting their dummy out of their mouths like two overgrown children who don’t like losing and Piers Morgan just likes to get under people’s skins.
