Donald Trump protester to Piers Morgan: ‘I’m a communist, you idiot!’

On Thursday on "Good Morning Britain," host Piers Morgan got into a shouting match with Ash Sarkar, a Donald Trump protester.

Morgan criticized those who are strongly protesting Trump’s immigration policies but — in his opinion — gave a pass to President Obama, who deported millions of illegal immigrants during his tenure in office.

Throughout the freewheeling discussion, Morgan jabbed at Sarkar for not being as tough on her “hero” Obama as she is on Trump. Sarkar fired back: “He’s not my hero! I’m a communist, you idiot!”

Time and time again, Sarkar argued with Morgan that she had in fact criticized Obama when he was in office. Morgan said, “What you do is be relentlessly anti-Trump and relentlessly pro somebody like Obama.”

Sarkar cut him off, saying: “I’m not pro-Obama! I’m a critic of Obama! I’m a critic of the Democratic Party! Because I’m literally a communist!”

Again, Reid and the other panelists (a more muted pro-Trump journalist, Andrew Walker, and totally silent co-host Kate Garraway) laughed. At that point, they had the best seats in the house for this piece of absurdist theater.
