Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage clashed with Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain (GMB) on Wednesday. It came as the pair discussed Donald Trump’s approach to the coronavirus crisis. The row broke out as they talked about Donald Trump’s remarks in April, after the US President questioned whether research should take place into injecting patients with “disinfectant” to combat coronavirus. Piers Morgan argued that by using the word “disinfectant”, President Trump was indicating “bleach” should be used to kill coronavirus. Mr Farage lashed out at the presenter and insisted the President never used the word bleach.
While speaking on TalkRadio in the evening, Mr Farage took aim at Mr Morgan again and insisted he had wasted his time with a “false premise.”
Mr Farage said: “Piers said emphatically that Donald Trump said you should drink bleach.
“I said that is simply not true.
“Piers then played the clip where Trump talked about ‘maybe we can have injections of some kind of disinfectant’.

“Piers took this as evidence that he said bleach which of course he had not.”
Mr Farage continued to reiterate his issue with the interview and why he grew frustrated.
He said: “I did my teeth this morning and I used mouthwash, that is a form of disinfectant.
“The whole argument was based on a false premise and I am very surprised that he wasted my time, his time and more importantly the viewers’ time.
“His refusal to mandate people to wear masks; to tell them from the podium to take it seriously, wear your mask, socially distance. All that kind of thing.
“His nonsensical cure theories like bleach and so on, all of that to me was woefully irresponsible”.
Mr Farage interrupted and said: “No, no, no, no, no, end this nonsense.
“He never mentioned bleach Piers, do not allow your viewers to believe that.”
The exchanges then became more heated before Mr Farage concluded Mr Morgan was peddling “fake news”.
