Piers Morgan, 55, couldn’t help but question Sir Keir Starmer, 57, about the latest polls which have now put the Labour Party leader ahead of Boris Johnson, 56, to become the Prime Minister during the next General Election. With the current leader of the government facing a backlash over his response to the coronavirus pandemic, the Good Morning Britain host asked his guest how he “wasn’t laughing out loud” at the majority sitting in Parliament. However, when the politician responded, he seemed to rebuff what the host had asked him, leading to an awkward response to the questioning.
Sat alongside his co-host Susanna Reid, 49, Morgan put to Sir Starmer the Conservatives came out with a “huge election victory” at the end of December.
Towards the end of January, he said Johnson had become a “hero” for following through with Brexit, before the coronavirus crisis launching his platform down.
“There is a very negative view of his handling of the pandemic. How do you stop laughing out loud?” the host asked.
The politician replied as he shut down the presenter: “The reason I don’t laugh is because I think of the 65,000 people who have died and their families.”
