RICHARD Madeley left Good Morning Britain viewers furious today over an “offensive” remark live on air.
He made the comment after Biden, 80, referred to Cambodia as Colombia in front of the Cambodian PM last week.
Semanas antes, he was mocked for stumbling over Rishi Sunak’s name in a speech praising the new PM, who is a practising Hindu and the first non-white PM.
Él dijo: “Just today, we’ve got news that ‘Rashid Sanook’ is now the prime minister. As my brother would say, ‘Go figure!’”
But viewers weren’t happy with Richard’s personal attack on the politician.
Taking to to Twitter, one raged: “Richard Madeley calling Biden “borderline senile”??! Surely that’s not allowed, that’s incredibly inappropriate for a broadcaster to be saying!”
A second echoed: “Dr Madeley mocking Biden … is offensive to many. Bring back @edballs please.”
Another viewer scoffed: “Partridge calling someone borderline senile?”
And a fifth shared their wish to send the presenter to la luna.
