Susanna Reid was abruptly cut off by Sex Pistols star Johnny Rotten during an impassioned rant defending Donald Trump on Good Morning Britain.
The frontman, real name John Lydon, 64, appeared on the show on Wednesday to show his support for Trump with the US election results still not in.
But during his discussion, he roared: ‘Let me finish’ at Susanna, 49, when she tried to interject.
‘Let me finish’: Susanna Reid was abruptly cut off by Johnny Rotten as he shouted at her in an impassioned rant while defending Donald Trump on Good Morning Britain on Wednesday
He said: ‘I’m working-class English, it makes complete sense to me to vote for a person who actually talks about my kind of people.
‘Trump’s not a politician. He’s never claimed to be. How unusually, exceptionally wonderful is that for people like me?
‘We’re bored of your intellectual left-wing ideas. You talk twaddle. Everything you do, you just miss the point, of who the general public are…”
Susanna tried to interrupt and said: ‘But John…’
Something to say: Susanna tried to interrupt and said: ‘But John…’ and he said back: ‘No, let me finish.’
He said back: ‘No, let me finish.’
But Susanna and her co-host Piers Morgan seemed to find the whole thing rather amusing and called it the ‘interview of the morning’.
Susanna continued to try and get a word in and said: ‘I was just going to say, what about his rudeness and obnoxious…’
Johnny shouted back: ‘It does NOTHING for these people. NOTHING.’
His words come as the US election rumbles on with Donald Trump and Joe Biden waiting to hear who will be the next President.
He said: ‘I’m working-class English, it makes complete sense to me to vote for a person who actually talks about my kind of people’
The election effectively comes down to Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, where millions of votes remain uncounted. Georgia, Nevada and North Carolina are also being counted
Results may not be known until Wednesday or even beyond.
Meanwhile, Lydon and his wife, Nora Forster, have been married for 41 years, and if his latest book tells us anything it’s how patently he adores her.
Now 78, Nora has been battling Alzheimer’s disease for several years, with John, 64, her full-time carer. It’s an undertaking he carries out with his customary zeal.
As he says: ‘She doesn’t remember faces or situations, but her personality is still there and that’s the person I loved over 40 years ago. That’s not going to change. Of course, there are issues, but there are issues with everything. I’m a long-term hauler and so is my Babbie.
‘She doesn’t forget who I am, but with the grandchildren the memory’s in and out. She can remember things extremely accurately from 25 years ago, yet things that happened ten minutes ago she can’t. Her memory is a permanent jigsaw puzzle that keeps getting wrecked just as you’re about to complete it.’
While occasionally he has to bathe and dress his wife, too, ‘it’s not gone into complete incapacity’, he says. ‘But I’ve been promised by the experts it will. Until then, this is how it is.’
He employs help only when he has to go away on tour with his band, Public Image Limited (PiL), ‘but I’ve got to earn the money to pay for all this because it’s damned expensive. You need all new appliances because you can’t have gas rings in the kitchen. You need ones with those awful glass tops which are impossible to clean.
It’s all going on: Donald Trump made a speech from the East Room of the White House at 2.30 am where he declared victory and called the election a ‘fraud on the American people’
Tense time: Joe Biden made a speech just after midnight Tuesday asking Americans to be patient and claiming he would eventually be the victor
‘She’s burnt the house down twice now! Once in England and once here, and I can’t take any more of that! The first one in London happened after she’d cancelled the bloody home insurance thinking “What a waste of money. I’ll help John out here” — and then the dryer exploded.
‘But Nora’s always been like that — a bit flipperty with her attention. Something will grab her attention, and then she’ll completely forget what she’s currently doing.
‘Sometimes accidents will happen and she’ll pour tea accidentally down my head because she forgets the correct way to hold a cup and she’ll be distracted by the television or something.

‘From time to time, I’ll have my inward explosions because sometimes it’s like banging your head against a wall. But then there’ll be what you might call a heated situation and I’ll notice halfway through that she’s winking at me.
‘Moments like that are so genius and rewarding because something in her has clicked and she’ll be teasing me like she’s always done when I’m being a bit saucy!’
The thought of putting his wife into a care facility elicits a typically forthright response. ‘No, no, no!’ he says. ‘That would be horrid. I can’t do that. She’s not a difficult auntie — this is my significant other in life.’
