“Good Morning Britain” anchor Piers Morgan destroyed an anti-Trump immigration protester by pointing out that she didn’t protest against similar immigration policies by President Barack Obama.

Ash Sarkar told Morgan she was planning on protesting Trump’s visit with British PM Theresa May because of his administration’s immigration policies, specifically the act of separating children at the border.
“I’ll be marching in Westminster tomorrow, alongside thousands of other people who found the policy of border separations unconscionable, who think that the sight of our elected prime minister holding Donald Trump’s hand is an utter embarrassment,” Sarkar said.
“Did you find [President Barack] Obama deporting 3 million people unconscionable?” Morgan shot back.
Sarkar said she did find Obama’s immigration policy “unconscionable” and Morgan grilled her on why she didn’t feel the need to protest when he was in office.
“Where was your protest march against that when he came to the country? It’s double standards. If you find them both unconscionable, and it’s the same issue, you have to march twice, don’t you?” Morgan asserted. “I’d go check out some basic facts about your hero Obama.”
“He’s not my hero. I’m a communist, you idiot,” Sarkar insisted.
