The Labour leader gave a rousing speech at the anti-Trump rally during the US President’s state visit. His appearance sparked a debate on the show as to whether the Leader of the Opposition should be protesting against the President of the US. While the panel agreed Mr Corbyn should not have got involved, many audience members labelled it “disgusting” and “ridiculous”.
Piers Morgan said: “He can protest but I’m also entitled to say that protest was embarrassing to this country.”
Audience members were quick to highlight a need for a good relationship with the US as Britain readies itself to leave the EU.
One audience member said: “We’re just trying to leave the EU and never more than now we’re trying to be an outward facing country.
“We’ve got to engage with all over the world outside of Europe and then you have this kind of protest going on with one of the biggest countries in the world that we need to trade with.

“It’s just absolutely ridiculous.”
Another added: “It wasn’t a proper demonstration. It was a disgusting spectacle.
“An effigy of Donald Trump, a US President who was democratically elected, sitting on a toilet in the middle on central London.
“That was disgusting.
“Sadiq Khan should be spending more time trying to control the knife epidemic going on in London than instead of protesting against Trump.”
A third added: “I think protest if all well and good. It’s part of the democracy in which we live.
“But I think Jeremy Corbyn should have met Trump and he should have protested face-to-face with the man rather than on the street.
“That would have made a much more credible Leader of the Opposition.”
