This Morning Slammed by Viewers for “Cringeworthy” Donald Trump Skit
ITV daytime show This Morning stunned viewers today with a “cringeworthy” Donald Trump skit to welcome the show on air.
Host’s Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford began the programme by welcoming ‘Donald Trump’ to the studio and interviewing him before he becomes the President of the United States.
It was of course not the real Donald Trump, but in fact serial impressionist Mike Osman, who demonstrated his skills with impressions of Michael McIntyre, James Nesbitt and Chris Tarrant.

The show performed a double interview, with an American Donald Trump impressionist speaking live to the UK version in a very “awkward” and “cringeworthy” manner.
Users took to social media with their comments on the skit.
One wrote: “This is so cringeworthy on This Morning. Make it stop @Thismorning #Trump #ThisMorning”
Another added: “where do I complain about your totally unacceptable item on Donald Trump this morning. This was Television at its very worst”
A third commented: “How boring
