Prominent Donald Trump surrogate and South Carolina evangelical televangelist Pastor Mark Burns had his microphone cut off MSNBC’s “AM Joy” after continuing to talk over host Joy Reid while refusing to answer her questions.

Pastor Burns has been attempting to use the Bible to rationalize Trump’s “sh*thole” comments, devolving a panel on CNN’s “Out Front with Erin Burnett” on Friday into a shouting match.

Britain's main opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn apologised Sunday for waging a disastrous campaign that handed Prime Minister Boris Johnson a mandate to take the UK out of the EU next month.
