WATCH: Conservative MP calls Boris Johnson adviser a ‘foul-mouthed oaf’ in live televised rant

Published

on

A Conservative Member of Parliament is calling out a top adviser to Prime Minister Boris Johnson for trying to bully members of his own party into backing Johnson’s plan to leave the European Union without a trade deal.

During an interview on the BBC Wednesday, Conservative MP Sir Roger Gale said that Johnson special adviser Dominic Cummings was a “foul-mouthed oaf” who had no business serving the government.

“I think that fact that you have, at the heart of [10 Downing Street], as the prime minister’s senior adviser, an unelected foul-mouthed oaf throwing his weight around is completely unacceptable,” he said. “I think that if the prime minister doesn’t have Dominic Cummings, the man I’m talking about, frog-marched out of Downing Street himself, then the chances are that it will not be the ‘Tory Rebels,’ as they’re called, it won’t be [Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn], it will be Mr. Cummings that will bring down this administration.”

BBC host Victoria Derbyshire asked Gale if he really believed that, and he didn’t hesitate to reply that he did.

“Yes, it is a very, very dangerous situation indeed, and it has to stop,” he said.

President Donald Trump attacked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) from the White House on Tuesday.

As impeachment testimony was underway in the House, Trump told reporters in a Cabinet meeting that Pelosi is "grossly incompetent."

The president also said that Republicans are "killing it" in the impeachment hearings.

But Trump took a shot at Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, an expert on Ukraine who was testifying at the time.

"I don't know him. ... I never saw the man," he said. "I understand now he wears his uniform when he goes in. No, I don't know Vindman at all. What I do know is that even he said that the transcript was correct."

"Let’s Stop Pretending Every Impeachment Witness Is A Selfless Hero," Trump Jr. tweeted, quoting the piece's headline.
