TALKTV host James Max stormed off the set of his own show during a fiery call with a viewer.
The presenter covered his face with a newspaper as he discussed politics with Ken during this morning’s breakfast program in Kent.
Just after 5.30am James said: “I sometimes wonder why I even bother showing up.
“Easy, I don’t know, put 50p in the slot and just let yourself go.”
Confident regular Ken replied: “The good thing is when you show up you get facts from Ken.
“I mean, Ken is telling the truth. It may not please everyone, but it is the reality.”
To do this, James put his head in his hands and then shook his head before Ken continued.
“I have no doubt you’re going to get a couple of callers saying what a bigoted and biased or prejudiced man that is from Tories, but Labor is just as bad,” he added.
“It’s like the local elections. What will change? Nothing.
“The only thing that’s going to change is we end up with some greens, some yellows or oranges or whatever color the liberals say, maybe some reds, which will change the color of blue, but it will change? something? No.”
An impatient James then hid behind a copy of the Times before asking, “Are you done?”
Ken chuckled as he said, “Not quite,” but James cut in, “I thought this was supposed to be a conversation.
“I’ve never been so bored, Ken.”
Minutes later, James said: “I just think if you destroy the legacy of Margaret Thatcher, one of the greatest Prime Ministers we’ve ever had, nobody really wants to hear that, Ken.”
He replied: “It wasn’t James. She stole the children’s milk and then started selling council housing.
James then unplugged his mic, pulled out his earbuds and said: “I’m only going to leave you to talk.
“Are you ready yet? Just go.”
Then, with a dramatic sigh, he left his seat and exclaimed, “That’s enough. ken enough bye
A clip of the exchange shared on TalkTV on Twitter has garnered thousands of views.
Users were divided as to who was at fault, with some siding with James and others urging Ken to “keep calling”.
