Kate Garraway, 53, welcomed former Data Chief and Strategist for President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign Matt Braynard and Biden supporter Eric Guster to Good Morning Britain on Friday. The pair had opposing views on the leader of the free world testing positive for coronavirus after the White House revealed both the 74-year-old and his wife Melania Trump, 50, had contracted the illness after the President’s adviser Hope Hicks also caught the virus. As tensions rose, Guster brought up the fact the President had claimed COVID-19 was a “hoax” back in March, to which his fellow guest fiercely defended the politician. With many interruptions, the ITV host interjected to break up the row.

Throughout the debate, Guster asked Braynard not to “interrupt” him as he made the point the President actively chose not to wear a mask, attending packed rallies where others weren’t also wearing a face covering.
As recently as last month, Trump asked a news reporter to removed his face mask when he was leading a press conference.
However, the Data Chief claimed the likes of presidential candidate Joe Biden, 77, was being “overly cautious” by wearing a mask.
“Joe Biden was still holding mask rallies at the peak of the shut down here in March with no social distancing and no mask,” Braynard explained.
Guster then jumped in as he said his fellow guest was “lying”, reiterating the fact the President claimed the pandemic was a “democratic hoax”.
