A Jordanian member of parliament flipped out during a live TV debate and pulled a gun on his opponent.
MP Mohammad Shawabka was debating with political activist Mansour Sayf al Din Murad on the private satellite channel Jo Sat, discussing Jordanian politics.
Both men accused the other of various crimes.
“You’re a Mossad agent,” said the activist, to which the other replied, “You’re a big crook.”
The MP then stood up and began shouting at the activist. The host, Mohammad Habashneh, who was sitting between them, urged his guests to “calm down”.
Instead, the MP took off his right shoe and threw it at Murad, before pulling out a silver pistol from his waistband and pointing it towards the activist.
The opponents then left their seats, confronting one another, while the host tried to calm them down.
The two men continued to struggle as the program ended and the credits ran.
