It is not the first time the controversial broadcaster has been mocked in recent weeks. Last month, he bought himself a single plank of wood from Home Depot in protest at calls to boycott the company over its stance towards Georgia’s controversial new voting law.

He was also mocked recently after he claimed 4C of global warming was not an emergency.
