Ian Payne embarked on a furious exchange with an LBC caller who attempted to defend Isis schoolgirl Shamima Begum.
Brian from Northern Ireland said the 19-year-old should be allowed back into Britain because she had “not committed a crime”.
“This young lady at the age of 15 was radicalised, she went over to Syria on a fantasy,” the caller said.
At one point, Brian accused the LBC presenter of “making a fool of yourself” as Ian railed against his arguments.
The Home Secretary has warned he “will not hesitate” to block the return of Begum - who run away to Syria four years ago.
Sajid Javid said young Isis brides who travel abroad are “full of hate for our country”.
