National MP Barnaby Joyce lashed out at Sam Armytage on Sunrise after accusing his party of not doing enough to tackle Australia's drought.

She interviewed Mr. Joyce on Monday morning and asked if Michael McCormack was a & # 39; good (national) leader & # 39; was and claimed & # 39; the rural dwellers were abandoned & # 39 ;.

But after Armytage said that one nation leader, Pauline Hanson, was the only politician to stand up for the dairy industry, Mr. Joyce exploded.

& # 39; That's nonsense! That is nonsense! That is nonsense! We have developed the dairy code. We have developed the sugar code. We came in with a drought package, & he said.

& # 39; We are fighting for the dams. We actually do it, because we have the guts to sit on the cupboard and fight for it!

& # 39; We are not in the coffee shop and shout and shout like a funfair. We actually come to the place where we can make things happen. & # 39;

Armytage and its co-host Natalie Barr have repeatedly questioned Mr. Joyce about Mr. McCormack's leadership across the segment.

But Mr. Joyce seemed to avoid questions about whether the Nationals think Mr. McCormack a & # 39; good leader & # 39; and whether there is & # 39; leadership rumbling & # 39; was in the party.

& # 39; The rural residents feel let down by the fact that the Nats are not lagging behind here, that the money for the drought production is taking too long to roll out, that the Nats are not defending their countrymen, what is going on? & # 39 ; Armytage early.

& # 39; Well, I see the pressure of the drought every day. I mean, I live there. And you can see it behind me, imagine you wake up and see that, & Mr. 39 from Armidale replied with smoke from bushfire behind him.

& # 39; Where is Michael McCormack? Why isn't he doing more? & # 39; Armytage asked afterwards.

Mr. Joyce defended Mr. McCormack and said he & # 39; the best job he can & # 39; does and works within the limits of the government & # 39 ;.

Barr also asked Mr. Joyce during the segment: & # 39; But Barnaby, there are leadership rumblings is the question. & # 39;

& # 39; Are there leadership grumbles between the leader and deputy leader? & # 39;

After the fiery exchange of Mr. Joyce with Armytage, Barr then resorted to asking again if the Nationals were satisfied with his leadership.

He replied: & # 39; We make sure we send the agenda, yes, because we just want to focus on people.

& # 39; We want to make sure that their result is our job, that's what we do. & # 39;
