One Nation leader Pauline Hanson has told Derryn Hinch to "go back to New Zealand" in an explosive live television appearance.
Hanson and independent Senator Hinch exchanged barbs on Channel 7's Sunrise program this morning.
Hanson was detailing what she had achieved with former PM Malcolm Turnbull when Hinch interjected to cast doubt over her claims.
"I could speak to Malcolm Turnbull and he'd listen to what I'd have to say and I got a lot done, I've got to say that," she said.
"But I think he's the type of person who would have taken this personally to actually be thrown out."
Hinch cut in with "What have you done Pauline?"
The discussion became outright aggressive with Hanson claiming Hinch is "half asleep most of the damn time" and telling him to "get on the next flight out of the country."
Hinch said in response that telling people to leave Australia was Hanson's "usual thing" and it was "puerile, stupid."
Hanson said Hinch needed to "Go back to New Zealand and pick up your manners Derryn, and then come back when you've got some manners."
Hinch was born in New Plymouth and is an Australian Senator for Victoria, after building a successful career as a media personality.

Hanson: And I could speak to Malcolm Turnbull and he'd listen to what I'd have to say and I got a lot done, I've got to say that, but I think he's the type of person who would have taken this personally to actually be thrown out.
Hinch: What have you done Pauline?
Hanson: Derryn I'm not spending the program like this, I could go on with a lot …

Hinch: You voted, Pauline you voted against medicinal cannabis, you voted against medicinal cannabis, the Greens and I voted in favour of it and you and your colleagues voted against it. I was shocked. Remember that.
