The Sunday Express columnist compared the controversial figure to Speakers of the past, who have spoken of the importance of an impartial figure in the British parliament.
Speaker Bercow has come under heavy criticism after he gave a Commons speech to MPs, claiming as a “keyholder” he would block the President from addressing the House.
“Before the imposition of the migrant ban I would myself have been strongly opposed to an address by President Trump in Westminster Hall,” He said. “After the imposition of the migrant ban by President Trump I am even more strongly opposed to an address by President Trump in Westminster Hall.”
His speech opposing President Trump’s “sexism and racism” was met by cheers from SNP and Labour MPs, while the Conservative benches were largely silent.
Nick Ferrari railed against John Bercow's attack on Donald Trump
John Bercow just loves the sound of his own voice, doesn’t he?
Discussing the matter on his LBC show, Mr Ferrari said: “This is what speakers used to be like.
“The most famous speaker of all was probably William Lethal, who in 1642 defied the King in defence of parliamentary authority – an event that helped bring about the civil war.
“He told Charles I: ‘I have neither eyes to see, nor the tongue to speak in this place. But as the House is pleased to direct me.’
“That is the role of the speaker. More recently you turn to Bernard Weatherill, who preceded Betty Boothroyd, so that’s about four speakers ago.
“He once famously said ‘I don’t think the Speaker is the star. Parliament should be a forum, not a stage.’
“If only someone could tell that to John Bercow, who just loves the sound of his own voice, doesn’t he?
“And self-importance. Oh my goodness.”

Conservative MP Nadine Dorries told the BBC: “When he loses support for what was a very partisan moment I think his position will become more and more in jeopardy.
“It’s about what the people want and I think if people make enough stink out there I think his position could be in jeopardy.”

President Trump Meets With British PM Theresa May At The White House
Former Culture Secretary John Whittingdale accused Speaker Bercow of “playing to the gallery” in the pursuit of “publicity”.
Speaking on Sky News, he said: “It was a performance, it was John Bercow playing to the gallery and I think it was damaging to the national interest. I think it is regrettable that he did it.”
Labour Remainer Stephen Kinnock, however, suggested that the Speaker was simply attempting to send a message to Theresa May warning her not to be “desperate” while seeking a post-Brexit trade deal.
“I think in the wake of Brexit, what we have here is a real risk of the United Kingdom looking both isolated and desperate,” he said.
“I think what John Bercow did yesterday was send a very clear message to our Government.”
