Joe Lycett trolls Liz Truss following her resignation

The comedian has played Liz Truss ‘fanboy’ ever since she was elected PM in September

Joe Lycett has hilariously trolled Liz Truss after the prime minister announced she was stepping down.

Truss resigned from her role following a scandalous 24 hours at Westminster.

Lasting just 44 days, she becomes the shortest-serving Prime Minister in British history as a result.

Last month, Lycett sarcastically threw his support behind the Tory leader on Sunday with Laura Kuenssberg.

He claimed that he believed Truss’s promise of support to help cover energy bills amid the cost of living crisis.

“Yeah, she was very clear what she said,” he said. “I think you know exactly what’s going to happen. I’m reassured, you’re reassured.

“I think the haters will say we’ve had 12 years of the Tories, and that we’re sort of at the dregs of what they’ve got available, and that Liz Truss is sort of like the backwash of the available MPs. I wouldn’t say that, because I’m incredibly right-wing, but some people might say that.”

Since then he has unveiled portraits of the outgoing prime minister to demonstrate his faith in her, despite her rocky tenure.

And today he posted the perfect response to her resignation.

The tweet has racked up over 60,000 likes since being posted, with reaction flooding in soon after!
