Another commenter added: “Au contraire, those were truly her salad days.”
The 47-year-old also criticised the UK’s media more widely for treating politics as a “soap opera” and saying much of the reporting is “froth” that fails to engage with “the underlying principles” of current affairs.
“I do think sometimes politics is sort of treated as a branch of the entertainment industry, who’s up, who’s down, who says what about who,” she added.
“I think the level of understanding of economic ideas in the media and the ability to explain them is very poor indeed.”
Economists across the political spectrum heavily criticised Truss’s economic policy while she was in power, including the International Monetary Fund, which is part of the United Nations.
Truss added: “I think the British media are known around the world for being particularly vociferous… I don’t think they’re particularly deferential to politicians.
“Certainly, when I went to international summits I would get a lot of sympathy from politicians from other countries who were saying: ‘My God, your press. What are those people like?’”
But, she admitted that the media’s irreverence is “a good thing on the whole”.
“Although I have suffered, personally, from it, I’d rather live in a country where there is a robust debate than what the alternatives look like.”
