Watch in full: Liz Truss resigns as PM after less than seven …
By the time UK Prime Minister Liz Truss finished giving her resignation speech at a podium in front of Downing Street on Thursday morning, people were already tweeting mockery and jokes about the length of her tenure.
\u201cThe Truss to Scaramucci exchange rate is just what I needed to start this morning. This has to be one of the shortest first world terms that didn\u2019t involve assassination or other sudden death.\u201d
Other people mocked Truss by saying they had food that outlasted her premiership from the infamous head of lettuce to cheese, ice cream, bread, and more.
\u201cFor those keeping score, Liz Truss\u2019s time as PM was\u2026\n\n12 days longer than Ethel Merman\u2019s marriage to Ernest Borgnine\n\n34 days longer than Anthony Scaramucci\u2019s tenure as WH comms director \n\n20 days shorter than the average gestation period for cats\n\nA disaster\u201d
