The Good Morning Britain host took to Twitter to share his delight at complaints about Mr Johnson scooping 66 percent of backing from Tory members in the leadership race. He was today crowned leader of the Conservatives and will be Britain’s next Prime Minister today after a meeting with the Queen. Mr Morgan said: “The more the usual insufferably self-righteous, PC-crazed, virtue-signalling liberal snowflake suspects scream with horror about Boris, the more I’m warming to the idea of him as Prime Minister.
“Like Trump, he has a commendable talent for sending them all completely nuts.”
He posted the infamous image of Mr Johnson stuck on a zip-wire from a few years back.
In the image, he is wearing a full suit, blue helmet and waving two Union Jack flags while efforts are made to get him down.
Mr Morgan’s tweet prompted further comparisons to be made between Mr Johnson and President Trump, a close friend of the outspoken host and the new Tory leader.
It emerged a hashtag has been doing the rounds – #NotMyPM – in the hours after the victory for Mr Johnson.
President Trump had a similar one called #NotMyPOTUS when he was elected in 2016.
Replying to Mr Morgan’s tweet, one follower said: “Boris will put some bite back in the bulldog….. a bonus is watching the streets flood with liberal, lefties and assorted muppets tears.”
Another added: “I’m loving the left wing tears.”
Another said: “Boris will be fab!”
A fourth commenter said: “Exactly. The more he triggers snowflakes, the more people thank him for it.”
Another, referring to the zip-wire snap, said: “I love this photo, it gets tweeted out because it is supposed to embarrass us, but it just makes me laugh. So British!”
Mr Johnson is now in the process of assembling his Brexit dream team as he begins his new role as Prime Minister.
Earlier, the new Prime Minister said he would immediately look to press ahead with a series of domestic policies addressing a number of issues Theresa May failed to make much progress on.
They could include a new insurance system for social care, increased funding for schools and tax cuts for high earners.
