Viewers feel sick after Liz Truss answers what’s the naughtiest thing she’s ever done

In true Liz Truss fashion, the Tory leadership frontrunner gave a rather unclear answer when asked about the 'naughtiest thing she's ever done' - but her answer has left viewers feeling sick, nonetheless. Check it out:
While Sky News' Kay Burley served up plenty of tough questions during their 90-minute Battle for Number 10 special, she decided to bring the mood up by referencing the infamous viral moment when former PM Theresa May was asked the exact same thing.
May's answer went down in meme history after she suggested the naughtiest thing she'd ever done was 'run through fields of wheat' as a child.
Not wanting to appear quite so out of touch, Truss tried to swerve any opportunity for the internet to rip into her by saying: "I'm certainly not going to say that on TV."
"Oh, is it that naughty?" asked Burley, to which Truss replied: "Well my daughters are watching, so I don't want them getting any ideas."
Though she might have assumed she nailed her response, the online community thinks otherwise, with one Twitter user sharing the clip alongside a vomiting emoji.
Another just wrote out the word 'vomit', while a third said: "Don’t bring the kids into this!"
Others, of course, took the opportunity to bring up the May debacle, including this person who said: "She didn't just run though that field of wheat."
A second quipped: "Bring back fields of wheat."
Truss was described as the 'female Alan Partridge', while some brought up the high-profile affair she had with then-Tory MP Mark Field back in 2006.
Elsewhere in the interview, Burley fired a few shots at Truss' changing viewpoints throughout her political career.
Towards the end of their Q&A, the reporter said: "You were a Remainer and now you're not. You supported Brits to fight in Ukraine, then you didn't. You wanted to build on the Green Belt, now you don't. You wanted to abolish the monarchy, and now you don't.
"You wanted to arm Taiwan, and now I'm not sure if you're saying whether you do or not. You wanted to cut civil servants' pay in the regions, and then you said you didn't. Will the real Liz Truss please stand up?"
After a burst of laughter from the crowd, Truss tries her best to explain her ever-evolving opinions, claiming that she believes in 'freedom' before adding: "Show me somebody who has the same views at 19 and 49."
Pretty sure she wasn't 19 when Brexit was going down, but there we go.
