    Billionaire and Tesla CEO Elon Musk has waded in to give his thoughts on the Liz Truss vs Lettuce, revealing his love for the mighty Daily Star.

    As readers will no doubt know, a wilting lettuce with googly eyes and legs stolen from Mr. Potato Head has outlasted that of ex-Prime Minister Liz Truss.

    It appears the lettuce has tickled the fancy of the SpaceX founder, who publicly expressed how "good" it really was on Twitter.

    Displaying his love for Daily Star in, of all places, a reply to that of Russia's deputy security council head, Dmitry Medvedev, who had tweeted: "Bye, bye @liztruss, congrats to lettuce."

    His tweet received tens of thousands of likes and retweets, as did Musk, who replied: "Pretty good troll tbh".

    Just eight minutes later, it appeared Musk was mocking the Russian leader as well, asking "how's it going in Bakhmut?" the region of Ukraine that has seen a heavy upheaval in Russian war efforts.
