RUSSIAN President Vladimir Putin is "loving the chaos" amid Boris Johnson's resignation, according to English broadcaster Piers Morgan.

During Thursday's episode of Fox and Friends, Fox Nation's Uncensored host Piers Morgan commented British PM Boris Johnson's announcement to step down.

Morgan said: "The one person loving all this chaos, both in the UK and US, and all the uncertainty … is Vladimir Putin.

"This all plays right into his hands. This is what he wants to see, countries that should be united to try and stop this rampage through Ukraine actually splintering into complete chaos.

"This is a really bad time for us to be going through this." 

The 57-year-old TV personalist also likened it to the "situation in America right now … with a very weak president and an even weaker vice president."

He added: "So if you're Putin – you're licking your lips in all of this."

Morgan mentioned the phrase that he and others use for Johnson is "greasy piglet."

"Imagine a particularly greasy piglet. That's what he's like," Morgan explained on the weekly morning news show.

"Every time you catch him he sneaks away. He's slithering away. And he's done this throughout his entire career."

In Morgan's eyes, Johnson is "trying to buy as much time as he can."

As a race is underway to replace Johnson as Tory leader and British prime minister, Johnson says he will remain in his post until a new leader is appointed.

Morgan also slammed Johnson for "trying to limp on like the ultimate greasy pig until late October.

After explaining how the process of electing a new leader is "pretty straightforward," Morgan noted how parliament takes a break for the summer.

"We wouldn't have a new leader before September, possibly October, and it just seems to most people here completely ridiculous," Morgan said, referring to how Boris said he will continue to work until a new leader is chosen.

Morgan said many of his own ministers have "quit in the past 24 hours because they think he should go."

On July 7, 2022, Johnson told the nation he is resigning as Prime Minister and clearing the stage for a new Tory leader by the autumn.

In an address outside No10, the defeated PM said he was so "sad" to be forced out of the job he loves but conceded: "Them's the breaks."

He said it had been an "immense privilege" to serve in the "best job in the world" but admitted that "no one is remotely indispensable".

Two years and 348 days since he first entered No10 in 2019, the PM today called The Queen to tell her he planned to stand down.

In a packed Downing Street, thronged with supporters including Carrie and baby Romy, he thanked the millions who voted for him in a historic landslide.

Yet after a brutal Cabinet coup he said: "In Westminster the herd instinct is powerful and when the herd moves, it moves.

"And my friends in politics, no one is remotely indispensable."

He said he was "immensely proud of the achievements of this government" such as Brexit and the vaccine rollout.

And the PM confessed: "I want you to know how sad I am to be giving up the best job in the world. But them's the breaks."
