8 Out of 10 Cats: Susie Dent shares story about Joe Lycett
Countdown host Susie Dent, 56, has sparked a frenzy on Twitter after she seemingly hit out at President Donald Trump, 74, by sharing her “word of the day”. The lexicographer took a thinly veiled swipe at Trump this morning ahead of US President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, as she highlighted the word “exsibilate” in view of her 681,000 followers.
Susie penned: “Word of the day is ‘exsibilate’ (17th century): to hiss a poor performer off the stage.”
It wasn’t long before the star was inundated with responses from social media users, who suggested her word of the day was shared in reference to Trump’s departure from The White House today.
One fan poetically replied: “To the man we’ve endured for four long years and provided us little but grinding gears With an errant word here, and a vile tweet there he’s left us pulling out our hair And while it definitely feels a bit too late we collectively exsibilate.”
Another Twitter user then branded Susie “Queen of Shade”.

A third person commented: “How fitting as the US dumps Trump! Here’s hoping the UK can bounce Boris out of number 10!”
“The classiest shade I’ve ever seen thrown! Susie Dent is a shady queen. The shadiest of them all!” A fourth fan added.
A fifth fan replied: “I’m so glad I follow you. you have an exceptional ability to be subtle, educational, and yet undeniably clear.”
A sixth agreed: “I wonder how many people around the world will be exsibilating at the outgoing impeached x2 US president?”
“Word of the day is ‘genius’. Which is what you are,” another fan gushed.
Last week, Susie caused yet another stir after she appeared to take a swipe at Health Secretary Matt Hancock and his “disastrous” interview with Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain.
It came after the presenter demanded to know whether the minister “regretted” his decision to vote against free school meals for children from poorer families during the coronavirus pandemic, and Mr Hancock seemingly kept avoiding the question.
Meanwhile Susie, appeared to find a very “appropriate” word that many believed was a dig at the government, although there was no confirmation of that from the star.

She wrote: “Word of the day is ‘circumlocutionist’: one who consistently speaks in a roundabout way in order to avoid addressing a question directly.”
It comes following reports that Mr Trump will not attend Biden’s inauguration, making him the first outgoing president to skip the ceremony since Andrew Johnson more than a century and a half ago.
Trump also became the first US president to be impeached twice.
Mr Trump is set to face a Senate trial on a charge of “incitement of insurrection” for the US Capitol violence.
It has also been reported by US media that Mr Biden is planning on reversing several of Trump’s policies as soon as he arrives in office this week.
Mr Biden is said to be planning on issuing decrees to reverse President Trump’s travel bans and re-join the Paris climate accord on his first day.
The president-elect is also expected to focus on reuniting families separated at the US-Mexico border, and to issue rules on Covid-19 and mask-wearing.
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will take the oath to make them officially US president and vice-president, but the event will be scaled back, due to Covid and the recent riots.
