Is Donald Trump afraid of the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle? We know he has a real issue with strong women, but most often he attacks them. When Prince Harry and his wife did the stunning interview with Oprah, the ex-president did not make a public statement. And this is why.
The ex-president’s senior adviser for the 2020 presidential campaign also served as Trump’s chief spokesperson for the 2016 campaign. Yet, Jason Miller gave away his boss’ reaction to the Oprah interview when he was on the Steve Bannon podcast. He claimed that he had Trump’s permission to “give away a little news.”
But Miller determined that might not be such a good idea. However, he did release one of Trump’s quotes about Meghan, according to The Independent:
‘Yeah, [Meghan’s] no good. I said that and now everybody’s seeing it.’
Miller continued quoting his former boss:
‘But you realize if you say anything negative about Meghan Markle you get canceled. Look at Piers [Morgan].’
Excuse me? Does the Donald have a television show unbeknownst to us? He certainly has been mum on the subject.
The background on this story is that Morgan got up and left the Good Morning Britain show that he hosted last week. He could not handle a little well-deserved criticism.
Morgan had been talking about the actor’s experience of racism inside of the Royal Family that was so bad, that she considered suicide when she was pregnant with their son, Archie. The host said he “didn’t believe a word” of what she said.
Trump told Miller, The Page Six reported:
‘I’m on Team Piers. Piers is the best, he’s the greatest.’
Miller said Trump told him he could ‘make a little news’ by sharing his reaction to the interview – but he ultimately decided it wasn’t a good idea. Miller remembered that experience:
‘When I was talking to the president this morning … he’s like: “Yeah, [Meghan’s] no good. I said that and now everybody’s seeing it. But you realize if you say anything negative about Meghan Markle you get canceled. Look at Piers [Morgan].’
Previously, Trump called Merkle “nasty.” He told Miller:
‘I’m on Team Piers. Piers is the best, he’s the greatest, and they went and tried to cancel him simply because he criticized Meghan Markle. This is just the latest chapter of woke culture [for[ Continuing to trash [Merkle].’
Morgan told reporters:
‘If I have to fall on my sword for expressing an honestly held opinion about Meghan Markle and that diatribe of bilge that she came out within that interview, so be it.’ .
The former host ruled out a return to the show:
‘Those of you that know me well enough know that, despite my many faults, I’m always willing to stand my ground for the things that I think matter most.’
Morgan continued, throwing himself onto the blazing victimhood fire:
‘My fervent opposition to the Iraq War led to my demise from the Daily Mirror. My outspoken views on the insanity of American gun laws led to the end of my time at CNN.
‘And now I’ve lost my job at Good Morning Britain because I chose not to apologise (British Spelling) for disbelieving Meghan Markle’s claims in her interview with Oprah Winfrey.’
Ever the gracious son of Princess Diana, Prince Harry said:
‘We have to have the ability to have compassion and our ability to put ourself in someone else’s shoes. Because when one person buys into negativity online, the effects are felt exponentially. It’s time to not only reflect, but act.’
