Meghan Markle blasted as ‘completely delusional’ by Piers Morgan
And in the end, free speech was more of the issue
The bombastic Brit has remained on the attack against Markle and her hubby Prince Harry ever since their infamous pally chat with Oprah Winfrey.
In that interview, Markle made a slew of explosive claims about the Royal family but the following morning, Morgan called nonsense.On Monday night, he sat down for a long interview with Tucker Carlson on Fox News, slamming for the former Suits actress as the “delusional duchess.”
Morgan — a former TV host and top editor at three of London’s tabloids — said Markle needs to name the senior royals who made racist comments and were indifferent to her claims of being suicidal.
“You’re accusing … people in the palace of being unspeakably cruel simply to protect the brand of the Royal family. If that is true, let’s have the names of these people, and let’s go to them and ask them is this true,” Morgan told Carlson.
“Did you tell a suicidal woman who told you she was suicidal she was not allowed to get help? Because I find that impossible to believe.”
He added: “Here we are a month later, and frankly — I’ve had plenty of time to think about this — I still don’t believe any of what they were saying.”
Morgan said 17 “different claims” by the posh pair “have now been proven to be either completely untrue or massively exaggerated or unprovable.”
“There are so many ridiculous whoppers in this interview that frankly, in the end, saying I would believe her would be like saying I believe Pinocchio. Why would I?”
After making his incendiary comments in the wake of the Winfrey interview, Morgan was attacked by the “woke brigade” and “liberal bullies”.
And in the end, free speech was more of the issue.
“It’s not really about Meghan Markle — she’s a delusional duchess who wants to make millions off the Royals while trashing family,” Morgan said. “It’s really about free speech.”
Morgan also mocked Markle’s claim that Archie, the couple’s son, was denied security and a royal title because he is of mixed-race.
“It’s not just a sense of her lived experience being untrue, it is factually incorrect,” Morgan said.
“That boy was never going to be a prince until Prince Charles, Harry’s father, becomes king on the death of the queen. So for Meghan Markle to try and create a story that says that the decision to not make Archie the title of prince was based on his skin color is a lie.”
He added that he walked off the set of his popular talk show, Good Morning Britain, because of a “growing sense” that “if you didn’t believe Meghan on everything you were a racist.”
For his party, Morgan said he would not be “bullied by the woke brigade” and quit the show.“
On a fundamental point of principle, I’m not going to apologize for not believing Meghan Markle.”
