A few weeks ago, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry gave Oprah Winfrey an explosive interview. The former Duchess of Sussex made allegations of racism against some members of the royal family.
And the claims in the interview drove Piers Morgan insane. Thanks to his coverage of the event, Morgan was removed as the host of Good Morning Britain.
Morgan spoke to Tucker Carlson about the experience during a Monday interview. He whined to the Fox host that Markle doesn’t have the same standards as Donald Trump.
The British talk show host lamented: “Me don’t believe Meghan Markle. I had to believe her. And if I didn’t, then I was a calloused racist and I should be convicted and ultimately lose my job as it turned out later that day. And I think that’s a pretty dangerous slope. “
Morgan then called Trump and said:
“It was Meghan’s way and Meghan’s story and Meghan’s truth. This phrase was actually used by Oprah Winfrey. This is your truth. What does that mean? When did we come to your truth? This has the kind of defense for which – we hear liberals attack Donald Trump to reinvent tracts. To create your own truth. But when Meghan Markle does, the same liberals who attack Donald Trump cheer and applaud saying that this is their truth and it must be believed and if you don’t believe it you are a racist. I’m sorry, I am not a racist. I just don’t believe her. “

Morgan’s complaints about the culture’s cancellation will likely land on the people who read Fox News. But they won’t end up anywhere else. The talk show host has a long history of controversy and this time it seems he is finally facing ramifications for his actions.
