Piers Morgan Happy to Die on ‘Freedom of Speech’ Hill After Firing Over Meghan Markle Commentary

Former Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan isn’t backing down from his accusations that he didn’t “believe a word” of the Duchess of Sussex’s accusations of racism and bullying from the Royal Family.    

“I believe in freedom of speech. I believe in the right to be allowed to have an opinion. If people want to believe Meghan Markle, that’s entirely their right,” Morgan commented to a crowd of reporters on Wednesday. “ I don’t believe almost anything that comes out of her mouth and I think the damage she’s done to the British monarchy, and to the Queen, at a time when Prince Philip is lying in hospital, is enormous and frankly contemptible.”

“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,” he concluded.   

Morgan stirred controversy on Monday, when he questioned if Meghan Markle was telling Oprah Winfrey the truth when she revealed that the senior royals discouraged her from seeking help for her mental health when she was having suicidal thoughts.  

“Who did you go to?” Morgan remarked. “What did they say to you? I’m sorry, I don’t believe a word she said, Meghan Markle. I wouldn’t believe it if she read me a weather report.” 

The comments garnered immense backlash and Morgan was expected to apologize on Tuesday’s show, but doubled down instead. “I don’t believe what Meghan Markle is saying generally in this interview, and I still have serious concerns about the veracity of a lot of what she said.”

Morgan’s colleague Alex Beresford defended Markle, turning the tables on Morgan. “I understand you’ve got a personal relationship with Meghan Markle, or had one, and she cut you off. She’s entitled to cut you off if she wants to. Has she said anything about you since she cut you off? I don’t think she has but yet you continue to trash her.”

To which Morgan replied, “OK, I’m done with this, sorry, no, can’t do this,” before storming off the set. By Tuesday night, UK communication regulator Ofcom received 41,000 complaints, and launched an investigation into if his comments infringed on the harm and offence clause of broadcasting code.

Agreed. Besides her mouth, her wagging tongue, and tail, along with her deposits at the toilets, what can she really run?

Translation: she lies like a dog. She would lie with a dog just to get knocked up in order to sell the poor issue from body for money. This thing is beyond help.

The lie that stood out the most – -“the institution would not let her seek help when she was feeling suicidal”! (Ohhh, boo hoo hoo). I do remember when Princess Diana was having a crisis, while Charlie was messing with Camilla (during his marriage to Diana); Diana did receive professional counseling and there was NO brouhaha about that, so mucky meg is “full of it”. A plain, undisguised gold-digger, who wants to control her husband and destroy his relationship with his own family, especially his brother, Wills. Totally shameful and I hope Harry wakes up soon.

Poor harry, he hasn’t got a clue that he’s being played, and too cowardly to take a stand for his own flesh and blood even he’d figure it out. Question is how a mousy little creature like d-listed want-to-be could wield so much power over him, he used to seem to have a brain.

If and when Harry does wake up, that will be the end of that marriage and the ones who will suffer the most will be little Archie and his soon to be sibling.

Piers Morgan is a conservative pundit? That’s news to me, but it seems that anyone to the right of the extreme left is labeled conservative these days.

I don’t believe for a moment that either the Democrat Party or the Republican Party cares one bit that Sarah Silverman doesn’t want to be associated with them. In my humble opinion, she doesn’t seem to have a real stance on anything important regarding the political world. But rather just has always projected a dislike for the Republicans and I would gladly bet $1000 if she were asked to give a defined reason for that stance, her answer would be hysterically goofy. Now since there’s just no where to hide regarding the corruption within the Democrat Party since all of their BS has now been fulled exposed, it seems to me that Sarah is completely dismantled over THAT TRUTH. The Trump supporters have known for years what Sarah now cannot accept. So, I say…what the hell ever. I know of nothing that she has ever said or done that would make her political opinions be of any value anyway. And I’m aware that Sarah’s mother’s maiden name is O’Hara…hopefully we are not actually related.

The problem that Markle had when living with the Royals wasn’t Racial it was the Fact that she wasn’t the center of everyone’s attention. Prince Charles is the next in line for the throne, then his son William and then William’s First Son George, then his Daughter Charlotte and then his Son Louis. There would have to be some kind of major tragedy for Harry to become King. So although Harry is very much a Royal in the Line of Succession he is just Prince Charles’s other son. So, Poor, Ms. Markle didn’t get the attention she felt she deserved and had a fit. So in order to get some kind of recognition, she goes on TV and sheds a few tears, and throws out the ever-popular Race Card. Everyone hates me because I am Black. Actually, people hate her because she is a useless movie star who is only interested in herself and can’t stand it when she is not the center of attention.
