Ugh, we can’t believe Prince Harry had lunch with Donald Trump after his disgusting comments about the man’s wife!
The POTUS’ state visit to the U.K. began on Monday, and everything went exactly as planned.
The President and First Lady Melania Trump were greeted by Prince Charles and Camilla, with an 82 gun salute and everything, before meeting Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II for a visit to the Picture Gallery.
As gag-inducing as that would be on any day, this time it was especially horrible given
For those who haven’t yet heard, Trump was being interviewed for conservative-owned U.K. paper The Sun, when the journalist casually threw out some of the Duchess of Sussex’s critical words about the POTUS.
Obviously she is no longer allowed to espouse political views now that she’s a Royal — this was back when she was a private U.S. citizen posting on social media.
“I didn’t know she was nasty.”
He actually said this. About a member of the Royal family!
Apparently someone explained to him how bad it was after the fact because he did the closest thing he does to apologizing — denying the whole thing and blaming “FAKE NEWS.”
“I never called Meghan Markle ‘nasty.’ Made up by the Fake News Media, and they caught cold! Will @CNN, @nytimes and others apologize? Doubt it!”
First off, no idea what they would need to apologize for, as it was The Sun which did the interview.
Second, his campaign also tweeted out an official denial, which included an audio recording to prove what Trump really said.
Which was EXACTLY WHAT HE WAS QUOTED AS SAYING!
The account even spelled it out with a transcript:
Seriously, this is not a parody account! Do they not know how “proof” works??
Watch the video for yourself!
Fake News CNN is at it again, falsely claiming President Trump called Meghan Markle "nasty." Here is what he actually said. Listen for yourself! pic.twitter.com/kLuPXBLMhf
So yeah. It’s not a denial the Royal family could take seriously — but it was apparently enough of a façade to go through with the visit as planned.
Or maybe the political rules are so strict they can’t even take umbrage at being insulted?
Harry did go to that private lunch, and to the exhibition of U.S. items from the Royal Collection afterward — though he reportedly walked away from the Trumps immediately and spoke to Earl Peel, the Lord Chamberlain instead.
Meghan is not allowed to say anything about Trump, but as a brand new mom she had the perfect excuse not to dine with the man as though he were a normal world leader and not the disastrous danger to democracy he is. She’d already planned to stay home.
Considering such an insult to his wife, we hoped Harry would join Meghan in her protest snub. Er, we mean at home with baby Archie. (WINK!)
He was always the rebellious one, so we really did think there was a chance.
It seems to us Harry chose duty over gallantry after all.
What would you want your partner to do if YOU had just been insulted so publicly??
