Last Sunday, Oprah Winfrey conducted an interview with Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle. In the bombshell talk, Markle revealed instances of racism in the Royal Family. The interview became the hottest topic in the news over the next few days.
British broadcaster Piers Morgan was eager to discuss the situation. And he was ripped in the news as well as by a colleague. Later in the week, it was revealed that he would no longer be hosting Good Morning Britain. And this reportedly angered Donald Trump.
Jason Miller, a spokesperson for for the former president addressed the topic during a recent appearance on Steve Bannon’s podcast. He told Bannon:
“‘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].'”
It’s not surprising that Trump would be bothered by Morgan’s firing. The two men are close. And, of course, cancel culture has been a daily topic on Fox News. But Morgan was cancelled for his actions, which is something that Conservative media sources can’t seem to understand.
