It was really just a matter of time, wasn't it
With so many critics out there slamming Meghan Markle left, right and everywhere in between... does it really come as a shock that Donald Trump would eventually get in on the act?
During a visit to Great Britain this week, the mentally-damaged 72-year-old President was reminded of something Markle said back during the 2016 general election.
With a handful of reporters in the room, Trump was questioned about the Duchess of Sussex’s past criticism of him, with one journalist relaying exactly what Markle threatened to do about two years ago.
“She said she’d move to Canada if you got elected,” this person told Trump in an interview published by The Sun today. “Turned out she moved to Britain.”
The remark drew a bit of laughter in the room.
President Trump, however, said he was unaware that the new mother said anything of the sort, adding:
“I didn’t know that she was nasty,” he replied.
Here is the full transcript of the exchange:
Trump, as perhaps you remember, previously used the term “nasty woman” to describe his 2016 opponent Hillary Clinton.
This is an adjective he seems to only reserve for members of the opposite sex. We'll let you go ahead and try to figure out why.
According to various outlets, meanwhile, Markle refused to meet with Trump during his visit to her adopted country, choosing instead (we assume) to hang out at home with husband Harry and new baby son Archie.
Trump did go on to note the benefits of having an American in the Royal Family.
“I think it’s nice, and I’m sure she’ll do excellently,” the Commander-in-Chief said. “She’ll be very good.”
Buckingham Palace had no comment on Trump's interview regarding Markle.
Markle, for her part, remains on maternity leave.
Not only isn't she meeting with Trump, she isn't meeting with anyone these days. She has no professional obligations on her calendar for the forseeable future.
The former actress and perpetually-polarizing personality gave birth just under a month ago to her first-ever child.
She debuted little Archie for the world to see two days later, but has remained totally out of the public eye ever since. And for good reason, right?
Considering all the frickin crap written about Markle on a nearly daily basis, we wouldn't blame the Duchess if she went underground and almost never emerged again.
At some point, however, it's safe to say we will hear from Meghan and we will see Meghan again.
But we highly doubt she'll respond to Trump's latest bit of sexist bitterness.
He simply isn't worth any of her time.
