During the interview, Morgan maintained that she did not believe Meghan, claiming that the statements that she and Prince harryPrince Harry Kaluuya on SNL: The Royal Family Was ‘Concerned’ That Meghan and Harry’s Baby Look Like Him Tucker Carlson To Broadcast Piers Morgan’s Interview On Fox’s Streaming Service Why The Deranged Brigade Awakens Is Deep threat to our freedom MORE all have been proven to be false or exaggerated, although he did not provide information to support this claim.
“I was an outrage. I was not allowed to have an opinion that he did not believe what he was saying, even though it was clear to me in real time as I watched the interview that there were a number of things that could not be true. Morgan told host Tucker Carlson in recounting the moment he left the Good Morning Britain set after being challenged by meteorologist Alex Beresford.
Morgan accused Beresford of carrying out a “premeditated attack”, although he said he should not have left the set and called his decision to do so “stupid.”
“I was angry at the time that he was trying to personalize this, make him have a personal vendetta over Meghan markleMeghan MarkleKaluuya on SNL: Royal Family Was ‘Concerned’ Meghan and Harry’s Baby Look Like Him Why The Unhinged Brigade Awake Is A Deep Threat To Our Freedom Piers Morgan Writes In Daily Mail About Recent Scandals, Defends to Sharon Osbourne after her Talk get out MORE, I do not. And I came back. And then we had a pretty lively and enlightening discussion, about half an hour, on this, “Morgan said.
Carlson played a clip from Meghan’s interview with Winfrey in which she said she told several people at the palace that she was struggling with mental health issues, including suicidal thoughts.
Morgan acknowledged that she couldn’t tell whether or not she was lying about her mental health, but instead said she didn’t believe her claims that she was told not to seek help.
“I find it impossible to believe that there are two people in the palace who would be so insensitive to a woman that she told them she was suicidal,” Morgan said. “But also, there is Prince Harry’s position in all of this. He is linked to many of the largest mental health charities in Britain. “
The former morning show host said he did not believe Meghan is a “terrible victim of racist oppression” and said that “she is either completely deluded or deliberately lying.”
Morgan also took aim at Winfrey, accusing her of not questioning the claims Meghan and Harry made during the interview.
“ANDYou know, my problem with this entire interview was that these incredibly damaging allegations were dismissed and none of them were properly challenged. None of them were challenged based on actual reality or none of them were asked, well, who is this person, “Morgan added.
Morgan also shared details about her decision to leave the ITV show, saying it boiled down to her refusal to apologize for her comments about Meghan.
“I should be able to be a journalist and question the veracity of those statements. And frankly, I should be able to enter a democracy that values freedom of expression, I should be able to say, I’m sorry, I don’t think so.” But I wasn’t. He wasn’t allowed to do that, “Morgan said.
