President Donald Trump is apparently trying to sympathize with Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, over the horrid press to which she has been subjected.
“I guess you have to be a little bit different than that, but she takes it very, very personally. I can understand it,” Trump said.
“I’ve been watching her interviews and I’ve seen it and she has been taking it very personally,” the president added during his interview on the London-based talk radio station.
Of course, Trump should know a thing or two about the awful press Markle is receiving, given that he once described her as “nasty” during an interview with British tabloid The Sun.
The Duchess noted that 45 was “divisive” and “misogynistic” during his 2016 presidential campaign, which, one would presume, Trump took “very personally.”
“I didn’t know that. What can I say?” Trump said at the time when asked about Markle’s comments. “I didn’t know that she was nasty.”
Markle has been subject to so many disparaging and racist headlines by a number of U.K. tabloids, that finally she and Prince Harry have put their foot done against the drama, seeking legal action.
“There is a human cost to this relentless propaganda, specifically when it is knowingly false and malicious, and though we have continued to put on a brave face – as so many of you can relate to – I cannot begin to describe how painful it has been,” Prince Harry noted in a statement at the beginning of the month.
