‘That poor duchess’: Tucker Carlson mocks ‘oppressed’ Meghan Markle following Oprah interview

Recent allegations against the British royal family by Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, have led to widespread discussion across the U.K. and beyond.

For Fox News host Tucker Carlson, the controversy has highlighted a reversal of the longstanding order of things by pressuring ordinary citizens to feel sorry for the rich and powerful.

“That’s never happened before”

Carlson weighed in on the aftermath of the couple’s recent interview with Oprah Winfrey, which he said encapsulated the supposed victim mentality of an elitist ruling class.

The Fox host mocked Markle as a “narcissist” for portraying herself as an “oppressed victim” who had been “silenced” by the royal family despite having amassed wealth, privilege, and a platform from which she can discuss her grievances — which include a dispute over dresses with sister-in-law Kate Middleton.

“Stop the presses,” the host said, according to Fox. “She and her sister-in-law had a tiff about clothes. That’s never happened before.”

Carlson went on to criticize Markle for believing that the incident was “important enough to bring up in a television interview,” sarcastically describing it as “her 9/11, so of course, she considers it newsworthy.”

Of course, Carlson made it clear that he does not believe Markle is alone in exhibiting such narcissism, pointing to Winfrey as one of the elites who have embraced victimhood as a cudgel. “Oprah’s worth more than a billion dollars, but she knows the pain because she sees herself as a victim, too,” he asserted.

“Not allowed to make fun of this”

By the same token, the host argued that the rich and powerful have created an environment where ordinary folks are “not allowed” to criticize them. Even longtime British anchor Piers Morgan was pushed out of his job after criticizing Markle’s scandalous allegations toward the royal family.

“You’re not allowed to make fun of this, and you’re definitely not allowed to mock the oppressed duchess,” Carlson said. “Rich people are oppressed, period. And if you claim otherwise, they will use their total powerlessness to get you fired.”

For critics like Carlson, the recent interview offered a glimpse into the world of a ruling elite so self-absorbed that it fails to notice or care that the rest of the world is falling apart.

“‘That poor duchess,’ you think to yourself, ‘I hope she’s OK,'” Carlson remarked snidely.

“Of course, she should be thinking that very thing about you,” he concluded, “but she’s not.”

  1. Before Megan jumped in BED with Prince Harry, she should of understood her role, and asked questions, can’t start BELLYACHING, after the facts, once you got the royal CHORIZO in you, it was too late, beg for a divorce and move on or just stop your whimpering, and whining

  3. I notice Oprah Winfrey interviewed the” poor success”. Helping make $7000000 Opie one of the rich and powerful!

  4. You are so right. And I believe Marble should be ashamed of herself for airing her dirty laundry on national tv. I also can see her as controlling and user of people to get the attention she wants. This is how I have seen her from day one.

  5. You have it right, as usual and we all know it to be true. POOR RICH NARCISTIC SELF ABSORBED EX- ACTRESS. ACTUALLY, SHE REALLY SHOWED HOW TO DO IT AND MAY WIN A GOLDEN GLOBE. I really don’t think that normal people care about what the super rich know or say. They live so far above us that we are lucky that we can breath the same air.

    Harry is like a lost puppy following his owner no matter what this is going to cost him. It won’t cost her anything remember she is trying for a award but it will cost him his family, the military that he loves so much and his dignity.

  6. Megan markle is so jealous, she never tried to fit in, to her it’s the highway if she can’t change them. Kate did try, missy would not try to learn, she just wanted it her way.

  7. Tucker is right on the money! Markle is a spoiled, self absorbed, greedy disgrace! She didn’t marry the boy next door. She set her cap for a royal and married one but has spent every minute since then destroying his life. Now she’s blaming race & mental health…it’s not true at all. The British spent millions welcoming her and now she accuses them of being racist which only proves that she is the only racist! She can’t hold a candle to Diana in any way…she doesn’t have the looks, grace or intelligence. Extra security is not needed…nobody cares!

  8. Megan Markle thought she would be top dog because she was an American t.v. Actress! She didn’t want to follow royal protocol, thought she could do as she pleased. The queen showed her otherwise. She is jealous of Princess Kate, and her children, because they are “ titled” as princes and princess, as they should be since their father is next in line for the throne. The queen bequeaths the titles, as is royal custom. Megan found out she can’t bully the queen, so—- she will accuse “ racism”, further separating Prince Harry from his family. Very sad for him.

  9. When is someone going to notice that Prince William and Hairy Harry look like they had different Fathers
    One of Diana’s lovers sure looks like he is the Father.
    Harry would not be in the Royal blood line.
    Too bad Gold Digger, you slept with the wrong Brother
    Bring on DNA testing.

  10. Markle, Harry and Oprah are the racists here!!! In the 21st century we are used to see the children of inter-racial marriages …. they are a mixture of colours in some cases and on some cases they are not ….. didn’t the two idiots think about it before marrying each other…. that their kids could be black or brown or neither…. the point is moot…. and why is it so important to Winfrey to make a big deal about it…… oh, as this is all about this WOKE thing…. Markle and Winfrey are friends and this is all a publicity stunt to rake in the money ….. it would behoove us all to ignore all these morons and carry on with our lives about which no one cares…. thank you Tucker for driving this home to us…..

I specifically appreciate the way you’ve been able to stick so much thought into a relatively short post (comparitively) which creates it an thoughtful publish on your subject. In my opinion, you’ve presented the topic in a quite thorough yet concise manner, that is genuinely useful when somebody wants to get the facts without spending too a lot time searching the web and sifting out the noise to discover the answers to their questions.
