‘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.”
