The couple’s popularity has plummeted because they shirked the one thing Americans truly care about: hard work.
I quite understand if you don't like them anymore, but please, please, don't send them back to Canada. Our current prime minister is cut from the same cloth, and we have enough to cope with trying to survive him.
We can thank South Park’s “Worldwide Privacy Tour” for making it permissible, finally, to criticize these dishonest, venal grifters.
Holding my breath waiting for TPF to publish “The Fall of Hunter and Joe, Inc.” based on the daily revelations of the massive influence peddling and outright extortion committed by the current President of the United States, his son, his brothers, and other members of the family, aided by the FBI and the DOJ. Bari, show us you are a real journalist and committed to the real truth and publish real news that only half of the country is hearing.
Just another screed by a fool who has been taken. Zzzzzzzzz.................As if it wasn't always clear that something was seriously amiss in this charade.
If Harry had been smart he'd have taken the pick of "his usual choice of leggy, trust-funded blondes" and lived a happy life as another royal descending down the chain with each new niece or nephew. Instead he's condemned to a life as the butt of jokes for being the cuck of a completely self-absorbed harridan. Some "fairy tale."
Harry and Meghan both appear to have wholly unwarranted sense of entitlement. Nothing pisses people off more than that.
I came straight to the comments because, well, WHAT KIND OF BANANAHEAD EVER ROOTED FOR THESE TWO PARASITIC CLOWNS???
What’s sad about this is what could have been. Meghan and Harry could have been selfless and humble servants of the people in the UK, truly helping the Commonwealth which has people of all nationalities and “people of color,” and inspiring minorities in Britain. This is why I admire Catherine and William, and Sophie and Edward, and above all, Princess Anne. Yes, they are wealthy by reason of birth (although Catherine and Sophie were middle class who married in), but they work VERY hard at serving the people in their country and ALWAYS put the focus on others.
Grifter is the perfect word for H & M and I wonder when she will file for divorce.
They want the perks of royalty and none of the responsibilities.
Lots of people misunderstand the purpose of the British royal family. They are the UK equivalent of Mike Rowe.
Rowe goes into workplaces where people get dirty, where the work is physically demanding, where workers are sweaty and exhausted by the end of the day, but where people outside that workplace have little regard for what they do; and Rowe shows how important the work they do is, how clever the workers are who do it, and how much they--and others like them Rowe doesn't get to showcase--deserve our recognition.
That's what the royals do too. To someone who doesn't understand, it's all silly and pointless. It's just traveling for miles to shake a few hands and pull a curtain open. But, they go to a workplace, a charity, school, or community center; and for one hour, the people there get to show the camera the important work they are doing. For one hour, they have the spotlight aimed at them and are told that someone recognizes them and knows their importance. For one hour, the commoners get to be the center of attention.
Markle, and even Harry, never seemed to understand that. Markle has been quoted as wondering why she wasn't getting paid for things like this. What she, in particular, couldn't understand was she wasn't the star of the show during an appearance. Her job was to bring the cameras and the media, and then point at the people around her and say: film them!
As for Rowe, we talk about the Kennedys or the Clintons, or the Obamas as America's royalty, but because he is much closer to doing what the British royals actually do, Rowe's our real royalty. (I'll take him over Harry any day!)
Americans couldn’t get enough of Harry and Meghan?
Harry won us all over?
Huh? She must mean the shrunken universe of People Magazine readers.
I’m guilty of schadenfreude while observing, somewhat indifferently, the bloom go off the rose for these grifters.
BTW - about that opening: Some Americans DON’T “truly care about” the “hard work” that this couple has “shirked.” Doesn’t this writer know that hard work is racist?
I guess TFP is reduced to gossip column pabulum, as there are no hints of corruption in the White House to ponder?
So Piers Morgan was right about these F’ng grifters.
Morgan: “I’m sorry, I don’t believe a word she says... I wouldn’t believe her if she read me a weather report.”
People worth 10's of millions playing the victim, that's what made them gross.
So a slavish star fxxker turns on the target of her desire. Those first few paragraphs were embarrassing in their tongue bathing. Oh, and kudos on slipping in a dissing reference to Melania, whom we know you just hate with the heat of a thousand suns because it was so random and pointed.
Never heard of this author. A little research shows she’s a colleague of Chris Cuomo, that even CNN couldn’t stand.
The author of this piece took way too long in coming to the conclusion that Harry and Meghan are fake.
How could you leave out the South Park special? 😂
