Thomas Markle gave another toxic, threatening, asinine interview to Piers Morgan

Dua Lipa arrives at the 62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards held at Staples Center on January 26, 2020 in Los Angeles, California, United States.

Today’s tedious and pathetic display in the Sussexit saga was Piers Morgan interviewing Thomas Markle – via satellite link – for Good Morning Britain. Quick question for British peeps… is there any backlash towards GMB’s producers or parent company for Piers Morgan’s behavior, his open racism, his appalling sexism and generally trollish behavior? It’s shocking that he still has a job, is what I’m saying. Is GMB sort of like a Fox News morning show, where people expect to see the worst person snort and preen and lie as they eat breakfast? The man makes me nauseous. Thomas Markle also makes me want to vom, especially when it’s clear that he’s trying to remember the script written out for him by Piers.

To all the people who tweeted me about this… did you watch the whole thing? Because I couldn’t. This is ten minutes of two abusive men harassing a woman who has justifiably cut both of them out of her life. It’s a portrait of two narcissistic bullies and hateful idiots being gross. So, yeah, I couldn’t watch this beyond one minute. Life’s too short. I’m going off of coverage found elsewhere – Thomas apparently threatened to give a tell-all interview every 30 days until Meghan speaks to him. He ordered Harry to “man up and fly down and see me and we will talk.” He says that the British coverage of Meghan was not racist. He says that Meghan and Harry are an embarrassment to Queen and country.

People were also tweeting at me because Thomas claims to have been in contact with Jason Knauf, who is currently in charge of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Royal Foundation. But… from what I gather, I think Thomas was referencing a time in 2018 when he tried to get in touch with Meghan and Harry either immediately before or after the wedding. Which would have been when Harry and William shared an office, and Jason Knauf worked for both of them. It’s not like Jason has only worked for William for years. Still, I’m not going to watch this abusive POS for ten minutes to work it out. But sure, I wouldn’t put it past Camp Cambridge to be actively pushing stories about Toxic Tom.

    I can’t figure out which of the two I despise more.

    • Ali says:

      Why not both equally

    • Yes to that Mesee. I think of them as the Toxic Twins. I can’t watch anything this pair puts on film and I never read any print articles as I’ve got ‘no clicks to give this refuse’. Like Kaiser I pick up info through other reports. What’s beyond belief to me is that both Thomas and Piers long ago moved into crazy, scary stalker mode when it comes to Meghan — and yet both still have an audience. The more they bully and threaten and try to blackmail Harry and, especially, Meghan the further away the Sussexes are from them. If I was Meghan both of them would just be bothersome flies orbiting a shit pile of their own making. Something you glance at in order to step around and move on down the road living your best life.

        Lol @JA LowcountryLady, after I recovered from choking on my coffee, I laughed out loud and gave you round of applause in my imagination. Beautifully put!

    • Mac says:

      Brexit is this Friday. Surely Piers has more pressing matters to discuss on his show.

      • Guest2.0 says:

        That’s what I’ve been trying to wrap my head around. Brexit should be the topic the British media should be focused on right now…not H&M.

      • Jumpingthesnark says:

        See, Brexit this week is EXACTLY Why they are doing this now. The conservative British tabloids are trying their best to distract their readers from Brexit and it’s repercussions which will surely hurt them so much worse than anything the Sussexes are doing or not doing.

      • Natters5 says:

        Or Pedo Prince Andrew.

        Nope. Hell hath no fury like a white man scorned by a bi-racial woman…

  2. Becks1 says:

    He’s so despicable. I refuse to watch even a clip of the interviews.

    • CherHorowitz says:

      Same. I couldn’t despise Piers Morgan any more if I tried, and I can’t even attempt to get on board with a man that does this to his daughter.

      With regards to what the hell Morgan’s employers are thinking… to be honest I dont get the impression an awful lot of people actually watch the show. So they essentially rely on Piers Morgan to say awful things just to get a clip worthy of circulation on social media. He is basically an asset to them in that respect. There are also lots of stories in UK about how the staff on the show hate him and again, whilst I’m sure it’s true, the stories only generally more publicity for the show (because they are juicy stories about then cutting him off live on air etc).

      They have Susanna Reid (his co host) to balance it out, as she has many times shown open disdain on air and ripped into him. So cynically speaking, they have their bases covered. To be honest i think it’s less ‘how does he still have a job’ and more ‘this is exactly why they hired him’.

      • Guest2.0 says:

        No way Piers Morgan would be on the air in North America spouting that racist nonsense. No one would tolerate his foolishness.

      • Alisha says:

        @guest2.0 that’s not exactly true, we have Fox News, home of the “Santa clause is white” team.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      I stopped at one minute 40.
      Pathetic pretender.

      • Still_Sarah says:

        @ NotSoSocialButterfly
        I took one for the team and watched it all. It is actually quite boring and also contains several heavy handed moments that are supposed to be emotional – Piers Morgan asking Markle “If you could talk to Meghan right now, if she’s watching this, what would you say?”.

        Susanna Reid, his co-host, actually has some “interesting” expressions at one point where Piers Morgan is playing devil’s advocate and asking Markle to respond to critics who ask why he is on TV yet again saying the same stuff yet again. Reid appears to be nodding her head yes.

    • minx says:

      I can’t watch it either, they are both disgusting.

  3. Cidy says:

    I dont think the Cambridges are behind Toxic Tom.

    I am really disgusted by him but MORE disgusted by the folks who keep giving him a platform. How does Morgan even have a job?? At this point Meg and Harry cant point some of their lawsuit at him. He has encouraged more vitriol and racism and disgust. Ugh he makes me shudder.

    • Eleonor says:

      Me neither.
      He doesn’t need to be pushed anywhere, this is all on him.

      • Elisa says:

        +1
        also, blaming someone else only makes him less responsible for this mess and he owns this sh**show.

    • Mac says:

      Does Toxic Tom get ratings? He is a bitter a-hole, who wants to watch that?

    • kerwood says:

      The Cambridges stand to benefit from this, so they might not be on the phone with Thomas Markle on a regular basis but I have no doubt that it’s been conveyed to him that the Cambridges are in favour of what he’s doing. All that shit about Meghan bringing down the monarchy? Didn’t he call them a ‘cult’ at one time? What caused the turnaround?

      • Guest with Cat says:

        I think you’re right, @kerwood. Didn’t Wiiliam have some sort of connection to an interview with Toxic Tom getting nominated for an award? I seem to recall something to that effect from several months ago.

      • Eleonor says:

        I don’t think so, because he will be talking about them too. Good William and Kate vs bad bad Harry and Meghan.

  4. Sarah says:

    So he WAS in touch with Jason & the Royals around the time of the wedding. Interesting. I thought he had been left alone, to his own devices, without anyone to look after him and that’s why he had decided to start selling out his own daughter. Wasn’t that the first version? This POS is a walking contradiction.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Yes thats correct but narc’s like him can’t keep track of the lies.

    • A says:

      We’ve known he was lying from the get go, and it was confirmed when he published his letter and walked back the assertion that he’d never been contacted prior to and after the wedding. And now we get even more information about what was going on at the time.

  5. Ali says:

    I dont understand why they give this guy a platform.

  6. Lara says:

    There’s not enough of a backlash against him or Piers Morgan here (the UK) and it’s embarrassing.

    • GuestOne says:

      Shame there isn’t more of a backlash really. Thomas is threatening to do an interview every 30 days until Meghan talks to him which to me is very similar to the criminal offence in the UK of coercive control so surprised more women’s groups or high profile feminists aren’t speaking up against this. Ignoring fact of Meghan’s privilege, it is a really live example of abusive/controlling behaviour but I suspect these views won’t get airtime as it is against the media’s agenda.

      From what I can see on social media people are getting fed up with him & understand why Meghan isn’t talking to him. I do see some poor Thomas comments still going around and this UK TV presenter even blamed Doria and suggested she had poisoned Meghan’s mind. I knew this was coming when the Fail had the article that Doria was behind Sussexit.

      I refuse to watch or read his interviews but from what I hear from those who bite the bullet on social media, he had wanted to apologise to the royal family for missing the wedding and Harry said don’t worry about it but then he contacted Jason Knauf directly to apologise. So again he’s contradicting himself about how he had no support from the palace (he had previously said in his initial interviews he had) but also shows he will do his own thing and not follow instructions. Makes me think there wasn’t much the Sussexes could do to avoid the Markle debacle. Apparently Piers had a funny look on his face when Jason’s name was dropped lol…

      Also seen some excerpts of interview Harry did with the Sun where he apparently ‘joked’ that him and Harry should have a duel and suggested he would shoot him to settle the score. Used media points that Harry is whipped and is coming off like a ‘wimping boy’. Also said that Meghan has turned into his mother. Thomas REALLY hates Harry – he legit seems to regard Harry almost like a rival. Also goes to him apparently saying in the documentary that he was better looking then Harry when he was younger.

      He’s obviously spoon fed what to say as he uses all media talking point. He also said they should drop SussexRoyal to stop from cashing in, they should fly commercially and that he doesn’t believe that Meghan has had racist treatment in the press. Although contradicts what he said to the documentary maker about seeing racial undertones in the initial reporting.

      He’s also saying that the Fail shouldn’t be blamed and that Meghan’s lawsuit is his fault (lol could he BE providing any more obvious cover to the Fail) but that he would testify even if he it affect his health as he wants his truth to come out. He apparently thinks his testimony would be like the impeachment proceedings! The narcissism of this man! But clearly ‘Operation get Meghan to drop the lawsuit’ continues at full pace -what is everyone so scared of? I would be very surprised if he was actually asked to testify (can’t really see how his input is relevant really and think this is part of a scare tactic) as he would fall apart to any real challenge – he is very inconsistent and contradicts himself constantly so goes to show how little ‘journalists’ have questioned him and just allowed him to rant on.

    • Nahema says:

      My feeling is that most people in the UK see Piers Morgan as a bit of a joke. People know he’s extreme and seems to enjoy stirring up trouble. There are a number of celebs that he has regular beef with, including Lily Allen.

      GMB is trashy, just as Lorraine and Loose Women are. They’re all filled with rubbish every day. People don’t speak out enough about it but that’s because a lot of the people share the feeling that he’s essentially a sh 1t stirrer and just don’t pay attention. Those that watch, enjoy watching the sh 1t stirring.

      • GuestOne says:

        @Nahema whilst GMB is trash this interview is picked up on mainstream news channels& spreads past the typical GMB viewer. so would be nice if somebody was discussing this seriously.

        @Lanne thanks I was making the point a few weeks ago that the troubling coverage for Meghan wasn’t just limited to tabloids but was very much part of mainstream print& broadcast media which is why it’s so insidious.

      • A says:

        @Nahema, I feel like this attitude is what has allowed the tabloid press to get away with what it does and get as toxic as it has.

        Yes, they’re all sh-t. Yes, they’re all hamming it up for the sake of it. Yes, most people ignore them because they’re not credible, they’re just full of crap.

        However, these things do change the landscape of your discourse, whether you like it or not. When spawning continuous outrage becomes the business model, it’s really naive to believe on any level that this type of discourse won’t start seeping into other spaces too. It doesn’t take very long for “”respectable”" outlets to realize that blatant outrage is a good way to make money, so they start switching the tone of their coverage to compete with the tabloids. We’ve already seen this happen where papers like the Times, the Telegraph and others have begun matching the vitriol in the tabloids because they know their readership prefers that.

  7. GirlOne says:

    Good Morning Britain is a tabloid disguised as a morning tv show.

  8. S808 says:

    I pray she’s free of that man forever very soon.

  9. Mich says:

    “I’m going to keep publicly humiliating and insulting my daughter for money every 30 days unless she contacts me” is an interesting strategy for healing family relationships.

    On Twitter yesterday, someone was saying the Sun had reported that Scumbag Sr and his son plan to go up to Canada with a camera crew to stalk her and try to force her to talk to them. Every time I think these people have hit peak toxic, they find a way to top themselves.

    • Where'sMyTiara says:

      OMFG.
      None of this surprises me, and the brother? Straight up triangulation there, and Junior might be acting as Sr’s emotional caretaker here. Probably enmeshed with his dad. I have a sib that pulls similar, always tagging in as co-abuser, had to cut them off too.

      I once had my non-N parent chase me down after I’d first gone no-contact with them. Found out where I was living and showed up unannounced to harangue me for… get this… not showing up to the family thanksgiving dinner. Basically the whole tirade was along the lines of “How very dare you, not showing up so we can verbally abuse you for a whole weekend!” I laughed in their face, told them to leave before I call the cops, and shut the door.

      This goes beyond the emotional blackmail articles put out by the BRF to try to drag H&M back into the abuse cycle. This is intimidation and criminal threatening. She doesn’t owe them shit.

      Ugh. Remind me never to become famous until after my narcissistic parent is dead.

      • GuestWho says:

        Can criminals cross the boarder into Canada – doesn’t Jr. have a lengthy arrest record?

        These men are chilling. They are truly not going to be happy until she’s dead.

      • Who ARE These People? says:

        What a good and reassuring observation. Many types of prior convictions could make get someone stopped at the border. Canada has access to US records.

        Harry and Meghan made a good choice to live on that side of the border.

      • Snazzy says:

        Oh my God @WMTiara I am so sorry they did that. My mom (and sibling tag-in co abuser as you so nicely put it) did that too, but I got wind of it (a sympathetic relative told me) and so I spread the word my BF said if she did show up he wouldn’t let her in the house and she could roam the streets of Zurich with her suitcase on her own, even if she froze. I hope you’ve found a way to keep that person as far away from you as possible.

        Regarding Meghan and Toxic Tom, she needs to take this as the threat it is and notify the RCMP. Get a restraining order or something, to keep him from being able to get near her.

      • Meg says:

        Wow do we have the same family?
        Yes narcissists are bullies who think they’re entitled to victims of their bullying

      • KW says:

        Same thing happened here @tiara. I am sitting in disbelief that our stories can relate to so many others. My abusive sisters and mother sent my three nieces to my house on labour day to find out if I was away. I answered the door because I love those girls, and I was appalled that they had sent these three to do their dirty work. I have now been banned from family functions …. hmmmm. I’m not losing sleep.

      • Izzy says:

        I Tweeted directly to Justin Trudeau that Markle Sr and his crazy daughter Scammy should be stopped at the border if they try to get into Canada.

      • Leslie says:

        Wow, thank you for your comment – I just did THE most productive rathole deep-dive on “n-parent” and holy poop. I have just sent the subreddit to my siblings as it is our mother exactly. Exactly. We know she is grievously mentally ill, I haven’t had a lot of interaction for over a decade, and her lack of empathy has always been odd (she is definitely in the external locus of control bucket) – now all the clues are coming together as a profound narcissist. Wow, and thank you!

      • Where'sMyTiara says:

        Hugs, Leslie! I’m sorry you’re one of the survivor tribe too, but I’m glad you got free.

        “Out of the Fog” is a website that I’ve found to be a useful resource. There are others out there too. Half the battle for me was putting names to the dozens of little shitty behaviours I was subjected to by my N parent and N sibling. These narcissists all seem to be issued the same playbook. Once you see them, you can’t unsee.

    • Erinn says:

      Do either of them have DUIs? Because that will likely prevent them from entering, even if it happened a decade ago.

      • Who ARE These People? says:

        Example 4,589 in my life of “No, Canada is not the 51st state and you can’t just come up and live here without our government’s say-so.”

      • Erinn says:

        I googled a bit, and apparently Tom Jr has a pretty recent DUI as well as a domestic. So if we’re looking at this logically he isn’t making it in.

    • Marie says:

      The Markles are all talk. They won’t do it. Thomas doesn’t ever leave his house and I thought the younger one was in jail? They can try but I’m sure security will take VERY good care of them.
      Thomas wants to look all big and bad but in reality he is a tub of lard with no life. He is a hermit that never leaves his house except to get fast food.

    • Sophie says:

      Threatening and abusing someone into compliance with their wishes is a pretty standard, if ineffective, move for a narcissist who has been cut off. My parents did the exact same thing when I went NC. It definitely validated my decision, but was painful and exhausting. I could see how someone who was still trapped in codepedency or self doubt could be convinced to come crawling back and grovel, just to keep the peace and make the abuse stop.

      • Who ARE These People? says:

        Congratulations on your tough decision to protect yourself. I know firsthand that a lot of people don’t understand or respect this course of action, but you have to do what is right for your life. Damned if you do…

    • Guest with Cat says:

      @Mich, I find that hard to believe. They’re after the easy money they can get from running their mouths and that sounds like way too much exercise and fresh air for either of them.

    • Feeshalori says:

      If Toxic Tom or his nutcase son put their money where their mouths are and stalk Meghan in Canada, I hope she gets a court order of protection to keep them far away from her and Archie. Or they can be stopped at the border. They won’t be happy until she’s dead.

      • kelleybelle says:

        That is just silly. It would never, ever happen. It’s tabloid trash talking is all. It’s time legal action was taken against these abusive shit-heaps. Seriously. They’re being paid to threaten and harass. No Markle would ever get within even ten miles of that couple.

      • Where'sMyTiara says:

        Someone in my TL on Twitter posted a thing that was published in The Sun.

        And I’m…wow. no words. Anyone remember reading about this threat from Thomas Markle to HARRY?

        “Thomas ‘joked’ that they should have a High Noon showdown, saying “I’ll be happy to duel with Harry any time. One round in the chamber. Cocked. Ten steps, turn and fire. That’d settle the score.”

        WHAT SCORE, THOMAS? What the fecking feck?

        How is Markle Sr. not in an oubliette under Scotland Yard right now? How? He made that threat around the time of the wedding, well before the Harry and Meghan decided to pass up Royal Life. So where was the BRF sticking up for them then? What were they doing then and now to protect them?

    • Jan says:

      You know I almost wish they would. Thomas is stupid enough to make such a racket that someone would call the police (Mounties?) who would arrest them. At least I wouldn’t have to look at or hear him if he’s in jail! Piers Morgan is just such an obnoxious Jerk.

  10. Where'sMyTiara says:

    My first question on reading this:

    Harry is a British citizen, Meghan is a US citizen.
    How many countries can they file PFA/RO (Protection from Abuse/Restraining Orders) in?
    Because this harassment is going to launch more paps into orbit, and that’s a danger to them, to their security, to their wellbeing.

    This is abuse, without question. H&M don’t want it, they don’t deserve it, and they have done their level best to escape it personally & professionally.

    Thos. Markle needs to be jailed for his threats, imo. Whether the law will see it that way is probably unlikely, but jeezus, something needs to be done about him. And Piers has needed a short sharp shock for a while too. Wasn’t he involved in the phone hacking? Why wasn’t he jailed for that? Rebekah has quietly been put back in her post, I noticed.

    • Piers is implemented in Harry’s becoming part of the second prong of the phone hacking legal battle. (I think it begins to go to court in late 2020.). Check out ByLineInvestigations as they follow it all very closely. If that case is successful Piers could face jail time. He is rabid to try and get both Meghan and Harry to drop their individual legal actions.

      • Where'sMyTiara says:

        Ramping up his attacks like an abusive spouse outraged that his wife left him is not a real solid strategy for getting his abuse victims to drop the case.

        It’s the extinction burst of an abuser who feels entitled to abuse his target. He has that in common with Meghan’s father, which is why they seem to be banding together in common cause. It’s sick.

        His lawyer needs to have a little talk with him about actions and consequences. Lordt.

      • I think Piers has been getting away with his behavior for so long as he is under the very powerful protection of Murdoch. Sooner or later though — as he becomes more out of control — he will be more of a liability than an asset. There is no loyalty at this level of corrupt, immoral gamesters.

    • Who ARE These People? says:

      You shouldn’t need citizenship to ask for police protection. The RCMP (Mounties) (in coordination with provincial and local police) are probably on top of this situation in coordination with the British Royal Protection Service … right? Anyone?

      • Snazzy says:

        yes I said something similar above. They need to contact the RCMP ASAP

      • Where'sMyTiara says:

        This is what I’m wondering… given the seeming nebulous arrangements for security, who’s paying for what, etc.

        Charles has the ability to step in and make sure it’s covered, but as he was one of the many people targeting H&M surreptitiously, I’m not sanguine he’ll actually do that.

      • A says:

        @Where’sMyTiara, the RCMP are funded by Canadian tax payer money as a whole. There is no specific set of earmarked funds that goes towards a certain individual vs. another, unless they’re visiting a place where the RCMP has jurisdiction in an official capacity. What this means is that you can call them up and ask them for protection or otherwise avail yourself of their services, even if you’re not necessarily a citizen or a permanent resident of Canada, and they won’t charge you for it. You can be a tourist and still call up the RCMP if they’re your local police force if you’ve been robbed or receiving credible threats to your life and they’ll look into it and file a report and do whatever else.

        I think that Meghan and Harry probably have private security as it is, and it’s not being funded by the Canadian tax payer. However, because they are residing in BC at this time, they can call the police just like anyone else would be able to call the police if they were receiving death threats. If I’m correct about this set up, I feel like it would be enormously silly to quibble about two people using the police service just like any old rando in the area would call the police because “my tax dollars.”

  11. (TheOG)@jan90067 says:

    Wonder why Scotland Yard doesn’t have this Toxic Troll on a “list”, like they do Pscho Scammy. Although I guess since H&M stepped back, and they’re not officially “royal”, does that watch on Psycho Scammy fall off?

    These two POS just infuriate me! That they are allowed to spew this hatred and feed off each other… AARRGGHH!!! WHY is this allowed? It IS hate speech, encouraging some nut case(es) to do something. And when it does, they’ll be the LOUDEST criers about “HOW could this happen in a civilized society”.

  12. paranormalgirl says:

    A “tell-all?” He barely knows Meghan. He’s such a toxic trash dump of a person.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      yeah, I was like “how much does he actually have to ‘tell’?” like, hasn’t he already pretty much told all he knows? so every 30 days, he’ll go on TV and repeat himself? he won’t be invited back for long if that’s the case.

  13. GuestWho says:

    “After this interview, if I don’t hear from someone in 30 days then I will try again. I don’t want to sit in silence in my living room for the rest of my life waiting for someone to get back to me.”

    Excellent strategy. /s

    I think he can stop waiting – nobody will be getting back to him.

    • pottymouth pup says:

    • kelleybelle says:

      Thank you for letting the whole world know that you have no life, no love, no friends, no nothing in your life save for your morbid obsession with your own daughter, Thomas. Please spend as long as you like “sitting in your living room” and shut your filthy mouth, please, you insufferable, greedy, abusive piece of shit.

    • Lady2Lazy says:

      Isn’t it true that her father does not have contact with all of older children and their children? I googled it but it only references Quora and it seems he has not met all of Samantha/Satans children and she, in fact, has no relationships with several of her children due to NC with her. It is my understanding that she didn’t raise all of them. So why is he blabbing all over the world when he has no relationships with his other grandchildren? Not much of a case to stand on, if you ask me.

      • GuestWho says:

        What you’ve said is true…he has no relationship with his other 5 grandchildren – some of whom he has never met. I think he also has a great grandchild he’s not met. But he’s not lamenting that because they are not wealthy.

        Samantha didn’t raise her two oldest children it’s been said (and I do not know if this is true) that she gave them to her first husband’s parents to raise for a nominal fee, and her youngest was abused by her and her criminal boy friend and now lives with Samantha’s mother (or did until she was of age).

        The question is, if you know this, and I know this, why don’t reporters ever bring it up?

        There is a 3 credit course at KU offered this school year called Angry White Male Studies. I do not lie. It examines “the rise of the angry while make in the US and Britain since the 1950s” .. including how masculinity connects to modernity and as well to rights-based movements of women, people of color, and homosexuals and trans individuals. A prerequisite course is “Women, Gender and Sexuality”. When I first read about this I literally stood up and cheered.

    • kerwood says:

      I agree that this is toxic White male rage acting out. But I can’t ignore the fact that the overwhelming MAJORITY of consumers and supporters of this filth are WHITE FEMALES. The history of toxic White male behaviour is full of White women, egging them on.

      The second White women stop buying, this shit stops.

      • Christina says:

        Agreed, Kerwood. The people watching this stuff are the ones responsible for Morgan’s platform and Thomas being featured on it. A lot of White rage was over Meghan Markle. Her father’s narcissistic resentment at not being able to control her layered with public racism against her.

      • Soupie says:

        As a white woman, from L.A. no less, I feel helpless against old white male bullshi-. I speak out but it doesn’t do any good. I wonder how many of my old white female friends look away to keep the peace with their jerk husbands. This is why I dont have relationships with white males. It just doesn’t work.

      • Plus, we all have to concede that every one of these “white male ragers” was raised by someone.

      • Christina says:

        @Soupie, hugs. All you can do is keep fighting the good fight. It’s especially bad in Los Angeles. Places where men make a lot of money and feel invincible and view women as “bagels”.

        I just can’t get that out of my brain, the “bagels” comment from Jeffrey Epstein about women. It encapsulates how I felt treated as a younger woman in Los Angeles. We are all reduced to bagels that feed toxic men, especially wealthy white men.

      • A says:

        White women have the most to gain from their whiteness as well as their proximity to white men.

    • Lady2Lazy says:

      Piers has had a bullseye on MM forehead since she cut him out of her circle so he is hell bent on revenge.
      PM should be FIRED from his one man campaign to hurl abuse at her.

  15. MsIam says:

    So much for the Mail’s “star witness”. Weren’t they hoping that the fear of him saying embarrassing things was supposed to goad her into dropping the lawsuit? By the time they get to trial Toxic will have spilled his guts so much that everyone will have tuned him out. Plus, isn’t he flirting with an extortion/harassment charge here?

    • Talie says:

      I don’t think he will be called and even if he is, no way he flies to England. He’s not a reliable witness in any way.

    • Also, Markle’s whole defense in publishing Meghan’s private letter is that Meghan called him a liar via her friends talking to PEOPLE mag and referencing her letter so he had to publish it to protect his good name. His endless public discourse at this point would seem to make that defense worthless. Plus his admitting lies and contradicting himself provides more defense ammo when he begins to lie on the stand (if he is ever called to take the stand).

  16. nettie says:

    I can’t even watch this. Is he honestly that stupid to think he will ever see any of this family again with these threats. LOSER

    • Who ARE These People? says:

      He’s either that stupid or he’s being paid. In his mind, he has nothing to lose.

    • Giddy says:

      Is he that stupid? Absolutely
      Will he ever see Meghan again? No
      Will he ever meet Harry? Doubtful
      Will he ever meet Archie? Oh, hell no !😡

      • Christina says:

        It’s not about that. It’s about money and feeling important.

        He doesn’t actually have feelings for his daughter or the baby. His behavior shows it. They are his property in his mind. He needs narcissistic supply, and he gets that attention (money and TV appearances) by whooping it up for Piers Morgan.

      • A says:

        He doesn’t care what he gets. He wins either way. If Meghan caves and sees him and brings Archie to meet him, he can brag that he got his way. If she doesn’t and she stays away, he can use that to continue playing the righteously indignant father/grandfather whose daughter is so cruel that she won’t even come and talk to him. It doesn’t matter to him, he gets his jollies either way, because it’s about control.

  17. MegJ says:

    How that abusive, toxic, horrible and awful man is still alive while my precious, kind, loving and healthy father is dead makes me feel sick. If anyone believes a word that comes out of his or Piers Morgans mouth then they should take good hard look at themselves and their prejudices. Poor Meghan.

    • Guest with Cat says:

      @MEGJ I’m sorry for your loss. My lovely mother-in-law passed away last year and it hardly seems fair she’s gone and a father like this is left to torment his loving daughter. She’s done more than enough for this piece of garbage.

  18. Jamie says:

    Thomas Markle is not a father. He’s just a sperm donor.
    He should be referred to as such.

    • Bettyrose says:

      Not that it matters, but I’m curious what he was like 40 years ago that Doria found something to love. They seem to have entirely different temperaments and..uh…physical fitness. I’m not just being shallow. If fitness is a lifestyle for one and not the other, seems like there’d be compatibility issues.

      Now, my own parents have barely spoken in 40 years, but they are definitely one another’s type, so I get how they happened.

      • Guest with Cat says:

        @Bettyrose, I saw a picture of Toxic Tom when he was younger. He looked more normal, less like a man who has let himself go. The press is skirting around it now but he mentioned some drug use like coke. Even that traitor childhood friend alluded to Meghan protecting some of his secrets. If you’ve seen the breadcrumbs of facts that have slipped out, the nebulous picture emerges of a man who gave too far into indulgences available in his showbiz environment and has become a bit of a toddler in temperament as a result.

        I think there was some good there once. The man who made the biracial Barbie family for his daughter had something going for him to have done that.

        I can see that he and Sam are articulate and intelligent, which are traits that give some sharp teeth to their toxicity. But they are consumed with vile emotions and boundless senses of entitlement that don’t make a very good impression of their mental states. And that’s an understatement!

      • Who ARE These People? says:

        What an insightful analysis. Thanks for highlighting how intelligence doesn’t make the dysfunction any better or easier to bear. It’s just nastiness dressed up with fancy words.

      • (TheOG)@jan90067 says:

        Guest, I seem to remember reading something that Jr. said, about dear, depraved daddy in Thailand with hookers and coke. So yeah, there’s that.

        Here’s one link (from a fast Google search). There are others.

        https://www.2oceansvibe.com/2018/10/25/meghans-dad-this-cocaine-and-hooker-story-is-not-going-away/

      • kelleybelle says:

        @Guest with Cat: Where in hell are you getting that Sam and Sr. are articulate and intelligent? The four Masters degrees are blatant lies. She barely has her GED. She can’t even spell and can barely tweet. Intelligent people can keep track of their lies much better than these two filthy losers can. They’re nothing but lying trash. Vanity Fair tried to paint this picture too and for that lost my subscription.

      • Guest with Cat says:

        @kelleybelle, well from what I’ve seen on social media the last couple of years, I admit I realize my bar for considering someone intelligent and articulate is set pretty low these days. I actually sat through and watched several minutes of Lori Laughlin’s daughter, Olivia Jade, speaking on a YouTube video. Don’t do that. Don’t ever do that. You will want to dash your head against a wall. You will lose all faith in the future of humanity.

        It’s appalling someone that willfully ignorant, with seemingly no command of her native tongue, has a platform on which to financially enrich herself to ridiculous levels.

        I haven’t read any of Samantha’s tweets. Just going off of her interviews and Toxic Tom’s, I thought they seem coherent enough to sustain a few minutes worth of interviews. Mind you, I loathed what they had to say, but found that their vocabulary is decently developed. Lol, and that’s all I’ve got. I think listening to Olivia Jade Giannuli knocked a few points off my own IQ.

      • Bettyrose says:

        I tend to think people don’t change their fundamental selves from early to late adulthood, but addiction does break all rules. But if that timeline is accurate, he was an addict and sex tourist while married to Doria. I supposed he hid it well at first, and maybe he was very intelligent and charming. Guessing he showed his true colors fairly quickly tho.

      • kelleybelle says:

        @Guest with cat: I hear you loud and clear. I managed a few seconds of Lori’s daughter and left it at that. That is just tragic. Paid entrance to a great university yet without mastering 3rd-grade punctuation. Frightening. Sam can sound remotely articulate at times but really is not, given the insults she hurls at people. But look at the household she grew up in. A dad who abandoned them for years and then seeing a lot of drunkenness, drugs, underage sex trips, verbal abuse., zero respect for marriage, kids, relationships. They’re mirror images of him. A woman who claims to have two Masters degrees in screenwriting (no such thing) and yet cannot master a three-character ellipsis … I have to wonder about, never mind her horrific spelling. This is one reason they resent Meghan so much is that they saw her get his attention above all else, and the rest I’m sure was court-ordered, which they don’t get. Sr. never paid support for them.

      • Bettyrose says:

        Kellybelle,

        True but dad paying more attention to second family is a story old as time. These people are next level.

  19. MellyMel says:

    Thomas and Piers really deserve each other. Horrible, horrible men!

  20. tempest prognosticator says:

    Pathetic old fool spitting in the wind.

  21. Anna says:

    He should be ashamed of himself!
    No child, (no matter how old the “child” is) deserves this kind of a treatment from a parent.
    He doesn’t deserve to call himself a father… I can’t imagine how heartbreaking this must be…

  22. Rapunzel says:

    Bears reminding: Piers Morgan needs to be immediately quarantined by NHS and given a rabies shot. He’s foaming at the mouth with hatred, and it’s a health hazard.

    Thomas Markle’s threats are pathetic, but I’m glad he keeps talking. The more he smears Meg, the less people act like she owes him. Each time he opens his mouth, he shows why he is out of her life.

    Oh, and he’s not going through with testifying for the Daily Fail or harassing Meg in Canada. He’s too lazy.

    • I also think there is a very nasty sexual obsession side to this as far as Piers’ behavior. And, I’m beginning to wonder if their is a degree of unfulfilled incestual desire By Thomas towards Meghan. Sick. Sick. Sick.

      Also, I don’t think Thomas gets this, but LOVE DIES. I would be very surprised if Meghan has not moved beyond the deep pain of his betrayal that she must have originally felt. I can’t imagine there is any love left for this pathetic excuse for a parent.

      • Bettyrose says:

        It’s emotional incest, like Ivanka. Daddy is always #1 and daughter lives to please him. That’s what Thomas is after.

      • (TheOG)@jan90067 says:

        JA, Toxic Tom even says, in EVERY interview how he was (creepily) obsessed with Meghan from the moment of birth. He made some comment to the effect that he never felt that kind of love for a child (which must’ve made the other two feel great, as if they didn’t exist). Also, considering how he has NO relationship with the others, OR THEIR kids… that says a LOT, how he’s ONLY focused on Meghan, and Archie (to a lesser extent).

      • kelleybelle says:

        Harry can have her, and Sr. cannot. And yes, he is obsessed. We already know he’s a pervert into underage sex.

      • Sass says:

        @kellybelle whoa what?! I have not heard that one before. Ew.

      • kelleybelle says:

        @Sass; yes, remember how he was complaining about how the RF had her “all covered up?” What does that tell you? He is also very into exotic-looking women. Doria looked like a child when he married her. Sam also mentions a Japanese girlfriend at one point. Plus the Philippines/Thailand trips. Yes, I think he is jealous of Harry, insanely jealous. “I was better looking than Harry at that age.” Who TF cares? The whole thing is very dark and creepy. Harry has replaced Sr. in her affections and he hates it. Self-inflicted but he hates it. I hope it eats him alive.

      • Sass says:

        @kelleybelle I definitely missed the gross comments about Meghan being covered up, and the trips to those countries. Yikes. I definitely know about the weird competition (in his head) that he’s got going with Harry. My mother in law tried this shit with me. We have been no contact for almost five years and still she tries. It’s gross.

      • Bettyrose says:

        Whoa the Doria- Tom wedding pics…she could be 15! She’s wasn’t. Nothing weird about their ages until you start adding in additional evidence. Tom’s look back then reminds me of Frasier. Not hot but certainly agreeable to a certain taste. Now I feel like I’m getting an image of him aggressively pursuing her, poems…theater tickets..the cultured romantic routine. ..and I see how it all might’ve happened.

    • A says:

      I’m not saying this to excuse Piers Morgan, but I do think it’s worth reminding people that he’s a slimy fraud of the highest order. Multiple people have called him out for his behaviour. He doesn’t do what he does because he actually believes in the crap he’s spewing. He does what he does because he knows that it sells. It gets him clicks, it gets him viewers. He’s applying the same logic he learned in the tabloid industry–people don’t care about facts, they care about their emotional response, and he is willing to take any position that’ll engender an emotional response from his audience, even if it’s one that he doesn’t particularly agree with. He has absolutely no moral conviction of his own, except what will get him the most attention and the highest pay check, and it’s why people in Britain who know anything about him loathe his guts with a burning passion.

  23. Karmak says:

    I guess Toxic Tom is going to get paid by the British media every 30 days. He is going to be billionaire in a couple years.

    • If he lives that long. He certainly doesn’t look well in photos above. I did hear about 30 seconds or so of his last interview and he sounds like he’s dealing with heart congestion.

      • (TheOG)@jan90067 says:

        Couldn’t happen to a “nicer” person (except Dump). Sorry/Not Sorry. But when you think of all the loving, wonderful parents that have passed (like my mom, at age 49, someone whom everyone loved, who was kind, generous, loving…) and this POS is STILL around spewing… well.. sigh..

      • I agree, TheOG. Both my parents passed recently within 3 weeks of each other. Our relationship wasn’t perfect — whose is — but I never for one second doubted their love or loyalty to me. I was blessed with them.

      • Christin says:

        Hard to understand why those with the fewest nice qualities seem to often get the most years on this earth. Maybe they are getting every opportunity to do better; I don’t know.

  24. Aurora says:

    I would love for someone qualified to deep dive into how Meghan’s blackness is playing into her family’s reactions to her. It’s clear the Markle’s feel Meghan has risen “too far” above her station. They are not comfortable with the only black person in their family having greater fame and fortune and seem all too happy to sabotage her.

    Thomas’s language towards Meghan is disturbing. He has a slave /master attitude in that he feels Meghan should be overly gratified he deigned to give her food, shelter and an education which are the bare minimum standards for parenthood. He a actually expects repayment which suggests he views his relationship with Meghan as transactional rather than that of father and daughter.

    I Think the Markles are an interesting case study in what happens when a racist family has a person of color introduced into their midst.

    • Who ARE These People? says:

      I was the white biological daughter of a white man, and he was emotionally abusive in much the same way (as well as physically brutal). Sociopathic/narcissistic parents view their children as property. I’m glad only that I figured it out young enough to break away. Thomas Markle likely has few other real relationships due to his inability to view relationships as anything other than transactional, and transactional to serve him.

      For Meghan, add on the dimension of racism and his other, whiter, children – what a nearly unbearable load. I hope she’s enjoying the fresh air and peace of the Canadian west coast.

    • TheOriginalMia says:

      It’s racism. If he was black, they would condemn him and not entertain his toxicity. This story would have died down years ago.

      • kerwood says:

        @TheOriginalMia, Agreed. And if Meghan were White, this would have ended years ago. The royal family probably wouldn’t have been ecstatic about him marrying a divorced American actress but they would have welcomed her into the family and helped her learn the job. No blackamoor brooches to be seen.

      • Christina says:

        Exactly.

    • sue denim says:

      so interesting…made me think about the racism within the BRF too, and how Archie’s birth, even M’s pregnancy seems to have really triggered the rage…because now they were welcoming not just a new poc by marriage into the family but by blood…

    • Nobimas says:

      There’s not much to unpack. Anti-blackness is the global legacy of Europe’s colonial and imperialist relationship towards Africa and all the people of its diaspora. The subtext of Thomas Markle, Piers Morgan, and any and every other person who think that the Duchess of Sussex “owes” her father is simple:

      She is mixed race and he is her white parent. As far as they’re concerned, she wouldn’t have been an actor -or even a suitcase girl- let alone married to a Prince if she weren’t half White. That she publicly favors her Black American mother when it is her father’s genetics that have given her proximity to “whiteness” has made these people apoplectic with rage. She has not, as far as they’re concerned, genuflected properly to the altar of “whiteness”.

      It’s also why they’re twice as mad that she and her husband left. British Royalty is the concept of white supremacy made manifest and tangible. And she rejected that too.

      These people will die mad about it.

      • Wow Nobimas! Your statement: “British Royalty is the concept of white supremacy made manifest and tangible.” Very powerful and insightful. Kudos.

      • A says:

        @Nobimas, you’re 100% on the dot with this WHOLE comment. The only thing I’d say is that the British monarchy as it exists in the modern day is the concept of white supremacy made manifest and tangible. Notions of whiteness and white supremacy only sprang up in the last 500 years. They’re not immutable concepts that have existed since the dawn of time like some people would have you believe. As the British Empire was evolved, so too did ideas surrounding whiteness and race, and the British royals (and their extended history) became larger tools in that effort. They exist in the form they do today because ideas of white supremacy allowed for the British Empire to subjugate so much of the world, cart off its wealth, all of which funded the BRF’s prestige and their coffers.

    • Emmitt says:

      I think Thomas’ “whiteness” gave the BRF and British Media permission to savage Meghan racially, because if her white daddy (and white siblings) thinks she’s trash, then she’s obviously a piece of trash and it’s not racist because her own white father & white siblings think she’s a piece of trash…surely her white father wouldn’t be racist towards her, right?

    • A says:

      I think the idea of Meghan rising “too far” comes with somewhat of an addendum. They’re fine with her being successful and rising to the top and whatever else. What both Thomas Markle and the royal family can’t abide by is the fact that she didn’t grovel and humble herself and her talents before them adequately enough for their liking. They want to become the arbiter of her success. When she started taking the credit for her own work, they got angry and desperate to cut her down and put her back in her place. They’re okay with her success but only if they are ultimately the ones who are seen as responsible for it. It’s like all the idiots who go on about how if Abraham Lincoln, a white man, didn’t sign the Emancipation Proclamation, slaves wouldn’t be free, or that one particularly egregious Maureen Dowd article I read a few years back where she said that while black civil rights activists might have campaigned for civil rights, it would have never happened if Lyndon B. Johnson didn’t sign it into reality, so people should be “grateful” for a white man for doing the barest minimum.

      You see it still in all the people who continue to insist that her wanting to be visible and work hard is a sign that she’s “performative” and “insincere.” The fact that she relishes in demonstrating her hard work, in getting the credit for her hard work, and isn’t adequately humble and “aw shucks” enough to cater to white people’s feelings of inadequacy. They apply this logic to literally every other black person who they think is too open about their success.

      Tall poppy syndrome in this case is just anger that a hardworking, accomplished black woman is PROUD of how hardworking and accomplished she is, and the fact that she is open about how much she wants to do more good work. Mediocre non-black people really think that everyone else is just like them. They really think that because they’re fake and insincere in their efforts to do anything, so is everyone else.

  25. Anilehcim says:

    I’ve heard and read a lot of people saying really stupid things about Meghan Markle being some sort of opportunist with an agenda. I don’t understand how anyone can’t see that this is EXACTLY why Meghan and Harry took the stand they did and left.

    The media continues to give this pathetic piece of shit a platform to talk about Meghan, and what is their motivation? They are obviously looking to hurt and embarrass her. This is the reason they chose to break away, and yet the media continues to engage in this behavior. This is abuse.

  26. Susie says:

    I used to enjoy Pierce Morgan, but the funny thing is for life of me I can’t remember WHY. I know my dislike started before he was on apprentice where I really started to think he was a tool. Never could watch his show when he was in the states. I am amazed he got a show when he went back home. Hopefully the Queen makes a call 😉

    • Don’t hold your breath, Susie. I still say if this was about the Queen’s daughter, one of her granddaughters, or Kate or Sophie – Piers would have been shut down long ago.

      • (TheOG)@jan90067 says:

        JFC look how fast they shut down talk of Kate’s hair extensions! Yet, THIS continues… so yeah…

  27. Guest with Cat says:

    It’s astonishing to me that he’s admitted to lying about various things, even admitting to lying to Harry, yet some people trust his side of the story and don’t want to give Meghan the benefit of a doubt.

    His own ex wife has said he’s a POS and that Meghan is a good person and doesn’t deserve any of this. Samantha’s daughter has said Meghan is a good person.

    They just get drowned out because toxicity sells. People want to hate. They find in Meghan and Harry the perfect targets for their hatred. From what I’ve heard of their complaints their lives are hard. They don’t have enough money or resources. They need an outlet for their frustrations. And most of them are racist. And classist, even though I suspect classicism doesn’t work in their favor.

    This man is even worse than I ever could have imagined. I have a couple of narcissistic family members I deal with among my in-laws. And my parents definitely have strong tendencies, especially my mother. But I am stubborn and just keep pointing out every manipulation they’re using against me and why it’s not going to work and what I want out of them instead. And I get it. Thankfully they can be reasoned with and even through their narcissim they still are capable of genuine love. When my mom is on her medications she actually is pretty reasonable.

    I’m certain there’s no such conversation that could work with Tom Markle. He’s extremely far gone up his own ass. If there are medications or therapies that could rein in his rampant narcissism, I’m sure he doesn’t love anybody enough to take avail himself of them. He needs to be ruined in this lawsuit. It is all he will understand.

    He’s also clearly accepting being coached to put out certain talking points in preparation for the lawsuit. In fact he’s basically being used to threaten Meghan to drop the lawsuit. Piers even maneuvered Kobe Bryant’s death into the conversation and Toxic Tom went with it. It almost sounded like they were threatening her safety.

    I hope Meghan reads this site and knows those of us who have fought with narcissistic family members support her and want to see her stand her ground and fight this bullshit.

    It could be one of her greatest contributions to mental health and fighting bullying that the Cambridges and Melania could never come close to approaching with any of their campaigns.

    Those of us who have survived narcissim and bullying know it when we see it. We know what it’s costing Meghan to fight this fight. But the bullies need to be brought to account. Or it never ends. There is no appeasing them.

    • Christina says:

      All she can do is ignore them, live her life like she has been, and have a media attorney on call who can discern Thomas and Piers Morgan crossing the line legally. They are so desperate for attention, but they have attorneys on that show making sure that they go far without being sued because Piers’ methods have fans. He knows how to generate viewers. I couldn’t watch the video, either.

      Being hunted by a narcissist is hard. Once it had gotten to the point when you are done and reject them permanently by ending all opportunities for contact, they keep going because it is impossible to satisfy them and they feel ownership of you. Thomas happens to have an ally whose toxicity appeals to many, many toxic people. Rarely do when know of families that go this far, but the White Markles are so jealous and they have an unlimited platform of true believers in the British Press. Lot’s of us on CB know narcissism, yet is it little understood by many people. If you have a toxic parent or partner, you can see it clearly.

      Meghan and Harry need a DVRO, but you can only get that if the jurisdiction you are in sees emotional abuse as domestic violence.

      • Guest with Cat says:

        @Christina, very well said.

        I have had the pleasure of meeting many lovely people from the UK over my lifetime. I feel bad that the more virulent, toxic aspects of their press seem to hold so much power and influence and are able to highlight the worst that humanity has to offer. Exploiting someone’s mentally unbalanced family members like this is evil.

    • A says:

      You’ve got it 100% right about why people are induced into hating them so much. The tabloid press knows their audience. They know that people in general have a great deal of insecurity about themselves. It doesn’t particularly matter which subset of the population it is, although they absolutely tailor certain headlines to certain groups of people no doubt. They know that people like narratives. They know people are insecure, and they’re externalizing that insecurity by offering them targets to be cruel to. If you can tear someone else down, you feel better about yourself. But when you stop having someone to tear down, what are you left with?

      I think the toxicity of the royals is exactly why Meghan and Harry chose to move to Canada. They’re in a place that’s not even just a ocean apart. It’s an ocean and a whole continent apart. That distance fully enables them to ignore any of the pleas the RF issues through the press for their return. That toxicity is what motivated Meghan to fully cut off her father and never speak to him again. Both families in this situation only care about themselves and what THEY can get out of Harry and Meghan. I think Harry especially has fully wised up to just how narcissistic the BRF is. I would not be surprised if he’s created some serious boundaries between himself and them at this point.

  28. Feeshalori says:

    I absolutely refuse to watch these clips of this subhuman thing and only read about him on this site. When Piers Morgan is aiding and abetting him, you know that this is less of an interview and just vicious, abusive mudslinging. l also have to wonder why there are no ramifications against this hate-mongering loose cannon that calls himself a journalist. He’s a rabid animal and I’m just as disgusted at those who employ him. I hope karma comes for the two of them big time.

  29. TheOriginalMia says:

    He’s pathetic. Every time he opens his mouth, every time a British tab/news show puts him on camera, he makes the Sussexes’ case. I’m surprised the attorneys for the DM/Sun haven’t put a stop to his appearances. I guess they really are trying to harass Meghan into dropping her suit, but it won’t work. Thomas no longer has the power to hurt her. He gave it his best shot and she survived. He’s shouting into the void. Karma will come for him and Piers.

  30. Lisa says:

    Just when I think he could not sink any lower he manages to find a new bottom. Unhinged threatening and harassing interview. I hope lawyers can intervene.

  31. Belinda says:

    I cannot understand why there is reporting on this WITHOUT the exposure of the toxicity of both the people involved and the coverage!!
    Here is one of the few places where the obvious lies are called out.

    Why is that?! How can that be, that there is coverage of this … situation … and the people like toxic Dad and Piss Morgan do not get called out.
    I’m sure it can be done in a good journalistic way, without heated language (that I use because it really pisses me off at this point). This is a journalistic failure!

    • Christina says:

      Belinda, Harry and Meghan are targets to protect Andrew and the toxic, jealous behavior of Charles and William. The Queen hated Diana. No one in media really discusses how bad the Queen handled Diana except for Kaiser. It’s like they view her as a feeble old grandma. She is the freakin’ Queen of England, and she can’t hide her petty. She is good at holding her emotions until it’s time to allow for the destruction of people to keep the monarchy going, and, when the media and British people target someone for hate, it’s convenient for the Queen’s interests.

  32. lanne says:

    How is this acceptable? How can the British media allow this to happen? This is ITV, not a tabloid! Do they not have laws against slander in the UK? Doesn’t this go against any journalistic standards? And what on earth does Piers Morgan want to accomplish? Why doesn’t anyone in the media speak out about this? The whole British media is complicit by their silence. Stay far, far away Meghan and Harry! They should never set foot in the UK again if this is how they will be treated.

  33. Eribra says:

    I have a mom like this, if I eas famous she would totally have been T. Markle. Poverty prevented her from forcing herself on me and I did not speak to her the last 8 years of her life. I cringe for Meghan, thr humiliation she should not feel but still probably does. I hate to be morbid but one day he’ll die and she will hopefully be free

    • Who ARE These People? says:

      It’s not morbid; it’s realistic to look at his age and apparent level of health. She’s likely been doing the work in advance to prepare herself for his departure from the airwaves of life. It could be a complicated grief but at least he’ll be gone for good.

  34. L4frimaire says:

    I don’t get what people want out of these toxic interviews. Meghan and Harry have left the country, are on the other side of the world but the Brits can’t let this go. What more do they want? Piers Morgan railed against Meghan continuously and told her to go back to America, so they left. He really is pathetic and to let him do this stunt on national tv makes the UK look like a sick joke that enables misogyny and racism. Now there are weird articles saying the Royal family want the Sussexes to come back and they don’t have to do anything but basically be under house arrest. It’s just becoming tiresome and the world is moving on. With all going on, you’d think the Brits had real political issues at home to deal with, as well as the rest of the Royals to focus on. Deal with the pedophile who was letting his friends Maxwell and Epstein in and out of Buckingham Palace.

    • Guest with Cat says:

      @L4frimaire. I listened to the entirety of the clip embedded on this site and it’s really clear this particular interview is a crappy veiled threat to get Meghan to drop her lawsuit against the Daily Mail. Piers even maneuvered a mention of Kobe Bryant into the conversation and Tom’s response to that almost sounded like an allusion to Meghan’s safety. He could, however, easily explain it away as meaning life contains nasty surprises to young and old alike, and so the remarks about his own age and poor health are irrelevant.

      I can tell in all of Toxic Tom’s interviews that no parts of them are left to chance and all key talking points are choreographed in advance. His responses never seem to require much of a natural pause for thought and reflection. They flow out and hit the key points the Mail is always making…bam, bam, bam.

      Meghan apparently isnt the only actor in the family.

    • And that’s probably why this is a big story. Britain, like the USA, has serious problems. However, getting the public to sink to their lowest common denominator gives each government /power structure enough distraction to continue on acting on the real problems any way they want.

  35. kerwood says:

    My heart breaks for Meghan. The one man who should love her from her first breath to his last is a leader in the campaign of racist abuse and hatred against her. And Harry must be so concerned and so full of rage at the threat this creature poses to his wife and son.

    It’s hard to look at pictures of this man because he seems to be the personification of evil. His common, ugly face defines the ‘banality of evil’.

    When will Piers Morgan be stopped? Why is this man allowed to continue to harass the Duchess of Sussex? The fact that he’s been able to continue for so long shows that what he’s doing is acceptable to a lot of people, all the way up to the throne of England. Mention of the possibility that the Duchess of Cambridge wore hair extensions set the palace in motion. But this…THIS is okay with them. And the people who take pleasure in this are just as complicit.

    The tabloids must be terrified if they’re unleashing this monster. I know it must be so hard, but I hope Meghan can endure this abuse and bring them all down.

    I have a feeling that the British media won’t be happy until they can broadcast images of ANOTHER ‘Windsor wife’ lying bleeding in the street.

  36. Digital Unicorn says:

    Evil Papa Smurf is a man who is high off his own sh!t and let him carry on with his verbal BS as the Sussex’s lawyers will be taking notes. There is no way he will travel to the UK, let alone take the stand – this is all part of his twisted plan to make Meghan come to him, to regain control over her.

    His hatred of Harry is driven by the fact that Meghan has chosen her husband and son over the pathetic excuse for a man.

  37. Oliviajoy1995 says:

    Jesus this guy has a punchable face. He’s going to give an interview every 30 days until she talks to him?? Eventually he’ll run out of stuff to talk about. This guy is such a toxic douchebag.

  38. Beach Dreams says:

    Piers and the rest of the garbage British media are going to keep pulling these stunts because of the lawsuits. These people are so accustomed to bullying their way out of the trouble that they cause. I do find it interesting that Toxic Tom name-checked Jason. Yes Harry was under KP at that point, but William ran the show and KP always prioritized him and his interests. Between this and Tom Bradby’s claim that terrible things were said/done around the time of the wedding, I’m getting some ideas of what some of those things could’ve been.

  39. olive says:

    please stop giving this awful man even more attention by posting every interview he does and spreading his abusive BS even further.

  40. Evil Owl says:

    Brit WOC here. My friends and I didn’t like Meghan pre Sussexit because we thought everything about her seemed performative and insincere. But most of us including me, are definitely warming up to her after witnessing the vile, venom spewed garbage that Piers Morgan has been inflicting upon her. It’s shocking that he hasn’t been legally restrained, his vendetta is personal. So whatever he set out to do to destroy her is backfiring because her critics are actually staring to defend her now seeing Toxic Tom and his rage on full display. Simply because not many people in Great Britain want to agree with Piers fecking Morgan. He might have actually gained Meghan some credibility points by targeting her, if you look at it.

    • Bohemian Angel says:

      EVIL OWL Only NOW are you seeing the crazy hateful obsession Piers Morgan has for Meghan, this has been going on for a good while now but you as a WOC and your friends only now see this when she has vacated the country? And now you like her… wtaf. As a fellow British WOC I have seen the obvious racism from ALL media since the Straight Outta Compton headline in the daily fail.

    • Beach Dreams says:

      LOL this is so pathetic and transparent on your part.

    • A says:

      “performative and insincere” You mean she’s biracial, part black, and visibly good at her job. I fixed that for you.

  41. ariel says:

    As far as I am concerned, Good Morning Britain is just shy of being a terrorist organization.
    Everyone involved in decision making is garbage.
    Turning a blind eye to racism, abuse and toxic white men- is garbage.
    Yes Thomas is garbage- but what assholes keep giving him oxygen?
    Good Morning Britain.

  42. Snap Happy says:

    The saddest part of this is detractors of Meghan are so blinded by their racist hate they refuse to acknowledge the blatant abuse of her father. His words send shivers down my back.

  43. kerwood says:

    Both Thomas Markle and Piers Morgan seem to be obsessed with Meghan. They both (especially Markle) view Harry as a rival. This is sick. These men can’t PHYSICALLY rape Meghan, so they’re going to try and do through the media. And the people who consume this shit are helping to hold her down. THIS is the lot of an UPPITY Black woman.

    • kelleybelle says:

      I’ve said it before: Harry can have Meghan and Sr. cannot, nor can Piers. Sr. is a perv and is jealous of Harry. It’s obvious … and profoundly sick.

  44. Sass says:

    I just wanted to read the title of the video. Imagine my horror as the video began and I wildly started pressing keys in a panic to stop the video before I could hear either of their repugnant voices.

  45. RoyalBlue says:

    I don’t give them the clicks and I won’t give the interview the time of day. What I am wondering is, where are the Kate stans now and what do they have to say about this abuse. Their silence is complicity and perhaps they think Meghan somehow deserves this. They are the silent majority that voted trump in, they are the silent majority that still love to be ruled by a family.

  46. Ennie says:

    Piers Morgan and Thomas Markle, the former must had been salivating and excited about trying to hurt her in such a personal way.
    The father, there is absolutely not going back for him. All those people saying “call your father, make amends”, please, kindly, shut up.

  47. Izzy says:

    I did force my way to sit through this dumpster fire of an interview (and took a shower after), but what caught my ear was that Sr was walking back his “time to take care of Daddy” remarks and clarifying that it wasn’t about money, he meant he was now taking care of himself, blah blah. Obviously someone (oh, HI Poor Jason) talked to him about extorting the RF on TV.

  48. Mary says:

    I watched a bit of the tape. Sharon Osbourne knows what she is talking about.

    • SomeChick says:

      What did Sharon say? Do tell!

      • Mary says:

        Sharon said he was a drunk and got raked over the coals for it by Sam and Tom. She later apologizd but I believe her when she says she knows the signs of alcohol and substance abuse.

  49. Abena Asantewaa says:

    Piers Morgan has become an abusive bully, who is trying desperately to crush Meghan, and also I see he is on a crusade to destroy and embarass Meghan, because this interview does not make any sense. The Daily Mail and Peirs are blackmailing them to drop their suit, but I hope it does not work. What the hell is ITV allowing Piers Morgan, to use this company for his personal vendetta against a defenceless woman. Thomas Markle won’t be a reliable witness.

  50. Miriam says:

    @Kaiser the suspicion around Jason becomes credible if you saw the full clip as he starts off by saying ‘harry and meghan told me not to apologise for staging these pictures but I went ahead and talked to jason and he said he’s taking care of it’ ,the fact that jason ignored H&M’s wishes tells me he’s probably behind arranging these interviews and could’ve even sent the guy who convinced him to sell the letters(this is around the time household split) but they didnt know that Meghan had a copy or foresee her suing.

    The lawsuits will expose BOTH palace/courtiers and tabloids and as such both are desperate to get the Sussexs to drop this. These fools underestimated them

    • aquarius64 says:

      Which is why Evil Papa Smurf’s downfall is inevitable. He’s a liability to too many people.

    • SomeChick says:

      If he actually said, “Harry and Meghan” that says a lot right there. He considers her chattel. And (now that she’s distinguished herself) he wants his prize pony.

      Disgusting. Hopefully *most* people will see through it.

  51. anon says:

    The only thing that matters to Thomas Markle at this sorry juncture is MONEY. He’s being paid to troll and harass his own daughter. Apparently, he seems to forget that his grandson is going to see all of this some day and will not form a favorable opinion of this complete loser, who is a stark reminder that you can’t choose your family, but you can sure AF cut them off.

    But what he fails to realize is that at some point, those same tabs and outlets are going to lose interest and his gravy train will come to an end. So, enjoy those double bacon cheeseburgers while you can, loser. Oh, and one more thing: Take a f**king bath, will ya?

    • BarbN says:

      I sincerely hope that Thomas Markle senior is long gone to his “reward” before Archie grows up. Given the state of TM’s health, I’m about 99% sure my hopes will be realized.

  52. A says:

    It’s crucial that people see how there’s so little difference between Thomas Markle and the royals at this time. They’re both saying pretty much the same thing, which is to use a mixture of sweet talking and threats to get the Sussexes “back in line.” Toxic and abusive people can’t abide by the fact that you’ve ever walked away. It rots their brain in a truly spectacular way that someone wouldn’t want to be around them for any reason. They really think they have every right to treat you like sh-t and if you take it away from them, you’re disrespecting them. Thomas Markle is a classic example of that. I hope he gets destroyed in the lawsuit when he testifies.

  53. Whatnow says:

    Does anybody know the approximate court date when the lawsuit will be presented?

  54. aquarius64 says:

    Thomas Markle – that lumbering bag of pus and chicken grease.

    It’s obvious he has been coached in the responses in the interviews. The Fail knows it’s going to lose the lawsuit so it deploys the useful idiot to emotionally blackmail Meghan to drop the suit. It made me mad about this new round of abuse, but Meghan’s lawyers may be taking notes, watching the interviews for contradictions, comparing for similar statements made in the Fail’s brief and articles. And they will file in court to have Daddy testify – call his bluff.

  55. Busy Bee says:

    There is zero chance he will be called to testify in court on behalf of the DM. He will be ripped to shreds by any competent lawyer. They are all hoping that by giving him air time now that Meghan and Harry will drop all their complaints so they don’t have to deal with him. That isn’t going to happen.

  56. Jodi says:

    I cannot stress enough how toxic and abusive this man is. and PM as well. At what point does this become harassment? Where are the protections against this? Narcissists can not fathom losing control of their targets. They just continue to escalate. And there are people out there defending him. It’s hard not to lose hope about society reading some of those comments tearing H & M apart. How people are unable to see that Tom and PM are abusive is beyond me. It’s horrifying. Meanwhile, people are lauding the “traditionalism” of the monarchy (aka don’t rock the boat) and they all stay silent about Andrew and penchant for young girls, rape and human trafficking.

    • aquarius64 says:

      The media will throw Bad Dad under the bus if Markle strays off his lease and does something that crosses the serious legal line and his press enablers can be held liable. He walked back his time to take care of Daddy comment because someone (DM lawyers I guess) told him he could be charged with extortion. DM needs Markle to get Meghan to drop the lawsuit, but if it doesn’t work the next best thing to break her (they think) is to have Bad Dad face criminal charges. The Fail will make money because it knows a lot of people are rooting for Evil Papa Smurf’s downfall (therefore drives clicks). They will cooperate with the prosecution for immunity. It also help sell the narrative that Meghan is trash not because her white relatives says she’s trash – it’s because THEY are trash. You are the family you’re born into and not what you made yourself into. That sells to the classists.

  57. Dottie says:

    I don’t think the Cambridges are behind this. I couldn’t even watch this. Peirs is pretty much hated just like there are media personalities in the US who are hated. Looks like Meghans dad is going to continue to haunt them he doesn’t seem to get Meghan doesn’t want him around her or her little family. That is her choice. I think he might be jealous of Doria!

  58. Willz (not THAT one) says:

    I’m late to the party, I know, but how embarrassing! I cringe for both of them. On top of the fact that they’re both melodramatic pieces of toxic waste, they’re brainless. (TM & PM, I mean) At this point there is literally nothing Meghan can do about this situation besides staying the course of not acknowledging. Which makes the constant interviews even worse. What in the hell does PM and GMB think they’re going to accomplish by airing these? Absolutely nothing. It’s literally just a money grab by two nasty old men.

  59. aquarius64 says:

    I went on Yahoo news to look at the comments section of the story on this hot mess of an interwiew. Bad Dad has lost in the court of public opinion big time. Rotten father looking for a pay day is the general consensus with occasional questions of mental state. It doesn’t matter that the Fail’s commentariat sides with Evil Papa Smurf; outside that bubble Bad Dad is Harry’s Monster in Law. DM better think twice about putting Markle on the stand if this is a jury trial.

  60. HPB says:

    Clearly, Piers and Thomas are angry white men. How dare the biracial distance herself from them? The ignorance, the bullying, the lying on air? Thomas wants fame more than his daughter… money, money! Where was he when his daughter married her first husband? Oh, only when she married a Prince did he imagine $$$$ dollar signs. She should keep her baby
    Zillions of Miles from this pos!@@ personally, they should never reconcile. He has caused tension and stress throughout her pregnancy. Harmful words during her pregnancy! No respect! Now, let’s see is Sammy and dad will out duel each other (let’s keep count) trying to get on British TV to smear Megan. They should stop. Meghan doesn’t even know they exist. Meghan, please live your life and never return to Thomas Markle’s dim-witted world. Listen: The man wants to be paid. Get Piers Morgan off of British news. There’s more important topics.
