Thomas Markle made his triumphant return to British airwaves last night

In April of this year, Thomas Markle announced his plans to fly to London for the Jubbly. He was invited to stay with Lady Colin Campbell, and there were plans afoot to treat him like a zoo animal. The tabloids were drooling with anticipation of all of the photo set-ups they would do with him. Then the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced that they would go to the Jubbly (after being invited by the Queen). Suddenly, Thomas Markle was hospitalized with stroke-like symptoms. I wondered if the stroke narrative was always the plan, or if it was a last-minute scheme cooked up by the Markles, with coordination from the British tabloids. I still don’t know. By late May, Toxic Tom had been released from the hospital and his first call was to the tabloids. He waited a few months and now he’s back, baby.

Meghan Markle’s estranged dad has made his first public appearance since suffering a stroke over two months ago.

Thomas Markle has reappeared in the public eye once more in a video shown during an interview his son gave where he opened up about his 77-year-old dad’s recovery.

The video, shown on GB News in an interview with Thomas Markle Jr, showed the man writing on a whiteboard to communicate after he lost most of his ability to speak following the stroke.

The sign he wrote, shown on Dan Wootton’s show, read: “Hi Dan, Thank you and the British people for the best wishes and good will.”

Thomas Markle suffered a stroke on May 23 and spent five days in hospital.

[From The Daily Mirror]

Sometimes I just have to sit back and allow the dysfunction of the British media to wash over me. Think about how utterly bizarre this is, that the Sussexes left Salt Island in March 2020, and more than two years later, British media outlets are still inviting Meghan’s trash relatives on air for “interviews.” Surely, there’s more important news happening in the UK? “Let’s check in with Meghan Markle’s estranged half-brother and ask him his opinions on whatever made up royal stories are going around this week!” They honestly asked Tom Jr. about Meghan’s “plans” to run for office. This family, my God. PS… I tried to watch the GB News video and I could only make it through twenty seconds.

    Another distraction from the prince Charles story by the media

  2. C-Shell says:

    At least GB News is a fairly lame venue for this horsesh!t, but this cretin did not have a freakin’ stroke. But even if he did, he knows zip about the Sussexes and has nothing whatsoever to reveal. TMJr even less than zip.

  3. ThatsNotOkay says:

    Does this mean we’ll never have to listen to him speak again? Or will he make a “miraculous” recovery once he finds out no one has the time or fucks to decipher his chicken scratch?

  4. Eurydice says:

    Never mind Thomas Markle – I’m sending best wishes and good will to you. Even 20 seconds of a Markle interview is an heroic act.

  5. K8erade says:

    I know Thomas is faking. Sharp Hospital has one of the best stroke units in Southern California at a hospital further north in San Diego. The hospital in San Diego is very small. I had a loved one go there. They would have transferred him there if he had a stroke.

    • Olivia says:

      If he had been having a stroke, he would have been taken to the nearest hospital with appropriate facilities, and he would have had a cardiac monitor, BP cuff and O2 sensor in place. He would also have been immediately whisked off for a CT scan. There would have been no time for selfies or other photos—in fact, no one would have been allowed in at that point. He also wouldn’t have been in that poor position on the gurney, which could have compromised his airway. Thomas is a manipulator, but not very good at making his scams look believable.

  6. Jasper says:

    So much for Harry and Meghan being irrelevant. These so called “journalists ” are constantly having to interview dregs like Markle Snr and Jnr for “insider information ” when it’s common knowledge that they know next to nothing and can only spout lies. It’s a shame hate is so profitable.

    • kelleybelle says:

      Next to nothing? They know nothing. Less than nothing, if that’s possible. And I object to the word “estranged” when it comes to Jr. … there was never a relationship there so estrangement is impossible. He’s seen her probably 3 times in more than 30 years. One more time than Scam because Jr. came to his grandmother’s funeral, the scammer did not.

  7. MsIam says:

    Worst liars money can buy. But I guess Markle Sr and Jr are offering a two for one discount now. You would think even the trashloid media should know that no one is paying attention to these idiots.

  8. TOM says:

    That “best wishes and good will” doesn’t sound quite right to my Midwestern ear. Any other USAians getting British ghostwriting vibes?

    I’m thinking about what I’d say. It’d be something like Thanks for the get well wishes and good thoughts. Something like that.

    The guy’s a big fake.

    • Miranda says:

      I don’t even think it sounds British! No one talks like that, do they? It sounds like a phrase that a Civil War soldier might have used to sign off in a Christmas letter to his mother.

    • Blithe says:

      I think he’s trying to code switch — without having a clue about the code.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Am British and we don’t speak like that – even the aristo’s don’t.

      I think who ever told him to write that has been reading too much Charles Dickens.

    • Saucy&Sassy says:

      Tom, I thought about this and decided I’d say something like: Thank you, Dan, and the British people for their best wishes.” I can’t come up with anything for “good will”. Does he know that’s one word, not two? I just wouldn’t put a sentence together like that. Where in the heck did he get that phrase?

  9. Amy Bee says:

    Toxic Tom has to do what he can to keep those cheques coming in.

  10. Harper says:

    They are really sticking with this white board gag.

  11. Sunday says:

    Lord I hate this man.

    • kelleybelle says:

      He is as repulsive as they come.

      • Both Sides Now says:

        They all are. The minute Meghan was involved with Harry, these rats all came out of the woodwork to profit off of Meghan to spew their hatred and support the lies of the BM.

        Their con artists actions run deep in that family.

  12. Hopey says:


    I seriously wonder who on struggle isle actually endorses this kind of behavior: which brit sincerely believes that its perfectly normal for a member of the 4th estate to call up a citizen of another country, whose only tenuous relationship to britain and anything at all to do with britain is that the daughter of said citizen is married to a member of the royal family low down in the line of succession?

    Lets look at a few equivalent examples that arent (without even commenting on the glaring racism of it all): kHATE’s father? Edo’s father? Eugenie’s husband’s father?

    The only reason they continue to resurrect toxictom and inflict him on the sensibilities of those remaining brits who still can be described as decent human beings, is to continue their campaign of TRYING to shame and dEsTrOOOOOOOOyyyyy Meghan.

    And the only reason they started this campaign to TRY to shame and dEsTrOy Meghan is because they feel lower than dogshidt that she came, looked at the highest symbol of their sense of self-importance in the world, survived their attempt to kill her off, and said: this is such a sad, pathetic, little facade. And her husband, the jewel in their crown, agreed with her and said: let’s bounce; we can do soooooo much better on our own.

    And so they left………after 18 months of trying to fit their square-peg self into the dank empty round hole of the british anachronism, aka monarchy.

    Folks……..theyre gonna continue self-flagellating until more of us in the rest of the sane parts of the world laugh loudly and sustainedly enough at them.

    Well I saw Bad Dad has surfaced on GBN on Twitter. I think TT slipped up on one of the Big Lies. The claim he made about Meghan’s Northwestern tuition, he can’t prove he paid; and in Bower’s book (according to a Twitter user) he paid 45K for Meghan’s 4 years at NWU. The cost during Meghan’s time at NWU is three times the amount TT quoted to Bower. That shoots down the claim Bad Dad paid for all of Meghan’s college costs. The Markles are grifting the BM and I love it.

  14. HamsterJam says:

    His court case against Raynor was supposed to resume yesterday, wonder when we will hear about that.

    • aquarius64 says:

      The lawsuit is still going. Raynar is requesting a restraining order on Bad Dad. TT threaded to kill Raynar in Bower’s book.

  15. kelleybelle says:

    Is this greasy sh*t-heap still talking? Why? He hasn’t seen his daughter since 2011 nor spoken to her in 4 years. Scummy and Dummy know even less. Nice to see that British media hasn’t crawled out of the sewer yet. *yawn*

  16. SuzieQ says:

    I’m going to go to hell for this, but if only his “stroke” had left him unable to speak.

    (Seriously angry for the good people I know whose speech has been affected by genuine strokes.)

    • Jennifer says:

      He doesn’t have actual strokes, he just fakes them for the telly to get his arse out of trouble.


  17. Dee says:

    To quote Broadcast News, I certainly hope he dies soon.

  18. Bisynaptic says:

    “Stroke” LOL
    —at this point, it’s elder abuse, dragging this man out, every time the rota needs to distract.

  19. L4Frimaire says:

    What news can this man even provide these trash tabloids at this time? It’s not like he has any idea what Meghan is doing and he himself has no news of value to add. I honestly think at this stage he thinks they are interested in him for himself alone. This man has never set foot in the UK, but he’s thanking the British people like he’s some celebrity or minor royal. Idiots, all of them!

  20. Feebee says:

    Poor Meghan. It’d be one thing if it was a simply a media onslaught but to have her toxic family doing such heavy lifting must be heartbreaking no matter how she’s compartmentalised it.
