Friday 1 July 2022 02:39 PM MEGHAN MCCAIN: Meghan Markle should run for president and eat deep-fried Oreos ... trends now
Meghan Markle is suffering serious delusions if she truly believes that she will ever become President of the United States of America.
There, I said it.
Now can we please stop entertaining this abject stupidity.
The first inklings of this ridiculous idea surfaced in 2020 when 'a close friend of the royal' told Vanity Fair that 'The Duchess' refused to give up her American citizenship, because she had designs on the White House.
Last year, she fueled the fantasy again with reports that she was networking with senior Democrats.
After the tragedy in Uvalde, Texas, she arrived out of the blue for a tasteless photo-op at a memorial for the victims.
And this week she set the rumor mill spinning again when she sat down with feminist icon Gloria Steinem for an interview with Vogue Magazine -- arguably the least influential political magazine in the country -- to talk about the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe V. Wade.
Meghan recounted Prince Harry's 'guttural' reaction to ruling, because 'my husband is a feminist.'
She went on to say that she and Gloria will be 'taking a trip to DC together soon.'
Yes -- I'm sure you will.
I didn't always feel this way about Meghan.
I, like millions of other Americans, first heard her name when she got engaged to Prince Harry.

You want to be president and make it to the Emerald City? You got to make your way through Oz first and there's nothing glamorous about that.

Everything about their relationship seemed hopeful and positive. Their union appeared to symbolize progress and modernity.
Meghan is older than Harry, divorced and biracial. She appeared to be independent and vocal about the world in a way that we had not seen among other modern royals.
It was exciting for Americans to finally share in the pomp and circumstance of a royal wedding. (Unless you count Jay-Z and Beyoncé.)
But four years later, my opinion of both has shifted.
I didn't understand their need to air all the royal dirty laundry to Oprah like a confessional in an episode of The Kardashians.
But I still felt inclined to publicly support Meghan because the allegations of racism in the Royal Family were so disturbing.
Then Prince Harry started trashing his new adoptive country, as Meghan cheered him on.
He called the First Amendment 'bonkers' and it went on from there with increasingly woke and judgmental rhetoric about conservative values and anything that wasn't straight out of the Obama ideological playbook.
In fact, Harry and Meghan don't really do much of anything anymore except sign podcasts deals that fail to produce podcasts and bitch about everything that is wrong with America.
Which brings us back to Meghan's alleged presidential ambitions.
First, it is a privilege to run for President of the United States and these are desperate times in our country.
