Dictator-appreciative Trump will brook no dislike of him, especially from a woman. In an interview on Friday, he was informed of Duchess Meghan’s previous vow to move to Canada if he won the election in 2016. Well, he did but Meghan switched up her plans and became a Duchess in the UK instead. Same difference.
The Sun brought up what Meghan said to the Creep-In-Chief’s attention and he handled it with his usual dignified aplomb and maturity by referring to her as “nasty.” This might make his lunch with Meghan’s husband Prince Harry tomorrow a little awkward.
Trump is making his first official state visit to the UK on Monday, accompanied by his entire family (even presidential red-headed stepchild Tiffany!) and will lunch with Queen Elizabeth, Princes William and Harry, and William’s wife Duchess Kate. Duchess Meghan is still out on maternity leave with newborn Archie but the rumors are that they’re keeping her and Trump apart on purpose. Because can’t you just throw a kid into a pram and roll him to lunch with you?
LA—born Meghan, 37, accused him of being “misogynistic” and “divisive” during his 2016 presidential campaign.
The ex-Suits actress also pledged to vote for his rival Hillary Clinton.
Told of Meghan’s barbs by The Sun, Mr Trump insisted it was the first time he’d heard them.
He said: “I didn’t know that. What can I say? I didn’t know that she was nasty.”
And when he was told that Meghan might have intended to just move into her trailer on the Canadian set of her old show Suits so she wouldn’t have to return to a country run by well, him, he responded nonsensically. Per usual.
When told Meghan had threatened to leave for Canada if he won in 2016, he countered: “A lot of people are moving here (to the US).”
Er, ok. Trump did that thing where he completely contradicts himself in the span of a few sentences and voiced support of the “American princess” who’s actually a Duchess.
He predicted she will make “a very good” American princess.
On her joining the Royal Family, he added: “It is nice, and I am sure she will do excellently.
“She will be very good. I hope she does (succeed).”
Trump denied saying that about Meghan, and the official Trump 2020 campaign hilariously denied that Trump referred to Meghan as “nasty” while posting audio of Trump calling her “nasty.”
Fake News CNN is at it again, falsely claiming President Trump called Meghan Markle "nasty." Here is what he actually said. Listen for yourself! pic.twitter.com/kLuPXBLMhf

This presidency has made all of us into that GIF of the befuddled woman with the algebra equations floating around her head.
