Trump Still Claims He Never Called Meghan Markle Nasty, Despite Audio Recording

President Donald Trump is still facing questions about comments he directed toward Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, ahead of his visit to the United Kingdom.

In an interview with Piers Morgan for “Good Morning Britain,” the president maintained his stance that he never called the former Meghan Markle “nasty” — despite an audio recording clearly proving he did.

“And I said, ‘Wow, I didn’t know she was nasty,'” Trump said. “I wasn’t referring to, ‘She’s nasty,’ I said, ‘She was nasty about me.”

Watch the video below:

But Trump never clarified his apparent intention of solely characterizing Meghan’s remarks as “nasty” in the initial interview — all he said was that he “didn’t know she was nasty” when asked about her past criticisms of him.

“And when you see that transcript, and you see it’s the exact opposite of what they said,” Trump claimed in the new interview.

But as Morgan attempted to guide Trump out of the hole he dug for himself with a generous interpretation of the quote, Trump pushed back and continued to attack the media for reporting on his remarks.

“I could see it was ambiguous,” Morgan said when Trump asked if he had reviewed the transcript of the initial interview.

“No, no, no,” Trump fired back. “I don’t think it was ambiguous.”

As for how the remarks may have impacted his interactions with the British royal family during his ongoing visit to the United Kingdom, Trump denied any awkward moments between him and Prince Harry, Meghan’s husband.

“Just the opposite. In fact, he spent a lot of time talking to Ivanka and talking to my family,” Trump said of the Duke of Sussex. “I went up, he couldn’t have been nicer.”

Is the press going to hold Markle accountable? She still has head in Hollywood no wonder she is having trouble fitting in to her new family.

Our President was asked by a British journalist a day before his trip about Meghan’s remarks about HIM, during the 2016 election…. the journalist than told the President she had said she was voting for Hillary Clinton, didn’t want him elected and would leave the country if he was elected,… The President actually took the High Road and said He didn’t know anything about “HER NASTY”:remarks at the time… he said he was glad she had moved to Britain and He was sure she would do well and… Read more »

Lots of people are still confused by King Donald The Loser’s use of lying. It’s not a bug, it’s a feature.

The King uses his lying as a way of showing his power. The more outrageous the lie that he gets called out on the better. He denies it, even in the face of clear evidence that he is lying. It won’t matter. Nobody kicks him out of office over it, therefore that helps prop him up even more in the eyes of his cult.

Fascism 101.
