Hillary Clinton Defends Meghan Markle Regarding British Tabloid Treatment

Hillary Clinton is defending Meghan, Duchess of Sussex (AKA Meghan Markle).

The former Secretary of State opened up in an interview with The Sunday Times on Sunday (October 13).

“I do want to say that the way she’s been treated is inexplicable. If the explanation is that she’s biracial, then shame on everybody,” she said, adding that she believes race is “certainly part of it.”

Chelsea Clinton also weighed in on the media’s treatment of Meghan.

“She proudly had a career first and has a voice that she thankfully continues to use. Anyone who has the temerity to break the mold of what has previously been established and expected often, unfortunately, receives criticism and bile that I don’t understand. We’ve seen this pattern repeatedly,” she said.

“I don’t know her, but as someone who respects her, I’m so grateful that she persists, and is unbowed, and is doing work she feels called to do. And isn’t willing to be bullied.”

Earlier in the month, Prince Harry criticized British tabloids for their “ruthless campaign” against his wife amid a lawsuit against The Mail for publishing a private letter Meghan wrote to her father.
