OK, enough is enough. It’s time to shut Thomas Markle down. Everything that has come from his mouth since TMZ got his phone number hasn’t been good. Maybe it’s all about the dollar bills, or maybe he’s just a sad, lonely guy who calls them up because he wants someone to talk to. Whatever the case, it’s easy for us onlookers to see that Thomas is being taken advantage of, and it’s also clear that Thomas hasn’t quite figured it out yet.
Because, guess what? Thomas spoke to TMZ again. That’s right, despite his interview with Good Morning Britain and despite sources telling The Sun that he’s upset he didn’t get a Father’s Day card, he’s still talking. And this time he compared himself to Donald Trump and dared to mention POTUS and The Queen in the same sentence.
“If the Queen is willing to meet our arrogant and insensitive president she has no excuse not to meet me, I’m nowhere near as bad,” Markle told TMZ regarding Trump’s upcoming trip to the U.K.
Thomas added that he still hasn’t spoken to Meghan — or anyone from the Palace, for that matter — since his GMB interview and thinks the Royal Family has put him in the “penalty box” for his surprise sit-down.
OK, so much to pick apart here. Firstly, maybe Thomas shouldn’t be talking about Her Majesty. Like, ever. At least, not publicly and certainly not to TMZ. Secondly, Thomas also shouldn’t be giving The Queen sh*t for meeting with Trump instead of him. Dotard or not, it’s the freaking President of The United States. The fact that Markle feels he’s owed this privilege is almost laughable.
If he had been getting the benefit of the doubt before this, that may no longer be the case. Thomas is a grown man making these choices, right? Well ok, perhaps not quite. He may very well be getting manipulated by his other daughter, Meghan’s half-sister, Samantha. If that reference to the “penalty box” sounds familiar, it’s because you’ve heard it before. It’s the exact phrase Samantha used to describe Meghan’s mom, Doria Ragland, at the royal wedding, saying she looked like a “hockey player in the penalty box.” Coincidence? Or the one who’s really in cahoots with TMZ and pulling all the strings?
Whatever the case, it’s time the royals do something about this instead of leaving this loose cannon to spout off more to TMZ, or frankly, anyone who will pay him. When it comes down to it, this is Meghan’s father, not her estranged half-sister trying to get a piece of the royal pie. They have professional PR teams to deal with this kind of thing and they need to take control before it gets out of hand.
