British television personality Piers Morgan laid into the wayward Prince Harry after the latter referred to the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment protecting free speech as “bonkers.”
As Fox News reports:
“I don’t want to start sort of going down the First Amendment route because that’s a huge subject and one in which I don’t understand because I’ve only been here a short period of time,” Harry told the hosts. “But, you can find a loophole in anything. And you can capitalize or exploit what’s not said rather than uphold what is said.”
“I’ve got so much I want to say about the First Amendment as I sort of understand it, but it is bonkers,” he concluded.
Morgan shot back with a scathing op-ed:
“Like so much of the absurd Meghan-inspired psychobabble that spews out of [Harry’s] mouth, none of this makes any sense, and he clearly doesn’t understand what he’s saying either.”…
“Though we can safely assume that he just hates anything which affords any protection to journalists to say things he doesn’t like because that has been a familiar theme from the indignant media-loathing Prince for the last few years,” Morgan wrote. “It’s the same mindset that makes Meghan think she can complain to the bosses of TV networks when presenters like me refuse to believe her lies – and have them removed from their jobs if we don’t apologize for our impertinence.”
In light of the immense ignorance displayed by Prince Harry when discussing one of the most precious freedoms enjoyed by Americans, perhaps it may be better if he decides to return to his home country. If they will let him back in, that is.
