After Prince Harry and Meghan Markle urged people to vote in the upcoming U.S. election in a TV appearance for Time magazine, one reporter felt the need to ask President Donald Trump what he thought about it. Trump responded by saying he was “not a fan” of Markle and that he wishes “a lot of luck to Harry because he’s going to need it.”

The internet’s response to the entire situation has been mixed. The die-hard Meghan haters, a group that has a lot of crossover with Trump fans, are busy crowing over the president’s insult at both Markle and her marriage.

Woke Prince Harry and Meghan get out the vote for Biden, Trump responds perfectly
I don’t like trump but what he said about wishing prince harry luck is perfect. Meghan markle is insane and is going to ruin that family.
Trump wishes Prince Harry a lot of luck for being with Meghan Markle “because he’s going to need it”.  I’m dead. Face with tears of joyFace with tears of joyFace with tears of joy

Others are complaining that Harry and Meghan making any kind of statement on U.S. politics is unacceptable behavior for British royals, who are generally supposed to remain neutral on these matters.

Prince Harry has effectively endorsed  @JoeBiden  what is the US election to do with him? he doesn't have a vote and as he still think he's Royal, he is HRH, he's supposed to be politically neutral. As usual, he wants it both ways
Prince Harry poking his woke nose into the US election & effectively telling Americans to vote against President Trump is completely unacceptable behaviour for a member of the Royal Family.
I like a Prince Harry and admire his previous work, but he appears to have lost his senses. If he wants the freedom to speak out on politics, he needs to lose all his royal privileges and titles.

More people pointed out that neither Harry nor Meghan specified who they thought people should vote for. As always, much of the backlash against her has been racist.

"Prince Harry - with an American wife, half-American son, living in America & no longer formally part of the royal family - suggests people should exercise their right to vote. The right wing -" gif of blonde woman smashing things
All Meghan Markle & Prince Harry did was say to vote against hate speech, misinformation, and online bullying.  Ask yourself why that statement would upset Trump and then tell me why you're still voting for him.
Trump on Ghislaine Maxwell: "I just wish her well, frankly." Trump on Meghan Markle: "I'm not a fan of hers and I wish Harry a lot of luck. He's going to need it." Meghan's sin? She and Prince Harry urged Americans to "vote" and to "reject hate speech" and "misinformation."

Meanwhile, many are disgusted with the reporter and the press coverage that followed for even bringing the topic up when there are so many other more serious issues going on. The issues around mail-in ballots and the mass sterilizations being carried out in ICE camps were all mentioned as matters that should be of a higher priority.

So, Predator trump threatened to prevent a peaceful transition of power today as well as threatened to throw away ballots of his choice to help him and a WH reporter asked him a question about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle because fuck democracy right?
If you’re asking Trump about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, you’re a big part of the problem.
Why the fuck are reporters asking him about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle? There's a doctor committing war crimes against migrant women in our custody and 200,000 dead Americans on his bootleg fascist watch.

Buckingham Palace has issued its own response to Harry and Meghan’s video statement, distancing themselves from the pair by saying that “We would not comment. The Duke is not a working member of the Royal Family and any comments he makes are made in a personal capacity.”
