Dr. Shola Mos-Shogbamimu and Megyn Kelly Offer Contrasting Opinions on the Harry and Meghan Interview

I can’t stress how much I appreciate Kayleigh (and Patrick Adams from Suits) staying on top of the Meghan Markle/Prince Harry business. It is decidedly outside of my wheelhouse, but culturally speaking, it’s important to understand, if only for the way that the Royal Family and the establishment media cling so desperately to narratives that enable systemic racism to thrive both in the UK and here.

To wit: Last night after the interview aired, Megyn Kelly — who lost her very high-paid job with NBC News for defending blackface — questioned the way that Oprah Winfrey, an American icon, conducted the interview.

There is not a GIF that offers a strong enough reaction to that malarkey. In any respect, Megyn Kelly appeared on the morning show of that vile little man Piers Morgan today to continue offering her opinion, because that’s exactly what no one asked for. It sounds exactly like the commentary one might expect from a person who defends blackface.

On the other hand, Piers Morgan also asked Dr. Shola Mos-Shogbamimu to appear on the show. He probably wishes he had not. “Are you out of your godforsaken mind?!”

That’s how it’s done, y’all.
