Hillary Clinton says she feels motherly towards Meghan Markle, slams mainstream media for treating her badly: 'I want to hug her'
The former FLOTUS, who appeared on the show with her daughter Chelsea, said that she feels 'as a mother' when she thinks about Meghan
Meghan Markle has found a new fan in the most unlikely of places.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, in a recent interview with BBC Radio 5 Live, said that she would like to give Meghan a hug adding that the way the royal has been treated for the last three years is "heartbreaking and wrong".
"I think even if you go back and look at social media from the time the engagement was announced, race was clearly an element in it. And to think that some of your—what we would call mainstream—media actually allowed that to be printed in their pages, or amplified, was heartbreaking and wrong."
The former first lady, who appeared on the show with her daughter Chelsea, said that she feels "as a mother" when she thinks about Meghan.
"She has made her own way in the world. And then she falls in love, and he falls in love with her, and everybody should be celebrating that because it is a true love story. You can just look at them and see that," she said. "I feel as a mother. I just want to put my arms around her. Oh my God, I want to hug her! I want to tell her to hang in there. Don't let those bad guys get you down. Keep going. Do what you think is right."
Markle and Prince Harry have recently sued Associated Newspapers, the publisher of Daily Mail and Mail On Sunday, after they published a private letter sent by Meghan to her estranged father. They have been sued for misuse of private information, infringement of copyright and breach of the Data Protection Act 2018.
At the time, Harry released a statement saying, "I have been a silent witness to her private suffering for too long. To stand back and do nothing would be contrary to everything we believe in."
