Liberal Senator Hollie Hughes blasts Meghan Markle on Dan Wootton Tonight

Liberal Senator for NSW Hollie Hughes has spoken out about the backlash she received over comments about Meghan Markle, saying she doesn’t like the Duchess of Sussex.

She was slammed online for describing Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as “awful, revolting, revolting people” in an extraordinary spray on the eve of Queen Elizabeth’s funeral.

During an interview with GB News’ Dan Wootton Tonightavailable to stream on Flash, Senator Hughes said the reaction she received was “extraordinary.”

“The backlash I received from some of these people, I seem to have turned them into monarchists overnight in the way that they support Meghan and the family,” she said on the show.

“It’s extraordinary. Perhaps if I say something about [Prince] Andrew, I can boost his PR as well.”

The politician said her comments about Meghan had nothing to do with race.

“The way that I feel about her and think about her has nothing to do with race,” she said.

“The fact that she had to apologize to a court for misleading them when she said she had nothing to do with the unauthorized biography but apparently did.

“When she made claims around Nelson Mandela kind of cheering in the streets around South Africa.

“All of these sorts of things have built into a narrative that sorry, I just don’t really like the woman and I don’t know the woman but I don’t like her.”

Senator Hughes went on to describe the backlash as “a great irony.”

“The great irony that I found people were criticizing me saying, ‘how can you say this about her, you don’t know her? You’re a vile, vile human,” she said.

“And I’m like, ‘Well, you don’t know me.’ Have you heard of the definition of irony in people? I mean, it is just extraordinary.”

Earlier this month, Senator Hughes appeared on Sky News where she launched the blistering attack as Prince Harry prepared to attend the funeral of his grandmother.

She largely blamed the former Suits actress for the couple’s estrangement from the royal family.

“I think she’s had a terrible influence over him,” Senator Hughes said. “She’s just a horrible human. They’re awful, revolting, revolting people.”

The politician’s verbal outburst caused a stir online with some social media users complaining it was over the line.

“Has Hollie Hughes Met Meghan Markle, I don’t think so. Harry and Megan love each other, leave them alone,” said Jeanne Hitchock.

“Shame on her and shame on anyone who thinks this is appropriate behavior for an Australian politician,” said Kate Lee.

“Never heard of Hollie Hughes till today and already know she is a stain on Australian politics,” another Twitter user said.

“What a horrid human to focus her hate on someone she’s never met when the Queen is being remembered.”
