The left’s embrace of victimhood is precisely why serial offendees have been elevated to positions of prominence, but the spell of groupthink may have temporarily worn off Friday when some of the ladies from ABC’s “The View” were less than enamored with Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle’s docuseries trailer.
Clout and wealth haven’t been enough to keep the Duke and Duchess of Sussex from capitalizing on perceived slights committed against them and fancying themselves as living through hardship. While co-host Sunny Hostin appeared ready to perpetuate that narrative with a little help from Sarah Haines, their perspective was not aligned with the others as Ana Navarro took the biggest shot at the royals.
“They have done–they’ve now earned tens and tens of millions of dollars out of their story, which they have been telling, it seems to me, for years now, and they’re very good at,” she stated in a negative light before slamming, “I just wish that every time I saw Meghan and Harry they weren’t crying and wiping away tears.”
As it happened, the conversation had been spurred on by the release of the trailer for the Netflix documentary series, “Harry & Meghan,” which, as previously reported, had been considered by some to be “a declaration of war” against Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton who just set upon their first trip to the United States in nearly a decade.

“So, do you make anything of this release? Do you think it was deliberate?” Joy Behar asked the panel after playing the trailer.
Hostin immediately went on the defensive for the supposedly woe-begotten couple as she replied, “I didn’t realize they had that much power within Netflix, that they could say, ‘We’re gonna drop it now because my brother and his, you know, his wife are coming to the states.”
She then proceeded to harp on claims from Markle that members of the royal family had treated her with racism and that, “She told everyone that she was the target of death threats and racism repeatedly, that the family refused to protect her.”
While Hostin went on to talk about “reports,” making mention of the recent allegations brought forth against William’s godmother Susan Hussey who resigned Wednesday after activist Marlene Headley, who goes by Ngozi Fulani, alleged she was a victim of racism from the royal aide at Buckingham Palace when asked, “Where are you from?” Behar couched on the narrative push and called those claims “hearsay.”
Haines attempted to back Hostin up by asserting she believed all of the claims that Markle had made, but when the co-host went on to claim the royal couple had wanted privacy, Navarro scoffed, “I gotta tell you something, if what they want is privacy and to get away from the royal family, they got a hell of a way of doing it.”
Holy smoke ! I NEVER thought I would ever agree with one word the View ladies said , but on this I agree. They’re taking the victimhood a step too far and it’s going to backfire

Yes three out of 5 were tired of them. The only applause was anti Meghan and Harry. The tide is turning finally. Good

Probably the only time I’ve ever agreed with the View

Never thought I’d see the day I agree with the view on something
