Prince Harry moved to the United States with his wife, Meghan Markle, amid many scandals in the Royal Family. They didn’t like it in England anymore, especially with how Meghan was allegedly treated, so they moved to Meghan’s country of origin, after spending some time in Canada. Now, after only briefly living in the United States, Harry thinks he’s enough of an expert to criticize it. Supreme Court Justice Alito put him in his place.
Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito took the opportunity, during a speech July 21 in Rome at a conference on religious liberty hosted by the University of Notre Dame Law School, to respond to statements that have been made by Prince Harry and some others about the majority opinion he wrote that overturned Roe v. Wade.
Alito said “What really wounded me, what really wounded me, was when the Duke of Sussex addressed the United Nations and seemed to compare the decision — whose name may not be spoken — with the Russian attack on Ukraine,” using a sarcastic tone.
This is what Alito was referring to:
Alito also made fun of UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, saying “I had the honor this term of writing I think the only Supreme Court decision in the history of that institution that has been lambasted by a whole string of foreign leaders who felt perfectly fine commenting on American law. One of these was former Prime Minister Boris Johnson, but he paid the price.”
Who knew a Supreme Court Justice could also be a comedian?! Justice Alito makes an excellent point about people that aren’t from the U.S. criticizing it. Especially someone like Prince Harry, who obviously likes it here better than back in England. Did Alito make some good points?
