Meghan Markle is said to have been snubbed by Disney for being a "controversial figure," following reports her agent was finding her a Hollywood role with the film company. The Duchess of Sussex, 38, is believed to be trying to get herself back into acting as she and husband Prince Harry start their new life, after they stepped down from royal duties. Responding to speculation, an unnamed film executive has revealed there are "limited plans" for Meghan to secure a big role - after she allegedly told her agent to find her a superhero role with Marvel.

There is never a photograph of her that has not been perfectly posed, even when she has supposedly been ambushed. She craves the presence of cameras more than Norma Desmond. She was never an A-lister but thinks her connection to royalty should make everyone want to bow down to her and beg her to act in their productions. She stupidly turned her back on the royal family so she is much less interesting now.

At what point will it become too awkward to be associated with her? Once your “brand” is damaged it gets really hard to fix.

I'm surprised she's already done one voice-over for Disney. Disney says she knows she can't carry a movie as the star.

I am honestly surprised. After all, look at the (obnoxious, ignorant, race baiting, trouble maker) Colin Kaepernick. He is "controversial" to say the least. And what's happened to him? He has a huge contract with Nike, and Nike stopped producing the Betsy Ross flag shoe because Kaepernick decided that our Nation's first flag is racist. Also the NFL set up a personalized tryout just for him (which he totally blew, by being his usual bad sport and obnoxious self) and didn't some sports writer proclaim that Kaepernick was the most important athlete of the decade? I would have thought Disney would jump at the chance to benefit from (supposed) SJW Markle's worldwide fame (for being disloyal, disrespectful, unappreciative and anti-Trump).

A super-hero role at 38? Not what I call a deep thinker. For all her supposed educational accomplishments, she comes across as quite shallow.

When she was younger, and clearly got acting jobs based on her looks far more than her mediocre acting ability (not terrible, but definitely not "big star" level), I saw her in a Hallmark Channel movie. That was about the level of actress she was. Now she is older, not nearly as cute, and I seriously doubt her acting ability has improved, so a major starring role in a Marvel superhero movie is not likely in the works. She should probably go begging to the Hallmark Channel again. They do tend to use slightly older actresses, and they chug out about 10 of those campy romantic comedies a week, so they might give her another shot.

In other words, she is the Colin Kapernick of acting. She can't act has no talent and is not even that good looking. Maybe she can get a gig in the adult film industry. Maybe a warm-up girl for starters.

It's all about reputation and appearance. You don't speak poorly about the Queen and walk away looking like snow white. It does not work like that in the real world, Meghan. What she and Harry did to the Queen was cruel. Meghan continues to talk to her friends and paper about how the Royal family was mean to her. If I was Meghan, I would try my hand and something else other than acting. By the way, Disney is somewhat like Hallmark. As they see it, Meghan is damaged goods.

Her father worked in the film industry and got her a few gigs. She is 38 and never made it big even with her good looks. No one had ever heard of her until she met Harry which tells me she is not a very good actress. She is a manipulator and will do anything to become a real movie star even marry a Prince. Those A Listers that she considers her friends would not even know her name without him. She is not planning on taking care of Archie; she wants a full time nanny. Harry is finding out the hard way what he married and it "ain't" pretty.

If Harry ever has a moment of clarity, he would grab that little boy of his, flee back to Buckingham Palace and beg for mercy. And then have the Royal Pain (love that!) banned from reentering the country. So sad that the Queen, who I admire enormously, has to put up with this idiotic nonsense. Ramona (the Pest)

I wonder if Harry is getting a clue that he's been used to revive the acting career of a fading B-list actress. He'll probably suck it up for a while longer because he won't be able to admit to himself (and the world) that he was taken, but eventually things will fall apart.

I might watch her in an adult movie, providing I could download it for free. Otherwise I'm not too interested. Yes she's pretty, but that's not enough. There are lots of actresses out there who are not as pretty as her but still get regular work. It must be something else. Maybe lack of personality or lack of talent.

How ironic that Harry (she calls him “H”) was caught schmoozing Bob Iger, at that time CEO of Disney, at the premiere of The Lion King. Touting the availability of his wife for Disney films. Iger has since resigned. He apparently left no positive message re Mrs. H for his successor.

Barack Obama’s eight-year tenure was detrimental to the United States, but like most of his nonbelievers, I harbor no animosity for his person. Few critics that I know advocated that Obama be impeached, much less removed from office, before his reelection bid—even amid his worst scandals and dangerous policies. But we are now in a new age, whose protocols might have made it impossible for the Obama Administration to have finished two terms. Remember, his administration ran some 2,000 guns to Mexican cartels in some hare-brained scheme to monitor violence spilling into the United States. Under the new customs, he should have been impeached for instructing Attorney General Eric Holder to

Former Bill Clinton strategist Paul Begala thinks President Trump is going to swap running mates in 2020. The CNN political analyst made the prediction during a Monday panel event at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s annual conference. Begala, who was a chief strategist during Clinton’s 1992 campaign, said he thinks Pence will be replaced as vice president on Trump's ticket with Nikki Haley, his former U.N. ambassador. “This is not a prediction. It’s a certainty,” Begala said. “On Thursday, July 16 — that’s the date the Democrat gives her or his acceptance address — on that day, to interrupt that narrative, Donald Trump will call a press conference at Mar-a-Lago."
