Since the award ceremony when all of Hollywood began calling for a “President Oprah Winfrey,” she has remained in the back of many minds, a potential challenger for the 2020 presidency. She hinted that perhaps she would run, but has more recently suggested she is not interested (in political terms this is known as “waiting to hear what my polling agents say”).
But she has no remained politically silent. IN fact, she hosted a “roundtable discussion” of voters in Michigan for 60 Minutes. Of the 14 guests, 7 voted for Trump and 7 didn't. Oprah took the time to talk down to, ridicule, condescend each of the Trump voters and essentially just spent the entire time attacking Trump.
And the president loved it!
“Just watched a very insecure Oprah Winfrey, who at one point I knew very well, interview a panel of people on 60 Minutes. The questions were biased and slanted, the facts incorrect. Hope Oprah runs so she can be exposed and defeated just like all of the others!”
Oprah swung..and missed. Who was she pitching her ideas to? All those that voted for Trump knew it would be biased, and all those that didn't couldn't learn anything new from this.
What a waste of 60 minutes!
