Not even on President’s Day weekend (is that even a real holiday?) can Trump keep his little hole of a mouth shut. Instead the he decided to attack this nation’s greatest treasure, calling her “insecure” and “slanted.”
He’s referring to a 60 Minutes segment hosted by Oprah with 14 voters from Grand Rapids, Michigan. They first appeared on the show with O in fall 2017. In Sunday’s episode the mix of pro- and anti-Trump voters reunited to see where they stand politically six months later.
Since Oprah’s historic Golden Globes speech, people have been begging and praying that Ms. Winfrey make a bid for the Oval Office. "Are you kidding me? I was just trying to give a good speech," she told Ann Silvio on 60 Minutes Overtime, according to CNN. "I was looking for a way to express what was going on in this moment in terms of gender and class and race." She told Silvio the presidency is “not in my DNA,” an answer she also gave to InStyle last month.
But Trump still wants Oprah to run, so that she can supposedly lose. I don’t think so Donald—even your ex-BFF Steve Bannon thinks Oprah would come out on top. Trump and Oprah have a history together, with Trump even saying in a 1999 interview that he would make Oprah his running mate if he ever made a bid for president.
That’s all in the past now, and people aren’t going to let Trump get away with slandering Oprah’s name like that. Not today sir, not ever.
