Oprah Winfrey’s speech at the Golden Globes last month made everyone cream their jeans to the point where they chose her like a Pokemon to take on the Charmander of Washington D.C. Donald “How’s My Hair” Trump. And though she’s been toying with us about running, doesn’t it feel weird knowing that if she does indeed run, the battle for the office of POTUS would be between a former talk show host and a former game show host? Can I put on my good church wig and reclaim my time like Aunt Maxine now? Because if that’s our future then the shit-talking began last night during a segment on 60 Minutes.
Oprah re-visited a group of fourteen people she interviewed a few months ago from Grand Rapids, MI. Some are Trump supporters and the rest are not. I didn’t see the initial interview but I’m sure it was a verbal slap-boxing extravaganza where people either wanted to kick Trump right in his ass or place their lips on his ass and kiss it like the Blarney Stone. Incidentally, since that time the diverse group of people kept in touch (more than likely for a check) and Oprah decided to go back and do a follow-up, because anything Trump related is ratings gold.
During this second round of interviews, they all used the normal catchphrases attached to this presidency like bullying, ISIS, economy and #metoo. There’s even a moment where one Trump supporter claimed she feels the safest she ever has because she can now proudly say, “Merry Christmas!”, to everyone like she’s Tiny Tim. Whatever lady. Anyway, the interviews were everything you would expect from a bipartisan round-table discussion, and of course ol’ Twitter Fingers Trump fixed his dollar store carpet-sample hair, cracked his dusty knuckles and tweeted after he saw the segment.
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!

OK. First, I almost pissed my pants from laughing so hard at Trump calling anybody insecure. Pot, meet kettle. Second, isn’t 11:30 past his bedtime? Melania Trump better get on her job and start spiking his nightcaps with NyQuil so he can take his ass to bed at a decent hour. And third, Oprah isn’t here for those tweets! She has an army that makes the MAGAs and the Beyhive look like a band of kindergartners with broken slingshots on the playground. Translation: You better run, bitch!
