Is this Oprah trying to insult or compliment Trump? Either way, if Oprah becomes President we will be a nation of p*ssies whom talk about their feelings and sit on the couch doing nothing. Just Saying.
The improbable political rise of Donald Trump has led Oprah Winfrey to think about whether or not she could become the second TV entertainer to work in the Oval Office.
Oprah told Bloomberg interviewer David Rubenstein that before Trump won the November election, she thought she was unqualified to be president.
But not anymore.
‘I actually never thought that that was – I never considered the question, even a possibility,’ she said.
But when reality-show icon Trump beat longtime politician Hillary Clinton, she said, ‘I just thought, “Oh! Oh!”‘
‘I thought, “Oh, gee, I don’t have experience. I don’t know enough. I don’t.”
‘And now I’m thinking, “Oh! Oh!”‘
Oprah would be the first woman president if she were to leverage her near-universal name ID and nationwide support to match Trump’s political lightning moment.
She told Rubenstein, a famed philanthropist who interviews business leaders on his show, that she built her career on one unlikely triumph after another.
When she was hired to host ‘A. M. Chicago’ in 1984, she said, most of her friends predicted she would fail because her show competed with legendary interviewer Phil Donahue.
‘It didn’t matter to me, because I did not think that he was beatable,’ she recalled.
But ultimately, ‘I beat him. I did. I wasn’t trying to.’
