After Oprah Winfrey’s powerful speech at the Golden Globes last Sunday, a part of the mainstream public has been entertaining the idea of the TV mogul running for president in the US next election.
*WATCH TRUMP’S RESPONSE IN THE PLAYER ABOVE!*
This is one of those moments where you just can’t help throwing your hands up in the air and surrender in disbelief. Did we take the blue pill or the red one?
It feels as if the American public is so desperate for a saviour, Oprah Winfrey’s poignant intervention at the Golden Globes was enough to earn her the label as “presidential candidate”. Like, if the guy from “The Apprentice” won, why can’t she right?
Winfrey’s stocks are going through the roof right now, with her net worth even surpassing that of Trump’s.
Adding another layer of absurdist comedy to all of this – I swear, this is real news – back in 1999 Trump said to Larry King that Oprah Winfrey would actually be his “first choice” for vice-president if he’d ever decided to run for office.
God help us all.
