Donald Trump Challenged Oprah Winfrey to Run for President on President's Day

People have finally stopped asking Oprah if she will run for president in 2020, so Donald Trump felt safe to challenge her as a future non-candidate.

In September of 2017, Oprah held a roundtable discussion with Michigan voters, some of whom supported Trump some of whom didn’t, and 60 Minutes aired what amounted to a Facebook argument in real time. Six months later, the show and Oprah invited the same voters back to see if their perspective had changed. Shocker! It hadn’t. But Trump must have watched a clip of it on Fox & Friends, or something:

An “insecure Oprah” is an oxymoron from a moron. Oprah has said again and again that she does not want to run for president, despite blowing all our wigs off with her Golden Globes speech. And that’s really the only reason Trump is throwing down this gauntlet, because if there’s someone who could destroy him anytime, anywhere, it’s Oprah Freaking Winfrey.

Think about it:


Joel McHale’s new show The Joel McHale Show With Joel McHale on Netflix is very reminiscent of The Soup, which means he’s been walking down memory lane a lot to promote it. In an interview with Variety, McHale basically blames the original show’s demise on the Kardashians, who aired their reality TV show on E! as well. Apparently, network execs had been getting calls from Kris Jenner asking The Soup to lay off The Family, which they sometimes obliged. Then it became a direct order:

The next administration, the president said to my face, “Don’t make fun of the Kardashians. We don’t want you to make fun of the Kardashians anymore.” So I was like, oh this show is doomed because that’s why the show worked, because we would make fun of ourselves. It’s like when Letterman made fun of GE in the ‘80s. You have to bite the hand that feeds you. The network really did not like when the Kardashians first came out and then we just said Kim Kardashian was only famous for having a big a– and a sex tape.

E! declined to comment on the veracity of this statement. So, it’s probably true.

I, a young person, am thankful.
