Run, Oprah, run!




Because of her tear jerking speech at the Golden Globes last night, cries arose from the left calling for Oprah Winfrey to run for President in 2020:

Oprah Winfrey for president was something of a running theme throughout the Golden Globes on Sunday, beginning with Seth Meyers’ opening monologue. He jokingly forbade Winfrey from considering the presidency.

But the trend picked up steam as the night unfolded, particularly after Winfrey’s impassioned acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award.

It didn’t take long for social media, and celebs in particular, to rally Winfrey for the job, including inside the ceremony.

“It’s up to the people,” Winfrey’s longtime partner, Stedman Graham, told The Times. “She would absolutely do it.”

Gayle King, Winfrey’s best buddy, echoed Graham’s sentiments: “I thought that speech was incredible. I got goosebumps,” she also told The Times.

Eva Longoria and Keith Urban shared a table at the ceremony and gushed over Winfrey’s remarks.

“That speech!” Longoria said.

“It was more of an exultation,” Urban replied.

Jimmy Kimmel was “on board” with it.

NBC sent out of completely non-partisan tweet:

Nothing but respect for OUR future president.

Here is a segment from her speech:

‘I want all the girls watching here to know that a new day is on the horizon. When that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say ‘Me too’ again.’

Indeed. Despite her abused past, Oprah rose above it to mingle and get tight with the titans of Hollywood, including one Harvey Weinstein, with whom Oprah does not look at all uncomfortable:




This is juxtaposed nicely with some of the scenery posted in Hollywood to greet the celebrities:



They all knew. The loathsome Meryl Streep knew. Oprah knew. Jake Tapper called it the “one of the most open secrets in Hollywood.” It would be delicious to see Oprah have to squirm while fending off questions about why she knew about the rampant sexual harassment and did absolutely nothing until it was safe to do so.

That wouldn’t be the end of it, either. A British actress accused Oprah of pimping her out to Weinstein:

In a largely ignored report from Page Six, British actress Kadian Noble came forth with shocking accusations.
Noble claims that when she first met Weinstein at an event in London, she was overtly impressed because he was partying with model Naomi Campbell and had Oprah “swinging off his arm”. Noble recalled:

I thought, obviously, this man has something amazing in store for me…

Noble is the most recent in a long list of actresses and models who claim Harvey Weinstein either forced himself on them or coerced them into sex. After meeting Weinstein for the first time in London, Noble brought along her “show reel” to his hotel room when she met up with him again in Cannes in February 2014. During their second meeting, Noble alleges Weinstein used promises of career advancement to lure Noble to his hotel room, where he forced himself on her.

Oprah is also a trove of opposition research:

Oppo Claim: Winfrey killed a woman

When Winfrey swallowed new age philosophy hook, line, and sinker, so did many in her audience — occasionally with fatal results. In early 2007, she brought self-help guru Rhonda Byrne onto her show for back-to-back episodes to share her book and philosophy called The Secret.

Introducing the idea, Winfrey literally called it “the secret to creating the life you truly want.” In sum, Byrne taught that consciousness literally shapes reality. “You are the most powerful magnet in the universe,” the author explained to Winfrey’s audience, “so as you think a thought, you are also attracting like thoughts to you.”

Want a better job? Think positive thought. Want a better relationship? Think positive thoughts. Want a better body? You guessed it, think positive thoughts. Some took it to an unhealthy extreme though, like one woman named Kim Tinkham.

Diagnosed with breast cancer, Tinkham skipped chemotherapy and tried to save herself through the power of positive thinking after learning about the technique on “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” Horrified, Winfrey tried to talk the woman out of it on national television, telling her that the so-called secret “is not the answer to everything. It is not the answer to atrocities or every tragedy.”

But Tinkham didn’t listen. She died three years later. That didn’t hurt book sales. The Secret sold more than 1.3 million copies.

And she is responsible for Dr. Oz.

So please- run, Oprah, run!

@Bill… Deplorable Me:

Trump promoted the “fact” that Obama wasn’t born in the United States.

Not only that, we don’t know where he was born, who his father is, We do know that he became an Indonesian citizen and never gave it up or never became an American citizen again. We know he does not have a Social Security card that was issued to him. We know he only got a US passport after he became president and it was totally a diplomatic one. He never had to furnish proof of citizenship. We also know that he and Mooche have never had a child born to either of them. Other than that………

@kitt: I agree completely with you, Kitt. I read Greg’s statement as all medicare physicals include a specific testing for mental conditions. That’s what I disagree with. I do agree that if you specifically mention that you are concerned about mental condition, it will be tested for, but have never seen, nor heard of, a medicare physical specifically including mental testing as an all inclusive testing. I believe medicare doctors usually check what you report to them and/or ask about during your checkup. Preliminarily, Trumps doctor said Trump is in excellent health and I don’t believe he would say that if he had detected ‘mental’ problems
