The Alt-Left Democratic Party, whose Marxist/socialist pursuits remain out of touch with the vast majority of Americans, has settled on its next challenger to President Donald J. Trump, well in advance of the 2020 elections.
How does “President Oprah Winfrey” sound to you?
No, I’m not even kidding, though given the state of the world and its dangerous uncertainty moving forward, I wish I was.
The ‘movement’ got some serious boost on Sunday when Oprah showed up at the Golden Globes awards show and gave a “stirring speech” when accepting a GG for lifetime achievement.
After the speech, astute political minds — we call them “celebrities” — took the very same platform they love to hate when Trump is using it to urge the queen of daytime talk to run for the Oval Office. Yes, the Twitter hashtags #Oprah2020 and #OprahForPresident are now live (and semi-official).
During a speech in which she recounted an instance of white-on-black racism that could never happen anywhere in the country today (hint: Thanks to the progress we’ve made on civil rights), Oprah sounded like the candidate-in-waiting, seeking the next Democratic ordination who can “inspire” like Hillary Clinton never could, because, you know, she’s not just a woman, she’s a black woman.
So you can’t criticize her a) if you’re a man; b) if you’re white; c) if you’re a Trump supporter (because you’re a “racist/bigot/homophobe.”
And so on. Come on now, you know if she runs that’s exactly what’s coming. (Related: Naw, Oprah, Please Tell Me You Didn’t Recommend KFC.)
That’s what happened when Republicans and other opponents of Obama dared to criticize him. Mind you, the criticisms were not personal; people were criticizing his politics and his policies.
But somehow along the way that became racism. ‘How dare you criticize the first black president!’ came the cries of indignation from the Left.
If somehow Oprah — a billionaire TV host with zero political and geopolitical experience (sound familiar?) — were to beat The Donald, criticism of her and her policies would take on a rancor and tenor as yet meted out by the insane Left, which of course has been at the forefront of the most callous, insensitive, racially-tinged, unprecedented, angry, threatening criticism of Trump since the man descended Trump Tower in New York to declare his candidacy.
People laughed at Trump then and they may be chuckling at the notion of an Oprah (we don’t even use her last name, do we?) presidency. But we shouldn’t, and conservative pundit Ben Shapiro explains why.
First of all, she’s the most famous woman on the planet and, perhaps, ever. When we say she’s the “queen” of daytime talk and the media in general, that’s really not an exaggeration.
For another, she will be seen as a uniter, not a divider (well, by many people anyway — until she starts doing what Obama did and talks about ‘racial injustice’ continuing today as though no progress has been made whatsoever in race relations). She also has high personal positives (but of course, this is all before she’s even started running — and laying out policy — yet).
Her personal story — being born dirt-poor in Mississippi, was molested as a child, and is now worth $3 billion — is no doubt compelling.
She polls better than Trump (at least now). And she has cross-over appeal (very popular with white women).
Oh, and the pathetic “mainstream media” would fawn over her like you’ve never seen before, blasting anyone who dared question her motives, intent, claims or policies.
But she’s got zero experience (hey, even Trump bought off some politicians so there’s that); she’s very far Left (which no one in her corner wants to talk about), and her likely attempt to paint Trump as an immature bully won’t work because it didn’t work for Hillary Clinton.
Yes, Oprah Winfrey is considering a run for president. If you thought it couldn’t get any crazier than having Trump win (and I’m glad he did, for the record), just wait until this race heats up.
Then, of course, Oprah will have to explain this.

Oh, and this video, in which she says that “old white people just have to die” before there is any real racial harmony:
Good luck, Oprah!
