Talk show hostess Oprah Winfrey admitted that she smoked crack cocaine when she was in her 20s. Let's start interviewing her drug pushers and have doctors examine her mental state to see if she has any mental deficiency from her drug addictions. Oprah as Commander In Chief? :hair: Oprah ordering the bombing of ISIS? :hair: She does not have the intestinal fortitude for the job. Brain dead women and liberals would vote for her, not middle America :!:

Favorite Movies: There are many to tell, but I prefer something that has a great storyline with loads of escapism and fantastic performance with over-the-top elements which would be pleasing. Action is the main genre I follow, and the spy genre would second that.

But people laughed when Trump first ran for President. I don't rule anything out any more.

Trump at least knew how to run a very large corporate business.

What does Oprah know other than being a SJW talk show host?

The joke is not that she could run, nor win, but that she could actually govern, and order people killed in wars, and grow the economy, and pass laws that really matter, not just social propaganda issues :!: Under Trump, in ONLY 11 months, the black and hispanic unemployment rates are the lowest in the history of the country :!: How will Oprah attack that FACT, when Oh-bama did nothing in this regard? GDP over 3% :!: Manufacturing jobs greatly increased :!: 2.1 million jobs created in 11 months :!: ISIS reduced by 98% in land area in Iraq and Syria :!: Trump knew how to campaign and she does not have the drive to do it and give up her cushy and pampered life. Once they start delving into her crack use days and younger life, let's see how she would still be perceived? The liberals do not investigate their own. Trump won 30 states :!: Prozac pacifist liberals cannot handle that :!: Too bad :!:

Well, she ran her own TV network, which was as successful as most of Trump's businesses (ie it went bankrupt). But like Trump, she is a brand. A Trump-Winfrey election would be the ultimate reduction of politics to showbusiness. It would expose the whole rotten facade.

I LOVE Oprah. She is smart, articulate, caring, compassionate etc. That is not even vaguely sufficient to be POTUS. No more of that. Build experience as governor or similar first, then we'll talk..................
@aliasvaughn

Just stop right now. I haven't dismissed ANYONE: I have said Oprah is smart, caring, successful in business, compassionate and all that. That does NOT give her ANY qualification to be President. End of. :clap:

She will kill her brand by running. She is beloved by a nation as more or less apolitical idol. Soon as she attaches real partisan politics and policies to her name her brand is finished.
Trump didn’t have that problem.
Oprah might win a general election popularity contest but I’m not sure she’d make it past the sharks in the democrat primary. If its not rigged for Oprah she have to learn to put somebody down hard enough they’ll stay down, in other words she’ll have to become more like trump, which kill the allure of the nice woman most of America loves.

This has been the Democratic narrative for a while: that once the old white racists have died off, a younger, more diverse electorate will create a permanent Democratic majority while the RepubliKKKan party goes the way of the Whigs. Problem is, they've been saying it for 50 years now....

Right you are, Kris. We've been hearing the same balderdash from the left for over 50 years now.

22%--Yes
71%--No
7%--I’m not sure

Other problem is the democrats are/were the party of the KKK only in my lifetime have the sought to be diverse even at that they a were not all the different, Clinton , obama , Hillary all ran as anti gay and a bunch of other things in their platform they wouldnt dare bring up in 2020.

It pisses me off the party of slavery and the kkk from 1865 until maybe 1975 suddenly gets religion and transfer their sins on to the Republican Party, who have enough of their sins own like genocide and the rise of corporate culture, but on almost every civil liberty cause were the leaders while democrats sheriffs and judges help keep the white powerful.


IMHO the reason the democrat plan of waiting for a more diverse younger generation to lift their fortunes is wrong for the same reason more women voted for trump over Hillary, the democrats assumed this demographic would feel a duty to support the first female candidate especial against a sexist ogre like Trump. Didn’t happen for the same reason this wave of new voters will never appear like both parties want it to, people are not all the same and don’t vote blindly although I get why the partys think they do. People vote for themselves and what they hope will make their life better, not according to Party ideology. The one issue the might drive somebody to vote could be so counterintuitive to who they are and where they are in a demographic.
Humanity at is core is a chaos of individuals that sometimes function as a society.

Far as Oprah she is beloved now, the moment she identifies what she thinks and tell the people who love her unconditionally what they should believe her brand is done and she struggling in the 30-50% approval range on her politics (the % all presidents live in) while being personally likable.
Oprah has so much secret in her background and life she will not want to become public, in a primary she’ll have to get d**n tough and a lot of damning scandals will be out there. Whoever she thinks she is now will be damaged beyond repair.

I Remember when pop up video was a thing, VH1 would play a music video with a pop up bubble of some strange unknown facts, it was so big at the time Oprah invited the team that did it to her show. Cute gimmick, thing was in a day or two they had the research her show they had facts poping up in the screen that you could see really pissed Oprah off, she would demand to know who on the staff told them this. The guys doing the pop ups were shocked she got so mad because she had been so friendly and played it so cool before.
If Oprah reacted that badly to a friendly bit of research the first Hillary Clinton pac ad will put her in a hulk type rage.

IMHO the only way Oprah can run for President is if she is ready to burry the image she had for 40 years, she’s had her time at the top so maybe she is. I don’t expect the new Oprah slinging political mud to win even half of the democrat party in a primary.

I thought it was after 1964, when LBJ signed the Civil Rights Act, Nixon came up with his Southern strategy, and all the Dixiecrats defected to the Republican Party.

you could be right, I’ve got no experience to base it on just what’s in text books which are vague. just about every civil right movement there were republican supporters before it became popularized which is somehow forgotten today, like Nixon getting much of the blame for JFK & LBJ’s war in Vietnam.
The videos of southern Sheriffs and governors turning troops loose on protesters those are all good democrats true to the party, bill Clinton’s mentor was a high ranking KKK member, until recently many honored (aged ) democrat senators were big deals in the KKK. Thankfully Father Time aged those assholes out of existence.

I dunno guess I’m bothered by the current democrat party throwing down the race card at elections every two years, how about they keep their hands clean for closer to a century before trying to play that card. Almost for got about a Joe Biden telling black people the party that fought against slavery wanted to “put you back in chains”
I know it’s hyperbole but the hypocritical nature of it bugs me.

I’m not a big fan of the republicans either, get me started on it and I’ll go on and on about their wars of genocide, they don’t get a pass on that from me either.

Big O, just look at the 2 racists who are #1 and #2 running the DNC now, Perez and Ellison :!: Democrats don't get it. By allowing these 2 hate mongers to run the show will get them more exiles than newbies. Perez was not only the choice of the Clinton wing of the party, but he has many of he same issues as Hillary Clinton, including email, ethics, telling the truth, and a belief that only Caucasians can commit race crimes.

As for a potential first female president in Oprah Winfrey, Spielberg noted, “It sure sounded like 2020 to me.” But as to whether he’d support his longtime star Tom Hanks as a vice presidential running mate for Winfrey, Spielberg replied, “If I’m gonna commit anything for Tom Hanks to be in in the future, it’s going to be another five of my movies.” Hanks gave his take on the vice presidency at the event to ET, saying, “I will only be a VP unless I’m guaranteed at least two rides on the presidential helicopter a month. If I don’t get that, I will not serve. I want to ride shotgun on Marine One twice a month.”

Tom Hanks is a good example of how getting political can hurt your image. He was much more beloved before he opened his mouth on politics, it has hurt his bo draw some but he is big enough to withstand it. From the comments it sounds like Spielberg and hanks know his acting career would be over win or lose.
