Should Oprah run for president? | The Tylt
In an interview with fellow billionaire David Rubenstein, Oprah Winfrey seemed to indicate she would be open to running for president, especially now that Trump has proven you don't need prior government experience to get the job. But skeptics argue that, if nothing else, our 45th president has proven how much television does NOT prepare you to be the leader of the free world. Is America #ReadyForOprah? Should she run?
Should Oprah run for president?
Earth to Oprah: haven't the last six weeks been an epic lesson in the fact that the president actually does need government experience?? Don't do this!
Michael Moore is all about Oprah running. He thinks Democrats need to take a page from the Republican playbook and field candidates who are already popular in media and entertainment, a la Ronald Reagan, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Sonny Bono.
To have our first woman president be a Black woman? To have the first Black woman billionaire become the leader of the free world?? Many people are saying "Yes she could" and "Yes she should!"
Gayle says it will never happen.
People are THRILLED about the possibility of President Winfrey.
Dear Oprah: we love you, but the lesson of the weeks since January 20 is NOT "experience doesn't matter." Just ask NATO, the State Department and the CIA.
