For readers who have been convinced by her adoring media that Oprah Winfrey would somehow be a viable presidential candidate, we have this – via this excerpt from Gregg Re’s article for foxnews.com:
In a fiery Instagram post Wednesday, Seal republished a pair of photos of Winfrey with disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, including one in which she appears to be kissing the producer’s cheek. Overlayed on the photos, in all-caps, is the text: “When you have been part of the problem for decades, but suddenly they all think you are the solution.”
Seal added a sarcastic comment to the right of the photographs that suggested Winfrey knew Weinstein was mistreating women.
“Oh I forgot, that’s right…..you’d heard the rumours but you had no idea he was actually serially assaulting young stary-eyed actresses who in turn had no idea what they were getting into. My bad,” Seal wrote.
Still sure about that presidential run?
I doubt it.
And wait until Republicans start scouring the decades of comments/positions Ms. Winfrey has taken on her TV shows. Do you really think they won’t come up with material – like a warehouse full of it?
My assumption is that there will be no Oprah Winfrey presidential run – at least in part because Ms. Winfrey is smart enough to understand what will happen to her reputation if there is one.
Better to have her many fans talk lovingly about the “what if” of a non-existent Winfrey presidency, than about the “holy #$@^%, did you see that” about the daily disclosures that would be sure to take place if she ran.
