Dems pin their 2020 hopes and dreams on Oprah

Dems pin their 2020 hopes and dreams on Oprah

Desperately seeking someone with star power to run against Trump.

During Sunday’s Golden Globe awards, Oprah received the Cecil B. DeMille Award. Her acceptance speech has Democrats hopeful they too can have a celebrity gazillionaire candidate of their own this next presidential election cycle.

Oprah’s speech:

Winfrey gave an impassioned speech about the symbolic end of the #MeToo movement, an outcropping of the end to the protection of Hollywood serial sexual predator, Harvey Weinstein.

The money lines:

…”What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool that we all have, and I’m especially proud of all the women who have felt strong enough and empowered enough to speak up and share their stories.”

…”I want all the girls watching here and now to know that a new day is on the horizon! And 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.”

Salivating over Winfrey’s speech, the LA Times suggested the talk show star run for president:

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.

Alan F. Horn, chairman of the Walt Disney Studios, was equally impressed.

“She knows how to deliver it too,” Horn remarked. “She’s really emotional.”

The ability to give an emotionally evoking speech and tell a good story and a healthy dose of star power is all it takes to get liberals excited about a presidential run these days:

Russia!

Irony is totally lost on these guys.

And then of course there’s this

And if she ran, she’d get 90%+ of the black vote simply because, like the One, she’s black. But that kind of bigotry is okay because it’s Democrat bigotry.

Yeah, just what America needs for president, a rich hyphenated American minority woman who considers herself to be a spiritual leader. Shades of a Biblical Jezebel are knocking at our door.

Not my President.

She’s got Hollywood’s support. Too bad for her that Hollywood doesn’t call the shots for this country anymore.

There’s a rather significant difference between being President of the United States and being Queen of the Left. Being a black female celebrity pretty much locks down the queenship, but it’s a queenship without scrutiny or responsibility. Speechifying to a roomful of self-congratulating practitioners of make-believe in LA isn’t the same as convincing corn farmers in Iowa to vote for you.

Actually … if Candidate Oprah gives a free car! to everybody who attends a rally … she’ll probably put on a much better showing than Hillary.

The Tweet from Renee Baio is absolutely brilliant.

What a bunch of phonies led by the phoniest one of all… Meryl Streep in her black dress… what a fraud.

How long has Oprah been on TV? 30 years? That’s a lot of hours of video footage to mine for incendiary and stupid comments.

These people are mentally ill.

I listened to the speech, and all I have to say is: She’s full of it.
I would have to type a long article to explain myself, and I don’t want to bore you with it, but take this example:

Her “some little girl is watching now” thing is full of it. She’s a billionaire, with her own TV network, her own magazine, and has been honored and recognized everywhere. She has been named as the most influential woman in the world in numerous occasions.
For her to now play the race card, and try to present herself as a “Rosa Parks vs. Injustice” character is a slimy move, a snake charmer trick.

    But utterly unsurprising.

      FACT: Oprah has been the feature model on every last cover of O magazine.

    Could you imagine what all her State of the Union speeches would be like. But lets keep all that solely in the realm of imagination. In the same place where we imagine what America would be like if Hillary actually did follow the One in office. Shudders!

    ““some little girl is watching now” I guess she thought that would go over better than saying that some little girl is being sexted by the Dem’s next Anthony Wiener now.

    … and (formerly) a personal friend of Harvey Weinstein

    She’s just reminding us she’s black, in case we forgot.

If you run for President you have to actually embrace policy positions and so far here only one of “the country is racist” is not just overdone but working the opposite direction on the voters she would need.

Oprah will still be hawking Weight Watchers in 2021…

This will never happen. If Oprah sticks her neck out, her head will be chopped off (metaphorically speaking). This is the left’s version of the Kid Rock candidacy.

By pinning their hopes on an Oprah run in 2020 they are tacitly admitting that they won’t be able to remove Trump before then.

Bernie, Oprah the Fake Indian and Hilary.

The entertainment potential is astounding!

Looking forward to the Marc Cuban / Mark Zuckerberg / Oprah cage match.

Do we really need another “You are all racist” president? I personally am tired of my “Privilege” and taking advantage of all the blacks in my life. That is exactly why Trump is our president instead of the woman that called all of us deplorables!

Two words: Frank Perdue.

More words: Richard Scherrer, “Good Morning Baltimore.”

The picture of her kissing perv Weinstein is priceless.

By 2020 are we going to get fat Oprah or skinny Oprah. It may be a 2 for 1 campaign 😉

How many times did we hear from the left about how unqualified Trump was? And Oprah is??? Really?

If anybody has the dirt on Oprah pimping girls to Weinstein it would be fellow perv-pack member Bill Clinton. Oprah gets the nomination over Hillary’s dead body or not at all. Haha.

So where does NBC go now that they have already endorsed for 2020 ?

Our very own Evita!

Only 2 words for Hollywood: “End it!”

“…However, if this is indeed the high visibility launching point for Oprah 2020; associating herself with the aftermath of Pervnado seems like very poor personal branding: “Actress: Weinstein used Oprah and Naomi[Campbell] to seduce me,” the New York Post reported in late November 28, 2017. And Weinstein and Oprah were quite chummy, as this photo of the two attending the 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards back in January 16 of 2014 attests. It quickly made the rounds on Twitter last night. Oprah co-starred in the 2013 film The Butler, produced by Bob and Harvey Weinstein, whose company distributed the movie.

“An illegal alien Under Every Seat” Says Oprah Democrats

This is not unexpected, actually. The Oprah for President movement isn’t new. When she declared Obama “the One,” however, she lost support (and much of her audience). This was about the time she tried to rebuild via OWN.

She flew off to Copenhagen with the Obamas to pitch Chicago for the Olympics. Oops, Obama was a disaster there and pissed off everyone he met. Oprah got fed up, was embarrassed, and tried to distance herself from the Obamas. Too little, too late.

The Oprah brand took a HUGE hit when she went all in for Obama, and I can’t see her being stupid enough to risk her entire legacy on a (doomed) bid for the White House.

If she does, awesome! Trump wins by a landslide.

hell, Hell, HELL no, OTOH … maybe she’ll give us all a new car or bedroom set …

These image, and meme, circulating on Facebook ought to put an end to Oprah’s, and the Mainstream Medias, hopes:
