Oprah Responds to Presidential Rumors & Trump’s Vindictive “Hate Tweet”
In an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Thursday night, Winfrey shot down any possibility of running for presidency by reiterating to Kimmel, “I am definitely not running,” after turning to look straight into the camera.
Additionally in the video above, Winfrey went on to speak about her relationship with Donald Trump, particularly her feelings on his insulting tweet about her, in which the President criticized her lauded 60 Minutes segment as being “biased and slanted.” Check out the original tweet below.
Just watched a very insecure Oprah Winfrey, who at one point I knew very well, interview a panel of people on 60 Minutes. The questions were biased and slanted, the facts incorrect. Hope Oprah runs so she can be exposed and defeated just like all of the others!
