Maxine Waters Fires Back at Trump on Oprah's Behalf

Maxine Waters Fires Back at Trump on Oprah's Behalf

However, President Trump went after Winfrey on Twitter over the weekend over alleged "bias" during a 60 Minutes segment with a table of MI voters and baited her to run in 2020 so that she can "be exposed and defeated just like all of the others!"

In President Trump's call-out Tweet directed at Winfrey, he called her a very "insecure" person, and accused her of skewing her line of questioning toward the 14 people from Grand Rapids.

This comes after Oprah has repeatedly stated that she has no interest in running for president and has handled the tribulations of the Trump presidency with a quiet dignity.


The discussion looked at whether the the pro-Trump panelists still backed the President, his alleged "shithole countries" comments, the perception of the U.S. under his presidency and accusations of inappropriate sexual behaviour.

Winfrey first appeared on the CBS news program last autumn to talk politics with a group of MI voters. In a tirade of Tweets, the 71-year-old American president targeted multiple groups, such as CNN, the FBI, California Representative Adam Schiff, Democrats, and of course, Winfrey herself. He also hoped that she would run for the presidency in 2020 so that "she can be exposed and defeated just like all of the others!" Oprah would be a lot of fun. No, I like Oprah. But she put the rumor to bed. "I am actually humbled by the fact that people think that I could be a leader of the free world, but it's just not in my spirit", she said.
