Donald Trump Challenged Oprah To Run Against Him After Watching Her 60 Minutes Special About Him
Donald Trump decided to challenge Oprah Winfrey to a 2020 Presidential “duel” after he saw her segment about him on CBS’ 60 Minutes over the weekend. Does this man have even one mature bone in his body?
Donald Trump really has nothing else to do. You would think that being the 45th President of the United States would keep you busy enough from being caught up in what other people are doing in general, but the 71-year-old makes it his business to be all up in other people’s business. And the most recent person to be under his nose is the queen of daytime TV, Ms. Oprah Winfrey herself.
Last night, instead of Trump taking a break from social media considering the government’s recent indictments of Russian “meddlers” (who could possibly be his homies) in the 2016 Presidential election, he decided to watch CBS’ 60 Minutes.
Deadline reported that Oprah’s segment included an interview with 14 people from Grand Rapids, Michigan, half of whom voted for him. Oprah asked them several questions that touched on Trump’s mental stability and allegations of sexual harassment.
“Polls are showing that respect for the United States is eroding around the world. Do you care what the world thinks of the United States?” Winfrey asked at one point. “There have been some members of Congress, including Republicans, questioning his stability and fitness for office. What do you think of that, and do you believe he has the temperament to be president?” she also asked. “Do you think the president is held to a different standard when it comes to this issue of sexual harassment?” ran another question.
Apparently, he must have wanted Oprah to put more respek on his name, because after it aired, he had a hissy fit and took to Twitter to let everybody know that Oprah was “very insecure” and that if she ran for President in 2020, she would be “exposed and defeated just like all the others.”
Is this Gladiators? Who says things like that? First of all, he must not have gotten the memo that the queen unequivocally said that she would not run. And despite Trump calling Oprah “insecure,” the 64-year-old knows exactly who she is.
“I’ve always felt very secure and confident with myself in knowing what I could do and what I could not. And so, it’s not something that interests me,” Oprah told In Style Magazine. “I don’t have the DNA for it.”
Well, Trump is proving that the DNA for being President involves an incomparable level of petty, immaturity and lack of respect. So, I don’t blame Oprah for not getting in the political ring with such a loose cannon or anyone else for that matter.
