On Sunday, Oprah revisited a group of Michigan voters she talked politics with on the CBS program last fall.
Trump was apparently tuned in to the discussion — obvi settling in to cheer on Omarosa in Celebrity Big Brother — and thought O’s questions were “biased,” “slanted,” and just plain “incorrect.” Shocker!
POTUS was so charged by the abominable interview, he basically dared Oprah to run for president so she could be exposed by the mighty Cheeto himself. He tweeted:
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!

Um… who and what did he expose, exactly? Hillary Clinton‘s anti-climactic emails? The existence of Tiffany Trump? We’re not sure.
While Oprah has been touted as a potential 2020 candidate following her show stopping speech at the Golden Globes last month, the actress has made it quite clear she does not intend to run.
That’s one thing Twitter users tried remind him — along with everything he’s been exposed as in his first year as president!
See some responses (below):
In victory you have been exposed as sexual assaulting, cheating, and lying racist. Anyone who runs against you will have to work hard to be as despicable as you. #TrumpLovesRussiaMoreThanAmerica

Trump calling Oprah ‘insecure’ confirmsthat Freud’s theory of psychological projection was right. What the ego can’t accept is split off and projected onto another. Trump is the greatest walking Freudian case study since Oedipus and Oedipus wasn’t even real.

So, according to you, her interview went exactly like all of yours go. Holy crap you are completely oblivious to your own hypocrisy! What world are you living in anyway?!

There’s no way trump watched what I watched. It was a very honest, civil discussion between people of both parties well moderated byOprah

OF COURSE Donny is still hoping to face off against another celebrity in the next election — it’s the only way he’ll look even slightly political.
Sry, POTUS, you’re getting a no nonsense senator like Kamala Harris as a 2020 opponent. Better start preparing!
