Good. We don’t want you, we don’t need you.
Could we somehow get her implicated in all of 0bama’s upcoming legal troubles? I mean, she used the power of her PULPIT to get that POS elected in the first place!
Maybe she’ll waddle for President.
So they are going to sit around and trade liberal bromides, and maybe even bash Trump a bit???
What’s with this turbulent times business?? Why is it turbulent?? Because of Trump???
Wise decision, Opry.
Maybe. Maybe not.
I betcha she certainly can be included in Harvey Weinstein's soap opera.
There are pictures...
It just occurred to me.....why isnt anyone screaming about the musical Hamilton culturally appropriating early White Americans? Why is it OK for the writer to require ONLY Minority actors to play White American Founding Fathers???
she’s just an attention whore. Her face was so far up obama’s ass I was amazed she could talk.
Those cars were paid for by the auto maker and the people who received them had to pay taxes if they kept the vehicles.
because Oprah is not the Oprah she plays on TV
Talk about blowing up the national debt!!
Oooo! I almost forgot about the Weinstein angle! That would be some fine anti-Oprah advertising for sure!
It’ll stick, too. Google it around some, when you find the one particular picture that tells a story you’ll know it...
She’s a pampered billionaire who, unlike Trump, would not have been willing to sacrifice her posh life for a 2 year campaign.
Exactly. And if she ran for President, a lot of her secrets would become public.
Oprah would not surrender her life style for any Titled job...she loves money, wigs, clothes, and her many mansions..even after a Mud Slide, to run for POTUS...
She also has a weight problem of lose and gain, all the time...and her live in lifestyle would not work for her...and she might be force to finally marry the dude..or maybe it is he would have to finally be forced to marry her...what ever...
SHE IS NOT PRESIDENTIAL MATERIAL...AT ALL...jmo and I'll stick with it...
The Dems want Biden.
But but but having a Second Lady and a First Man wouldve been historic!!
