Following President Trump’s stunning election victory, people reacted in different ways. For Trump supporters, it was validation that the punditry was wrong, that polls were not accurately measuring his support. Of course, liberals have been beside themselves, literally rioting in the streets and cooking up delusional plans to take the victory away from him.
However, one big celebrity reacted to Trump’s win in a different way. Oprah Winfrey, one of the most-well known TV personalities in the world, realized that lack of political experience doesn’t mean you can’t be president. The realization caused her to consider whether a run for president might be right for her.
From the Daily Mail:
The improbable political rise of Donald Trump has led Oprah Winfrey to think about whether or not she could become the second TV entertainer to work in the Oval Office.
Oprah told Bloomberg interviewer David Rubenstein that before Trump won the November election, she thought she was unqualified to be president.
But not anymore.
‘I actually never thought that that was – I never considered the question, even a possibility,’ she said.
But when reality-show icon Trump beat longtime politician Hillary Clinton, she said, ‘I just thought, “Oh! Oh!”‘
I thought, “Oh, gee, I don’t have experience. I don’t know enough. I don’t.”
‘And now I’m thinking, “Oh! Oh!”‘
Oprah would be the first woman president if she were to leverage her near-universal name ID and nationwide support to match Trump’s political lightning moment.
