Today in ‘There’s Always a Tweet’: Trump on Oprah 2020

By

Oprah Winfrey became the first black woman to ever win the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award during Sunday night’s Golden Globes. Her powerful acceptance speech was more like a sermon, or a stump speech, depending on who you asked. Following the ceremony, Twitter lit up with cries — both genuine and in jest — of “Oprah 2020.” Oprah told Bloomberg she has no intention of running. Her partner, Stedman Graham, contradicted this by telling the Los Angeles Times, “It’s up to the people. She would absolutely do it.” And so the Oprah 2020 tweets continued to pile up. Which meant, naturally people started combing through Donald Trump’s old tweets to find out if 45 ever had anything prescient to say about Ms. Winfrey. He did. Back in 2012, Trump tweeted that Oprah “knows how to win.” It was in regards to starting her own television network, but still. Winning is winning and you have to know how to win to become president.

There’s always a tweet, folks.
