Oprah Talks Trump, Mean Tweets And ‘A Wrinkle In Time’

The divine Miss O was in the house Friday night for an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

Oprah wore a white blouse, grey fringed sweater and grey pants for the occasion. Her hair was pulled back into a high and long ponytail. She had on large, dark eyeglasses. Thunderous applause greeted the star as she sat down to chat with host Jimmy Kimmel, according to a report by USA Today.

The subject of running for president came up, but Oprah laughed it off and blamed her longtime partner for opening his mouth. Check it out here on YouTube.

President Trump recently tweeted that Oprah Winfrey was a very insecure person after she went on “60 Minutes” to discuss the Trump presidency with a panel of American citizens.

Oprah told Kimmel that she did not respond to Trump’s caustic tweets and said that one should never respond to negativity head-on.

The main reason for Oprah’s late-night TV visit to Kimmel was to discuss Ava DuVernay’s upcoming adaptation of “A Wrinkle In Time.” Miss O plays the movie role of Mrs. Which; she helps the protagonist of the story, Meg, to realize that her differences are unique and make her a hero.

Oprah underwent a major transformation to achieve the character of Mrs. Which. She’s in the makeup chair for almost four hours, and her eyebrows are made of colored stones, and she has long platinum curly locks.

“A Wrinkle in Time” hits theaters on March 9th.

Oprah For President In 2020?

So unless someone was living under a rock or really tuned out of the social media world we all live in, the latest thing to talk about in celebrity news is the speech that Oprah made at the Golden Globes while accepting the 2018 Cecil B. DeMille Award. In her impassioned speech, Oprah called out all of the abusers and stated to young women that there is “a new day on the horizon”. After her emotional speech, many speculate that Oprah may be the answer for a Presidential candidate in 2020. But my question is why?

Because she is eloquent? She should be, Oprah has had many hours of practice, after all, she made her living talking, questioning, and giving impassioned speeches. Or is it because she a champion for women? That is true, but in an Instagram posting the singer, Seal posted pictures that were examples of Oprah’s long standing casual friendship with Harvey Weinstein stating that Oprah knew what kind person Weinstein was. Unfortunately, I and many other people would find this plausible, as Oprah is the type of person who would enter into a movement and endorse that movement for the good publicity.

I am not an Oprah hater, but a person who realizes that people are human. We all have backed the wrong person at one time, but I believe that we do not need another celebrity running for a political office, we need a leader who’s biggest interest is the people they represent. Us.

Seal Criticized Oprah’s Golden Globes Speech

The musician Seal has criticized Oprah Winfrey for her much-lauded speech at Th, arguing that her comments about discrimination and abuse in Hollywood are hypocritical.

On his Instagram account, Seal posted pictures of Oprah hanging out with Harvey Weinstein, the producer whose alleged crimes brought on the ongoing #MeToo and Time’s Up movements. In one she seems to be kissing him on the cheek.

Over the pictures, Seal wrote “When you have been part of the problem for decades… but suddenly they all think you are the solution.” Under the pictures he added the comment “Oh I forgot, that’s right….. you’d heard the rumours but you had no idea he was actually serially assaulting young stary-eyed [sic] actresses who in turn had no idea what they were getting into. My bad.” He added the tag #SanctimoniousHollywood.

Chrissy Teigen was one of the celebrities who came to Oprah’s defense, saying that everyone has heard rumors about everyone, apparently implying that it would have been irresponsible for Oprah (or others) to act on mere speculation.

Seal’s comments come after much praise for Oprah’s speech, which she made while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award. (She is the first black women to receive this honor.) she called for an end of bigotry and a furtherance of women’s rights, and won praise from everyone to Hollywood insiders to the president’s daughter, Ivanka Trump. Many are even calling for her to run for president in the next election, which is in 2020.

Oprah Winfrey Fights Criticism For Her Twitter Post On Donald Trump

World famous talk show host Oprah Winfrey is attempting to address the numerous criticisms following her Twitter post of President Obama meeting with President-elect Donald Trump. Underneath a picture of Trump and Obama meeting in Washington D.C., Winfrey tweeted “Everybody take a deep breath! #HopeLives!”

 

Winfrey sent out this tweet on November 10th at 3:10PM. Almost immediately after she posted this tweet, Winfrey faced extreme criticism from her followers on Twitter. People accused Winfrey of “normalizing” President-elect Donald Trump.

 

Critics of Trump told Winfrey she was “too intelligent to believe that.” Some even threatened Winfrey, writing tweets like “DON’T YOU DARE OPRAH,” and “please do not normalize this man. Minority children are already being targeted.”

 

Winfrey addressed this issue with filmmaker Ava DuVernay after the first screening of a documentary called “13th.” When the results from the election came in on November 8th, Winfrey said she literally couldn’t breath deeply after hearing that Trump won. It wasn’t until she saw both Obama and Trump in the same room acting civil towards each other that she was able to take a deep breath again.

 

Although she did not take back her statement, Winfrey wished she could have rephrased it. Winfrey said, “you can never talk to everybody” on social media. She went on to say that she should have written, “I just took a deep breath #CivilityLives.”

 

Winfrey went on to say she was surprised just how civil the Trump transition has been thus far. However, she understands just how tense this election cycle was, and her tweet was only a representation of her own perspective at the time.
