My Weekend Oprah

Look, I don’t necessarily thing America should go elect another billionaire celebrity as its president anytime soon. One would hope the petulant orange C-Lister we have in there now would scare us away from ever again letting a famous person without a single iota of governing experience (and even less compassion or intellectual curiosity) be Leader of the Free World. But, all that said, if we were to allow another star near the White House, I can honestly think of no person more temperamentally and inspirationally perfect for the role than Oprah. She has the compassion and intelligence and hope part down pat. And her Golden Globe speech was 300 million times better than anything Donald Fucking Trump has ever said in his life. And that’s probably low-balling it. I listen to it again, days later, and still, goosebumps. So, yeah, Oprah 2020. Or someone with the compassion and intelligence of Oprah who is deeply qualified for the position 2020. Happy weekend, all.

p.s. May that speech also forever bury Dave Letterman’s “Oprah-Uma” joke. RIP.

Some of the best suggestions I have seen include:
* Oprah heavily supporting WOC candidates
* Oprah buying Fox
* Oprah running for lower office and working her way up (governor of Illinois? I'd support that!)

How about we actually elect someone with experience and the ability to be a stateman/woman?? So tired of people being elected on the cult of personality. It just shows how stupid and shallow Americans can be. I vote for a nerd president, with actual qualifications, who will buckle down and do the actual work required. Prima donnas need not apply.

I love her and all but...
No Trump, no oprah, no mark Cuban, no kid rock, no celebrities. Experienced politicians please.

We need to get behind Oprah. Oprah may not have political experience but that is not necessary anymore in America. She will rally the country behind her. She is a very unifying presence. She has my vote in 2018.
