Donald Trump capped a long weekend of hate-tweeting by taunting an “insecure” Oprah Winfrey over her latest appearance on “ 60 Minutes.”
And he practically dared her to run for president.
Winfrey first appeared on the CBS news program last autumn to talk politics with a group of Michigan voters. On Sunday,
she revisited the group to continue the discussion.
Trump was apparently watching ― and fuming. He stewed over what he called “biased” questions, tweeting:
Winfrey was mentioned as a
potential 2020 candidate last month after a show-stopping speech at the Golden Globe Awards. However, she previously said that she didn’t intend to run for president.
I don’t have the DNA for it,” Winfrey told InStyle last year. “That’s not for me.”
Winfrey appeared to reaffirm that sentiment last week.
“Because if God actually wanted me to run, wouldn’t God kind of tell me?” she said on “60 Minutes Overtime.” “
And I haven’t heard that.” Also on HuffPost "When people show you who they are, believe them." Maya Angelou It's one of the most important lessons Oprah ever learned from Maya Angelou. "If a person says to you, 'I'm selfish,' or, 'I'm mean,' or, 'I am unkind,'… believe them," Angelou advised in 1997. "They know themselves much better than you do." "When you see crazy coming, cross the street." Iyanla Vanzant "Most of us have a death urge. We see the guy coming, warning slapped right in the middle of his head. And we said, 'Oh, I'm going to fix him. I'm going to change it. I'm going to reshape it,'" Iyanla Vanzant said in 1998. "Love doesn't have to fix you, change you. When you see crazy coming, cross the street. Cross the street!" "If what you're doing is not working, you have to change it." Dr. Phil "I'm just a strong believe in life law number two: You create your own experience," said Dr. Phil in 2001. "I really believe that. And the point is, if what you're doing is not working, you have to change it. You have to change it. And everybody will say, 'Well, I don't want to be somebody I'm not. I don't want to stop being who I am.' Well, you know what? If who you are is not working, you'll find that you have a broad range of who you are." "Don't trust the fact that life will be logical and orderly." Caroline Myss "Forgiveness actually should be thought of as the most selfish act you could do for yourself -- and self-indulgent," Caroline Myss said in 1998. "And this is where the confusion comes in with it: You're actually not saying, 'You know, what you did is OK.' You're not saying that... What you're really saying is, 'I'm no longer going to trust the fact that life should be logical and orderly. I'm not going to trust it, because you know what? It doesn't work that way. And I'm no longer going to count on ordinary justice to work the way I would like it to work.'" "Power is the alignment of your personality with your soul." Gary Zukav This definition of power, Oprah told Gary Zukav in 2000, is one of her favorite definitions in the world. "You say when your personality comes to serve the energy of your soul -- meaning, you can combine yourself, your personality with what your soul's purpose is here on earth -- then that is authentic empowerment," she summarized.
