Oprah Ruffles Donald Trump’s Feathers with ’60 Minutes’ Special

Oprah Winfrey’s sit-down with Michigan voters Sunday, Feb. 18 did not sit well with President Donald Trump.

The former talk show host revisited 14 partisan voters after talking with them last fall. As seven of them voted for Donald Trump, Winfrey spoke with them again to get their opinion on his first year in office.

Winfrey asked the group about their feelings on Trump’s tax plans and if they believe he actually made the remark about “shithole countries.”

“I can see him using the language,” said one voter. “But you guys at times you need to look at the man you’re talkin’ about. This man looks at one lens, through one lens and all. It’s an economic lens. He did not look at this as people in those countries, in my opinion.”

And the President swiftly latched on to such questions.

“Just watched a very insecure Oprah Winfrey, who at one point I knew very well, interview a panel of people on ’60 Minutes,'” Trump tweeted Sunday night. “The questions were biased and slanted, the facts incorrect. Hope Oprah runs so she can be exposed and defeated just like all of the others!”

Winfrey has ruled out a 2020 presidential bid and has yet to comment on Trump’s tweet.

Meanwhile, many lashed out at where Trump’s priorities are.

“So still no reply to anything Eminem has said or Michael Rapport or anyone else that is not a person of color but ANYTIME a POC says or does anything that he can misconstrue as remotely against him he has always has a quick response,” one user said adding the hashtags #HeIsRacist #Period.

“Lol, he’s going after Oprah now???! 😂😂😂 I guess he really enjoys being cussed out.” someone else said.
