Here’s Why an Oprah Presidential Run Would Fail

Liberals are falling over themselves to praise Oprah Winfrey following her Golden Globes speech lambasting Hollywood sexual predators; NBC even went so far as to declare Oprah “OUR future president.” However, like most liberals, Oprah is a huge hypocrite and has more than just a few skeletons in her closet that would most likely tank a presidential run before it could even get off the ground.

As The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro recently told Fox News, Oprah is hardly leading the charge in the fight against sexual abuse in Hollywood. “She was standing in front of an entire town filled with sexual abusers and harassers,” Shapiro told Martha MacCallum. “She said nothing about it for 20 years; she was being cheered by people who said nothing about it for 20 years, and there she is pretending that she’s leading the fight.”

Further, Oprah is a leftist after Obama’s own heart who never hesitates to cry “racism” and consistently turns a blind eye on radical Islamic terrorism.

In November 2015, Oprah featured on her “Belief” series Varun Soni, the dean of Religious Life at the University of Southern California. As a scholar, you’d think Soni would know better; but he proclaimed that terrorists simply misunderstand the meaning of “jihad.” “There is nothing holy about war,” Soni said. “What ‘jihad’ actually represents is an internal struggle, the battle that is raging in our own heart. And all of our religious traditions talk about that internal struggle. In that respect, jihad is not just a Muslim idea but it’s a reality of the human condition.”

Tell that to the people whose families are being murdered in the name of jihad.

But Oprah’s position on terrorism is far from her worst offense. During a 2013 interview with Anderson Cooper promoting her film, “The Butler,” Oprah suggested that most Americans are racist and probably don’t even know it. “A lot of people think if they think they’re not using the n-word themselves, they physically aren’t using the n-word themselves, and do not harbor ill will towards black people that it’s not racist,” she said.

And if that’s not disgusting enough, in another 2013 interview with BBC, Oprah offered her solution to racism: the death of entire generations.

“You know, as long as people can be judged by the color of their skin, problem’s not solved,” Oprah said. “As long as there are people who still, there’s a whole generation – I say this, you know, I said this, you know, for apartheid South Africa, I said this for my own, you know, community in the south – there are still generations of people, older people, who were born and bred and marinated in it, in that prejudice and racism, and they just have to die.”

Divisive, judgmental, and despicable position like that are exactly what caused Obama’s approval rating to drop and Hillary Clinton to lose the election. On Monday night, a source close to Oprah said that she has no intention of running for president in 2020. Let’s hope it stays that way.
