Trump Comes for Oprah Over '60 Minutes' Focus Group And Gets Slammed

He called her "very insecure," among other things, on Twitter.

Published February 19, 2018

Since he’s never actually doing anything presidential, Donald Trump spends a lot of his time (when he’s not on the golf course) watching television.

  1. Of course, Fox News is his favorite but on Sunday night (February 18), The Donald decided to tune into CBS’ weekly 60 Minutes program. On this week’s episode, Oprah Winfrey revisited a focus group in Grand Rapids, Michigan who she previously gathered to assess Trump’s performance as President.

    With half the room for and half against, Oprah led a discussion about the myriad of headlines that’ve come out since 45 took office. Apparently, Trump didn’t like what he saw and, of course, took to Twitter to air out his grievances.

  2. "Just watched a very insecure Oprah Winfrey, who at one point I knew very well, interview a panel of people on 60 Minutes," he tweeted. "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!"

    Thankfully Twitter tore him to shreads over the comments. Some pointed out that Donnie was nice about Oprah in the past.

  3. Others criticized his tweet's actual structure.

  4. And most just s**t on him and his ignorance and always playing the victim card.

  5. The fact that Donald Trump is calling someone else insecure makes our head explode. The hypocricy is sending us into a dimension of trolling we've seldom been to.

    Oh, and notice Trump once again targeting a powerful Black person. We're still waiting for your criticism of Eminem, Mr. President.
