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.
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.
Just watched a very insecure Oprah Winfrey, who at one point I knew very well, interview a panel of people on 60 Minutes. 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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 19, 2018
"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.
Trump was considering a presidential run on the Reform Party ticket, he told Larry King “I love Oprah. Oprah would always be my first choice,”— kj (@thescorpio69) February 19, 2018
“If she’d do it, she’d be fantastic. She’s popular, she’s brilliant, she’s a wonderful woman,” Trump said.
Others criticized his tweet's actual structure.
If they're "facts," how can they be incorrect?— Brendan Savage (@BrendanSavage) February 19, 2018
And most just s**t on him and his ignorance and always playing the victim card.
POTUS singing same old “Cry Me A River” song. We need a president that isn’t always a victim. #ICallBS— #WeDeserveBetter (@Kathy051749) February 19, 2018
Does it hurt to be as petty, insecure and insignificant as you truly are? Don’t answer that... we can see the answer’s yes. pic.twitter.com/n6VnNcQoLh— Antwone Holloway (@MrTHollo) February 20, 2018
We all know what his problem with her is. She's a strong, black woman. That's it.— CRG9000 (@neutral_milk83) February 19, 2018
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.
