You probably heard by now, unless you’re living under a rock, that Oprah Winfrey pretty much became the most formidable challenge to President Trump in 2020 after her iconic acceptance speech at the 75th Golden Globe Awards. The beloved Oprah had just been honored with the Cecile B. DeMille Award. Her acceptance speech? Will be talked about for decades to come. Check it out.
We know, we’re not to get too ahead of ourselves. After all, she hasn’t officially given any indication that she’s interested. Well, depends how you look into that. After the speech, Oprah Winfrey further set the internet ablaze when her partner Stedman Graham hinted that she would be interested in a presidential ticket.
When asked by a Times reporter if his partner would consider running for president. Mr. Graham responded, “it’s up to the American people, ‘she would absolutely do it.'” Well, at the look, responses, and charter in the room and around the world, we believe many took that as a resounding yes, or, she should. More like, we want her to. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson certainly thought so by the look on his face during her iconic speech. In all seriousness, one thing Oprah certainly got people asking themselves is, who else is better fit to challenge Trump in 2020? Well Oprah, take your time, whatever you decide to do, know that millions believe the time is ripe for you to be President of the United States in 2020.
The Time is Ripe
The country needs healing from the ravages of man whose face you’re seeing above. The time is ripe for Oprah to be president because should would actually be a damn good formidable challenge to Trump Inc. She’s beloved by generations of people, truly beloved, deeply beloved, by both Baby Boomers and Millennials alike. She is the only candidate that can re-generate the same amount of energy it took for President Barack Obama to become president in 2008. She is the only candidate that can truly mobilize people to vote on virtue, a renewed sense of hope and belief in the American way of life that has been lost. She can match President Trump in monetary and social capital. She may genuinely not need to tie herself to vested interest, after all, she’s Oprah Winfrey.
She would do more to bridge the recently widened racial, gender, and economic gaps that have been exploited by the current President to much detriment to the country and the world. She’s loved and admired by all for reasons having very little to do with politics. She’s just Oprah Winfrey.
She’ll Do Better Than Hillary Clinton
There’s no greater symbol of female empowerment than Oprah Winfrey. Hillary Clinton embodied that too, but proved to be detached from the reality of the very same everyday women that would line up in droves to vote for Oprah. Why? She’s Oprah. Millennials grew up with her. White women feel comfortable with her. The Black vote would stand by her. Her name has never been attached to any “Three Strikes Rules,” infidelity issues, more importantly, she has empowered more women to be strong, bold, and courageous than Hillary Clinton did in her decades in politics. Blacks and LGBTQ people too. Oprah speaks, people listen.
Hillary Clinton spoke, many times, made a fortune speaking. Ask any random person, preferably female, if they can revisit one statement from Hillary Clinton that inspired them. Even if it’s just “You get a car, everybody gets car,” better yet, “it’s the Dawn of a New Era.” Go on. We’ll wait. The sad truth is that the time was ripe for Hillary Clinton too. However, over time, she didn’t realize how she came to embody the very same things in politics which anyone in her position should never be accused of doing, not being relatable and being detached, especially as a woman. How did a female presidential candidate manage to be detached from every day women? Oprah will do better than Hillary Clinton.
What are your thoughts on the matter. Should Oprah run for President? Is the time ripe for her? Will she run for president? Will she do better than Hillary Clinton? Share your thoughts.
