President Trump wasn’t shy about his thoughts on Oprah’s latest 60 Minutes segment. It was fan-freaking-tastic!
But then, the President isn’t ever shy on what he thinks, is he?
That’s one of the things that supporters love about him.
60 Minutes had interviewed a few folks in August 2017 to discuss the ‘growing political divide’ in America.
The follow up was aired on Sunday night, with the group gathered and the discussion moderated by Oprah. The segment had a very high-profile viewer, the sitting POTUS.
The segment was promoted as one of unity — the group of 14 Americas have stayed in contact and some have become friends.

The President watched 60 Minutes and tweeted out the following ka-boom!:
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!

He called the segment ‘insecure‘ and claimed that the questions were ‘biased and slanted, the facts incorrect.‘
Was he right or wrong on that front?
Well… the questions certainly seemed to put the Trump-supporters on the defensive rather than neutral questions seeking ‘common ground’ as was claimed in a tweet by 60 Minutes.
Winfrey’s questions were wide-ranging but often pressured Trump’s supporters to defend him.
‘Okay, so polls are showing that respect for the United States is eroding around the world. Do you care what the world thinks of the United States?’ Winfrey asked.
Winfrey’s next question: ‘There have been some members of Congress, including Republicans, questioning his stability and fitness for office. What do you think of that, and do you believe he has the temperament to be president?’
They’re trying to find ‘common ground’:

Here’s Breitbart reporter, Charlie Spiering, with a list of the questions Oprah asked:

No bias there, right?
What do you think?
Would you love to see Oprah run in 2020 just to read the President’s tweets? It would certainly be entertaining.
Let us know what you think in the comments.
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
This shirt is sure to liven up the party. It doesn’t have just ONE controversial statement, but TWO. With Jesus in the mix, it could nearly start a riot.
Which, if you’ve read the book, was pretty much what would happen when Jesus swept into town, anyway. But which part of the shirt will get people more heated?
Jesus kicking ass? Some people actually have a problem with that?
Set aside the fact that he’s returning as a conquering king:
Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron.
Even in his time here, he was hardly the hippie-dippie gentle Jesus that pacifists would paint him as. He told his followers to ‘buy a sword’.
He swaggered into the temple like he owned the place. Because He does.
He saw the contempt the merchants and swindlers had for the real significance of the house — and he started braiding a whip.
A WHIP! Then he started, literally, cleaning house.
And before the Fundamentalists get too pleased with themselves… do you know what his very FIRST miracle was?
Turning water into wine.
No, dear. Not ‘grape juice’. Are you kidding? What self-respecting wedding host would have fallen for Welches?. The steward of the feast called it ‘the good stuff’. As in the quality vintage.
Why? Because a wedding is to be celebrated, with wine.
Just how much did Jesus ‘approve’ or ‘disapprove’ of wine?
Let’s flip the question back on the teetotalers: do the words ‘drink this in remembrance of me’ ring any bells?
Now that we’ve answered THAT question… Cheers!
