Looks like Donald Trump is continuing his lobotomy tour. First he asked members of Congress to bring him a Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals bill he can sign that would ensure that some 800,000 children of immigrants stay put; and now he honestly thinks that he could beat black America’s God Muva, Oprah Winfrey, in a presidential run.


Rumors began spreading about Oprah making a run for the presidency after her speech during the Golden Globes, in which she shut things down and stole the show. Social media began pushing “Oprah 2020.”

On Tuesday, Trump assured the people of Hawk Spit, Ark., that they have nothing to worry about should Oprah consider a run for office.


“I’ll beat Oprah. Oprah would be a lot of fun. I know her very well,” he told reporters on Tuesday, Variety reports. Trump added that his family was on one of the final episodes of her show, because he wants to show that he’s really friends with a billionaire.

“I like Oprah. I don’t think she’s going to run,” Trump added. He’s praying that Oprah doesn’t run because he knows that he wouldn’t stand a black man’s chance of getting a fair trial in Cream Chipped Beef, Idaho.

The only Oprah authority any of us should listen to, Gayle King, noted on CBS This Morning that the former daytime talk show host-turned-Weight Watchers spokesperson is “intrigued” by the idea and hasn’t fully dismissed the idea of running the country.
