Since Oprah Winfrey’s incredible “speech at a Hollywood awards show launched a round of presidential speculation,” writes Steven Shepard at Politico, some voters across the nation think she should challenge President Donald Trump in 2020, leaving the black college community shook.
But anything is possible in 2018, especially with President Trump in office now and that’s the real key-key. Ki-ki-ki-ki.
Anyway. Everybody loves Oprah, who graduated from historically black Tennessee State University in 1986, according to the school’s website. In case you missed it, here are the receipts that prove once and for all that Winfrey, in fact, is an alumna of TSU:
For all you stupid people out there.
“Here’s what I’m grateful for: One. The beautiful, eloquent powerful, brilliant, inspirational and very presidential stable genius that is Oprah Winfrey. Two. HBCUs (where both she and I attended). A new day on the horizon,” Jalina Porter posted on her Twitter account.
Another Twitter user, Corbin J. Pickett, said, “Oprah equals the product of an HBCU.”
Pickett continues, “Felt now was a good time to remind folks.”
“Run Oprah. Run,” another Twitter user said.
However, leftwing voters aren’t exactly clamoring the black college grad to run against Trump in 2020 just yet, according to Politico.
“Still, there’s enough evidence to continue fueling speculation about her political prospects. Winfrey performs well on polling ballot tests, tying or leading Trump in a number of surveys. The POLITICO/Morning Consult poll shows Democratic voters prefer her to a host of other potential candidates — except former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.)
And despite the persistent disapproval of Trump’s job performance thus far, voters are still open to political neophytes as presidential candidates — though Democratic voters are more likely to say they want candidates with experience in elected office.
The topline result from the POLITICO/Morning Consult poll: Winfrey would lead Trump by 2 percentage points in a head-to-head matchup, 40 percent to 38 percent. More than one-in-five voters, 22 percent, are undecided.”
