#Oprah2020, She’s Wearing Serious Glasses
The hashtag of #Oprah2020 is trending galactically after Oprah Winfrey’s “Presidential” speech at the 2018 Golden Globe awards last night. Oprah Winfrey was accepting the Cecil B. deMille Award for “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment”. The Golden Globe Awards are presented and voted on, according to Vox.com, by the approximately 90 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press. Victory Girls’ Nina Bookout wrote about the “hot mess” Golden Globes last night and she nailed it. Today, it’s all #Oprah2020.
Oprah Winfrey gave an address that was so “Presidential” audience members wept. Gather up your hankies and your headache powders and let’s behold the magnificence that is #Oprah2020:
Pardon me, I have to go get another box of tissues and some Clear Eyes. It was just too much. The bobble head celebutwits and the twitterers are over-wrought and you know Oprah Winfrey meant every vapid, meaningless word because she was wearing serious eye glasses. Of course, she does have her own line of eyeglasses, which I will not promote.
Oprah is denying, sort of, that she is running in 2020, per Bloomberg.com:
Minutes after giving a rousing speech at the Golden Globes Awards that promised “a new day” for women, minorities and the downtrodden, Oprah Winfrey said she has no ambitions to run for president.
In a brief interview backstage at the event, Winfrey was told that “Oprah 2020” was circulating on Twitter, and asked whether she planned to run. “I don’t — I don’t,” the 63-year-old billionaire said.
But, but the drumbeat. Again, from Bloomberg.com:
The drumbeat was well underway. “She. Is. Running,” said John Podhoretz, editor of Commentary magazine. “Oprah. 2020,” said Shaun King, the Black Lives Matter activist. The host of the Golden Globes, late-night comedian Seth Meyers, jokingly urged Winfrey to run in his opening monologue, noting that President Donald Trump had reportedly decided make his bid for the office after he was the butt of Meyers’s jokes at the White House Correspondents Dinner in 2011.
What did Oprah say, in her serious eye wear, that left everyone in the galaxy gobsmacked? She sat on linoleum in 1964. Well, who didn’t. Linoleum covered every floor and some walls back in the olden days. The Serious Oprah said that powerful men abuse women. Yeah, like Oprah Winfrey and Meryl Streep, Shirley McClaine, Angelina Jolie, Rita Wilson and every other female star wearing black in that room didn’t know. Gossip, blind items and whispers have been around for decades. They knew. They all knew and they are hypocrites. It is now politically expedient to denounce the cretins. Not gonna cost The Oprah a thing. In fact, even if she doesn’t run for President, it ups her Powerful Earth Mother quotient exponentially.
From the CNN transcript:
I want to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press Association because we all know the press is under siege these days. We also know it’s the insatiable dedication to uncovering the absolute truth that keeps us from turning a blind eye to corruption and to injustice. To — to tyrants and victims, and secrets and lies. I want to say that I value the press more than ever before as we try to navigate these complicated times, which brings me to this: what I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have.
Listen up, Miss Winfrey. The Press is not under siege. The American people are fed up with being lied to every day. The President is reflecting our frustration.
And, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association couldn’t uncover the well-known antics of the powerful Hollywood cave trolls that abused women, even though every one of them knew. Just like you knew.
So I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon! And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say “Me too” again.
The women and men with you in that room are hypocritical cowards. “A new day is on the horizon!” Darn skippy, Miss Winfrey. We the great unwashed of America are over you and your book reviews, crystals and bath oils. Take your serious glasses and go sell your hypocrisy somewhere else. And, one more little thing. I want to say “Me, too.” I want to say “Me, too” to not watching an award show ever. Unless, that is, they start streaming police force or military award shows.
#Oprah2020. No. Thank. You.
