    This random tweet from some author lady pretty much sums up how normal people should basically feel about this:

    Oprah would make a far better POTUS than 45. She’s diplomatic, successful, well-read, committed to human rights, & (most importantly) she knows what she doesn’t know. But y’all are going to have to talk me into a shift to celebrity nominees. I have....reservations.

    A retarded goat would make a better president than Trump.

    Oprah Winfrey fits into pretty much exactly what you seem to view as an ideal American: she's as close to a "self made" billionaire as one can get (certainly moreso than Trump), she's a proven success in business (certainly moreso than Trump), she's a proven leader (certainly moreso than Trump), she has proven ability to foster good relationships (certainly moreso than Trump). She's basically a more successful Trump, but having come from an actual humble background, she understands the value of hard work much more.
    What's the point of this exercise? Should we debate what kind of President Josh Donaldson would be?

    The point is that Oprah is considering a presidential run, and a lot of the reasons many people gave to vote for Trump also apply to her, but moreso.

    She is everything that many people cited as reasons to vote for Trump (successful business person, successful leader, not an establishment politician, extremely wealthy and "can't be bought", proven track record of "winning"). Where she exceeds Trump is in her proven ability to foster positive relationships, her ability to understand the position that people from literally every socioeconomic status are in, having lived through all of them at some point in her life, and her ability to understand the importance of expertise and that she doesn't have all the answers (she knows what she doesn't know). Also, she's not a raging lunatic.

    There are probably many more qualities that would make her a better president; however, I'm not trying to argue that Oprah Winfrey would be an excellent president, or should be president. I'm just trying to show that if you believe that Donald Trump is qualified to be president, you must concede that Oprah Winfrey is also at least equally qualified.

    All rational people ignore trolls, especially this one. He makes Cleveland Steamer seem interesting.

    Sir, I'm not a troll. I just made a good argument about Oprah vs Trump. How is that trolling?
