Female, black and lesbian would restore my faith in the world. Trump's supporters would hate that and she seems far more suited than him. She would walk it right?

If Trunp has taught us anything, it’s that tv stars with no political experience don’t make good presidents.

LineysRunes Mon 08-Jan-18 23:08:46

She's not fucking insane though

Ieatcake Mon 08-Jan-18 23:11:13

Trump and her are nothing alike though! No lessons learnt from thay

JeReviens Mon 08-Jan-18 23:11:39

Oprah is a lesbian? shock

fizzthecat1 Mon 08-Jan-18 23:12:02

No. I'm sorry but it's the most IMPORTANT job in the world, yet seems to be the only one you are able to get with NO relevant qualifications or experience. Look up any other job, whether it's an Accounts Assistant or Project Manager. They want years of experience. Yet apparently you can run have the most important job in Politics if you're a popular celebrity/TV presenter. Ridiculous.

Yeah maybe every president from now should be a celebrity...

What qualifies her to be president exactly?

Is it seriously her being black, female and lesbian op? What policies has she etc etc

When did Oprah come out?hmm

DivorceNovice Mon 08-Jan-18 23:17:20

She would probably do a better job than Trump but that's not really the yardstick anyone should use. Especially for position of one of the world leaders. I don't think she is qualified for the job but hey I can't say I really understand how the Americans vote based on their current President. Also, since when has Oprah been lesbian?

WorraLiberty Mon 08-Jan-18 23:19:36

I completely agree with fizzthecat

Lets see...you know an actual politician who has a career in politics.

SilverySurfer Mon 08-Jan-18 23:20:51

So is that's all that's needed to be a good POTUS these days? A celebrity, female, black, lesbian? What a pity she's not also old and disabled, you could have ticked all the 'right-on' boxes then. Utterly pathetic.

KiaOraAura Mon 08-Jan-18 23:23:01

Oprah's gay? Someone had better tell Stedman.

WorraLiberty Mon 08-Jan-18 23:23:45

Where do we stand on pet ownership and does she have any?

OlBitey Mon 08-Jan-18 23:23:48

Maybe? She seems alright. I agree having a black female president would be awesome.

But having a TV star like Oprah as potus is just a liberal/leftwing fantasy. Just like trump as president is an alt-right fantasy; it's just buying into a constructed TV persona. This OTT celebrity will come and fix everything where everyone else has failed? Seems unlikely

hazeyjane Mon 08-Jan-18 23:24:17

lesbian? Stedman will be shocked!

Although there have been rumours.

I think after the present fuck up president, it might be a good idea to have someone with experience in politics.

You forgot the one legged bit. (Rolling my eyes)

I’m still holding out for Michelle Obama, couldn’t care less what colour or gender or sexual orientation she is, I think she knows politics, is aware of the issues, has a brain and would make a good POTUS.

Abouttoblow Mon 08-Jan-18 23:25:31

Oprah's a lesbian? That's news confused

StripySocksAndDocs Mon 08-Jan-18 23:25:58

Oprah is a lesbian. Is she aware of this?

WorraLiberty Mon 08-Jan-18 23:26:58

Michelle Obama would be brilliant.

Am I the only one who's getting irrationally irritated by the over use of 'POTUS' on this thread? blush

Probably.

hazeyjane Mon 08-Jan-18 23:28:22

No not just you, Worra. I always change it to POOTUS in my head, which sounds like a posh Latin fart

WorraLiberty Mon 08-Jan-18 23:30:07

That goes well with 'Trump', hazeyjane! grin

Ieatcake Mon 08-Jan-18 23:30:39

Oh I'm sorry, I had it in my head that she was gay I'd always thought she was. But a quick Google and she says no. Whoops

But she has plenty of qualifications and skills useful for the job. Did anyone see her speach?

Damn, I knew I forgot something. grin

ClementineWardrobe Mon 08-Jan-18 23:32:29

A Broccoli would make a better President than the incumbent. Oprah couldn't be worse.

Boynamedsue Mon 08-Jan-18 23:32:55

I think someone with an actual political background would be better.

And I'm pretty sure she's not gay.
