On Monday, the three network morning shows were in ecstasy over Oprah Winfrey’s Golden Globes acceptance speech and already predicting a 2020 presidential run for the former daytime talk show host. Anchors and correspondents seemed to be trying to outdo one another in who could heap more sycophantic praise on the liberal entertainer.
Awards season has begun which means a fresh opportunity for Hollywood and media elites to congratulate themselves. Oprah Winfrey warned the press is "under siege these days" despite their "insatiable dedication to uncovering the absolute truth."
Childish animosity or “a political passion?” Apparently Jennifer Lawrence classifies her hatred of the president as the latter.
CBS made its 50th season debut on Sunday night that included a 15-minute segment hosted by Oprah Winfrey, talking politics with a focus group in Grand Rapids, Michigan – half Trump voters, half non-Trump voters. The segment was pretty balanced, and Oprah’s moderating was...moderate. But almost everyone knows Oprah is not non-partisan. Last December, she hosted a goopy CBS hour celebrating Michelle Obama, and she's donated tens of thousands of dollars to Democrats.
In the current troubled climate of race relations in our country, you would think that Hollywood would be careful to avoid anything that would be construed as racist, but instead, they often seem to join the mainstream media in stirring up racial divisions. Oprah’s show Greenleaf demonstrated just that on its Wednesday, August 23, episode, “Changing Season.”
Oprah’s OWN Network premiered the latest season of its mega-church drama Greenleaf, which centers around Calvary World Ministries and the Greenleaf family who runs it, on Tuesday, August 15. The show picked back up where it left off…with a newly-divorced Christian father struggling with his gay desires.
After bashing Trump adviser Stephen Miller as a racist for defending immigration reform, then bashing the state of Missouri for their recently passed “racist” law that protects businesses from unfounded lawsuits, the View crew had still more ill-informed hot takes to give on Thursday’s show. Equally as loony liberal activist Michael Moore was today’s guest, and he fit right in with most of the panel’s hatred for the right and for Trump.
OWN’s Greenleaf, a drama that centers around mega-church Calvary World Ministries and the family who runs it (the Greenleafs), has featured the story of husband Kevin Saterlee (Tye White) and his struggle with gay desires since last season.
Oprah’s show Greenleaf, a drama featuring a Christian “megachurch” and the fallible humans behind it, has been all over the map when it comes to representing Christian values accurately. One minute, the show is depicting gay conversion therapy programs in a positive light. The next, it’s sending the message that Christians who don’t support gay marriage are “broken.”
In 1980, Ronald Reagan—a former actor—won the presidency. Just over 35 years later, Celebrity Apprentice star Donald Trump achieved the same feat. Now, a variety of Hollywood figures—most recently Oprah Winfrey and Disney CEO Bob Iger—think they might have a chance too. Check out the following slideshow to see who’s in the running for 2020.
Just what we all need to ring in the Christmas season: Un-merry millionaire Michelle Obama belly-aching about the burdens and sacrifices of public life with billionaire Oprah Winfrey. "There's nowhere in the world I can go and sit and have a cup of coffee," Obama lamented. It's a frequent grievance.
