Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale is becoming more bizarre by the episode, but this week is probably the peak of silliness this season.

Oprah Winfrey is a formidable opponent to President Trump, according to one co-host on The View.

On Monday night, CBS News seemed eager to start their 2020 presidential campaign coverage as they led CBS Evening News with a segment hyping a theoretical campaign run by Oprah Winfrey. “‘We welcome the challenge.

An absurd start to a newscast that wasn’t repeated on any other network.
CNN political analyst April Ryan fangirled over the idea that Oprah Winfrey could run for president in 2020, on At This Hour With Kate Bolduan Monday morning. Ryan went on an irrational rant, gushing that the media mogul was both “every person” and a “rock star.”
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.
