Oprah Winfrey on President-Elect Trump: 'Hope Is Still Alive'

Oprah Winfrey is sharing her thoughts on President-elect Donald Trump and how she is trying to be positive during this time.

The former talk show host told the Associated Press that “hope is still alive” after Trump‘s meeting with President Obama, during which the future leader said he is willing to work with the current team in office.

Oprah also opened up about how she thinks Trump is feeling after being elected.

“I could sense, maybe I’m wrong, but I could sense from Donald Trump‘s body language even when he came out for the acceptance speech, that brotha has been humbled by this world thing. I think it’s a humbling process that now you literally have the weight of the world on your shoulders,” she said.

    The dumb fat black woman is filthy rich so the policies that Trump puts in won’t hurt her. Why should she care that a racist like him has become her President.

    The weight of the world? A little extreme. The weight of the people of the United States. Hopefully he won’t be a laughingstock as president, start a war or reinforce his racist opinions so people are killing each other more. Black lives matter. So do Muslims, Chinese, Mexican, LGBT, etc.

    You mean all lives matter then. Enough with this pc bullsh*t! Also, “the weight of the world” is very appropriate to say about the leader of the most powerful country in the world.
