Why Oprah Winfrey would make a great president

Golden Globe Awards, Oprah Winfrey

Not long after the Golden Globe Awards in which Oprah Winfrey gave an empowering speech, it was revealed by Brian Stelter of CNN that Oprah is seriously considering running for president come 2020. Progressives are jumping for joy at this news, which is not a second too soon – after two years of dealing with a narcissistic billionaire known as Donald Trump taking up space in the Oval Office, it’s time to get someone that really cares for Americans. This is the cue for Oprah Winfrey, an inspiring woman who has the incredible ability to connect to anyone regardless of where they come from or what their story is.

It’s always a possibility that a political leader will at some point become self-centered, ignorant, and an elitist, but not many have all three traits…until Trump, who is therefore quite unique in his own way. Again, cue Oprah, who has worked hard for years to support us, the people of America, with her understanding, moral leadership, humanity, and values, while Trump was making himself money and putting up buildings. There’s really no comparison whatsoever when you think about it.

Oprah Winfrey possesses the kind of qualities that should be in a political leader but often aren’t – thinking of others’ interests first and using her time to help them. And this kind of attentive treatment isn’t just for her own political party or agenda like we see in certain people, either, but to uplift as many folks as she can in a genuine, personal effort. That’s making a difference.

Sure, we’re aware that Oprah has made herself some money, but it was done so through helping others. Also, who do we know that donated millions of dollars for those in desperate need after natural disasters like hurricanes Rita and Katrina ruined lives? Oprah Winfrey. Who do we know that has given hundreds of millions in support of opportunities for education in the US? Oprah Winfrey. Who do we know that donated all this money but didn’t seek recognition or popularity for doing so, unlike Trump? Oprah Winfrey.

Even after facing so much adversity in her life, Oprah has kept going, never giving up hope or allowing others to. She is tirelessly persistent, overcoming hurdles while being such an inspiration to everyone alike. She knows her power but doesn’t use it for leverage.

Oprah Winfrey would make American great again.
