Trump: 'I'll Beat Oprah'

The "stable genius" brags, boasts and refers to himself in the third person.

As speculation resurfaces about Oprah Winfrey's name on the presidential ballot in 2020, President Donald Trump has wasted no time in asserting his power.


"Yeah, I'll beat Oprah," he said Tuesday.

Trump made the assertion during a meeting with U.S. senators to discuss immigration reform.

"Oprah would be a lot of fun. I know her very well. You know, I did one of her last shows. She had Donald Trump — this was before politics — her last week, and she had Donald Trump and my family. It was very nice. No, I like Oprah. I don't think she's gonna run. I don't think she's gonna run. I know her very well."

The possibility of a Winfrey bid for the presidency has been rumored before. Renewed calls for her to enter politics came about Sunday after she delivered a powerful speech at the Golden Globe Awards.

At the moment, though, it may not be the first thing on her mind. Gayle King, a close friend of Winfrey's, said that she doesn't believe Winfrey is considering it right now.

"I do think she's intrigued by the idea, I do think that," King said on "CBS This Morning." "I also know that after years of watching 'The Oprah [Winfrey] Show' you always have the right to change your mind. I don't think at this point she's actually considering it."

Trump's remarks about Winfrey seemed uncharacteristic of the president, although he has spoken highly of the talk show host in the past. In 1999 Trump even named Winfrey as a potential vice president if he decided to run for president.

In an interview, Winfrey said President Trump's win made her rethink whether or not she could become President of the United States.

"She's popular, she's brilliant, she's a wonderful woman," he said in an interview with Larry King. "It would be a pretty good ticket."

However, Trump has shown that past affections bear no weight when someone becomes his competition as he quickly reverts to insults and smear tactics.

He demonstrated this when running against Hillary Clinton in the presidential election. The two were previously friendly; Bill and Hillary Clinton attended Trump's wedding to Melania, and the men played golf together. Trump once said after visiting the Clinton White House, "The First Lady is a wonderful woman who has handled pressure incredibly well."

His tune went very sour during election season, though — surpassing that of usual politics. Among other things, Trump accused Clinton of playing the woman card during the election, said she got "schlonged" (Yiddish slang for a man's genitals) in the 2008 Democratic presidential race against then Sen. Barack Obama and called her an "enabler" of Bill Clinton's infidelity.

Bootlickers Continue Their Synchronized Licking

Politics trump ethics for so-called "religious" so-called "leaders." Children screwed over.

Evangelist Franklin Graham, son of the late Billy Graham, might be disturbed by the images and audio of children crying after being separated from their parents after they are detained crossing the U.S. border. However, because Graham has been among President Trump's strongest supporters, he's not blaming the current administration.

UPDATED June 20, 2018 at 3:36 p.m.

Trump signs executive order to keep families together at border, says 'zero-tolerance' prosecution policy will continue.

The New York Times reports that the new executive order seeks to modify that existing consent decree in order to keep parents and children together in detention. However, Amnesty International says that those detentions could now be indefinite.

"Make no mistake—this executive order is a betrayal of families fleeing violence and persecution," Denise Bell, refugee and migrant rights researcher at Amnesty International USA said in a statement.

"Mothers, fathers, and children must not be held behind bars for prolonged periods for seeking safety. Not only does imprisoning children go against our country's shared values of dignity and equality, but it is also unlawful and threatens to permanently stain the U.S. human rights record."

ORIGINAL STORY

During an early afternoon meeting on Wednesday with members of Congress at the White House, President Donald Trump reportedly was going to announce an end to a major crisis in which migrant families are being separated after they are detained crossing the U.S. border.

Steve Bannon, former White House chief strategist, said that slain civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would be "proud" of what President Donald Trump has done for Blacks and Latinos in the U.S.

Bannon was the CEO of Trump's presidential campaign. Trump gained supporters by calling Mexicans rapists, committing to building a wall between Mexico and the U.S., allowing Black people to be physically assaulted at his rallies and lightly disavowing the support of white supremacists.

"Martin Luther King ... he would be proud of what Donald Trump has done for [the] Black and Hispanic working class, okay?" Bannon said on "This Week" Sunday.

On Sunday, King's daughter, Bernice King, CEO of The King Center, re-tweeted a post from The Washington Post reporter Eugene Scott who referenced a similar claim Bannon had made previously. She included a response, simply stating: “Absolutely not."

In May, King tweeted:

Bannon said in March at an event with far-right French politicians that they should "wear" accusations of racism "as a badge of honor."

Let them call you racist. Let them call you xenophobes," he said. “Let them call you nativists. Wear it as a badge of honor. Because every day, we get stronger and they get weaker."

Bannon said on Sunday that he was “talking specifically about Donald Trump and his policies."

“His economic nationalism doesn't care about your race, your religion, your gender, your sexual preference," he said.

The Trump administration's “zero tolerance" immigration policy is currently separating children of undocumented immigrants from their mothers and fathers.

King tweeted on Sunday:
