President Donald Trump on Sunday mocked Oprah Winfrey for her performance on CBS’ “60 MInutes.”
“Just watched a very insecure Oprah Winfrey, who at one point I knew very well, interview a panel of people on 60 Minutes,” he tweeted Sunday night.
“The questions were biased and slanted, the facts incorrect. Hope Oprah runs so she can be exposed and defeated just like all of the others!”
Winfrey was seen on the show leading a panel discussion with 14 people from Grand Rapids, Michigan, the same group the show had convened months earlier.
“One year into Donald Trump’s presidency, Americans remain divided, often unwilling to listen to what the other side has to say,” Winfrey said by way of introduction. “It’s happening in families, among friends and at the workplace. We witnessed that schism first-hand last fall when we went to Grand Rapids, Michigan, and gathered 14 people — seven who voted for Mr. Trump, seven who did not — for a wide-ranging discussion about politics, policy and the president himself.
“To mark President Trump’s first year in office, we decided to repeat the experiment,” she added.
At the recent Golden Globe Awards, the entertainer and entertainment mogul drew wide praise in Hollywood and beyond for a speech she gave, even leading to some people to call for her to run for president in 2020.
