    President Rock , Vice-President Oprah .....the ticket would be simply insane to watch for Republicans going into melt down mode. They'd attack them as stars and outta touch. But given who they have as President it won't go far.

    If any black women in the U.S can be a president that is Oprah.

    But then again i do not support celebrities having political power.

    Better than the current office holder. Oprah really did make it on her own, rather than starting with millions of dollars of seed money from her father.

    That said, I do think one should have some political office experience before being elected President. Funny thing, though. The only talk show host I know of who has political experience is Jerry Springer. However, considering the reason he only served one term as mayor of Cincinnati, he might not be the best candidate either.

    I feel like we should be better than this and not just elect media stars for higher office. We went down this path with Reagan and at least he had two terms as governor and was smart enough to hire and keep competent staff for the White House.

    I'm not a big Oprah fan. She ran her show almost like a cult. I never watched the show much myself but when they would pan the audience I would laugh at the enraptured look on the faces in the audience. But if ended up her against Trump I would vote for her in a heartbeat. She would attract the kind of cabinet and WH staff that could run rings around the Trump circus.

    there's a bill going right to the floor to overturn the FCCs repeal of net neutrality, it probably has just enough votes to get to the Idiots desk, and he'll veto it

    and that will be another nail in his coffin

    I'd prefer that Oprah, who's show has legitimized dangerous anti-scientific and pseudoscientific ideologies, to stay the hell away from lawmaking.

    You know, I'd even accept a Joe/Flo Schmoe off the street as long as they were capable of studying up on what they don't know that's needed to run this country over your average celebrity. Still I'd vote for practically anyone over our lovable orange shitgibbon.

    We could at least let Springer hang around the White House, starting shit and instigating fist fights for the public to laugh at.
    Though that wouldn't really be that different than what's going on now anyway.

    Just goes to show the rampant epidemic of stupid in this country actually does not start with our governing officials. No, after all, its society that grooms and produces these same officials. There's a reason for that. We the People are just as idiotic. Make a nice speech and suddenly you're a presidential candidate. Never mind the fact she has no more political experience, that one pesky detail that kinda defines the freaking office, than the guy who currently holds it. We learn nothing.

    The funniest part of that Miller/Tapper exchange was when Miller says something about the magical whatever going on in the country.

    Abso-freaking-lutely! In its own way, Oprah’s cult is just as mindless and dangerous as Trump’s. I don’t want her in a position to govern a local PTA, never mind the goddamn country.
