    Trump is more Republican than most Republicans are, at least in his rhetoric and policy decisions. Trump wants to bring back fossil fuels, he denies climate change, he has no problem putting guns in anyone's hands, he's basically told the rest of the world to eat sh!t, he's intent on dismantling the ACA, he supports tax cuts for the affluent, he supports Israel and hates brown and black people and has no problem killing other species or trashing wildlife refuges. WTF do you want?

    I'm with this sentiment, but I wouldn't mind someone in their fifties.

    I agree. fifties would be ok.
    35? these days many in their 30's are still trying to figure out who they are.
    It may not be so much that I've conceded your point as that you just can't hear me rolling my eyes.

    Re: Will Oprah Run?

    I'd really like to see an election that is about issues - not personalities. The only way I see to do that is for the dems to run a candidate that does not provoke an immediate visceral negative reaction from southern voters, before they even hear what the candidate has to say. I'd also like to see the press chastised for their past performance and vow to avoid the Barnum and Bailey coverage the used for this past election.

    Re: Will Oprah Run?

    I can already envision the Republican attack ads if Oprah ran. They would start with the "you're getting a car, and you're getting a car. Everybody's getting a car." Then they would launch on how she would want to give cars to everyone on welfare. etc. etc. etc. It would be ugly.

    I think she's smart enough to avoid the whole thing. Really, who would want to subject themselves to the kind of abuse that would come?

    Yup. I believe that she is smarter than to fall for that.

    I can't stop imagining our IDIOT PM jumping up and down on one of her pristine white interview chairs like Tom Cruise did, if she were to win the position.

    Queue circus music as I exit.

    Re: Will Oprah Run?

    Seal has something to say about this.
    On Thursday, Seal took to Instagram to call out Oprah Winfrey, who he framed as a hypocrite over her friendship to alleged sexual abuser Harvey Weinstein.

    The British singer posted an meme of Winfrey kissing Weinstein on the cheek with the words: “When you have been part of the problem for decades, but suddenly they all think you are the solution.”

    He also captioned sarcastically, “Oh I forgot, that’s right…..you’d heard the rumours but you had no idea he was actually serially assaulting young stary-eyed actresses who in turn had no idea what they were getting into. My bad.”

    Seal added the hashtag “#SanctimoniousHollywood.”

    I would never trust anyone who runs for election on the back of Celebrity Status. With Oprah you would get people voting for her without having the foggiest idea of what her political policies are, simply because of her being some sort of TV Presenter.

    Furthermore, she is someone I would never vote for anyway. She's a Religious nutjob for a start which, in my opinion, has NO place in politics.
