Oprah Winfrey Says Trump Tweet Was A Mistake
Everyone’s favorite auntie Oprah Winfrey found herself in a little bit of hot water after the election last week, when Trump met with Obama and she fired off this tweet:
Well, on Sunday, Oprah ate her words a bit during a Facebook Live discussion with Ava Duvernay on her film 13th. Oprah went into the whys and hows of the tweet, but ultimately conceded that it wasn’t her place:
“I couldn’t breathe after the election, I was just like [gasp].
I was expecting tension, awkwardness and strain. So, when I saw them sitting together, and I actually took a picture of the screen that said ‘President-elect Trump honored to meet Obama. And President Obama was being so gracious, and I heard Donald Trump say, ‘He’s a good man.’ I heard Donald Trump say, ‘I’m going to be seeking his counsel.’ I literally went … I can breathe now.”
My mistake, and what I know to be true, you can never talk about everybody. Even in your arguments with your husband and your children. Don’t talk about what you should do, what you outta do, what everybody else should do, only speak for yourself.”
Aw, y’all leave Oprah alone. She’s been around long enough to fire off a questionable tweet here and there…
