In an entertainment news reported by Zach Johnson on February 22, 2018 at 4:45AM on http://www.eonline.com.
It was reported that Oprah Winfrey has no time for nonsense.
And thats precisely how she would describe President Donald Trump’s recent tweet,in which he criticized her interviewing abilities in a 60 Minutes segment, called her “very insecure” and dared her to run for office,just “so she can be exposed and defeated just like all of others!”
Winfrey did not respond to Trump’s via Twitter Sunday,but was asked about it on Ellen DeGeneres Show Thursday.
“I woke up and I just thought…….”Winfrey said,raising her hands.”And I don’t like giving negativity power,so I just thought,”What?’
What I actually did was I went back and looked at the tape to see if there was any place that that could be true.Did I feel like it was slanted or biased?I went back and looked at every tape;I called the producers”
Just watched a very insecure Oprah Winfrey,who at one point I knew very well,I interview a panel of people on 60Minutes.The questions were biased and slanted,the facts incorrect.Hope Oprah runs as she can be exposed and defeated just like others!

As Winfrey explained to Ellen DeGeneres, whenever she films segments for the CBS program,
“You sit in a room with at least seven other people who critique the piece before you air it-before you do the introduction to it-and then they give you the critique.They critique every word.’Is this fair?’.You have this whole panel of people looking at whether it was fair,And actually,the first time I saw it,I said,”There’s something missing from the conversation”.
Winfrey moderated a discussion with a diverse group of voters from Grand Rapids MI,asking questions based on recent headlines.”When I had asked question,’Do you care about what other people thinh about America?’they only used Democratic side.I remembered the guy Matt has said,’No.We’re the only people who are worried,that other countries are thinking of us.’And I said,’I think you should go back and put that in because it makes it more balanced.’So,I was working very hard to do the opposite of what I was hate-tweeted about,[but] it’s OK”
DeGeneres defended Winfrey earlier in the show,saying,Trump has “gone too far”.
‘Oprah is my friend”she warned Trump,”and when you mess with Oprah, you mess with me”.
“President Trump,it’s time for an aha moment”.
“You’re not just some guy on Twitter anymore.You’re the President for all of us.It is your job to unite people,and you don’t do it by attacking people,especially Oprah”,she added.”Like I said, you don’t mess with Oprah.She’s my friend.
Despite Trump’s challenge to run for President in 2020,Winfrey isn’t interested in the job.
“I’ve always felt very secure and confident with myself in knowing what I could do and what I could not.And so it’s not something that interests me,”she told Instyle.”I don’t have the DNA for it”.
