150616161704-donald-trump-june-16-2015-exlarge-169Donald Trump sat down with George Stephanopoulos today after announcing that he’s joined the GOP field of POTUS candidates. The ABC News chief anchor reminded the real estate mogul/reality star that the second time he mulled a White House run, in 1999 as a Reform Party candidate, he said he’d like to run with Oprah Winfrey (Trump first flirted with the idea of a White House bid way back in ’87.)

Trump, who announced his presidential candidacy in a speech at Trump Tower in Manhattan, responded that Trump/Oprah would be the winning ticket in 2016. “I think Oprah would be great. I’d love to have Oprah,” he said, sitting with Stephanopoulos at his high-rise. “I think we’d win easily, actually.”

When Stephanopoulos asked if Winfrey is still on his VPOTUS shortlist, Trump said: “She’s great, she’s talented, she’s a friend of mine. She’s a good person. I’ve been on her show. I like Oprah. I mean, is that supposed to be a bad thing? I don’t think so.”

    Given the political talking point of democrat animus for both Republicans and the wealthy, combining two celebrities with billionaire status does not seem to be a winning combination, regardless of the success factor exemplifying the attainment of the “American Dream.” Identification with the common man and the problems of working people is what is needed. Cosmetic superficiality is not going to solve America’s problems.

    Bad move Donald. Oprah doesn’t have the philosophical credentials or voting appeal of the voter base you’re trying to excite.

    They could have Frank Spotnitz write their speeches!
    And Kelsey Grammer could be their five star general…
    And Ben Affleck could play Mohammad…
    Catch my drift?

  • John VanderKelen

    Yuck!

    Oprah is so far left – except for the making money part of her – that she’s out past Hawaii. I actually thought he was a potential candidate, now I see he’s just a spoiler.

  • Dolores Adams

    Find someone else other than Oprah.

  • The race just got infinitely more entertaining. Now THIS is “must see TV”. Go Donald Go. Queen Sarah’s got nothing on you!! The Boys Are Back In Town!!

  • Evan

    Trump will NEVER get my vote if he is going to
    team up with that coon!

  • raffaelecafagna

    Not interested ; bad attitude ; I will not

  • KDC

    Hey, Trump, you hook up with Oprah and that’ll be the quickest door out! She is an illuminati, NWO, LESBIAN, democratic rake!.
    I like your strength and business knowledge, your take charge persona. Actually, I think you would be good as president, compared to some. But, I cannot stand that deceiving OW.

    • gingergirl

      Not to mention that she is very Racist! We were making progress until oama came along; can you imagine where we would be with her in power?

  • pilgrimson

    If that’s official, he’s gone!

  • Ed Pekarovich

    Running with that cow would cost him at the polls.

    • Lurline Sintros

      It just cost him one vote!
