Just in case anyone missed it, NBC recently tweeted an endorsement of former talk show host Oprah Winfrey for president. The tweet came in response to a joke Seth Meyers told at the Golden Globes on Sunday night.
“In 2011, I told some jokes about our current president at the White House Correspondents Dinner. Jokes about how he was unqualified to be president,” Meyers said. “Some have said that night convinced him to run. So if that’s true, I just want to say: Oprah, you will never be president! You do not have what it takes!”
That joke prompted the official NBC Twitter channel to post, “Nothing but respect for OUR future president.”
Well, Donald Trump Jr. had a little something to say about all of this, because well, his father actually is the president…
The junior Donald tweeted:
“In case anyone had any doubts about where the media stands this should take care of it. The bias against @realDonaldTrump is now so obvious they have simply given up hiding it.
“Can you trust anything they say at this point?
“Americans see the truth in job #s & in their wallets!”

There is so much to comment on here, but let’s start with the obvious…
No, I seriously doubt that Seth Meyers and his inane comments at a White House Correspondents Dinner prompted Donald J. Trump to run for the highest office of the land. The sheer amount of time, effort, money, and personal cost to him and his family far outweigh any perceived revenge taken against Mr. Meyers.
Secondly, it’s obvious that the liberal media machine would love for Oprah Winfrey to run for president. Although Ms. Winfrey has strong opinions that it’s perfectly reasonable to disagree with, it seems obvious she is an intelligent and capable woman who I doubt is interested in running for president. Part of her charm lies in the fact that she seems somehow far removed from the political fray.
And last but not least, bravo Donald Junior for standing up for his father. Yes, it is obvious the mainstream media is biased against President Trump, but the country as a whole is quite happy to have him.
What do you think of the liberal mainstream media bias?
Do you agree with Donald Trump Junior?
