Twitter has been dragging Oprah Winfrey for her comments about President elect Donald Trump. On Thursday (November 10th), she tweeted out a pic of Trump and President Obama, along with the caption, “Everybody take a deep breath! #HopeLives!” She also told Entertainment Tonight, [“I just saw President Elect Trump with President Obama in the White House and it gave me hope. To hear President elect Trump say that he had respect for President Obama. . . To hear President Obama say tht he has renewed confidence in the peaceful transition. I think everybody can take a deep breath.”] SOUNDCUE (:33 OC . .. deep breath)

She also told The AP, “I could sense, maybe I’m wrong, but I could sense from Donald Trump’s body language even when he came out for the acceptance speech, that brother has been humbled by this world thing,” she said. “I think it’s a humbling process that now you literally have the weight of the world on your shoulders.”


One person tweeted, “Oprah what the f*ck? This is not one of my favorite things.” Another wrote, “Oprah, you can take a deep breath and hold it while the rest of us literally fight for our lives right now. #smh.”
