@BroderickGreer does Oprah have amnesia or was she not here the last 18 months?

OK, who ever thought they would use this phrase " Oprah just sold out" https://t.co/O5D30QmoHa

I don't need @Oprah telling me I can take a deep breath when this new administration supports cutting my job and firing me for who I date.

It sure is a mystery why Oprah is forgiving our income-ing President.

My first time seeing this.
I'm stumped honestly. Want to assume she means something deep that doesn't come through well on Twitter. https://t.co/eNUM2MxCcz
