Oprah Winfrey Draws Criticism for Saying Trump’s Meeting With Obama Gave Her Hope


PicMonkey Collage - OprahOprah Winfrey doesn’t usually lose support among her fans, though it would seem that they are not pleased with her for holding out hope that Donald Trump‘s presidency might not be so bad.

The media mogul supported Hillary Clinton throughout the election, and she felt the shock that many felt when the former secretary of state was surprisingly defeated by the mogul this week. Nonetheless, Winfrey took notice of Trump’s meeting with President Obama this week, and she said that it “gave [her] hope” to see the two of them play nice with each other.

Unfortunately, Winfrey faced immediate backlash from Trump’s most ardent critics, who argue that there is no reason to be hopeful about the situation:
