'You Don't Unite People By Attacking Oprah': Ellen DeGeneres Fires Back At Donald Trump

Date February 23, 2018

After Oprah Winfrey’s 60 Minutes aired, she woke up just to find out that Donald Trump had an opinion on this matter. And not a very pleasant one! In her segment, the 64-year-old met with 14 anti- and pro-Trump voters to answer some burning questions. Judging by his tweet, it seems the president was not happy about it. Just take a look:

Oprah’s reaction

In fact, Winfrey rushed to double-check the segment to make sure all the information was valid. She even called the producers as there were at least 7 people who critiqued the tape before airing it. There were multiple revision and edits, so Oprah thinks all facts were correct.

I was working very hard to do the opposite of what I was hate tweeted about so, it’s okay.

Ellen takes on the commander-in-chief

Even though the media mogul took it easy, her friend Ellen DeGeneres did not. In one of her show’s latest episodes, the host called out the president to stop this political divide. She also broke down Trump’s tweet, showing that his claims were wrong.

You’re not just some guy on Twitter anymore -- you’re the president for all of us. It is your job to unite people, and you don’t do it by attacking people.

Having fun

The media personality has lots of friends, so Ellen might not be the only one standing up for her. Apart from discussing Trump’s tweet with Oprah, DeGeneres also invited another friend of Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, to play a game "Who Knows Oprah Best."
