Right on cue. Oprah Winfrey is one of the richest women in America, but as President Obama finds himself drowning in his own disasters and dishonesty, Winfrey betrays America to a foreign media source.

“There’s a level of disrespect for the office that occurs,” Winfrey tells the BBC, “and occurs because in some cases, and maybe even many cases, because he’s African-American. There’s no question about that, and it’s the kind of thing that nobody ever says, but everybody’s thinking it.”

Actually, just about everyone on the left has used that smear at some point over the last five years, repeatedly and with glee. Including Oprah Winfrey.

Also, apparently George W. Bush is “African-American” too.

In the same interview, Winfrey also declared her desire for “old racists” to die.

“There are still generations of people, older people, who were born and bred and marinated in it, in that prejudice and racism, and they just have to die,” she said.

I long for an America that stops making people who hate it fabulously wealthy.
