Oprah Winfrey is making headlines as she embarks on her new speaking tour called “Oprah’s 2020 Vision: Your Life in Focus.” Joining the talk show queen on stage are Michelle Obama, Chuck Schumer’s niece Amy Schumer, and Saturday Night Live’s Tina Fey. So when Oprah fell on stage while talking about “balance” and touting her Trump-hating message, people are saying it’s karma. Don’t miss this.
Oprah Winfrey, who has campaigned for candidates like Barack Obama and Stacey Abrams, fell onstage during a Los Angeles stop on her “Oprah’s 2020 Vision: Your Life in Focus” tour while, ironically, offering a brief explainer on “balance.”
“Here’s my definition of what wellness means to me,” the philanthropist told her audience as she began walking across the Forum arena stage.
“Wellness to me means all things in balance. And balance doesn’t mean all things are equal or at peace at all times,” Oprah Winfrey said, continuing to speak about balance, which led up to her ill-timed tumble.
However, Winfrey brushed off her fall with a dose of levity, shouting “wrong shoes!” to the crowd. According to Page Six, the actress walked around barefoot before changing into a different pair of shoes and engaging in a bit of self-deprecating humor.
“Thank you so much,” she told the audience. “It’s nice to be talking about balance and fall.”
On February 9, Michelle Obama was on stage with Winfrey when she recalled a time when her husband was president. The leftwing audience erupted in applause.
“Don’t we wish. Don’t we wish,” Winfrey declared, referring to she wished Obama was president, instead of Donald Trump.
“Just vote y’all, that’s all I’m saying,” Obama continued. “Just vote.”
The conversation turned slightly political, again, when Winfrey asked Obama what the next chapter of her life would entail.
“President,” some audience members yelled. Others screamed, “White House!”
Obama, 56, said she didn’t want to get political during the chat but that she wants to spend her career empowering young people, calling them the “next generation of leaders.”
“To help them understand a broader sense of values that they can operate within because I do think that we are short on that right now, that are leaders are not paving a good path for what we want our kids to be,” she said. “I’m sorry to say that. I don’t want to make this political in any way.”
Yeah, right. Michelle and Oprah wouldn’t dare make it political.
Well, Americans are calling Oprah’s fall “karma,” especially since she is advocating an anti-Trump message.
“ALL HER GUESTS ARE SERIOUS TRUMP HATERS!” tweeted Deborah Green.

“See falling on her head still didn’t jar sense into her. She landed right on the side of her face,” tweeted American Patriot.

“I’m no fan of Oprah or her politics or philosophy, but I am very glad she isn’t hurt from her fall. Just wish the libs would find a heart and stop wishing ill on every conservative,” tweeted “Shining Light.”

The Democrats are begging Oprah to moderate one of their debates.
The veteran talk show host and billionaire entrepreneur said that despite repeated requests for her to host a Democratic debate, she has zero interest in returning to television in such a format.
“I didn’t want to do that,” Winfrey said. “When I’m watching the debates, I’m, like, so happy I’m not in any of it.”
Back in 2019, pinned atop Donald Trump Jr’s Twitter page was a video he’s “very proud” of showing Winfrey pressing his father on whether he’d run for president in 1988. But now it was Winfrey being prodded once again over whether she’d ever considered entering the political arena.
Oprah loved Trump until his politics turned “conservative.”
“You know, Oprah used to be a very good friend of mine. She used to go to Mar-a-Lago,” President Trump said in 2019.
Trump told supporters Winfrey was a frequent guest at his Florida golf course and enjoyed the food there.
“She loved the key lime pie,” he said to laughter. “No. So do I.”
Trump and his family appeared on Winfrey’s talk show in 2011, before their apparent friendship soured when his politics took a turn to the right.
Like her good buddies, Barack and Michelle Obama, Oprah isn’t backing anyone in the primaries. However, once they have their candidate, you bet Oprah will be actively campaigning and pouring money into races to oust GOP congressmen. Well, let her give it a good try. That didn’t work out so well for her in 2016.
