Let’s be clear. I actually kind of like Oprah. Remember when she gave everybody a car? I do… (Oprah Rules) ‘You get a car! You get a car! You get a car!’ That’s the kind of real unfiltered base marxism that my body can get behind! I also remember when Oprah would gain weight and then lose it and then gain it again and then lose it again and make entire shows about inspiring her audience of other ‘in between’ average weight-watching women to shed those pounds and be the best self-made woman they could be! I’ll forget about her weirdo relationship with Stedman… We’re all capable of mistakes. But Oprah as President? Who are you… Donald Trump? (Donald Trump 1999 – Oprah Would Be My VP)
The sudden appearance of Oprah on the national stage as a potential candidate for the DNC illustrates just how desperate and crazy the influential thought makers on the left have become! Their prospective field is so thin that they are willing to go back on their own mocking claims of our President when they suggested that a reality TV show host is below the standard of our presidency. Now, they themselves are pushing forward the most recognizable daytime show host of all time as being amply qualified to run the free world! By the end of her speech at the Golden Globes, CNN was ready to anoint Oprah as President of 2020 while online, images circulated of Oprah and serial sex abuser Harvey Weinstein smiling and laughing in pictures as recent as several years ago. Although the night featured robust speeches regarding the #metoo movement the woman who came out on top as star of the event and potential nominee for presidency as a Democrat could be seen as guilty of turning her back on the open secret of abuse, harassment and sexual force in Hollywood and the larger entertainment industry. The de-intellectualization of the left and their continued hypocritical stance on issues they champion is so bare and so complete to the American public that they can’t find a standing Senator, Congressman or Governor to challenge President Trump. While there have been suggestions that Elizabeth Warren could mount a campaign, anyone with common sense can see she is not ready, especially in this atmosphere, to challenge Donald J Trump and his ‘deplorable’ army. Maybe in 2024 Senator Warren.
Why not? I believe Beyonce, yes that Beyonce, should run for President in 2020 as the Democratic nominee. Even saying her name just brings a ray of sunshine into my life and I imagine so many others. I think she could win. Easily. Shit, I would vote for her and I loathe Democrats. I have watched them bankrupt every good city I know of in the ole states of Virginia, New Mexico and every blue dog cave in between. I don’t trust them but I’d trust Beyonce. She strikes me as normal, common sense person who would probably sign executive orders to stop persecuting non-violent crimes. Right? I can’t imagine her using her big blue Twitter to threaten and attack others either. She might even write us a new song we can all rep together, one nation under Beyonce. Also, as we navigate this new listening zone where women are claiming their voices throughout the country, she could probably teach us all a bit about what it means to be a woman. Much of what we saw in the last election was a carefully constructed image of what the media and their bankrolled, cigar-smoking old boys club thought defined a strong woman. In reality, Hillary Clinton and her platform represented everything about the white male patriarchy that shoulders blame for the mass poverty inflicted on the black community in this country. Donald Trump himself suggested we must drain the swamp and promoting a real, strong, tough, independent woman (Destiny’s Child – Independent Women) like Beyonce is the first step in overturning the power structures that be.
What would Beyonce run on? How about to clean this entire derelict garbage bourgeoisie ethnostate of its collected sordid past? If “Democracy is The God That Failed Us” then give us “A Queen Who Won’t Betray Us!” What would her platform consist of? For starters, she could simply run as “Not Donald Trump!” That’s a good 30% of the country right there. Beyonce could bring a new, viable and substantially different cultural identity to the President as well. The debates would be stunning. She would be our Cleopatra, a modern woman of self-made economic strength that demands the respect and desire of every man, woman, and child on this planet. What’s so bad about that? She could run as an unabashed truth spitting black woman and represent an entire generation of disenfranchised and lied to minorities and maybe, just maybe, we could finally get around to the long heal that is still just beginning to show itself across the spectrum of our society. Oh, and she could win! Because we all love Beyonce and we all love Lemonade (Beyonce – Hold Up)
Aren’t you happy that Bill Clinton wasn’t our first First Man? I know I am! He was an all right enough president other than his cum stains, lies and maniacally quiet bombing campaigns of Bosnia and Iraq. His unethical moral standards rank right up there with the late Richard Nixon. As much as I didn’t want to see a person as corrupt and criminally involved as Hillary Clinton represent our country, I was sick of the entire Clinton family who had left a literal stain on the memory of the Oval Office. Which brings us to back to 2020. You know who I want the first First Man to be? J Motherfuking Z. Jay-Z! Imagine with me for a second the implications of Someone Like Jay-Z and Beyonce living in the White House, the whitest of houses. I will be happy to pay my taxes if it means 50-inch subwoofers blaring Big Pimpin’ (Jay Z – Big Pimpin’) across the White House lawn on the weekends. It could represent the transformative power that this country is so sorely seeking. And there would always be good music bumping across the elitist city of DC harkening back oddly enough to the days of Andrew Jackson.
These days anybody can be president. What makes a good president? Academia has led an assault on the objective nature of what governance and power should look like so who’s to say? There are no imminent threats and there are no great wars left to be fought. There is no land to be had and debt is the new gold. The things that guided us early in our nation are not the same things that guide us now. The wounds of our society are deep and vast but we come together as people in many beautiful ways. Ronald Reagan could appeal to people because he was an actor and entertainer who understood how to explain common decent ideas to the American public. When I think of Beyonce I think she could be totally capable of placing liberty and freedom loving Americans in positions of equity and power. Artist, businesswoman, trendsetter, and future President? We can all dream.
