The President Asked Oprah to Help Him Promote Obamacare ‘But She Refused Because She Feels Burned by the White House’

Photo Credit: AFP/Getty Oprah Winfrey has been notably distancing herself from President Obama and First Lady Michelle and apparently her latest slight came against Obamacare.

The media icon was asked to attend a meeting at the White House along with other celebrities to see how they could help create some positive publicity for the Affordable Care Act.

Rather than jumping on board like Alicia Keys and Jennifer Hudson, Oprah reportedly quickly said that she would not be attending the meeting.

‘All of Oprah’s top people thought she would go, because when the president invites you to the White House, most people automatically say yes, but Oprah said she didn’t have the time or inclination to go. It wasn’t like she had to think it over. It was an immediate, flat-out, unequivocal no,’ an Oprah advisor told journalist Ed Klein.

Klein wrote a book, The Amateur, about President Obama’s first term in office and is currently working on a second.

    Oprah is just like all the other phony Hollywood and TV land
    ego maniacs. They think everyone should bow and kiss their ass. They think because the play some dam role of TV or in the movies, and they win according to the script, that they know the answer to and will win in everything. Hell most of them cannot even run their own lives, let alone tell everyone how to run theirs. Most of today’s stars are a bunch of girlie men and cowards. The stars of yesterday joined the military,
    and worked to make this country better. Today’s bunch of ego ass holes are only interested in making more money for themselves, putting on a show by telling you how bad a charity needs money, yet they won’t give a dime. I have no use for this type of actor.

    Oprah has taken several hits for phonies she has promoted on her show. She is probably realizing that her biggest f*ckup is her support of the phony she helped get elected. She could save herself if she would come out with the truth about him to her following.

    Oprah is now staying away because she knows Obama’s ratings have dropped, and surely she doesn’t want hers to drop although I believe they are dropping. I liked her shows early on, but after some time her guests were not to my liking. Also I just about want to throw up about her continuing diets. She has had her day, now she needs to go away and live well off of her millions and millions of dollars.

    • Glenn Makin

      her TV channel business is bankrupt as she suddenly lost revenue from bad ratings and it started coming apart after she help the SOB get elected the first time.

  • reggiec

    The useful idiots are beginning to see the pattern of Obama throwing people under the bus when it is to his advantage. Just like people avoid a mad dog that bites.

  • midas360

    She’s no dummy. She knows exactly what is happening.

  • Glenn Makin

    Oprah is not innocent, she helped him get elected and then got the shaft from the dictator. She cannot get back in Conservatives good graces, she is an idiot bitch
