'Sanctimonious': Oprah is 'part of the problem,' ignored Weinstein misconduct, says Seal

Pop star calls out Oprah She’s been ‘part of the problem for decades

If Seal wanted to make a comment on the hypocritical nature of Hollywood, he could have easily used one of many photos of his ex-wife Heidi Klum posing with Project Runway producer Weinstein, but he didn't.

People who were merely governors and senators, who had never really performed on a big stage or truly mastered the media (they were just politicians, after all), stood at a distinct disadvantage.

"Oh I forgot, that's right... you'd heard the rumours but you had no idea he was actually serially assaulting young stary-eyed (sic) actresses who in turn had no idea what they were getting into".

Buzzfeed titled their story as "Seal Mocked Oprah Running For President By Linking Her To Harvey Weinstein". While rumored unnamed sources close to the A Wrinkle In Time star claim she is strongly considering a 2020 run, Oprah's lifetime partner, Stedman Graham, has all but confirmed that she is open to the possibility.

In her powerful speech, Oprah spoke about press freedom, racism and sexual abuse before receiving a standing ovation with her closing words about the future.

"She loves this country and would like to be of service in some way, but I don't think she's actively considering it at this time", King said, noting that she had spoken to Winfrey at length the night before. "I think everyone who covers campaigns for a living is in a little bit of sort of an uneasy territory in that you're not sure if Trump is the new normal in terms of, 'That's the profile of a person that wins, '" Cillizza said. With the reality show now playing out on Capitol Hill, a former daytime TV correspondent making a serious run at the Oval Office doesn't seem so far-fetched.

The Jewish director, in London to promote his latest movie, "The Post", praised the queen of the talk show, saying her empathy was just what the United States needed.

It comes after Oprah's longterm partner Stedman Graham revealed that she would "absolutely" run for president. Referencing Jordan Peele's Golden Globe-nominated Get Out, he added, "You live in the Sunken Place". "My bad", he snapped, adding a meme featuring Oprah and Harvey at events together.

He said he has "an enormous amount of respect for everything that Oprah has achieved and contributed in her life" and slammed those who called his repost "a brother tearing down a sister issue". I tried many, many times to explain what a moment like that means to a little girl, a kid watching from the cheap seats as my mom came through the door bone exhausted from cleaning other people's houses.

Juanita Broaddrick, a now 75-year-old who has said for decades that former president Bill Clinton raped her in 1978 also went on Twitter to blast Winfrey and her hypocrisy, the Washington Times reports.
