Media mogul Oprah Winfrey has lent her considerable influence to presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
But the only reason she gave was the fact that they share the same anatomy.
“I’m with her,” the former talk show host told Entertainment Tonight at the premiere of her OWN Network’s “Greenleaf.”
“Regardless of your politics, it’s a seminal moment for women,” she said. “What this says is, there is no ceiling, that ceiling just went boom! It says anything is possible when you can be leader of the free world.”
“I really believe that is going to happen,” Winfrey, 62, said of the country electing it’s first female president. “It’s about time that we make that decision.”
The only other time Winfrey endorsed a presidential candidate was when she supported President Obama against Clinton in the 2008 Democrat presidential primary.
Social media lashed out at Winfrey for her pathetic reason.

Oprah says vote for Hillary-because it’s time for a woman president. Millions voted for Obama-because he’s black. How’d that work out for ya

@Oprah it’s important to elect the right woman for the job not just any woman for the job. How about someone with some real accomplishments

Even some of the women on ABC’s “The View,” a typical left leaning show, thought her reason for supporting Clinton was ridiculous.
