NBC Deletes Tweet Jokingly Referring to Oprah as the ‘Future President’

NBC has decided to remove a tweet that referred to Oprah Winfrey as “OUR future president.”

In announcing the decision, NBC said, “Yesterday a tweet about the Golden Globes and Oprah Winfrey was sent by a third party agency for NBC Entertainment in real time during the broadcast. It is in reference to a joke made during the monologue and not meant to be a political statement. We have since removed the tweet.”

The tweet in question (which has been deleted) was done during the opening monologue of The Golden Globes, when Seth Meyers jokingly encouraged Winfrey to run for office.

Donald Trump Jr. had expressed his outrage over the tweet, writing last night, “In case anyone had any doubts about where the media stands this should take care of it. The bias against @realDonaldTrump is now so obvious they have simply given up hiding it. Can you trust anything they say at this point?”
