If you’ve been anywhere near the Internet in the last day in a half, you’ve definitely seen the outpouring of support for Oprah after her tear-inducing speech at the Golden Globes as she accepted the Cecil B. deMille award. The speech earned her a standing ovation and, for some, the possibility for a presidential bid in 2020.
That’s right — the world wants to see a Trump vs. Oprah showdown in the next election cycle.
Oprah for president? She’s got my vote.

If @Oprah ran for president in 2020, she is every person. She has been poor & now rich. She is also a self made Billionaire. She has a grasp of the issues as she used to cover local politics. She can articulate any issue and she has mass appeal beyond race & gender.

Though, unsurprisingly, Trump isn’t having any of it.
Trump just told reporters he could beat Oprah in 2020… per WH pool.

But apparently this whole “Oprah for President” thing was written in the stars, because it was prophesied over a decade ago — by a TV show. That’s right, The Boondocks actually had an episode where Oprah was elected for president on November 8, 2020.

Okay, that’s pretty freaky.
The Boondocks was so ahead of its time man

It’s especially uncanny considering another popular cartoon show, The Simpsons, is also well known for making predictions that come true, such as Trump’s presidency.
Oh snap! They on that Simpson’s time travel vibe!!! Wow!

With The Simpsons predicting Trump as President and Boondocks with Oprah, its official – we are living in a cartoon world.
