To give you an idea of just how divided the nation has been in the wake of Donald Trump's election as the 45th president of the United States, people are now turning on Oprah.
It all started on Thursday, Nov. 10, when a subdued President-elect Donald Trump visited President Barack Obama in the White House. After seeing the brief (awkward) photo-op, celebrity goddess Oprah Winfrey tweeted her thoughts, which included calls for patience and hope.
To drive the point home, Oprah, who endorsed Hillary in the race, went back to the well during an appearance on Entertainment Tonight: "It gave me hope... to hear President-Elect Trump say he had respect for President Obama, it felt he had reached a moment where he was actually humbled by that experience ... I think everybody can take a deep breath."
But many were not ready to take a deep breath. Both celebs and normies alike took umbrage with Oprah's comments.
