CNN’s Brian Stelter is more than just a little bit excited about the possibility of Oprah Winfrey challenging President Donald Trump in the 2020 race for the White House; fawning over the prospect in dozens of clips, appearances, and interviews.
The Washington Free Beacon compiled Stelter’s greatest hits into a highlight reel of the network’s senior media correspondent breathlessly covering Winfrey’s highly-publicized acceptance speech at the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards, saying he began calling her closest confidants “the minute she finished that speech.”
“Her speech at the Golden Globes seemed downright presidential,” says Stelter, as the classic Whitney Houston rendition of “I Will Always Love You” blares in the background. “And what a speech it was. In some ways we’ve seen this speech go viral.”
Stelter responded to the hilarious video on social media Wednesday, stating, “An accurate headline would say ‘CNN Is Reporting On The Possibility Of Oprah 2020.’”

FIREWORKS: Kellyanne Conway SHREDS CNN's Brian Stelter Live On-Air
Senior White House advisor Kellyanne Conway unloaded on CNN’s Britan Stelter over the weekend; blasting the cable anchor for refusing to cover President Trump’s record-breaking job growth and impressive stock market gains, instead focusing on phony poll numbers.
Conway was speaking with Stelter on Sunday when the left-leaning anchor asked the advisor over President Trump’s “historically low approval ratings.”
“Given President Trump’s historically low approval ratings, what specific steps are you and your colleagues taking to try and repair Trump’s credibility?”
“So Brian, I think that’s the usual hyperbolic opening to one of CNN’s segments. Let me tell you about the numbers that matter to Americans,” Conway fired back. “The 1.5 million jobs created on his watch, the 54 record highs in the stock market, the consumer confidence at a 17 year high, which means higher than President George W. Bush and Barack Obama.”
“The American people are not giving him credit for the economic boom according to all of the polls,” pressed Stelter.
“Yes, they are. You have the voice going through all of your promos saying, ‘CNN, the most trusted name in news.’ What evidence do you have of that? I’ve seen polling numbers to the contrary on that,” she added. “You interrupted me because I was going through what CNN refuses to cover about President Trump.”

THIS IS CNN: Anchor Says Trump ‘MENTALLY UNFIT’ After North Korea Tweet
CNN host Brian Stelter viciously smeared President Trump on Tuesday, saying the Commander-in-Chief’s tough talk with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un demonstrates he’s “mentally unfit” to hold the office.
Stelter was speaking with colleague Anderson Cooper when he was asked to weigh-in on the President’s response to Kim’s New Year’s Day warning that he has a “nuclear button” on his desk and could strike the US at any moment.
“North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the ‘Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.’ Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!” Trump tweeted.

“If this were the leader of Germany or China or Brazil, what would we say?” asked Stelter. “How would we cover these tweets? We would say these are the messages from a person who is not well, from a leader who is not fit for office.”
