Celebrity president? Been there, done that

How does Oprah Winfrey stack up against Donald Trump?

Talk of Oprah Winfrey running for president should stop before it becomes a thing (“#oprah2020,” Jan. 8).

We've already tried a celebrity president who has no political experience, no concept of the knowledge and expertise it takes to run a government as complex as ours. In 2020, we will need an especially skilled chief executive because he or she will have an enormous mess to clean up.

Oprah Winfrey is extremely intelligent. She is well-known and well-liked. But she has no more actual political experience than I do. That makes her unqualified for the office of president.

We Americans like to think that any child can grow up to be president. That does not mean than just any child should.
