After Oprah Winfrey’s speech Sunday night at the Golden Globe Awards in Hollywood, some people are saying that she should run against Donald Trump for President in 2020. Oprah has had a love-hate relationship with the Texas Panhandle.  Texas Cattlemen sued Oprah over comments she made about beef being contaminated with “Mad Cow” disease. The trial took place in February of 1998. She even did her show from the Amarillo Little Theater while the trial was underway. Oprah was in Amarillo for about six weeks. She was even seen jogging in northwest Amarillo. Some local residents who were oblivious to the trial and financial implications of her comments were probably “star struck” with her presence in our city. While some in agriculture related business may have lost money over her comments. The jury ultimately ruled in Ms. Winfrey’s favor.
