Trump: "Yeah, I'll Beat Oprah."

Donald Trump In Atlantic City

Imagine for a moment we’re deep into the 2020 presidential race. It’s been a long, grueling battle to get to this point. The GOP nominee, President Trump, has clawed his way through Republican challengers, emerging bruised and muddy, just as he likes to be. The Democratic nominee, Oprah Winfrey, defeated an army of contenders each painting themselves as the exact opposite of Donald Trump. The two now meet for the first time since the elongated campaign began, on a debate stage before hundreds of millions of people, and Trump is finishing a jumbled yet humorous rant.

Oprah looks at Trump, smirks as he finishes speaking, and responds, “I have more money than you, you little bitch.”

Trump short-circuits live on stage, turns from orange to dark orange to even darker orange to red, and his brain explodes like one of those pumpkins in internet videos self-proclaimed badasses post on YouTube.

Trump, 71, is worth $2.9 billion, according to the same index — hurt by a drop in the value of three office properties in Manhattan.

This just may be the one campaign strategy Trump cannot overcome. Run somebody richer than he is.
