Baba Vanga, who’s known to her followers as the ‘Nostradamus of the Balkans’, has claimed Obama is the last President of the United States of America.

I was going to post a picture of Oprah in my thread about the future and ask if she's going to be the first Buddhist president of the US. kidding, of course.

I'm sure hearing Trump's henchmen calling him a genius for "revolutionizing reality tv" has to have gotten her ire up.

The secretary of state will be a golden retriever named Barkley. And he'll do a better job than the last several humans in that position.

Oh snap, did I just make an unintentional nod to Charles Barkley as the next SOS? I think I did! :)

Trump Warns That President Oprah Would Force Americans to Read.

“People were worried about Obama coming to their homes and taking away their guns,” Trump said. “Oprah will come to your homes and leave books there, which is far, far worse.”

OK, satire, but still... :smile:

It's the Democratic party's standard operating procedure to tear itself apart in a frenzy of ideological posturing whenever an election approaches. So yes, she probably will.

Reagan pulled it off, so why not Oprah?

I don't think the current head of the Catholic Church is eligible to be president, given that they are already a head of state.

Poprah will have to wait until she finishes her functions there.
世尊在靈山會上拈華示眾眾皆默然唯迦葉破顏微笑世尊云
The Lord dwelt at the Vulture Peak with the assembly and plucked a flower as a teaching. The myriad totality were silent, save for Kāśyapa, whose face cracked in a faint smile. The Lord spoke.
吾有正法眼藏涅槃妙心實相無相微妙法門不立文字教外別傳付囑摩訶迦葉。
I have the treasure of the true dharma eye, I have nirvāṇa as wondrous citta, I know signless dharmatā, the subtle dharma-gate, which is not standing on written word, which is external to scriptures, which is a special dispensation, which is entrusted to Mahākāśyapa.
