Now that @Oprah may be running for President, imagine how the Left would react if this were to occur:

1. A agent of @realDonaldTrump hires #FusionGPS (or another company) to dig up dirt on Ms. Winfrey by contacting her associates in S. Africa (or any other country) #Oprah2020 /1
2. #FusionGPS (or whatever company doing the investigation) trumps up (pun intended) a #FakeDossier that ties #Oprah and HARPO to organized crime in Johannesburg, as well as to leaders in the South African government. #Oprah2020 /2
3. The agent of @realDonaldTrump takes this #FakeDossier to the FBI and says to Dir. Wray, “Unsavory agents of the South African government are trying to turn @Oprah into one of their agents.” So Wray asks for a FISA court to authorize the FBI to surveil #Oprah. #Oprah2020 /3
4. About the same time this happens, @realDonaldTrump issues a directive that allows just about anyone who is loyal to him in the government to access the information gathered by the surveillance of @Oprah and #Oprah2020. /4
5. @nikkihaley gets access to this information and unmasks @Oprah and her aides, citing some trumped up (pun intended again) national security concern. She then leaks the #Dossier and the surveillance reports with the unmasked names to @foxandfriends #Oprah2020 /5.
6. Now the biggest pro-@realDonaldTrump news outlet in the world has access to private phone calls from a major presidential candidate to and from just about anybody referenced in the FISA warrant — and perhaps everyone else as well. #Oprah2020 /6
Now if this were to happen to @Oprah how would the Left react to @realDonaldTrump and his administration spying on her? #Oprah2020 /7
Essentially this is what happened in 2016 to @realDonaldTrump. So if turnabout is fair play, why shouldn’t he do the same thing?

Answer: He shouldn’t because it would be a gross abuse of power. But that didn’t stop the Democrats in 2016. /end

Liberals are so blinded by their own hatred that they do not see how @realDonaldTrump is playing them like a Stradivarius. #stablegenius /1
First, @realDonaldTrump understands that when he tweets the most outrageous thing to 46.1 million Twitter followers, his enemies will repeat it over and over again in their #ResistTrump echo chamber /2
The press, in turn, must report it as written since it is “YUGE” news. When they do, journos — shocked by the President’s comments—invariably reveal any biases (liberal or conservative or neutral) that they otherwise might have been disinclined to reveal. /3
