Michelle Obama lauds Winfrey: Oprah could be country’s ‘common denominator’ (198 hits)


Michelle Obama lauds Winfrey: Oprah could be country’s ‘common denominator’

Michelle Obama is praising her “wonderful friend” Oprah Winfrey, calling the media mogul a unifying figure in hyperpolarized America.

The former first lady penned a tribute to Winfrey as part of Time magazine’s “100 Most Influential People of 2022” issue, released Monday.

“Whether she’s talking to pop stars, presidents, schoolgirls, scholars — or she’s asking you about your life over a glass of wine in the living room — Oprah has always had that uncanny ability to open us up, to hear beyond our words, and to uncover a higher truth, to be vulnerable with us in a way that allows us to be vulnerable back,” Obama wrote of the former talk show host.

“That’s her secret,” Obama said. “But what I love most about Oprah is that she has never been content to keep it for herself.”

“When Oprah connects with something — a person, a book, a song, an idea — she makes sure to shine her light on it. She validates it. She anoints it,” Obama said.
