NBC made itself an easy target for supporters of President Trump on Sunday night when it crowned Oprah Winfrey "OUR future president." The tweet came in response to a joke by Golden Globes host Seth Meyers, who said: "In 2011, I told some jokes about our current president at the White House Correspondents Dinner. Jokes about how he was unqualified to be president. Some have said that night convinced him to run. So if that's true, I just want to say: Oprah, you will never be president! You do not have what it takes!”

"In case anyone had any doubts about where the media stands, this should take care of it," tweeted Donald Trump Jr. afterwards. "The bias against @realDonaldTrump is now so obvious they have simply given up hiding it."
