Oprah Winfrey has taken on a more optimistic point of view now that Donald Trump is set to take over the White House from President Obama — and people aren’t too happy with her.
On Thursday, Oprah saw Trump’s meeting with Obama, and decided that things aren’t so bad after all.

She tweeted a picture of the meeting with the message, “Everybody take a deep breath! #HopeLives!”
Oprah later elaborated on her message in an interview with the Associated Press, saying:
“I could sense, maybe I’m wrong, but I could sense from Donald Trump’s body language even when he came out for the acceptance speech, that brother has been humbled by this world thing,” she said. “I think it’s a humbling process that now you literally have the weight of the world on your shoulders.”
While it’s great that Mama O is staying positive — people on Twitter aren’t here for it.
