EXCLUSIVE: Oprah Interviews Frank Luntz Anti-Trump Panel in MI Tonight for “60 Minutes”

By Debbie Schlussel

oprahislam.jpg has exclusively learned that Oprah Winfrey will interview a Frank-Luntz-assembled panel in Michigan for an anti-Trump report she is doing for CBS’ “60 Minutes.” The Michigan panel includes Donald Trump supporters and Republicans who are disappointed in him, and the session will take place this evening.

Yesterday, several media reports noted that Winfrey, the liberal former daytime talk show host, was in Grand Rapids, Michigan to interview Palestinian “Republican” Michigan Congressman Justin Amash (known on this site as Justin HAMAS(h) for his hatred of Israel and vote to keep U.S. money flowing to the Islamic terrorist group HAMAS). He also wants Israel to give HAMAS land so that it can connect Gazastan with the Palestinian Authority and have a full-blown Palestinian State across Israel.

Amash, a Never-Trump politician from Western Michigan is heavily financed by Betsy DeVos, Trump’s Secretary of Education, and her family. Amash is very loudly in favor of impeaching Donald Trump. Amash frequently votes with the left, including his support the continuation of federal funding to Planned Parenthood, NPR (a/k/a National Palestinian Radio), and PBS. Amash also opposed most measures supported by Republicans to detect and stop Islamic terrorists.

Now, can exclusively report that Winfrey is doing a negative report on Trump and will meet with a panel of 25 members of a “focus group” selected by pollster Frank Luntz, once a staunch conservative (and then-boss to Trump adviser and campaign manager Kellyanne Conway) who is now liberal, believes American Muslims are moderates, and supports prosecuting Americans who will not bake a cake for gay weddings. (Luntz declined to respond to my tweets asking if he believed Muslim bakers should be forced to do this.)

Luntz used Facebook to solicit Michigan voters for a focus group. He picked 25 of them for the interview with himself and Winfrey to be conducted tonight from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m., Eastern Time, outdoors at New Vintage Place. Those picked for the event were told they would be filmed for broadcast television on CBS, would be paid $100 for their participation, given food, and asked about their views on Donald Trump and his performance as President. The paricipants were told to dress in business casual attire and wear no hats or logos. Luntz is in Grand Rapids today, to conduct the focus group for and with Winfrey.

Participants were also told that a special VIP guest would show up. Although they were not told who the guest was or which CBS program on which their interview would air, the VIP guest, I’m told, is Oprah Winfrey. And I’m also told that the focus group interview is being conducted by Luntz for Oprah’s “60 Minutes” anti-Trump report which will apparently air on the show’s fall premiere.

In January, Winfrey announced that she was returning to TV news, where she got her start, and would be a “special correspondent” for CBS News’ “60 Minutes.” The report will be Winfrey’s debut on the longtime CBS TV news magazine, but not her first for the network’s news division. She previously did an hour-long softball interview with Michelle Obama, which aired on CBS’ primetime airwaves last year. Winfrey is a well-known friend and supporter of the Obamas and Hillary Clinton, and there is no way her report will be fair to the President.

Michigan is a swing state that narrowly went for Donald Trump and helped put him over the top in the electoral college.

Personally I think Obama would have never made it into the white house if it were not for Oprah. Almost nothing you said here is a big surprise. Personally I am more worried about “J street Jared who was instrumental in ridding Trump of Bannon from the white house scene to his company Britebart which does not mean that Trump is unfriending him. Quite the contrary as he never needed the job, and at Britebart (sp?) he can still remain in contact tweetwise, and Bannon can be be of greater help to Trump from the outside in my opinion.
Note it was J street Jared that discouraged daddy from giving his blessing to move the US embassy to Jerusalem.
And Bannon as noted on Israel Video one stating strongly that the US should move its embassy to Jerusalem which I and you I am sure agree with to show unity and strength which I am sure is being interpreted by Iran, Syria, Putin, etc as weakness and distancing from Israel.
Need to speak to you regarding Ron Boji “google Ron Boji and corruption” He bribes both Republicans and Democrats and I am making a lot of trouble for him. You should hear this. Yes, he is Chaldean. Contact me via e-mail and I will give you my phone. This is nuts what he is pulling. A local attorney Robert Jacobs is involved Maybe you could help somewhat by exposing him.

Frank Luntz should be accorded pariah status for this stunt by Republicans. What Republican candidate or conservative organization would trust his polling results after this?

Wonder why she didn’t interview people who were disappointed in Obama and Holder.

She’s so transparent.

Frank Luntz is a fraud and panderer. Ask any member of the NRA, especially those on the Executive Board, where he doctored the results and was caught! Just like this audience– picked by bias.
As for Oprah, another Hollywierd libtard that lives in their armed secure, gated homes with servants that venture into the real world to shop, etc. They also enploy armed body guards when they have to travel to other secure places. Hypocrits!!!

How can these people actually refer to themselves as journalists? There is nothing fair or impartial about them. All they want to do is destroy Trump.

Journalism is dead.

Thanks for the article Ms. Schlussel, as one commentator here on the forum argued, why didn’t Ms. Winfrey do the same thing between let us say 2009-2016 when Mr. Obama was the president of interviewing Obama voters who were disappointed with him on policy-making sequences?

The answer is total hypocrisy and from my estimation on where I suspect that her big bosses on the “board of directors” didn’t want her to do such thing at the time. And this as well to me is the “White Liberal-Leftists” babying people of my ethnicity, ie, Blacks to conjecture that all of us love and support Obama and all of us have hate Trump, which is a total fabricated lie (and we can thank former US President Lyndon B. Johnson with his so-called “muh Great Society” that totally screwed up the Black family which is yes indeed a white-supremacist dilemma from the ideological left-wing).

I no longer watch television.

There’s too much stuff to do on the Internet, with intellectually challenging puzzles, socially and politically unacceptable news reports which aren’t broadcast by the mainstream mass media, and my own personal efforts to publicize my thoughts in the continuing fight to promote the cause of individual liberty, righteous virtue, and my own religious faith (I’m a Mormon), plus the constant battle of defending and advocating for the endangered rights of white folks, families, males, heterosexuality, Christianity, and all of the other assorted good ol’ fashioned tried and true traditional moral values inherent with our United States of America.

I haven’t watched 60 Minutes in over 20 years.
I used to love the show.
As you get older you start to see how the “news” manipulates you.
They could have also did a focus group on how they are happy with Trump’s performance or how mad they are at the Democrats for opposing Trump’s cabinet picks.
The news isn’t news, it’s just pure propaganda.
But the news has always been that way. We were lied to to get us into WWI. We were lied to to get us into Vietnam, etc.
Nothing has changed.

Thanks Debbie for this information about the Orka. I had thought that she left TV forever but much like certain democrat and republican politicians she loves the spotlight.
Also Frank Duntz is nothing but an alway wrong polster who like everyone else screwed up royally in this past year’s election. It does my heart good that he will continue to be the wrong headed fool with the bad toupee. Speaking of 60 Minutes I haven’t watched that show since both Mike Wallace and Ed Bradley were on in the 90s during the age of the Clinton. Now since it has Norah O’Donnell, Leslie Stahl, Lara Logan, Anderson Cooper and now the Oprah you can definitely count me out.

Frank Luntz was always a mile wide and an inch deep when it came to his “conservatism.” He’s now in his element.

Thank you for the work done. Very interesting interview. I first saw him after seeing the profile of this correspondent. Very diverse personality.
