JANET STREET-PORTER: Oprah should stand down because if Trump has proven one thing it's that the ability to spout instant opinions and look serious on the TV does not qualify you as a politician (even you, Piers)
Oprah is a billionaire businesswoman who cares about injustice and equality - but don't most of us, writes JANET STREET-PORTER. All TV stars are cossetted by armies of yes-people, primped by make-up artists and flattering lighting, and go on air wearing ear pieces into which clever producers and researchers shout facts and tell them what questions to ask, while they shuffle their papers and look serious. TV teaches you to be mouthy and have instant opinions, to lead from the front, not how to build a team or create agreement. Donald Trump is brilliant at self-promotion and self-belief, but lousy at listening or even reading a piece of paper that's longer than a television briefing note - about 200 words. To arrive at policy-making, you have to explore every option, try to take as many people along with you as possible. In Trump's mind there are only two ways of doing anything - his way and the wrong way.

Before she reveals herself in the epic video, the box twists and turns in the air to reveal a huge 'gotcha' sign on the side.
