CNN’s Nischelle Turner sat down one-on-one with Oprah Winfrey who opened up about her return to acting after 15 years, race, OWN, and 'Twitter Thugs.'
In the new Lee Daniels film "The Butler," Oprah stars as Gloria Gaines, the butler’s wife. She reveals to CNN’s Turner why she wanted to be a part of the film.
“This was an opportunity, I thought, to let the world feel the heart of the butler – the heart of this period – that really was a defining period in the lives of many people, but also our nation.”
When asked if she feels like she experiences racism today, she responds, “I experience racism through people’s expectations… and I use it to my advantage.”
He says he is open to immigration reform achieved through smaller bills, which House Republicans favor. He also expresses that Egypt’s transition was not a military coup, the United States is seriously looking at not having bilateral talks with Russia, Snowden is a “coward” and al Qaeda has been decimated by the drone attacks.
On immigration reform, Senator Schumer says, “We would much prefer a big comprehensive bill, but anyway that the House can get there is okay by us.”
“Democracy is a complicated thing. If 51% of the people vote to take away all the rights of the 49% of the people, that’s not democracy…. I don’t have much faith in Morsy,” Senator Schumer says about Egypt. “I would not be precipitous and pull the aid.”
On Russia relations, he adds, “Putin doesn't deserve the respect after what he’s done with Snowden. He goes out of his way to stick the knife into the United States.”
