Oprah Winfrey Responds to Donald Trump calling her Insecure [Video]

Ok, so, finally, Oprah Winfrey has opened up about her reaction to Donald Trump calling her 'insecure' on Twitter.
If you recall, after Oprah openly declared that she does not have the DNA to be President of The United States Of America, Donald Trump tweeted thus;
"Just watched a very insecure Oprah Winfrey, who at one point I knew very well, interview a panel of people on 60 Minutes. The questions were biased and slanted, the facts incorrect. Hope Oprah runs so she can be exposed and defeated just like all of the others!"
In an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Oprah shared her reaction to the president's harsh words.
"I woke up and I just thought … I don't like giving negativity power so I just thought, 'What?!'"
Oprah more specifically disagreed with Trump's claims of bias.
"What I actually really did was I went back and looked at the tape to see if there was any
place that could be true. Did I feel like it was slanted or bias? I went back and I looked at every tape. I called the producer, because what actually happened was when you do 60 Minutes, you sit in a room with at least seven other people who critique the piece before you air it, before you do the introduction to it, and then they give you the critique. They critique every word."
Oprah says that before the segment aired, she worried that one question – "Do you care what other people think about America?" – didn't get  enough of a balanced response, and so took measures to correct.
"They'd only used the Democratic side," she told Ellen.
"I remember the guy, Matt, had said, 'No, we're the only people that are worried about what other countries are thinking of us.' So I said, 'I think you should go back and put that in 'cause it makes it more balanced.' So I was working very hard to do the opposite of what I was hate-tweeted about. So it's okay."
