In other Oprah news -- that is, Oprah dish not having to do with Tuesday's Michigan Avenue mob -- the queen of daytime talk is weighing in on the "controversy" surrounding President Obama's Tuesday speech to the nation's schoolchildren.
In an interview with "Access Hollywood," set to air Wednesday, Oprah says she's "stunned" by the backlash to the president's speech.
When asked if she unerstands the concerns of people who opposed him speaking directly to America's schools, she says, "No, I do not. No, no, no, no and no. I'm just really stunned by people who feel that the President, the leader of our country and of the free world, saying to your children it's important for your success, the success of your families and our country for you stay in school, that education is vital to your well-being... I don't understand it. I do not understand it."
Some children in some schools were not permitted to watch the speech. Oprah reacts: "I think those children missed out and I think that's the message we're trying to send. If you're a country that doesn't want your children to hear that message, then who are we really? That's what I think."
