Oprah Winfrey graced Trevor Noah’s Daily Show in April but bits and pieces of the show have been making the rounds on social media.

The media mogul and billionaire took some time off her busy schedule to join Trevor and talk about almost everything from the top of their heads including how she enjoys meeting new faces every day, feels rewarded for the impact she is told she has had on people’s lives and confessing how she misseses her show and interactions with people.
