Oprah Says She Would Run for President, Under One Condition

Feb 28, 2018  •  Post A Comment

Oprah Winfrey says there’s one thing that would convince her to run for president in 2020. Winfrey told People magazine in an interview for the new cover story that if God tells her to run, she will.

People quotes Winfrey saying: “I went into prayer. ‘God, if you think I’m supposed to run, you gotta tell me, and it has to be so clear that not even I can miss it.’ And I haven’t gotten that.”

The article notes that Winfrey “found herself in the political spotlight after her inspiring speech at the 2018 Golden Globes while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award. Winfrey had the crowd of Hollywood’s biggest stars on their feet and in tears with her moving words and promise that ‘a new day is dawning.’ She was surprised to hear the immediate response the rest of the country had.”

Reflecting on her Golden Globes speech, she told People: “When I walked off with Reese [Witherspoon], I thought, ‘I got that done. It wasn’t until I was back in the press room that they said, ‘Do you realize you’re trending?’”

  1. She would not win as she is polarizing to most men and white women.

  2. much better that El Trumpo …
    our modern day Genghis Con Job

  3. She wouldn’t win the votes of misogynists or racists…but she would beat Trump by a landslide. However, she is really much too good for politics as it is a filthy profession.

  4. Ummm… just because she speaks well, doesn’t make her qualified to be POTUS. Honestly, she has NO experience at running a government… she slaps her name on a magazine and on a cable channel – but does NOT run them… others do. TRUMP, however, is a wildly smart & sharp deal maker and negotiator – there is a reason why 64% of his agenda has already been done and he is only one year in on his first term. If Oprah ran she would cry at the fact that half of the country would hate her. She loves being loved. She couldn’t handle it.

  5. Oprah has way to many ghosts in her closet. She would not enjoy having all the hateful statements she has made in the past brought back to light. I don;t think her skin is thick enough to be a politician.

  6. It is nice for Oprah’s ego to have this conversation for a year or so. But TV Person is correct that her entire life and businesses will be torn appart and her life will be open to all criticism and speculation possible. She has no idea how cutthroat all of her Democratic “friends” will be in the primaries. There are at least a dozen democrats already fundraising and planning their run for the Dem’s nomination. And that doesn’t even account for what phony stuff the Russians will put on the social networks.

  7. Misogynist? Sorry that you are so judgmental with your safe zones and bathrooms. I’ll vote for President Trump…again.

  8. She’s more qualified than the current occupant of the White House. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean that she is qualified — since one dreadful celebrity president is enough, I’ll just hope God tells her not to run.
