Do you remember that epic speech Oprah made a few weeks ago? You know the speech we’re talking about. It was her Golden Globes speech that had social media and news platforms buzzing about the TV queen running for President in 2020. Well sorry to disappoint you, but the media mogul has recently stated in an interview with Instyle magazine, she’s not interested in being the next President.
“It’s not something that interests me…I met with someone the other day who said they would help me with a campaign. That’s not for me,” Winfrey stated.
It didn’t take long for campaign talks to begin after the Oprah for President began circulating. Her speech was so powerful, major networks like NBC even jumped on board tweeting their support for her. They later retracted their statement after receiving backlash from the current administration.
Though NBC retracted their statement, Winfrey’s long-time beau, Stedman Graham stood behind his, showing his support and confidence in her potential to win over the current president.
Winfrey rose to fame as the host of a television talk show. The show ran for over ten years, making her a household name and earning her millions. She has long been associated with Democratic Party politics and fundraising. Like the current president, Winfrey has no prior military or political experience.
However, after buzz of her possible run spread, poll numbers proved the media mogul had the numbers to beat #45 if she decided to run. Maybe, just maybe, in two years she will surprise us all and be on the ballot. Because after Trump, anything is possible.
