Oprah Confirms She Has No Interest In Running For President: “Not In My DNA”

Just a few months ago, liberals were going crazy about the idea of Oprah Winfrey running for president in 2020. But she is pouring cold water on that idea. She has no interest in running.

Oprah on 2020: ‘It’s Not in My DNA’

In an upcoming interview, Oprah Winfrey is expected to drive home the point that she has no intention of running for president in 2020, despite her well-received speech at the 2018 Golden Globes fueling speculation that she might.

The billionaire media mogul sat down with CBS’s “60 Minutes Overtime” to make it clear she will not be running for president in 2020, but she emphasized that she would definitely not be sitting on the sideline, CBS reported.

“I am actually humbled by the fact that people think that I could be a leader of the free world, but it’s just not in my spirit,” she told correspondent Ann Silvio in the interview airing Sunday. “It’s not in my DNA.”

Winfrey became the first black woman to receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement last month at the Golden Globes. During her acceptance speech, Winfrey delivered a powerful condemnation of sexual harassment and praised the #MeToo movement. The speech prompted the crowd to give her three ovations and drove many on the left to call for her to run in 2020.

Sorry, Democrats. You’re going to have to find another candidate.
