In the days since Oprah’s speech at the Golden Globe awards show, the left has been going crazy. Democrats in Hollywood and media have been insisting that Oprah is going to run for president in 2020 and defeat Trump. There’s no guarantee that she could beat Trump if she ran. And now it looks like she isn’t running anyway.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Oprah Winfrey has no intention of running for president in 2020: Report
Oprah Winfrey has tamped down speculation she is considering a bid for the White House in 2020, according to a report.
“It’s not happening. She has no intention of running,” a source told NBC Monday.
Anticipation concerning Winfrey’s political ambitions ran rife Sunday night after the media maven delivered a fiery address about sexual harassment and racial injustice at the 75th Golden Globe Awards.
Winfrey’s longtime partner Stedman Graham further fueled speculation Sunday when he told the Los Angeles Times she would “absolutely” run for president, but “it’s up to the people.”
Why would Oprah even want to run? She would take a massive pay cut and would have to campaign like crazy for months. She seems pretty happy with her life the way it is and who can blame her?
