For weeks now, Liberals have been overjoyed by the idea of Oprah Winfrey running for president in 2020. People in Hollywood were particularly excited. But Oprah recently gave an interview to In Style and said that she has no plans to run.
Here’s an excerpt:
LB: And you speak for so many. How do you feel when people say, “Oprah 2020”?
OW: [Laughs] I actually saw a mug the other day … I thought it was a cute mug. All you need is a mug and some campaign literature and a T-shirt. I’ve always felt very secure and confident with myself in knowing what I could do and what I could not. And so it’s not something that interests me. I don’t have the DNA for it. Gayle—who knows me as well as I know myself practically—has been calling me regularly and texting me things, like a woman in the airport saying, “When’s Oprah going to run?” So Gayle sends me these things, and then she’ll go, “I know, I know, I know! It wouldn’t be good for you—it would be good for everyone else.” I met with someone the other day who said that they would help me with a campaign. That’s not for me.
That sounds pretty clear. She’s not running. Sorry, Liberals.
