Could Trump pave the way for ... President Oprah?

A talk show hostess makes as much sense or more than a reality show actor or a B movie actor.
Could Trump pave the way for ... President Oprah?


For years, Oprah Winfrey, the beloved matriarch of afternoon talk shows, has denied any possibility of a White House run.

But it appears she may not be ruling a presidential bid out entirely.

In an interview taped in December and published Wednesday, Ms. Winfrey implied that the election victory of President Trump had made her rethink whether she would be qualified to run the United States.

"I actually never thought I never considered the question even a possibility," Winfrey told interviewer David Rubenstein on the Season Two premiere of "The David Rubenstein Show: Peer-to-Peer Conversations" on Bloomberg Television. "I thought, 'I don't have the experience, I don't know enough.' Now I'm thinking, 'Oh, oh.' "

When presented with similar questions during other media appearances, Winfrey has dismissed the idea of a presidential run. In January, the media mogul told Stephen Colbert on "The Late Show" that running for president is "not my thing."

...But her reluctance hasn't stopped her many admirers from speculating and voicing support for an #Oprah2020 run on social media.

Even Mr. Trump himself has suggested that the daytime talk show star would be a good fit for the White House. In a 1999 interview with Larry King, Trump said he'd consider Oprah as a running mate if he ran for office a sentiment he repeated after announcing his presidential bid in 2015.

"I like Oprah," Trump told interviewer George Stephanopoulos. "I think Oprah would be great. I'd love to have Oprah. I think we'd win easily, actually." ...

Saw this fake news of the day story on Drudge. Oprah, a bloated Prog.

And money isn't what some believe it is, Hilary had a lot more than Trump, and, well, Hillary lost.

The money just proves that Oprah is a better businessperson than Trump. (Wasn't that a big reason we were supposed to vote for him?)

She started with less (No rich daddy to give her a loan) and is now worth more. She is younger meaning it took her less time to build her fortune and, as far as I know, none of her companies have filed for bankruptcy.
