If it was Oprah Winfrey instead of Hilary Clinton, do you think things would have been different? It looks like our dear Oprah may be running for President.
During a very recent interview with Bloomberg Media’s David Rubenstein, the legendary woman said she never considered running for office because she doesn’t have the experience, but she has been given reasons to start having second thoughts after Donald Trump emerged winner of the 2015 presidential election.
“I thought, ‘Oh gee I don’t have the experience,” said Winfrey. “I don’t know enough. And now I’m thinking, ‘Oh? Oh!’”
Oprah who supported Hilary Clinton but didn’t campaign for her was actively involved in the past President’s elections from start to finish.According to a Columbia University study that showed that the media mogul’s endorsement of Obama increased his chances of winning ‘significantly’. When he won, Oprah was pictured, holding back tears at his inauguration.
“The reason why I haven’t been vocal other than saying, ‘I’m with her,’ is because I didn’t know what I could say that could actually pierce through all the noise, and the chaos, and the disgusting vitriol that is going on, and actually be heard,” she said in October.
Oprah branded President Trump a ‘demagogue’ over controversial policies, like the executive order he issued in January, which many interpreted as a #MuslimBan;
The media mogul’s interest in becoming president has been pricked and who knows what might happen in the nearest future.
