Oprah Done Started Something! Will She Be RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT? Hmmm…

Posted On : March 1, 2017

ILOSM family, people are rejoicing after seeing Oprah Winfrey’s recent interview on the Bloomberg network’s The David Rubenstein Show. Oprah, who once said she’d never consider running for President of the U.S., is now singing a different tune. She’s not quite saying she will, but she definitely is no longer ruling it out. *SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO*

What influenced her change of heart? You guessed it- seeing Trump not only run, but win the oval office with zero political experience.

When Rubenstein asked, “Have you ever thought that—given the popularity you have [and] we still haven’t broken the glass ceiling yet for women—that you could run for president and actually be elected?”

Oprah pondered for a sec’ and then stated “I…” pausing mid-sentence as the audience chuckled, “I actually never considered the question even a possibility. I just thought, ‘Oh!’… ‘Oh, gee, I don’t have the experience, I don’t know enough, I don’t know.'” But after seeing Trump in office she’s at this point: “And now I’m thinking…OH!”

That was all the crowd needed to hear and now they’re hoping Oprah stays in that frame of mind come the 2020 presidential campaign to knock Trump off of his presidential pedestal.


Many say Oprah Winfrey for president, wouldn’t be a bad idea because: She’s not a whimp by far when it comes to business. She has an ability to relate to all people from all walks of life- regardless of race, class, social status, religion, etc.. And lastly, she started from the bottom, now she’s here. Oprah came from a poor family and was raised in Kosciusko, Mississippi. She went from barely having two nickels to rub together…

To building a mega media empire and becoming the first female billionaire in the United States…and she is self-made.

So you never know, helping to push the U.S. toward further progression, is a skill set Oprah may actually have. You never know. What do you think family, should she run or no?
