Oprah Winfrey Rethinking Idea of Presidential Run After Trump's Win
Trump vs. Oprah in 2020?!
It seems far-fetched, but Oprah Winfrey didn't rule out the possibility of a White House run when asked about it in an interview yesterday.
Speaking to David Rubenstein in a Bloomberg interview, Winfrey said President Donald Trump's victory has her reconsidering her long-held belief that she could never run without previous government experience.
Rubenstein pointed out that it's clear from Trump's victory that government experience is no longer a requirement.
"That's what I thought. I thought, 'Oh gee, I don't have the experience. I don't know enough.' And now I'm thinking...Oh!" she responded, drawing applause from the audience.
Social media exploded over the very idea of a Winfrey campaign...
If Orange Man can be president, then Oprah Winfrey can CERTAINLY be President too.

Since we love letting reality tv show host become president, I don't see why queen Oprah can't be president

If @Oprah is weighing a run for President she needs to analyze why he won.
hint: It wasn't being a TV personality
