Oprah Squashes Presidential Rumours
It’s not going to happen, people. After Oprah gave an AMAZING speech at the Golden Globes, celebs and ordinary people alike can’t stop talking about the possibility that she might run for the President of the United States.
But the 60 Minutes correspondent put the rumors to rest in an interview with 60 Minutes Overtime correspondent Ann Silvio. Winfrey said: “I am actually humbled by the fact that people think that I could be a leader of the free world, but it’s just not in my spirit.”
“I was just trying to give a good speech,” she says of her GG moment. “I was looking for a way to express what was going on in this moment in terms of gender and class and race. I cared about landing that speech in the room.”After the speech, she said “wealthy men” started calling her, asking to run her campaign and “raise $1 billion” for it. But she said she just didn’t feel the call to run.”And wouldn’t I know? Because if God actually wanted me to run, wouldn’t God kinda tell me? And I haven’t heard that,” she said.
