All Those Liberals Begging Oprah to Run for President Just Got TERRIBLE News

By

Oprah Winfrey for president is the talk of the town following the long-time daytime television host’s speech at the Golden Globes.

While her speech sounded very much like a political rally, Oprah remained diplomatic and did not directly attack Trump, even while taking the mainstream media’s side in its grueling feud with the president.

Oprah spent the bulk of her time on stage addressing sexual harassment of women. Months ago, liberals were trying to pin that one, too, on Trump. But that was before everyone was forced to acknowledge that the most monstrous sexual predators in the country are in Hollywood.

Her speech was solid, and certainly inspired that particular audience, so much so that everyone’s now clamoring for Oprah to challenge Trump in the 2020 presidential election.


On paper, Oprah would seem the perfect candidate for Democrats to pit against Trump. She’s wildly popular, even with Republicans; she’s well-spoken; and she’s got star-power, which is what’s probably needed to unseat a fellow celebrity.

But it’s not that simple, and those calling for Oprah to run are likely to be sorely disappointed.

While Oprah has vaguely teased the notion several times, on other recent occasions she has outright rejected the idea of running for president.

“I will never run for public office. That’s a pretty definitive thing,” Winfrey told the Hollywood Reporter just last June.

But the interviewer pressed anyway, demanding to know of Oprah whether or not she could beat Trump in 2020. Her response:

“I don’t know. I don’t know the answer to that. But I’ll never have to know the answer to that, because I will never run for public office.”

Still, people change their minds. And, let’s admit it, all of us would love to see Trump vs. Oprah in 2020. No doubt it would be a fun and wild ride.

But even black commentators are saying that Oprah wouldn’t make a good president:


As “The New Black Conservative” noted, Oprah is far more interested in the imagery of what she’s doing, than in actually doing good, especially for America.

Case in point, Oprah ignored dilapidated schools in her own hometown of Chicago, while pouring money into poor schools in South Africa, because that played much better on television.

In other words, she’s all celebrity. Trump might also be a celebrity, but he’s a businessman first, and he runs the country like a corporate president, not a Hollywood star.
