Is Oprah Running for President?

Nope! Our dreams of a White House ran by Oprah Winfrey are crushed yet again. The entertainment mogul addressed the circulating rumors on her podcast, SuperSoul Sunday where she denied any intentions of running for president in 2020.

The rumors began after Oprah’s captivating speech at the Golden Globes where she courageously spoke out against the sexual assault occurring in the entertainment industry.

While someone as inspirational and influential as Oprah could very well be one of America’s greatest presidents, she maintains that she does not feel confident in upholding the position. “I’ve always felt very secure and confident with myself in knowing what I could do and what I could not. And so it’s not something that interests me,” she said in an interview with InStyle magazine for their March issue.

The podcast was taped live on Wednesday at the Apollo Theater in New York City. It will air on OWN on February 27th at 10 p.m.
