Oprah Says the Only Thing That Could Make Her Run for President is God Himself


Ever since Oprah Winfrey made that show-stopping speech at the Golden Globes, people have been speculating that she might (or at least should) run for president. Though Oprah has since stated that she will not run in 2020, she does say there’s one thing that could make her run: God.

“I went into prayer,” she told People in an exclusive interview. “‘God, if you think I’m supposed to run, you gotta tell me, and it has to be so clear that not even I can miss it.’ And I haven’t gotten that.”

In an interview with InStyle following her Golden Globes speech, she said, “I’ve always felt very secure and confident with myself in knowing what I could do and what I could not, and so [the Presidency] is not something that interests me. I don’t have the DNA for it.”

Despite this, Tom Hanks said he’s already practicing for his role as VP if Oprah asks. Winfrey Hanks 2020?

Oprah is starring in Disney’s new movie, “A Wrinkle In Time,” alongside Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling. She also recently talked with Jimmy Kimmel about the Vanity Fair cover cover fiasco where she was given (via photoshop) an extra hand while Reese Witherspoon was given an extra leg.
