Most Americans 'don't want' Oprah to run for president

Oprah Winfrey's longtime partner Stedman Graham misheard a reporter who asked him Sunday about a potential Winfrey White House bid according to best buddy Gayle King

So, should Winfrey run for office and if you think she should, what should be her platform? "Oprah would be a lot of fun". "I think everyone who covers campaigns for a living is in a little bit of sort of an uneasy territory in that you're not sure if Trump is the new normal in terms of, 'That's the profile of a person that wins, '" Cillizza said.

Naturally, Twitter had quite a bit to say about Trump's confident stance.

If Oprah Winfrey decides to challenge President Donald in the 2020 USA general election, she'll have the full-throated support of arguably Hollywod's most powerful director behind her. "Both President Obama and President Trump won in part by being perceived as non-typical candidates who could change politics", he told Politico.

Aboard Air Force One, Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley said: "We welcome the challenger, whether it be Oprah Winfrey or anybody else".

It comes after Winfrey's longterm partner Stedman Graham revealed that she would "absolutely" run for president.

Thomas Fire, once largest in California history, is now 100% contained
The mandatory evacuation zone in Montecito has expanded three days after a devastating mud slide that killed at least 17 people . The fire remains under investigation, but not before destroying more than 1,000 structures and damaging 280 structures.

In her speech on Sunday, Ms Winfrey paid tribute to women who have spoken out about the sexual abuse they have suffered. "I'd much rather go for someone like Oprah Winfrey than a career politician.[I'd] like the next president to be a president of the people". "I think it is something that Oprah would have to feel and sense for herself. I thought they'd be talking about it because I knew it was going to be good".

However, if Winfrey does decide to run for president, she already has a wealth of people willing to help her with her campaign. But King added on Tuesday that she didn't think Winfrey was "actually considering" a political bid.

Winfrey addressed the Weinstein sex scandal on her Facebook account late past year, writing: "I've been processing the accounts of Harvey Weinstein's disgusting behavior (sic) and haven't been able to find the words to articulate the magnitude of the situation". For those reasons, she thanked Winfrey and duly congratulated her for receiving the Golden Globes Lifetime Achievement Award. His ex-wife Heidi Klum spoke out against Weinstein in October, but did not say that she was harassed by him.

While many have come out to support her potential run for president, it has begged the question of many: does she have the necessary skills to be president?
