Be his political rise as improbable as it may be, it’s making Oprah Winfrey think that maybe she should be the second TV personality, and the first female to be sworn into office and work in the Oval Office. She told David Rubenstein from Bloomberg that before Trump she believed she was unqualified but now it’s a different story; ‘I actually never thought that that was – I never considered the question, even a possibility,’ she said.

It was only after he beat former first lady Hillary Clinton who’s been a longtime politician that she seemingly believed in the impossible. Winfrey has stated that she isn’t actually considering running for president she made that very clear saying; ‘That won’t be happening.’ Matt Drudge of the Drudge Report has expressed that he wishes she would. He tweeted the following; ‘Trump vs Oprah would be the most epic race in American history,’ Drudge wrote, linking to this article.

‘MAKE THIS HAPPEN…’ If Oprah were to run her it would be interesting to see, she’s universally known, she’d most likely have nationwide support in her campaign.  Oprah’s accomplished so many things in her life, film, TV, her OWN TV network, and her greatest accomplishment in her eyes, her school in Africa. ‘I remember when I started the school, I said to my beloved friend Maya Angelou. Maya, I’m so, I’m just so proud that I was going to be able to create this school. This is going to be my greatest legacy and Maya said to me, “You have no idea. You have no idea what your legacy will be … because your legacy is every life you’ve touched”.

During the 2016 Presidential race, Winfrey supported Hillary Clinton and before that endorsed Obama. Long ago Winfrey even interviewed Trump and asked him this; ‘Probably not, but added that if he ever took the plunge, ‘I would have a hell of a chance of winning.’
