Media Mogul Oprah Winfrey delivering arguably one of the most prolific speeches that we’ve heard in a long time at the 2018 Golden Globes, and it had many on their feet, some in tears, and others ready to take action, all while inspiring the next generation of little girls.

The speech resinated with many including those on social media, so much so that the hashtag #Oprah2020 started trending.

I mean…..Oprah for President does have a nice ring to it!

But her bestie Gayle King says that as of now Oprah is not interested in running for President but she is however ‘intrigued’ by the idea.

On Tuesday Morning, The CBS co-anchor stated;

“I absolutely don’t think her position has changed, I don’t,” King, 63, said of Winfrey, who has repeatedly denied a desire to run for office and told CBS This Morning in Oct. 2017, “There will be no running for office of any kind for me.”

“I was up talking to her very late last night. I do think she is intrigued by the idea, I do think that,” King added Tuesday. “I also know that after years of watching The Oprah Winfrey Show, you always have the right to change your mind. I don’t think at this point she’s actually considering it.”
