The mainstream media’s non-stop obsession with a possible Oprah-Trump match-up in 2020 was on full display Thursday; with CBS News openly begging the television superstar to run against the President because she can help “heal and connect all people.”
Winfrey was speaking with CBS ‘This Morning’ to promote her upcoming young-adult movie ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ when she was asked if she was considering a bid for the White House.
“Nobody should be convinced to run for the Presidency,” said co-host Gayle King. “But I also think you have a very unique ability in terms of healing and connecting all people.”
“I have great compassion for people, but I think you need more than compassion to be President of the United States,” said Winfrey.
The morning anchor went on to quote the late poet Maya Angelou in her attempt to draft Oprah into the race; asking her “What do you think Maya would say? It’s one of these times I wish Maya was here.”
