Oprah Shoots Down Rumors Of A 2020 Presidential Run AGAIN
Hollywood seems pretty persistent in getting Oprah Winfrey to consider running for president, but the longtime talk show host isn’t quite going for it. At least, not yet.
Winfrey recently shot down the rumors in an interview with InStyle magazine. However, those comments were made before her rousing speech at the Golden Globes that got all of Hollywood looking forward to 2020. Now, about one month after that speech, Oprah definitively shot down the idea again, People reports.
Winfrey was speaking with “Hamilton” creator Lin Manuel Miranda on her podcast this week when Miranda stated that he is not going into politics. (SLIDESHOW: These Photos Alone Ruined Oprah’s Chances In 2020)
“I’m not either,” Oprah promptly responded.
Last month InStyle magazine released their interview with Winfrey just days after the Golden Globes, leading some to believe it was a response to the 2020 buzz. Still, she pretty much ruled out a potential presidential run with what she said. (RELATED: Oprah’s Golden Globes Speech Has Hollywood’s Eyes Set On 2020)
“I’ve always felt very secure and confident with myself in knowing what I could do and what I could not. And so it’s not something that interests me,” she said. “I don’t have the DNA for it.”
It sounds like something drastic would have to happen in order for Oprah to change her mind. So far it sounds like there’s no chance she runs in 2020.
