As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Oprah Winfrey “Actively Thinking” About Running for President in 2020

According to CNN:

According to two of Winfrey’s close friends who requested anonymity to speak freely, Winfrey is “actively thinking” about running for president in 2020.

Some of Winfrey’s confidants have been privately urging her to run, the sources said.
One of the sources said these conversations date back several months. The person emphasized that Winfrey has not made up her mind about running.

Okay, first of all, what does “actively thinking” mean? As opposed to passively thinking? As in, “Yes, I’ve been passively thinking about that for some time now.”

Whatever. Don’t laugh. I think we’ve learned that in politics, anything can happen now.

Here is the speech that Oprah made last night at the Golden Globe awards that has helped spur all the talk. Here she speaks at this festival of hypocrisy in which an industry that has lectured us about our morals for years, and yet tolerated rampant abuse of women, pats itself on the back.

    • Absolutely.
      She flaunts her unlimited giving in Africa so girls can go to school. What has she done for the poor American residents of ghettos & slums & little girls ‘making love’ to some gang banger only to abort their baby…charity begins at home. I haven’t heard how she helps those ghetto inhabitants, just giving to a third world continent where one drop of giving has no long term positive results.

        • Many will fall for something like what she did with the car thing. Remember the lady who said now she will get her mortgage paid for by Obama when he was first elected.
          And so many young ones falling for Bernie’s non-sense.

  1. lol. Does this mean that MrsObama is out of luck now, what about that Harris woman? hmmm
    Not rich enough, are they.
    IMO:
    Dems, in their confusion, still haven’t figured out why MrTrump won. Was his fame, his face on TV, his money, what was it they wonder.
    Thinking the public will go for a famous, wealthy entertainer they choose Oprah. Add in the Black vote and they have a winner! right?
    If JebBush, SenCruz or any of the other candidates for the Presidency had a platform such as MrTrump proposed, and they actually meant it, it would be PresidentBush or Cruz now. They couldn’t do it, couldn’t ignore their donors who wanted certain things, and were stupid enough to think that Americans actually wanted the misery thrust on them by the Dem agenda. So, they lost, one by one, to the man who made us believe he was honest, not beholden to special interests, and we’re still hoping for the best is yet to come.

  2. Showbiz is leftist politics writ large and Oprah is in the middle of the mess. Always has been. Those of us of a certain age remember when Howdy Doody decided to run for the office of President Of All The Kids. Then Phineas T. Bluster (with his accomplices, particularly Dilly Dally) also decided to run for the position, and it got ugly in Doodyville. ;+}

  3. Elected office seekers? Out of control egos. Once a candidate assembles a staff of strokers, they assume the whole wide world loves them as much as the strokers do. Why we will not have a “salt of the earth” person in elected office? They are not that dumb.

  4. WELL, DAMN! SO WHAT’S HER ‘PLATFORM’ GONNA BE:
    “MOTHER GUYA, THE NEW AGE CHAKRA, AND OOOOOmmmm”?? GIVE IT A REST ‘O’ – MY DOG IS MORE QUALIFIED THAN YOU!

  5. An ample blow- up doll of color, inflated by the world pharmakaists (despisers of Western culture) who command & profit from commercial motion/print imagery and yet O.W. would be loathe to surrender the niceties of said culture for the people of her heritage.

  6. If she does decide to run, I wonder what conspiracy theory Dotard will come with up for her?
    He has already used up the birther one. That is if he still has his faculties 2 years from now. At this rate, highly unlikely!

  7. Good grief. The circle is now complete. Oprah is lecturing us about the hypocrisy and abuse of women in Hollywood, an industry where she has a lot of power. Yet she had been best pals with Harvey Weinstein for many years and failed to out him as an abuser of women, which she could have easily done.
