The subject of Oprah Winfrey’s potential presidency has come up before, and the media mogul herself has firmluy quashed it, but it looks like she may be reconsidering her stance.
Appearing on The David Rubenstein Show Wednesday, Oprah said that the current political climate has forced her hand.
- Host David Rubenstein asked Oprah: "Have you ever thought that—given the popularity you have [and] we still haven't broken the glass ceiling yet for women—that you could run for president and actually be elected?"
- Oprah responded: "I just thought, 'Oh, gee, I don't have the experience, I don't know enough, I don't know.' And now I'm thinking…Oh!"
- In 2015, Oprah and her best friend Gayle King talked about a potential run on CBS she said: "Not in this lifetime."
