It is no surprise that Oprah was a vehement follower and supporter of President Barack Obama and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
The media mogul said in June that she “will never run for public office,” but she promoted an article last month, saying she is the Democratic Party’s best hope for the 2020 election.
“Thanks for your VOTE of confidence!” Oprah tweeted at conservative writer John Podhoretz with a link to his New York Post article: “Democrats’ best hope for 2020: Oprah.”

According to IJR:
The billionaire media mogul has revealed that at first, she didn’t plan on running for president ever, but after seeing President Donald Trump win the 2016 presidential elections against the former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, it made her rethink what it really took and meant to be a president, saying, “I never considered the question, even a possibility, but now, after seeing Trump win, I just thought, ‘Oh, oh?’”
But despite being inactive for the past year in the field of politics, Winfrey was making headlines back in 2007, when she was hyper-political and campaigning for former President Barack Obama. She was also a good friend with the Obamas and was tagging along for their administration’s failed attempt at getting the Olympics in Chicago.
And she hasn’t kept it a secret that she sides with the Democratic party, especially since people started fantasizing about her running for office, more specifically for a Vice Presidential position.
But recently on CBS, Oprah was asked about her political future, which prompted her to answer saying, ”I think you could break news here today … 2020, I’m wondering if you’ve narrowed down your short list of VP candidates?”
She then settled all rumors by finally admitting, “Well you can be safe with that. There will be no running for the office of any kind for me.”
Like anyone would want Oprah. Another identity politics playing card. The Democrats will install another corporate puppet who panders to identity politics for 2020 and Trump will win in a huge landslide with not many blue states left.
