Gayle King Would Likely Have to Quit CBS Job If Oprah Runs

Oprah on a political run in the past 'Never!'

Oprah for President: Twitter erupts

The White House continued to field questions about a potential Winfrey candidacy Tuesday afternoon.

"Oprah would be a lot of fun, I know her very well, you know I did one of her last shows".

Winfrey herself has not said anything publicly since Sunday on the prospect of challenging Trump, but in the past, she has rejected the idea of entering politics.

Winfrey endorsed Democratic Senator Barack Obama of IL when he first ran successfully for the U.S. presidency in 2008, and former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in her losing 2016 campaign against Trump.

A Winfrey confidante says the actress is "intrigued" by the possibility of declaring a 2020 presidential campaign. I don't think she's going to run.

"But I don't think she's actively considering it at this time", King said. I do think that.

According to Oprah's longtime partner, Stedman Graham, the beloved talk show host "would absolutely" run for President.

Winfrey, who is a strong supporter of LGBT rights, campaigned for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012, and endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2016.

If Seal has anything to say about, it she won't. King confirmed as much on CTM, saying, "I was up talking to her very late last night".

Sources told CNN on Monday that Winfrey's friends were urging her to seek the Democratic nomination, potentially setting up a face-off against President Trump, presumptive Republican nominee.

The President will have surprised few observers with his predicted outcome of any future White House race against Ms Winfrey.

When asked if Winfrey had the skill set to be president, Spielberg took a dig at Donald Trump. One sign that Oprah is throwing her hat in the ring will be if she starts wearing red ball caps inscribed "Make America Book Reading Great Again". He even said he would love to have her as his running mate. Seventy-six percent said they would support the talk show host, with 22 percent of Republicans and 44 percent of independents following suit.

Members of Congress will apparently be making a fashion statement not at an awards show - but at the president's State of the Union address on January 30.
