"So if that's true, I just want to say: Oprah, you will never be president!"
'Oprah, I love Oprah.
"I don't think at this point she is actually considering it", King said.
Fuck it. The 2020 race will be Trump against Oprah, with cameo appearances from Mark Zuckerberg and Kanye West.
Winfrey's presidential history also extends to the previous administration.
It comes after Winfrey's longterm partner Stedman Graham revealed that she would "absolutely" run for president. Over 30-plus years, she became the face of television talk shows, starred and produced feature films, and began her own network.
And after some pushing and prodding from her co-anchors, King said she agreed. People are lining up to support someone for president without her having issued one policy statement.
Winfrey, who is a strong supporter of LGBT rights, campaigned for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012, and endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2016.
King reiterated that statement Tuesday morning: "I absolutely don't think that her position has changed". "It's not happening. She has no intention of running", the source said.
Oprah first gained national fame with her TV talk show, which often focused on self-improvement and touched on previously taboo subjects like incest, rape, eating disorders and depression.
