President Trump’s surprising election has another household name thinking she might try her hand at this whole running-for-president thing—Oprah Winfrey.
Oprah said recently in an interview that she’d never really considered it an option, per Daily Mail.
Check it out:
‘I thought, “Oh, gee, I don’t have experience. I don’t know enough. I don’t.”
‘And now I’m thinking, “Oh! Oh!”‘
Oprah would be the first woman president if she were to leverage her near-universal name ID and nationwide support to match Trump’s political lightning moment.
The famed business woman and media mogul went on to say that her entire career was built by unexpected victories.
When she was hired to host ‘A. M. Chicago’ in 1984, she said, most of her friends predicted she would fail because her show competed with legendary interviewer Phil Donahue.
‘It didn’t matter to me, because I did not think that he was beatable,’ she recalled.
But ultimately, ‘I beat him. I did. I wasn’t trying to.’

But Donald Trump is not Phil Donahue.
And Oprah Winfrey is certainly no Donald Trump.
