Oprah Winfrey for President of the United States in 2020? Thanks to Trump proving an inexperienced (and bigoted and racist) man could become POTUS, Oprah is at least thinking about it.

Asked whether she considered running for president, Winfrey suggested in an episode of Bloomberg’s “The David Rubenstein Show: Peer-to-Peer Conversations” that it’s on her mind.
“I actually never thought that was — I never considered the question, even a possibility, I just thought ‘Oh, oh,’” Winfrey said in the interview that aired Wednesday.
Rubenstein responded, “Right, because it’s clear that you don’t need government experience to be elected president of the United States, right?”
“That’s what I thought,” Winfrey said. “I thought, ‘Oh gee, I don’t have the experience, I don’t know enough.’ Now I’m thinking, ‘Oh, oh.’”
Winfrey’s facial expressions — and the crowd reaction — made it clear what she was implying: Now that someone with no political experience, Donald Trump, has become president, it’s altered her way of looking at the office.
