This “scoop” comes from a member of my family: “You don’t need to worry about Oprah running for president; she isn’t going to do it.”
There you have it. Why? Because Oprah Winfrey isn’t going to give up being the world’s most powerful and revered woman. She isn’t going to expose herself to the denigration that would await her if she were to run against Donald John “Stable Genius” Trump Sr.
She won’t “lower herself” to Trump’s level, my family member said.
So, is that what will happen? I’m inclined to believe the assessment I have received.
I am no expert. I am no soothsayer. I cannot predict what celebrities will do. I once said publicly that former first lady Hillary Clinton wouldn’t run for the U.S. Senate in 2000. Wrong!
Winfrey brought ’em to their feet at the Golden Globes show this past weekend. She roared that “a new day is on the horizon!” Women no longer will be intimidated, shamed, abused, assaulted by men, she said. Hmm. Did she have anyone in mind? Oh, wait! Maybe it’s the president of the United States!
But … my family member believes Oprah won’t enter the 2020 presidential contest.
“She’ll go to her grave with her incredible wealth and reputation intact,” she said.
I’m good with that.
