On the David Rubenstein Show, media queen Oprah Winfrey said Donald Trump inspired her to start thinking about a presidential run.
“You could actually run for president and actually be elected,” the host said. The audience applauded.
Oprah replied, “I never considered the question even a possibility. I thought, ‘Oh gee! I don’t have the experience. I don’t know enough.’ Now I’m thinking, ‘Oh!’ “
Oprah might be kidding, but we genuinely hope she’s not. She would absolutely win — she’s smart, media-savvy, charismatic and incredibly driven.
Like Trump, she’s a celebrity with no political experience, and a businessperson.
Unlike Trump, she’s actually a successful businessperson. Trump inherited millions from his father and still managed to go bankrupt multiple times. But Oprah, the daughter of an unwed housemaid, built a multibillion-dollar media empire up from nothing.
We hope during the State of the Union Address in four years we’ll be hearing, “You get healthcare! And you get healthcare! And you get healthcare!”
