Oprah Winfrey is ‘intrigued’ by the idea of running for president but not ‘actively considering’ challenging Trump says best friend Gayle King
Oprah Winfrey’s best friend Gayle King, one of the co-hosts of CBS This Morning, said on the program Tuesday that the queen of talk is ‘intrigued’ by the idea of running for president.
‘I don’t think she is actively considering it, I don’t think she is actively considering it at this time,’ King said.
Presidential rumors ramped up after Winfrey gave a powerful speech at the Golden Globes Sunday night, proclaiming ‘a new day is on the horizon.’
Directly after the speech, her longtime partner Stedman Graham added fuel to the fire by telling the Los Angeles Times a presidential run isn’t totally out.
‘It’s up to the people,’ Graham said. ‘She would absolutely do it.’
Two unnamed pals of Winfrey’s added to the speculation by telling CNN Money that the longtime talk show host is ‘actively thinking’ about a bid.
