Now that we’ve got ourselves a reality entertainment star in the White House, other entertainers are considering running for office in the 2020 elections. Stars like Dwyane “The Rock” Johnson, Kanye West, and Facebook’s CEO have all expressed interest in running for presidential election in three years.
Among those interested is Oprah Winfrey, whose support of Barack Obama in his 2008 campaign got him roughly 1 million votes. In 2016, she also endorsed Hilary Clinton. Now, it seems, she’s interested in running for office herself, especially now that Trump has been elected.
In an interview with Bloomberg Television, she commented ““I never considered the question even a possibility. I thought, ‘Oh, gee, I don’t have the experience, I don’t know enough.” Oprah added that Trump’s shocking success makes running for president seem more possible for her now.
Trump’s election has certainly stirred the air and ideas are floating around. Now more than ever, it seems anyone could be president, regardless of experience, and it’s this thought that’s turning heads.
`For now, Oprah isn’t overly interested and is focusing on the present but don’t be too surprised if we see Oprah/DeGeneres campaign fliers floating around in the future.
