The mainstream media’s non-stop obsession with a possible Oprah-Trump match-up in 2020 was on full display Thursday; with CBS News openly begging the television superstar to run against the President because she can help “heal and connect all people.”
Winfrey was speaking with CBS ‘This Morning’ to promote her upcoming young-adult movie ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ when she was asked if she was considering a bid for the White House.
“Nobody should be convinced to run for the Presidency,” said co-host Gayle King. “But I also think you have a very unique ability in terms of healing and connecting all people.”
“I have great compassion for people, but I think you need more than compassion to be President of the United States,” said Winfrey.
The morning anchor went on to quote the late poet Maya Angelou in her attempt to draft Oprah into the race; asking her “What do you think Maya would say? It’s one of these times I wish Maya was here.”

BIAS ALERT: NBC ENDORSES Oprah 2020 During Golden Globes
NBC shocked users on social media on Sunday night, openly endorsing Oprah Winfrey for her possible presidential run in 2020 during its broadcast of the Golden Globe Awards; writing “nothing but respect” for the “future president” before being forced to delete the incendiary tweet.
The network posted the surprising message shortly after Winfrey accepted a lifetime achievement award, where she praised the media and told viewers that a “new day is on the horizon.”
“I want all the girls watching here to know that a new day is on the horizon! And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women,” said Oprah.
A short time later, NBC removed the public posting; saying the tweet was created by a third party hired by the network to cover the Hollywood award ceremony.
“Yesterday a tweet about the Golden Globes and Oprah Winfrey was sent by a third party agency for NBC Entertainment in real time during the broadcast. It is in reference to a joke made during the monologue and not meant to be a political statement. We have since removed the tweet,” posted the network.

HILARIOUS: Watch CNN SWOON Over Oprah Presidency
CNN’s Brian Stelter is more than just a little bit excited about the possibility of Oprah Winfrey challenging President Donald Trump in the 2020 race for the White House; fawning over the prospect in dozens of clips, appearances, and interviews.
The Washington Free Beacon compiled Stelter’s greatest hits into a highlight reel of the network’s senior media correspondent breathlessly covering Winfrey’s highly-publicized acceptance speech at the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards, saying he began calling her closest confidants “the minute she finished that speech.”
“Her speech at the Golden Globes seemed downright presidential,” says Stelter, as the classic Whitney Houston rendition of “I Will Always Love You” blares in the background. “And what a speech it was. In some ways we’ve seen this speech go viral.”
Stelter responded to the hilarious video on social media Wednesday, stating, “An accurate headline would say ‘CNN Is Reporting On The Possibility Of Oprah 2020.’”
