If Donald Trump can be president of the United States, why not the most famous female television personality of all time?
“I never considered the question even a possibility,” Oprah Winfrey told David Rubenstein on Bloomberg TV, when asked if she’s now considering a run for the White House in 2020. “I thought, ‘Oh gee, I don’t have the experience, I don’t know enough.’ And now I’m thinking, ‘Oh! Oh!'”
And based on reactions, from MSNBC online polls to tweets and Facebook shares, “O!” might just be what America is looking for after what the current president has already dubbed “The Trump Era.”
CBS Late Show host Stephen Colbert is already on board:

And just imagine if Oprah teamed-up with someone who has eight years of White House experience, perhaps a former First Lady? No, not Hillary Clinton:
