Donald Trump has expressed interest in the past of having Oprah Winfrey as his running mate, but it looks like he’s barking – or should we say “yapping“? – up the wrong tree.

Asked by Jimmy Kimmel whether Trump had contacted her about the prospect, the 62-year-old TV icon said she had “not gotten the call.” But if she did?

“I would say, ‘Donald, I’m with her,’ ” Winfrey said, referencing the campaign slogan for presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and drawing applause from the crowd.

Winfrey also voiced her support for Clinton in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, saying she “really believes” the U.S. will elect its first female president.

“It’s about time that we make that decision,” Winfrey said. “Regardless of your politics, it’s a seminal moment for women. What this says is, there is no ceiling, that ceiling just went boom! It says anything is possible when you can be leader of the free world.”

“I’m with her,” Winfrey stated again.
