Sorry, America: Oprah's BFF Gayle King Says the Mogul Will Never Run for President
Don’t get too excited, America: Oprah Winfrey is likely not running for president.
“I thought, ‘Oh gee, I don’t have the experience, I don’t know enough,’ ” she said. “Now I’m thinking, ‘Oh. Oh.’ ”
This quote, obviously, sent the Internet into a frenzy, wondering if Oprah would indeed go head to head with Trump come 2020.
But Oprah’s BFF, CBS This Morning host Gayle King, is here to manage your expectations.
The day after Oprah’s Bloomberg interview surfaced, King and her CBS This Morning co-hosts were discussing the buzzy interview when she took a moment to clear things up.
“I was in the audience that day and it was clearly a joke … she was playing with David because they have such a great rapport,” she said. “I would bet my first, second-born and any unborn children to come, that ain’t never happening. Never. I’ll say never on this one. Nevah, N-E-V-A-H. Nevah.”

However, King did admit that her friend has long taught her that there’s always room for new decisions.
“But, I also heard on The Oprah Winfrey Show over the years you always have the right to change your mind,” she said.
So while she’s ruling it out for now, remember: Even Oprah says no decision has to be final.
