Is Oprah Winfrey running for president? Not according to her best friend Gayle King.
On CBS This Morning, King commented on the rumor, saying,
“I would bet my first, second born, and any unborn children to come that ain’t never happening.”
CBS News’ Anthony Mason insisted “never say never,” but King responded,
“I’ll say never on this one. Nevah. N-E-V-A-H. Nevah.”
No! Why would you do this to us, Gayle?
It turns out the whole thing was actually just a joke that got out of hand.
“I was in the audience that day and it was clearly a joke when she was playing with David [Rubenstein] because they have such a great rapport.”
Consider our hopes for an Oprah presidency officially killed.
