Oprah Winfrey Explains Why She Won’t Run for President in 2020: ‘It Would Kill Me’

-After her rousing speech at the 2018 Golden Globes, many people were speculating if she was going to run for office in 2020.
-“In that political structure ― all the non-truths, the bulls–t, the crap, the nastiness, the backhanded backroom stuff that goes on ― I feel like I could not exist." “I would not be able to do it. It’s not a clean business. It would kill me.”
-Saw the response from her speech & she considered looking at the question.
Oprah on her approach to the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements:
-“People talk about ‘these are such dark times,’ but what if we shift the paradigm? Because I see it differently,” Winfrey said. “I see, ‘Isn’t this remarkable that we’re waking up?’ For years, women have endured craziness. This is what’s happening to people. They’re allowing themselves to not just become corroded, but to become hysterical. You’ve got to lean to the happiness.”
-In the article, talks about her continued support for the me-too & Time’s Up movements against sexual abuse, harassment & exploitation.
