You can thank Oprah Winfrey‘s longtime partner Stedman Graham for getting your hopes up about her running for President in 2020!
After the Internet basically called for the icon to campaign following her inspiring Golden Globes speech on Sunday, it’s since been revealed the 63-year-old isn’t as up for getting elected as we initially thought!
In case you missed it, Stedman told the press she “would absolutely do it,” but Gayle King is clarifying he misunderstood the question!
The TV personality told CBS This Morning on Tuesday:
“I was up talking to her very late last night. I do think she is intrigued by the idea, I do think that. I also know that after years of watching The Oprah Winfrey Show, you always have the right to change your mind. I don’t think at this point she’s actually considering it.”
And continued, adding:
“But listen, there are people saying they want to quit their jobs and be her campaign manager. She loves this county and would like to be of service in some way. But I don’t think she’s actively considering it at this time.”
