Oprah: No Way I'm Running for President

Oprah: No Way I'm Running for President

So that’s why they call her Nope-rah!

The multi-talented Oprah Winfrey says it’s not in her "spirit" to run for president and she has no intention to run for office, CBS News reports.

"I am actually humbled by the fact that people think that I could be a leader of the free world, but it's just not in my spirit," she told 60 Minutes Overtime correspondent Ann Silvio. "It's not in my DNA."

Winfrey, a 60 Minutes correspondent, gave an impassioned speech about racism and sexism while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement at last month’s Golden Globes Awards – spurring talk she might be interested in running for the White House in 2020.

That was not her intention, she said.

"I was just trying to give a good speech," she said. "I was looking for a way to express what was going on in this moment in terms of gender and class and race. I cared about landing that speech in the room."

The speech came amid the Harvey Weinstein sex scandal and the start of the #MeToo movement.

She told Silvio “a lot of wealthy men” have been calling her offering to run her campaign and raise $1 billion.

But, she stressed to Silvio, she had not gotten a call from a higher authority.

"If God actually wanted me to run, wouldn't God kinda tell me? And I haven't heard that," she said.
