There have been rumors swirling the last 24 hours about famed media proprietor Oprah Winfrey becoming the 46th President of the United States. The rumor came out of a clip promoting an episode of The David Rubenstein Show when Bloomberg’s David Rubenstein asked Oprah Winfrey if she would ever run for president. The teaser ends with Oprah joking, “it’s clear you don’t need government experience to be elected president of the United States.”
And just like that, the internet began forming the Winfrey 2020 campaign.

The clip did its job in garnering buzz around the show however in the actual episode Winfrey denies any claims of running for president bluntly saying, “No that won’t be happening.”
