32 "Oprah 2020" Memes & Tweets, Because Who Knows What The Future Holds
Since Republicans' landslide victories in November, the future of the Democratic Party has remained unclear. Does it rest in the hands of Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, or even an unexpected Steve Beshear? Consider this: The party's future could rest in Oprah Winfrey's hands, as "Oprah 2020" tweets and memes have gained traction online after Winfrey herself lent some credibility to the rumors.
In a Bloomberg segment that aired Wednesday, Winfrey did not deny the possibility of a 2020 presidential campaign. She seemed surprised by the question, but ready to answer, albeit vaguely. When asked if she would consider running for the White House, Winfrey's response was somewhere between a "yes" and a jab at President Trump's lack of government experience.
I thought, 'Oh gee, I don't have the experience, I don't know enough.' And now, I'm thinking, 'Oh.'
The thought of Winfrey's potential candidacy set the Twittersphere immediately abuzz. While plenty of supporters are ready to join the ranks of her campaign, some still see the media mogul's vague answer about the presidency as a joke. It may very well be a joke, but what if it's not? If the last year taught the country nothing else, let's remember to take powerful celebrities who want to run for president seriously.
This is no joking matter.

What are the chances Winfrey can snag the rights to that slogan?
