Oprah Winfrey could do no wrong. Not only is she an influential media producer, but she is also a philanthropist who has inspired millions of viewers to be the best human beings they could possibly be.

She's the real deal. Why wouldn't we want her to run the country?

After rumors about a possible run for president swirled after her powerful "time is up" speech at the 2018 Golden Globes, she set the record straight, once and for all, on the The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.

Noah asked what we were all wondering about.

"Is Oprah Winfrey running for president?" he asked, eliciting cheers and applause from the audience.

As viewers crossed their fingers and waited for an affirmation, Harpo said:

"You don't even want that to happen."

Oh, yes we would, Oprah. Alas, our wishful thinking did not manifest in the way we had hoped.


"Why would you say that?" asked the host.

Oprah's reason for not taking over the White House lay in a conversation she had with close friend and co-anchor for CBS This Morning, Gayle King.

"You know, Gayle, my dearest friend, I thought she was actually serious. Like 'I think you should do it. You should do it for the country."
"I said, 'You don't want that to happen because I have such a beautiful life! I have such a beautiful life! Why would I want to put myself in that?'"







She remained adamant about continuing on her own trajectory in life.

"I know my path and my path isn't that. But whenever I decide whoever I want to support, I will get behind that person."





Some remain hoping against hope.




Oprah stuck around for the online "Between the Scenes" segment on the show to participate in the Q&A session in which we learned she has an avocado orchard and has the edge of her toilet paper folded into a triangle on the rolls in her bathrooms at home.

She also said she is planning to open a school in the United States in the vein her South Africa academy.

When looking at a resume, it's easy to understand how prospective employers will assume someone is very intelligent based on their education and past experience.

But one shouldn't only assume someone's intelligence based on what they read.

More often than not, one can tell rather quickly that someone possesses above-average intelligence, based on how they speak, how they behave, or other telling details.

With each passing year of a marriage, couples will often discover that while they don't love each other any less than they once did, that spark their relationship used to carry has faded.

This will often lead these couples to look for ways to spice things up a bit.

Among the more popular experiments is inviting a third member to their bedroom.

Enticing as this prospect is, however, it's also easy to be intimidated by the reality of it, or even the mere suggestion of it.

Though not necessarily a universal truth, all of us have witnessed unfortunate moments in our lives where we've seen this saying become a reality.

Be it seeing our favorite public figures take a serious fall from grace, someone we know and admire eventually disappointing us in a devastating manner, or even seeing ourselves turn into someone we promised we'd never become.

Sometimes we do things that have to be done.

And some of those things live in life's gray area of right and wrong.

What comes as a surprise to some is when we don't care if we're wrong.

We may still technically be in the right.

But morally and ethically, there may be some issues.

But still, many people don't care.
