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.

Manipulation is designed to be stealthy. We hardly recognize it when it's happening to us because our abuser has forced it to appear under wraps.

But when we recognize it for what it really is, we really feel like we've been smacked across the face. There is no other descriptor for it. Usually we've trusted and loved those that manipulated us.

Just as new mothers encounter the sudden, influential developments of powerful hormone changes, protective instincts, and milk production, so new fathers undergo some key changes of their own.

Their socks become exclusively white, climbing higher up the calf than ever before. All their shorts sprout cargo pockets and clunky belt loop cell phone holders. They start to really lean in to their old records.

Cleaning up is hard enough when it's just clearing a month of dust bunnies. Can you imagine cleaning the debris left by murder, suicide and violence? I have a really great friend who used to do crime scene clean-up for a living. The pay is incredible; it starts at $55 an hour. But there is a much higher cost in mental well being. Death affects you in ways you don't always feel immediately. My friend has stories of nightmares, depression and pain after leaving scenes of horror. Why make all that money just to spend it on therapy? It takes a certain type of person.

***TRIGGER WARNING. CONTENTS ARE SENSITIVE ***

Redditor u/MemegodDave wanted to hear from the people who have the stomach to come in after crime and tragedy

to try to bring back some form of normalcy to the location by asking... People who make their living out of cleaning murder scenes, accidents and the like, what is the worst thing you have experienced in your career?

We all know the telltale signs that something is making us uncomfortable. Suddenly, we begin shaking, either in our hands or knees or toes. Then, usually, sweat starts pouring out of every part of our body, making it look like we just ran through a rainstorm underneath a waterfall. Finally, we lose our regular speech functions. Everything goes out of sync and our words don't match up to what's in our minds.

What's interesting is that what usually brings about these fits of uncomfortableness differs from person to person, as evidenced by the stories below.
