Gayle King: Oprah ‘Intrigued’ by Idea of Running for President

Gayle King publicly commented Tuesday morning for the first time on calls for her best friend, Oprah Winfrey, to run for president following a rousing Golden Globes speech. “I do think she’s intrigued by the idea,” King confessed to her CBS This Morning co-hosts. However, she clarified, “I don’t think at this point she is actually considering it. But listen, there are people who’ve said they want to be her campaign manager.” King also claimed that when Stedman Graham told the awards-show press that his longtime partner Oprah would “absolutely” run in 2020, “he thought the reporter was saying would she be a good president.”
