‘God’ Urges Oprah Winfrey to Run For President on The Late Show

For the past several weeks, Oprah Winfrey has repeatedly dismissed the idea of running for president despite having the enthusiastic support of many since giving her powerhouse speech at the Golden Globes. And in a recent interview with People Magazine, she said that she needed a “clear” sign from God in order for her to change her mind.

Well, ‘God’ spoke to her during her appearance on The Late Show Tuesday night.

‘God’ told Winfrey that He’s a “huge fan.”

“That’s great to hear. I’m a big fan of yours too, God,” Winfrey responded. “I really am.”

“Wow, Oprah knows who I am?!? I can’t wait to tell Jesus!” God exclaimed.

Stephen Colbert then chimed in asking ‘God’ if there was “something” He’d like to tell Oprah.

“Oh yeah, I hear you seekest a sign? Well, is this clear enough?” God asked while holding a sign that said “Run!”

The former daytime talkshow host bursted into laughter, telling ‘God’ that “running” is part of her exercise routine. In order to make it “clearer,” ‘God’ threw on an Oprah 2020 hat.

“Well, there it is. You asked for it,” Colbert said. “There it is, Oprah, a big endorsement.”

Oprah then told ‘God’ that being president is not something she ever saw herself doing and that it you have to fully devote yourself to such a job 100%.

“Not really, have you seen this White House?” God reacted.

“He’s got a point,” Colbert added.

Oprah insisted to ‘God’ that it’s “going to be okay” and that she’s sure that He will find someone to be inspired of by 2020. But before He left, he asked her if she can include The Bible into her bookclub.
