There has been immense public support for Oprah Winfrey to run for president in the upcoming 2020 election. However, the media magnate says she would only be up for the possibility if she receives a divine “sign.”
Her message from “God” finally came during a visit to The Late Show. During the segment, Stephen Colbert mentioned that the divine being visits the show often as an animated depiction of “God” appeared excited to be in the presence of Winfrey.
“It’s God, everybody! Give it up for the Lord,” Colbert said.
“I’m a huge fan,” the figure told Oprah. “That’s great to hear. I’m a big fan of yours, too, God. I really am,” she humorously played along.
“I hear thou seekest a sign? Well, is this clear enough?” The animated figure held up a sign that read “RUN!” “God” also help up campaign merchandise for Oprah 2020. Winfrey then explained why she has not committed to running for the most important job in America.
Watch the hilarious clip above as Oprah promotes A Wrinkle in Time and hears another special request from “God.”
