“God” tells Oprah to run for President on “Late Show with Stephen Colbert”

She didn't go for it though.


“God” has made it clear: He wants Oprah to run for president in 2020.

Okay, so it was part of an ongoing bit that Stephen Colbert does on “The Late Show,” in which he projects a cartoon image of the Almighty on the ceiling of the Ed Sullivan Theatre, where he tapes the show. If such things offend you, you probably shouldn’t watch.

But since Oprah has been on record saying she would need a clear sign from God, Colbert used the gimmick to try to coax the TV star into candidacy. Winfrey, who was on to promote “A Wrinkle in Time,” wasn’t going for it though.
