If you were hoping Oprah Winfrey would run for President after rumors circulated she was considering it, I have bad news. The media mogul confirmed to InStyle magazine she WON’T be running.

“I’ve always felt very secure and confident with myself in knowing what I could do and what I could not. And so it’s not something that interests me,” she said. “I don’t have the DNA for it.”

What?! Of course you do! She did, however, speak candidly about using NOT social media to influence and make an impact.

“I try not to lean into the hysteria. I’ve heard a lot of Twitter chatter where people have said, ‘Where are you? You should be speaking up on these things!’ But it makes no sense to speak when you cannot be heard,” she stated. “One hundred and forty characters—that is not how you want to make your mark in the world.”
