Oprah is NOT running for president, according to her longtime best friend Gayle King. Check out the video below.

This week, the Internet went into a tizzy after a video was released showing Oprah was asked about running for office during a Bloomberg interview. The media mogul responded, “I never considered the question, even a possibility. I just thought, ‘Oh… oh?'” And when, in a nod to Donald Trump, it was pointed out that previous political experience isn’t necessary, Oprah said, “That’s what I thought. I thought, ‘Oh gee, I don’t have the experience, I don’t know enough.’ And now I’m thinking, ‘Oh.'”

But not only was that interview actually taped back in December, Oprah wasn’t actually throwing her hat into the ring for 2020. On Thursday’s “CBS This Morning,” King said, “I was in the audience that day, and it was clearly a joke. She was playing with [the reporter] because they have a great rapport.” The anchor went on to say, “But I also heard on the ‘Oprah Winfrey Show,’ guys, over the years, you always have the right to change your mind. But I would bet my first, second and any unborn children to come that ain’t never happening.”

King stressed “never,” and even tweeted after the broadcast, “My sources are quite reliable on this one!” No doubt about that. Watch below.
