Saying she really needs a break from running the media and philanthropic empire she has built up over the past three decades-plus, Oprah Winfrey announced she is considering accepting a demotion to President of the United States in 2020.
“I’m happy to step down into this slightly less important position to allow someone else to have a go at the top,” said one of the richest self-made women in American history. “And, of course, I would make myself available to advise whoever fills my shoes on the best ways to run the country.”
Oprah noted how the simple job of running the executive branch of government should offer her some long-awaited respite from the dozens of business ventures and charities she leads and funds.
While she has been one of the ten most-admired women in the country for 30 years running, she said she would be willing to take a hit to her popularity if it meant she could spend a little more time with friends and family.
“I know that it’s a thankless job, but honestly my approval ratings have been higher than the President’s since the Reagan administration,” she said
If Oprah does decide to step down, she would face tough opposition from rival presidential candidate Roseanne Barr.
“I’m gonna run that bitch into the ground,” said Barr. “Now, if we were talking Susan Sarandon, then I might be worried.”
