Oprah Winfrey for President, 2020

What do you think? I think, for Trump, it would be the best thing ever.

First Trump, then Oprah.

How about David Letterman after that? Or maybe Pamela Anderson?

I just want to hear the presidential debates. But not more than Dwayne Johnson's.

In all seriousness, I am highly concerned about the future of American politics.

The media of entertainment and politics will become more intertwined, making it difficult to separate the partisan issues from the bipartisan issues. It will also be harder to unmask the flaws of each and every political party, as the general public would/will be more interested in the celebrities/famous/affluent rather than their policies/promises and their subsequent executions. People will get further distracted from their more important goals, and American society will probably destabilize.

In short, I fear for all.

At this rate, Nicki Minaj will eventually run for president.

This last election cycle wasn't the first time the American Voting population, or rather the percentage that managed to show up, voted for someone who was more flash than bang.

And it won't be the last.

Name recognition is how dudes voted for US Grant, back in the day.
I don't think there's anything about the entertainment industry that should keep someone who works in it from holding public office.

Winfrey is the head of a self-made media corporation.
Johnson a charismatic business man.

They could potentially be good at politics.

She's not a native-born American citizen, so she can't run for the office of the President.
