Gayle King Pressures Oprah Winfrey to Run for President on CBS This Morning.

Winfrey appeared on CBS This Morning Tuesday to promote A Wrinkle in Time (in theaters Friday), and confirmed that Gayle King was, in fact, one of many who had tried to persuade her to run for public office. Their initial conversation took place in Winfrey’s private gym in Maui, shortly before the annual award ceremony occurred. “Gayle goes, ‘Look, uh, I just want to talk to you about something. It’s not going to be good for you, but I think it would be good for the country,'” she said. “And I’m like, ‘Get out of here! I wanted you to come listen to the speech.'”
