Oprah Winfrey’s “your truth” (!?) speech at the Golden Globe Awards Sunday night had Hollywood liberals (as well as some in the media and many others) cheering and calling for her to run for president in 2020. Seth MacFarlane is not on board:
Oprah is beyond doubt a magnificent orator. But the idea of a reality show star running against a talk show host is troublingly dystopian. We don’t want to create a world where dedicated public service careers become undesirable and impractical in the face of raw celebrity.

Those who have already ordered their “Oprah 2020” bumper stickers and party hats are not going to like that.
Your odds of becoming Secretary of State just went way down.

They’re not supposed to be “careers” they are supposed to serve for a short time, then go home, otherwise, as hard as it is to believe, I’m gonna say this, I agree. https://t.co/FItS9fkS80
