"Oprah 2020, yes she can!" said the hologram. During the segment, Stephen Colbert mentioned that the divine being visits the show often as an animated depiction of "God" appeared excited to be in the presence of Winfrey. Though she never officially announced a campaign, fans took it upon themselves to offer their support, if she happens to run. He held up a cardboard sign that said,"Run!" A talking picture of "God" was projected on the ceiling in the Ed Sullivan Theater, where the show is taped. "God stops by every once in a while, he's a fan", Colbert told Winfrey, who was smiling in disbelief. The image responded "Not really, have you seen this White House?"

Oprah made clear to Colbert that she had received "not one" sign from the Lord on the matter.

Oprah found the whole thing quite amusing, laughing so hard she began to cough before replying: All I can say, God, is that running - "run" is now part of my exercise routine, I can tell you that'. "It's not the kind of job that you can have without fully devoting yourself to it 100%". "God" even had to joke about the state of the current administration to persuade her. God retorted. Winfrey still couldn't be moved, but she did leave viewers (and God) with a positive message. DuVernay, who typically dons a rounded/rectangular shaped black spectacles wore a similar pair nearly five years ago when Winfrey first Googled her at the behest of their mutual friend, David Oyelowo.

As a woman who has had to learn to keep her circle tight after decades of superstardom, Winfrey didn't quite know how to make new friends.

The earliest the Supreme Court could accept that case would be in October, pushing a final ruling possibly into 2019. Nonetheless, Trump blamed Democrats for DACA inaction, charging that they "are doing nothing" about the issue .

When asked by Colbert how the roundtables differed from her long-running talk show, Winfrey said, "I try to be completely unbiased". "And I haven't gotten that yet".

"Oh yeah, I hear you seekest a sign?"

Winfrey explained that the objective of 60 Minutes was to bridge the gap, not further divide people. "They listened and disagreed without being disagreeable with one another".
