Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has made his decision on his running mate for the 2020 presidential election. For his vice president he has chosen Oprah Winfrey, the talk show host and philanthropist. In 2016 Bloomberg flirted with the idea of Oprah Winfrey as his secretary of commerce, this time deciding to make the leap and add her name to the ballot.
Bloomberg has a history of sexist and racist comments, and hopes that selecting the most powerful black woman in America will rectify this. Winfrey, who was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Obama for her efforts during the 2008 election, has decided she is ready to help get Bloomberg to the White House.
Despite his patterns of sexual harassment and discrimination against minorities, Winfrey and Bloomberg get along quite well and have become good friends. Winfrey’s work with the Time’s Up movement and her Leadership Academy for Girls will help balance Bloomberg’s past controversies.
Bloomberg is a late addition to the poll and is hoping this move will produce a frenzy of online memes and thus boost his polling numbers.
