Oprah Winfrey could be next Senate if Dianne Feinstein retires early, Internet says 'there are better candidates'
SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA: Rumors are rife that California Governor Gavin Newsom could consider appointing Oprah Winfrey to the Senate if Dianne Feinstein retires early. Newson has reportedly promised to appoint a Black woman to the seat. Winfrey may be on a list of contenders.
Winfrey has teased running for president publicly sometimes. In 2018, reports claimed she was seriously considering the idea. The reports were slammed by Terry Schilling, president of the American Principle's Project, who said sex and skin color should not be the parameters to determine who can represent the people of the state.

"Whether or not Oprah is qualified to serve as a senator is up for debate. But what shouldn't be debatable is that the people of California, just like any other state, deserve the best person possible representing them, not someone whose chief qualification is their sex and skin color," according to Daily Mail. "Democrats' identity politics is tearing this country apart, and it needs to stop."
'Nancy Corinne has been supporting her in her shingles recovery'
Feinstein's office has revealed that she suffered complications including encephalitis. It was reported that Nancy Corinne Prowda, Speaker Emerita Nancy Pelosi's eldest daughter, has been acting as a kind of caretaker to Feinstein. However, a spokesman for Feinstein has claimed Prowda was not drawing a salary.
"Nancy Corinne and Senator Feinstein have been friends for decades. Nancy Corinne has been supporting her in her shingles recovery," Aaron Bennett said in a statement. "Speaker Emerita Pelosi and Senator Feinstein have been friends since long before their service in Congress — and their friendship is personal, not political. Anyone who knows Senator Feinstein knows that her service in the Senate is entirely her own decision, and Speaker Emerita Pelosi would never suggest otherwise."
'There are much better candidates than Oprah'
Many social media users believe there are better candidates than Winfrey. "Oh god. We know the people she makes famous do we want her working with advisors like Dr Phil? There are much better candidates than Oprah. But if a famous person why not Arnold? he knows politics. I am sure in the rush to finish this comment I am sure there are even better female opions," one user commented on Facebook. "I'd rather see Michelle Obama. So many MAGA heads exploding...," another said.
"Well, she should dispense with all her wealth in support of equity and inclusiveness," one user wrote, while another said, "A rock would make a good replacement. Seriously, leave the position unfilled. Californian's lives literally depend on picking good leadership, yet Californian's refuse to do so." "Hopefully someone at least 3 decades younger," one user said, speaking of who should replace Feinstein.
