Actress Roseanne Barr recently said she thinks she would be a better president than Oprah Winfrey, as talk continues to swirl around the former talk-show host’s potential political future after she gave a highly praised speech at the Golden Globes.

Speaking on a panel during a media tour for the Television Critics Association, Barr said she would be a better commander in chief than Winfrey and President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump: 'I will not let Iran have nuclear weapons' Rocket attack hits Baghdad's Green Zone amid escalating tensions: reports Buttigieg on Trump tweets: 'I don't care' MORE, according to The Hollywood Reporter.


"Actually, I think I’d be a better president than Oprah and Susan Sarandon, probably even President Trump. And I did run in 2012," Barr said.

Speculation over a potential 2020 run for Winfrey began after she gave a speech about sexual abuse at the Golden Globes in which she paid homage to victims and also to members of the press.

Barr, who backed Trump, reportedly also said she loves Winfrey “like everybody else.” 

"I do love Oprah. Of course I love Oprah, like everybody else,” Barr said, according to the news outlet.

“But you know what? I think it was time for us as a country to shake things up and, you know, try something different.”
