Golden Globes host Seth Meyers made a joke on Sunday that many people didn't think was funny.

During the live broadcast of the event, he recounted a memory where he attended the White House correspondents’ dinner in 2011 and suggested that President Donald Trump was not qualified to become president, according to The Washington Post.

But Trump indeed became president. As a result, Meyers suggested Oprah was also not qualified for president in hopes that she might ultimately run and win.

Many who watched the live event took him seriously. Since then, Twitter and other media outlets have been ablaze with the news of a potential Oprah presidency.

But some, too, have had their doubts.

Paul Waldman, a senior writer at The American Prospect, said in an op-ed he wrote for The Washington Post that Oprah still has much work to do to prove herself as a possible contender.

Oprah has not yet confirmed a potential run for the presidency. However, sources close to her say she is seriously considering it, according to CNN.
