CURTIS'S KIND WORDS

"I think you should run for President," said Curtis, 60, as the co-host, Kotob broke out in a confused laugh only to realize later that Curtis was serious about her wishes. Curtis added:

"I think you embody the absolute best because you have little babies at home and you suit up and show up in this incredibly grounded way that makes people feel safe."

As Kotob sat stunned in her seat, Curtis went on to add that Kotob was an extraordinary example for everyone and repeated her wishes for Kotob to be the next president.

HODA'S REPLY TO THE AMBITIOUS REMARK

Stunned and visibly emotional, Kotob seemed lost for words for a moment, as Curtis stated, "Sorry, just saying — that’s how I feel."

As Kotob regained composure and wiped tears from her eyes, she burst out laughing and said, "Thanks for coming by. That was a weird ending."

Supporting her favorite candidate she wished entered the fray for the 2020 presidential election, Curtis went on to chant, "Hoda! Hoda! Hoda!"

CURTIS'S TAKE ON THE POLITICAL SCENE

Earlier in the interview, Curtis had grazed the current political scenario in the States while she talked about the state of affairs in her new movie "Knives Out." She said,

“At the center of the movie is this beating heart of this immigrant, a perfect movie for this holiday. There’s plenty of red meat, plenty of blue meat, we throw it at each other and in the middle is something very important: love.”

In response to Curis's kind words, Carson Daly quipped from back in the studio. Daly playfully remarked, "Look out, Oprah 2020" addressing the Oprah fans who want her to run for the office.
