Oprah for President: Twitter erupts

Most Americans'don't want Oprah to run for president

Most Americans'don't want Oprah to run for president

"Yeah, I'll beat Oprah", Mr Trump told reporters during a meeting to discuss immigration reform with United States senators.

If you were inspired by Oprah Winfrey's acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 2018 Golden Globes, you definitely have to check out the second speech she made backstage. While listening to the speech, it had reminded me of then little known Sen.

Winfrey, who is a strong supporter of LGBT rights, campaigned for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012, and endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2016. In my career, what I've always tried my best to do, whether on television or through film, is to say something about how men and women really behave. "If it means looking at one of these celebrities that have a moral core, that are compassion and intelligent, I think that people should look to where they can during these very, very hard times".

After audience laughter died down, she grew serious and said: "No, that won't be happening". "I knew her very well", he added. "She loves this country and would like to be of service in some way". King confirmed as much on CTM, saying, "I was up talking to her very late last night".

"Have you ever thought given the popularity you have - we haven't broken the glass ceiling yet for women - that you could actually run for president and be elected?"

"I like Oprah", he said, noting that he had appeared on her long-running afternoon program.

Like President Trump, Oprah Winfrey knows how to play to the media.

According to recent bestseller Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, written by Michael Wolff, Ms Trump has her own future designs on the presidency.

That was the field of Democrats said to be considering a run in 2020, against President Donald Trump.

When Mr Trump discussed a White House run with talk show host Larry King in 1999, he picked Winfrey as his potential running mate.

Those aren't exactly good numbers for the president - especially considering Oprah seems to be quelling the rumors that she would be running for office.

Oprah's BFF Gayle King denies that the queen of media would make a presidential run.

The enthusiasm for an Oprah candidacy illustrates the range of candidates who may eventually run against Trump.

Even Trump's daughter Ivanka endorsed Oprah's message, if not a political future, in a tweet Monday.

Democrats dreaming of Oprah facing Trump, ought to also be thinking about how Oprah would stand up against Nikki Haley as the Republican nominee. Those candidates frequently mentioned include former Vice President Joe Biden, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Senator Bernie Sanders, Senator Corey Booker, and others. Would Oprah even want to put herself through that?
