Gayle King: Oprah isn't running for president, except if she is

Oprah Winfrey delivered a powerful speech at yesterday's Golden Globes which has prompted speculation she is contemplating a Presidential run in 2020.

Taken from 2000's The America We Deserve, he said that Oprah would make an excellent vice president.

Meryl Streep was quoted as telling the Washington Post that she wanted Winfrey to run for president.

Yesterday a tweet about the Golden Globes and Oprah Winfrey was sent by a third party agency for NBC Entertainment in real time during the broadcast. "They just don't understand how many Americans respect and admire Oprah for her intelligence and caring", he wrote.

"So I want, tonight, to express gratitude to all the women who have endured years of abuse and assault because they, like my mother, had children to feed and bills to pay and dreams to pursue".

"To the media, the left in this country, Oprah apparently is their chosen one, she's the new messiah that they'll blindly worship and follow like the sheep they are", Hannity said. In a 1999 television interview when he said he was thinking about running for president the following year (although he did not), Trump declared, "Oprah would always be my first choice" for a running mate, adding, "she's brilliant" and "a very exceptional woman".

Gayle King: Oprah isn't running for president, except if she is

Winfrey's friend, "CBS This Morning" host Gayle King, said she spoke to the mogul on Monday night and she was "intrigued" by the idea of running, but doesn't think that her position has changed.

Additionally, Winfrey has supported a handful of major Democratic candidates and endorsed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016. Whereas many recipients of lifetime achievement awards take time to reflect on their time in the industry, Oprah took a moment to uplift the late civil rights figure Recy Taylor. But we should also be mindful that many people have underestimated Winfrey during the course of her long career.

So I want all the girls watching here now to know that a new day is on the horizon.

"After last night's speech, all of these private jet liberals are all showing off their newfound political affection for Oprah". "I said, 'I think this is beyond and above politics.' It feels like something new".

Trump, a billionaire TV star whose ascent to the presidency was fueled by name recognition, sheer wattage and personality, has long praised Winfrey, who shares numerous same qualities. Winfrey made her first campaign appearances on Obama's behalf in December of that year, and it is logical to assume that her support won him votes in the primaries, though it is not possible to know how many.
