'Yeah I'll beat Oprah. Oprah would be a lot of fun'

'Yeah I'll beat Oprah. Oprah would be a lot of fun'

In the days following the original reports against Winstein, Oprah addressed the allegations on Facebook and said that she was still "processing the accounts of Harvey Weinstein's disgusting behavior". If you watched her Golden Globes speech and said, "She should run", then the 2016 election and the first year of the Trump presidency have addled your brain. "I don't think she's going to run", said the Republican president, 71.

Winfrey's rousing speech at the Golden Globes started an avalanche of speculation that she could run for president.

Winfrey confidante Gayle King said earlier on Tuesday that the media mogul was not now running for president.

Were Winfrey to launch a presidential bid, she'd find herself in foreign territory: being scrutinized by a media that has historically portrayed her in a favorable light, said Yvonne Davis, a FoxCT contributor who worked on former President George W. Bush's campaigns. We talked about it right here yesterday, reacting to Oprah's speech, "her confident, powerful words, her strong demeanor, her unwavering conviction", and how that all led up to a speech that sounded, for lack of a better word, presidential. "But I don't think she's actively considering it at this time". You know, I did one of our last shows.

Trump has expressed his admiration for Winfrey in the past.

The move comes after United bosses were left fuming when the Spanish club announced it would be charging fans travelling to Sevilla nearly £90 to watch the last 16 clash next month.

Shortly afterwards, the hashtags #Oprahforpresident and #Oprah2020 began trending on Twitter. "I don't think at this point she's actually considering it". They reminded her that more than a dozen women have accused President Trump of sexual harassment and misconduct dating back decades, and that Trump was caught on tape bragging about grabbing women's genitals.

Last fall Winfrey dismissed the notion of running for president. "She wanted it to be a uniting speech", King said.

On the other hand, I could argue that she should be disqualified simply on the basis of her promotion of "The Secret", a multimedia juggernaut that claimed that the entire universe and every moment of human experience are governed by "the law of attraction".

"I think Oprah would be great".

"She's certainly a bigger celebrity than Trump ever was, especially in terms of connecting with her audience". After college, she went into journalism before reigning for 25 years as queen of the USA talk show scene, ushering in an era of confessional television before becoming the first black woman to own a television network.
