Winfrey received a lifetime achievement award on Sunday

The post attacked Oprah Winfrey for an old friendship with Harvey Weinstein, days after she was applauded for an inspirational Golden Globes speech and encouraged to run for president in 2020.

When asked about it, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said questions about Mr Trump's health were "frankly, pretty ridiculous" and blamed his slurred speech on a dry throat, "nothing more than that". Her appeal extended well beyond her celebrity, some said, citing her compassion, kindness and devotion to helping others as a badly needed change after Trump.

He finished his video by applauding the victims of sexual abuse who have come forward: "What you did takes real courage and please keep showing that courage and please keep coming forward because that's the only way that we get to solve this thing".

Meyers, an entertainer, was probably joking.

The implied probability of her odds indicate that Oprah has a 11% chance of taking the White House in 2020 at this way-too-early point in the race.

"She would be sort of like me". And although she has used her great wealth to do good things, for African school girls for example, she is still someone who once jumped up and down in a TV studio yelling, "You get a vehicle! To get us to unwind what's going to happen by 2020 is going to take enormous experience".

She spoke of keeping "an ability to maintain hope for a brighter morning, even after our darkest nights".

"I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon!"

At 8/1, Oprah's implied odds of winning the presidency are 11%, a solid position in what's expected to be a crowded field. It trended on Twitter. As the day proceeded, every cable news show made sure to include a segment about the possibility. You know I did one of her last shows.

A March 2017 poll by Quinnipiac University that handed Trump a 41 percent job approval rating, said 52% of respondents had a favorable opinion of Winfrey. "She would absolutely do it".

There are things to like about Winfrey. "She's experienced the worst of what many Americans face". Whoops! Your instincts are exposed, Megyn: By that measure, you also know who the Democrats are in your audience, don't you?

On the other hand, she's also the one who foisted Dr. Phil and Dr. Oz on the world.

In what other nations but the US would idiots such as the Kardashians and those who populate Jersey Shore become celebrities? In 2012, President Barack Obama was re-elected with 71% (up from 67% in 2008).

This obsession with celebrity has not only played a major part in dumbing down the political culture and corroding social cohesion in the United States, it has done so throughout the West.

No Democratic candidate has gotten that high with whites since Bill Clinton's reelection in 1996.

George H.W. Bush was probably the best-qualified president of most of our lifetimes.

Have we learned nothing from the 2016 election and the current occupant of the Oval Office? It's depressing to think that it was really just the first foot through a door that leads us to the reality-TV wasteland depicted in the movie, "Idiocracy".

In a head-to-head matchup with President Trump, Winfrey would win 50 to 39 percent, according to a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll. Well, probably, but we can't set the bar that low.
