But it was her support of women calling out sexual harassment that fueled talk among Democrats in states where presidential runs usually begin, Iowa and New Hampshire.

Jones said there was "bedlam in Oprah Land" with people in her orbit begging her to consider, but he added she had given no indication she had moved off her prior position of not being interested in a White House run. Oprah would be a lot of fun. When she ramped the energy and emotion even higher with her "new day is on the horizon" proclamation, I no longer had any doubt that I was hearing political oratory of a very high order.

CNN quoted two anonymous "close friends" as saying Winfrey was "actively thinking" about a presidential run. "Oprah would always be my first choice", he told interviewer Larry King in 1999. But then her longtime partner, Stedman Graham, told the Los Angeles Times she just might. - I thought it sounded nearly like a campaign speech.

Billionaire and president of the World Jewish Congress Ronald Lauder, (pictured above) who has known Trump for decades, published a statement praising the nation's commander in chief and expressed confidence in his functioning. No way, says political prognosticator Donald Trump. "And I now have had the privilege of working with him on some of the most complex diplomatic challenges imaginable", the statement says.

Still, Winfrey might be in good company in terms of her polling. The word is she gets in bed with-I mean, I've got Hollywood contacts.

Oprah Winfrey's Golden Globes speech while accepting the Cecil B DeMille award is being hailed as one of the "greatest American speeches" of all time, with many even dubbing her the future president. "I don't think at this point she's actually considering it".

Streep, however, gave a ringing endorsement when she was asked about Oprah's speech by The Washington Post's Steven Zeitchik.

"I don't think she had any intention of declaring", she added.

King said: "She loves this country and would like to be of service in some way".

Several Twitter users as well quickly declared that Oprah needed to make a run for the Oval Office.

Winfrey has raised millions of dollars for various causes, including shelters for battered women but, like Trump when he launched his White House campaign, but she has no prior experience in government. Trump, of course, was a businessman-turned-reality-television-star before his extraordinary political rise.
