A Selection Of The Most OTT Reactions To An Imagined Oprah Presidency

Actress and TV talk show host Oprah Winfrey seen here posing with the Cecil B De Mille Award during the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday delivered a rousing speech that has Democrats talking about her running for president in 2020

Steele, who's no fan of the current commander in chief, had lots of advice for Oprah, like getting to know exactly what the presidency entails and learning how to bridge political differences. However, he did not think she is going to run.

"I know her very well", he said, before adding: "I don't think she's going to run".

President Donald Trump on Tuesday predicted he'd clock Oprah Winfrey should she chose to run for the White House in 2020.

Winfrey's name came up again at the White House press briefing on January 9, when Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked if she had any campaign advice for the famed talk show host.

"I will never run for public office", she told The Hollywood Reporter last June.

As her longtime partner Stedman Graham watched from the audience, she told the story of a black woman from Alabama named Recy Taylor, who died at the age of 97 on December 28, 2017, and her fight for justice after her rape by six white men in 1944. "Her last week. She had Donald Trump and my family".

During Clinton's campaign, she discussed the prospect of a female president and said "America, it's about time that we made that decision".

Two unnamed pals of Winfrey's added to the speculation by telling CNN Money that the longtime talk show host is "actively thinking" about a bid.


In some ways, a Winfrey candidacy isn't that far fetched at a time in which a reality show star worked his way into the White House, shattering numerous norms along the way.

Her speech set the internet ablaze with hopes and dreams that she would run for president in 2020. And some have said that night convinced him to run.

He says she'd be able to walk the walk when it comes to unifying a highly polarized electorate. "It's up to the people".

Co-host Norah O'Donnell challenged King on that, pointing to the fact that Graham did indeed say, "She would absolutely do it".

Until Oprah finally answers our Presidential prayers, we're more than ready to rock these hoodies and tees.

Winfrey's Cecil B. DeMille Award acceptance speech was a full-throated tribute to the women and men who support the #MeToo Movement. "She's good. She's great".

Winfrey, a billionaire media mogul, hasn't commented on whether she would mount a campaign.

Actress Meryl Streep also endorsed Winfrey. "At the same time, politics is ridiculous right now".
