White House would welcome 2020 Oprah challenge

If that is the case, Meyers told Winfrey during the awards show: "So if that's true, I just want to say: Oprah, you will never be president! I like Oprah and I also like Donald Trump, but as TV personalities not as the President of the United States of America". "But now she doesn't have a choice". In fact, President Trump himself mentioned her as a potential running mate when he mulled a bid in 1999.

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. Winfrey's mentions on Twitter, including "she's running", are approaching almost one million, according to data from the social media site. Well, her long-time companion, Stedman Graham, did not tamp down speculation. "She would absolutely do it", he said.

"I slept on it and came to the conclusion that the Oprah thing isn't that insane", tweeted Dan Pfeiffer, a former senior advisor to Barack Obama, the president whom Winfrey was credited with helping to elect in 2008.

The network received widespread criticism for the tweet on social media, with commentators saying it demonstrated serious impartiality.

Weeks after the election, Winfrey signaled that President Donald Trump's 2016 victory may have been her "aha moment".

"That's what I thought", Winfrey responded. "I thought, 'Oh gee, I don't have the experience, I don't know enough.' And now I'm thinking, 'Oh'".

"You need a star - a grand, outsized, fearless star whom Trump can neither intimidate nor outshine", ran the editorial. The question is: "Would she want to?"

Raised in Nashville, Milwaukee and MS, she was raped as a 14-year-old by an uncle and became pregnant, until she miscarried the baby.

Iran warns world to prepare for U.S. nuke deal withdrawal

Oprah Winfrey's speech rocked the Golden Globes Sunday evening, fueling speculation that the influential media mogul could have her sights set on the 2020 presidential race.

"We miss that woman", Janney said of Winfrey, who ended her eponymous talk show in 2011.

At the start of the Golden Globes on Sunday, host Seth Meyers playfully encouraged Winfrey to run against Trump.

Oprah Winfrey arrives with the Cecil B. DeMille Award in the press room during The 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel, Jan. 7, 2018, in Beverly Hills, Calif. "I trust her not to engage in daily Twitter screeds and insults; I trust that she will take the job seriously". Winfrey concluded dramatcially, calling attention to Recy Taylor, a black woman who was gang-raped and beaten by six white men in 1944; she died ten days ago, at 97 years old.

Would the electorate be ready to put not just another television star but another political outsider in the White House?

What she lacks is political experience.

But if politics is a money person's game, then the odds are still out.
