Oprah 2020? The Democratic unicorn-hunt launches with a little magical thinking

Sexual harassment campaign dominates 75th Golden Globes

And as much as I am impressed by Oprah, she should probably stay out of the line of fire.

"I never want to rule it out totally, because I really am exhausted of seeing what's happening with this country, how we're really making other people live like kings, and we're not", he said.

Oprah Winfrey is "intrigued" by the idea of running for USA president, but she is not "actively considering" it right now, her best friend Gayle King said Tuesday.

In 1999, he said Winfrey would be his running mate if he ran for the presidency - even though he did not run.

And though Winfrey would certainly seek the Democratic Party's nomination should she run, some of her views were praised by conservatives.

Oprah Winfrey accepted the Cecil B.de Mille Award at the 2018 Golden Globes on Sunday night.

When asked Monday aboard Air Force One about a potential high-profile general election opponent to President Donald Trump - namely, self-made billionaire media proprietor and philanthropist Oprah Winfrey - deputy White House spokesman Hogan Gidley responded, "We welcome the challenge, whether it be Oprah Winfrey or anybody else".

Are you in support of McGregor playing Obi-Wan again? The spin off was reported a year ago . This further points to a 2020 release date for the movie.

Trump on Monday, speaking to a national convention of farmers in Tennessee, did not mention Winfrey's name or make any reference to his re-election campaign. Let's not forget, her father Donald Trump was infamously caught on tape bragging about sexual assault ("grab them by the pussy") and has been accused of rape and harassment by multiple women. "She said she's not sure she wants to move into a smaller place". I do think this though, guys. I do think she's intrigued by the idea.

Winfrey, 64, has become a cultural phenomenon over the past 30-plus years, born into a poor home in MS but breaking through as a television news and talk show personality in the 1980s.

This isn't the first time she has attempted to shut down rumors of a future in politics, telling CBS back in October that it wouldn't happen.

"Our country's getting its confidence back again", Trump said of his almost one year in office.

"That said, given the choice between Oprah and our current president, I'm on the bus with Oprah travelling the country encouraging people to sign up and vote", he said. But she hasn't issued that statement. Maybe she'll play it by ear with a campaign announcement, too. That could soften what Palmieri describes as an enduring resistance among some voters to women with political ambition.

Winfrey, who spent the bulk of her career as a talk show host, proclaimed, 'a new day is on the horizon'.

Steve Peoples reported from NY.
