Oprah at the Golden Globes: Is she running for president? She should!

  • Five things to look at this Sunday on the Golden Globes

Friends have been urging her to run for office for months, according to the news station. King asked "Do have a vice presidential candidate in mind?"

In my career what I've always tried my best to do, whether on television or through film, is to say something about how men and women really behave, to say how we experience shame, how we love and how we rage, how we fail, how we retreat, persevere, and how we overcome.

The only fly in the ointment?

"I like Oprah. I don't think she's going to run".

"To the media, the left in this country, Oprah apparently is their chosen one, she's the new messiah that they'll blindly worship and follow like the sheep they are", Hannity said.

But fevered speculation only escalated.

After slamming NBC News for its deleted "OUR future president" tweet about Oprah, and using it to take more shots at the network, Hannity then derided "private jet liberals" over their "newfound political affection for Oprah". In 1999, he said Winfrey would be his running mate if he ran for the presidency - even though he did not run. It's a possibility, according to her partner, Stedman Graham. "She would absolutely do it".

"I'd beat Oprah. Oprah would be a lot of fun", Mr Trump told reporters during a meeting at the White House.

"I do think she's intrigued by the idea; I do think that. But now she doesn't have a choice".

"We welcome the challenge, whether it be Oprah Winfrey or anybody else", said Mr Hogan Gidley.

Amid growing speculation over Oprah's potential political ambitions, Mr Trump's daughter and economic adviser Ivanka tweeted her support for her "empowering and inspiring" speech.

A March 2017 poll by Quinnipiac University that handed Mr Trump a 41 per cent job approval rating said 52 per cent of respondents had a favourable opinion of Ms Winfrey.

Raised in Nashville, Milwaukee and MS, 63-year-old Winfrey was raped and sexually abused as a child and became pregnant aged 14, but miscarried the baby.

Wearing a black gown to show support for victims, she used her platform to promote the "Time's Up" movement against sexual harassment and assault, throwing her support behind others who have exposed sexual misconduct in Hollywood and elsewhere in politics and the media.

At the start of the Golden Globes on Sunday, host Seth Meyers playfully encouraged her to run against Trump. Her epic acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award is now also moving markets.

Winfrey told the audience: "For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dared to speak their truth to the power of those men, but their time is up".
