Winfrey highlights story of black woman raped by white men

President Oprah? Icon talks truth, justice and 'a new day' in Golden Globes speech

But in a post-Trump political landscape, that traditional path may not matter.

In recent years, Winfrey has lent her star power to endorse Democratic presidential candidates: Barack Obama when he was seeking to become the first black USA president in 2008 and Hillary Clinton in her campaign against Trump in 2016.

Winfrey has been incredibly open about her personal life, on her talk show and also with her endorsement of Weight Watchers, the diet program in which she bought a stake in 2015.

Over the years, Winfrey has spoken countless times about motivation and passion in business, as well as how she maintains motivation to make that next move. Forbes estimates she is worth $3.0 billion compared to $3.5 billion for Trump.

But some would argue the similarities end there. And if thats true, I would just like to say, Oprah, you will never be president.

"I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon!"

The thought that the US's first female president would be black is an exciting one, as well as the notion that Winfrey would knock Trump from his prime-time position.

In fact, sources close to Oprah have shared that she is "actively thinking" about running during the 2020 election.

"All this stuff about what people usually do is out the window", he said.

55% of the likely voters had a "favorable" impression of Oprah, with 27% finding her "very favorable". "Oprah Winfrey just fired a warning flare in the sky for anyone who still doesn't get that the parties no longer control their own nominations".

Oprah Winfrey's best friend, Gayle King, is downplaying any suggestion that Winfrey might run for president. She's somebody that's very special.

Rather than have it taking up resources during the console development and not it not being able to have our full attention on it. This will happen until the console version is completely ready and essentially " out the door ".

Of course, no one will know if Oprah plans to join the presidential race as a Democratic candidate until after the 2018 midterms, but fans have shown that she'd have plenty of supporters in the entertainment industry.

"Oprah. I love Oprah".

Still, while some Democrats would embrace Winfrey's outsider-celebrity status as the party's answer to Trump, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., noted that Winfrey, like Trump, lacks any kind of experience in government.

Nominating Oprah would be, in effect, to say Democrats will respond to a uniquely unqualified and dangerous-to-the-country billionaire celebrity president (now, according to the Wall Street Journal, apparently considering a targeted strike at North Korea that would deliver a "bloody nose" but not a bloody response) by nominating a vastly better, almost-certainly-not-dangerous billionaire celebrity candidate who speaks in well-formed sentences and tends not to say, like, like.

Her role at CBS News would conflict with any serious exploration of a presidential run.

Let's put aside the fact that it's kind of awesome that everyone isn't yet worn out by the idea of a celebrity running for office and take a quick look at some of the things that might make her an interesting candidate.

"There is nothing I want less", said Kathleen D. Trombley.

Meyers' reference to Winfrey came when he noted that Trump reportedly chose to run for president after Meyers and Barack Obama made a joke at Trump's expense during the White House Correspondents Association dinner in 2011. She's a terrific woman.

Her speech has now been watched more than 1.5 million times, but Winfrey's power goes well beyond yesterday's performance. I got a lot of things going, she's got a lot of things going.

"Well, it turns out that being Barack Obama turns out to be a pretty good gig", he said, acknowledging that he didn't feel he needed to be president to complete himself.
