Media Mogul Oprah Winfrey Draws US Presidential Interest

HFPA 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards Screening and After Party

Once the reaction to Oprah Winfrey's Golden Globes speech shifted to calls for a presidential run, and the media began asking if Winfrey was looking to get in the 2020 race, you just knew the backlash from Fox News' opinion hosts was right around the corner.

The speech prompted speculation that Oprah may be considering running for the presidency in 2020.

Oprah has not commented on the buzz around a potential run, but her long-time partner Stedman Graham told The Los Angeles Times she would "absolutely" do it, while sources close to the star told CNN she is considering the possibility of a political bid.

It often takes an Oprah Winfrey, someone undisputedly at the top of the game, to drop the anvil. When she raised her volume and used repetition to declare the end of the era when powerful men could abuse women with impunity - "But their time is up".

Update 10:25 a.m. January 8: Two friends, who were not identified, told CNN on Monday that Oprah Winfrey is "actively thinking" about running for president. The boost comes amid rising speculation that Winfrey could have aspirations for a United States presidential run, despite her denial during a backstage interview.

"I thought" "I don't know how I can".

"In 1944, Recy Taylor was a young wife and mother walking home from a church service she'd attended in Abbeville, Alabama, when she was abducted by six armed white men, raped, and left blindfolded by the side of the road coming home from church". But her message - "A new day is on the horizon" - sounded like a campaign rallying cry. It would require almost three years of grinding hard work - and in the end she might win, which would mean four more years of oppressive labor and crushing responsibility. Quincy Jones said it was "an honour" to support Winfrey after she thanked him in her speech. Actor Natasha Rothwell also weighed in, reminding Ivanka of the accusations against her dad, as did author Michael Wolff, who said, "Who does she think her father is?" To which Trump replied: "Oprah, I love Oprah".

It is not the first time that Winfrey's name has been associated with a White House.

"After last night's speech, all of these private jet liberals are all showing off their newfound political affection for Oprah". However, the Internet hasn't exactly taken kindly to her message with many wondering if she remembered what her father, Donald Trump stands accused of.
