Oprah Responds To Rumours She's Planning To Run For President

Golden Globes Recap

Golden Globes Recap

If she runs, I'll be able to re-use all of my "Munificent Sun-King" and "he stepped down into the presidency" jokes from the Obama years. "You always have the right to change your mind".

NBC tweeted a picture of a smiling Winfrey under the message, "Nothing but respect for our future president".

Following the inspirational speech, "Oprah 2020" started trending on Twitter, as people wondered (and hoped) the star had plans on running for presidency in the next United States election. But the television star never did anything like that.

If Donald Trump made it clear that a person with high name recognition who sells a coherent narrative to a core demographic can get elected president, irrespective of his total lack of qualifications or relevant experience or knowledge or intelligence, the longing for a charismatic left-liberal celebrity who can reorient America's political compass goes back at least to the Reagan era.

Xbox One Is Getting A New "Do Not Disturb" Feature
Mini Game Hubs provide an easy way to see friends who are now playing, upcoming Achievements, Looking for Group posts, and more. Apparently, Microsoft is looking to update Xbox Achievements with a new "Careers" system and other special Avatar bonuses.

"A lot of people think Oprah belongs in government".

"You know, I was up talking to her very late last night".

Trump's job approval rating sat at just 32 per cent in December, according to an Associated Press-NORC poll. Am I the only one that had that feeling? "I don't think at this point she's actually considering it".

Even so, for Democrats in early voting states, and perhaps for a public that largely disapproves of Trump's job performance, the notion of a popular media figure as a presidential candidate is not as unusual as it once seemed.

Nicole's shout out to Keith leaves people in tears
She won her fourth Golden Globe award last night and didn't forget to thank the country music star during her acceptance speech . We all know that one of the most baffling moments of the Oscars previous year was Nicole Kidman's weird, weird seal clap.

If true, it would indicate Winfrey's warmed to the idea since October, when she told King, "There will be no running for office of any kind". "At the same time, politics is ridiculous right now".

"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", continued Winfrey, who became the first African-American woman to be honored with the Golden Globes' Cecil B. DeMille Award. "I don't." But some close to her were quoted Monday saying she is thinking about it. "But now she doesn't have a choice", said Streep. Or is she secretly a Democrat who hates her father? "If it means looking at one of these celebrities that have a moral core, that are compassion and intelligent, I think that people should look to where they can during these very, very hard times".

Ivanka Trump has been mocked for backing Oprah Winfrey's "inspiring" speech praising women for speaking out against sexual harassment.
