Trump once said Oprah should be his VP

Oprah Winfrey is "intrigued" by the idea of running for US president, but she is not "actively considering" it right now, her best friend Gayle King said Tuesday. She was walking with friend, Fannie Daniel, 61, and Daniel's 18-year-old son, West, was with her, according to the New York Times.

Oprah Winfrey did more than just stir emotions last night (Jan. 7) at the Golden Globes.

"I have no problem with Oprah Winfrey".

The only fly in the ointment?

He said that these jokes about Trump may have been what convinced him to run for president.

But fevered speculation only escalated.

Some are suggesting she run for President in 2020. Would Oprah Winfrey make a good president?

"It's up to the people", Winfrey's longtime partner, Stedman Graham, told The Times. "She would absolutely do it".

"I want her to run", Meryl Streep told The Washington Post. I'm assuming she'd run as a Democrat, since that's where her worldview and sensibilities best fit. "But now she doesn't have a choice".

Earlier in the evening, Winfrey had been asked to trim her speech by three minutes.

Yesterday a tweet about the Golden Globes and Oprah Winfrey was sent by a third party agency for NBC Entertainment in real time during the broadcast. Since then, her tweets about weight loss on the program have buoyed the shares, which nearly quadrupled past year.

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. Ironically, Donald Trump - on many levels her antithesis - has legitimised the idea of a celebrity presidency (though arguably the ascent of actor Ronald Reagan to the highest office in the land set an early precedent) Democrats now have no one candidate who has emerged as a likely 2020 contender, making Winfrey a possible unifying candidate.

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. "If she runs, she's our nominee". Becoming the first black woman to accept the Cecil B. De Mille lifetime achievement award, her speech wove together gender, poverty and race.

"It is not lost on me that at this moment there are some little girls watching as I become the first black woman to be given the same award", Winfrey said.

If you wonder why anyone is taking the Oprah-for-president idea seriously, go back and listen to that speech.
