President Oprah? Golden Globes speech sparks rumours of 2020 run

UNITED STATES TELEVISION network NBC has apologised after it sent a tweet during the Golden Globes last night calling Oprah Winfrey "OUR future president".

"And here's why. The media and the left in this country, well, they now seem to think Oprah is the one person that can help them fulfill their ultimate goal-to destroy Donald Trump and defeat President Trump", he added.

Oprah Winfrey is a veteran talk show host and media mogul, with Forbes estimating her net worth at $2.8 billion.

He recalled that he and his family appeared on Oprah's TV show in its final week. She proclaimed - in what sounds like a pretty good campaign slogan - "a new day is on the horizon!" and spoke of a time "when nobody ever has to say "me too" again".

"This should cover you for about two weeks".

As soon as Oprah Winfrey concluded her powerful speech at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night, a lot of people had thoughts, which mostly went something like this: "So, she's running for president, right?"

"I think lessons we all learned from watching Hillary's run, and how her ambition was unfavourably and unfairly viewed, coupled with Oprah's existing popularity, could give Oprah a strong start", Palmieri said.

"If she'd do it, she'd be fantastic, she's brilliant, she's popular. she's a wonderful woman".

Mr Trump himself has lavished praise on her over the years, including in 2015 when he said he would consider her as a running mate on his Republican ticket.

When Oprah Winfrey's partner Stedman Graham said she "would absolutely" run for the White House if prompted by the people, he misheard the question, Winfrey's best friend Gayle King said. If she wanted this sort of deafening political buzz to stop, she could stop it with a single issued statement - something Shermanesque like, "If drafted, I will not run; if nominated, I will not accept; if elected, I will not serve". Now, I'll tell you, it's interesting.

She tweeted: "I love Oprah. she made me so proud to be a woman!" 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.

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.
