Trump Says He Doesn't Think Winfrey Will Run

Soon after Winfrey made the speech Twitter users went wild over the barnstorming speech joking that the former talk show host should make a run in 2020 Van Jones: If Oprah runs, 'she will destroy anybody in front of her'

The emotional and barnstorming speech set off fevered speculation online that this could be construed as her first campaign speech.

Presidential daughter and White House senior advisor Ivanka Trump took to Twitter on Monday to join the chorus of praise for Oprah as she exhorted both women and men to unite and say "times up", referring to a Hollywood-led movement against harassment. I'm assuming she'd run as a Democrat, since that's where her worldview and sensibilities best fit.

A majority of voters, 52%,-said they viewed her favorably, including a whopping 72% favorable vs. 7% unfavorable rating among Democratic voters, an optimistic sign for a potential Democratic primary.

"It's up to the people...she would absolutely do it", Graham told the Los Angeles Times.

However, this was not enough to dampen the excitement of the people.

Last fall Winfrey dismissed the notion of running for president. Her longtime partner suggested that she could be persuaded.

Trump said at the time: "If she'd do it, she'd be fantastic. If she runs, she will destroy anyone in front of her".

"I don't think she had any intention of declaring", she added. But now she doesn't have a choice, ' Streep said.

The rain triggered massive mudslides . "This looks photoshopped", DeGeneres says showing the photo on the screen behind her. Our hearts go out to DeGeneres. "In addition to what's going on in Montecito , I lost my dad this week", DeGeneres said.

If the speculation is wishful thinking, Winfrey's fame and wealth, extraordinary personal story overcoming poverty, child sexual abuse and pregnancy to build a $2.8 billion fortune and Oscar-nominated acting career, the scales would definitely tilt in her favour. "She is probably the most beloved carbon-based life-form on this Earth". On the one hand, Trump's abysmal performance in office proves, as if it needed proving, that experience is a good thing for a president to have.

The 64-year-old media mogul has become a cultural phenomenon.

Winfrey, 63, received a lifetime achievement award at NBC's Golden Globes ceremony, becoming the first black woman to receive that award.

The recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award mentioned Taylor during her powerful acceptance speech at the Golden Globes Sunday - But who is she? "They threatened to kill her if she ever told anyone".

Wow, it looks like "a new day is on the horizon!". He said, "There may be an equation here where the only thing that can beat a celebrity is another celebrity". "I think Oprah would be great".

But if politics is a money game, then the odds are still long.

Another tweeted: 'I mean, it's been fun to joke about Oprah running for president, but that speech really was presidential.
