Oprah 2020? People Are Asking After Golden Globes Speech

Oprah 2020? People Are Asking After Golden Globes Speech

Others pointed out the irony of the first daughter's belated praise for the speech given the talk that Winfrey might consider challenging her father for the presidency in 2020. Bringing a room full of Hollywood's elite to their feet several times during the speech, Winfrey addressed the Me Too movement head on, lighting up social media with the hashtag #Oprah2020.

She added: 'I've interviewed and portrayed people who've withstood some of the ugliest things life can throw at you, but the one quality all of them seem to share is an ability to maintain hope for a brighter morning, even during our darkest nights.

"I$3 t's the insatiable dedication to uncovering the absolute truth that keeps us from turning a blind eye to corruption and to injustice".

Some Democrats - still reeling from Hillary Clinton's shock loss to Trump in 2016 - have embraced the idea of having their own celebrity candidate. "I don't - I don't", the 63-year-old billionaire said.

Oprah Winfrey's best friend, Gayle King, is downplaying any suggestion that Winfrey might run for president.

Oprah ended her speech with another powerful reminder: "So I want all the girls watching here and now to know that a new day is on the horizon!"

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders was also drawn into the speculation on January 9 about a potential Winfrey candidacy. In fact, President Trump himself mentioned her as a potential running mate when he mulled over a bid in 1999.

Sanders was also asked whether she believed Winfrey was qualified to run for president. Most people would probably agree, she's a pretty good egg. "Is she a successful individual?"

The White House said Trump would "welcome" a challenge by Winfrey. "But that would be something she would have to determine and lay out if she made a decision to run".

The responses to Ivanka's tweet were mixed, with some scratching their heads and pointing out that if she wanted to be an advocate against sexual assault and harassment, she would have supported the women who accused her famous father, Donald Trump, of assault.

She fired off a furious tweet saying: "Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black at the Golden Globes in a silent protest".

But not everyone was happy with the message, which came in contrast to the complete erasure of Pride Month celebrations in the White House calendar.
