Are Trump and Republicans afraid of Oprah? They're acting like it

The 54-year-old singer took it one step further, captioning the meme that Winfrey knew about the various sexual misconduct allegations against Weinstein.

"President Trump said Tuesday that he'd 'beat Oprah" if talk show host Oprah Winfrey faced off against him in the 2020 presidential election'.

LINDA MOTTRAM: So what sort of a candidate would she be in terms of, I guess, campaigning but also in policy terms? She had read it to me for time, but it was the type of thing where she knew she had a message to deliver.

Since then, her tweets about weight loss on the program have kept the shares up, which nearly quadrupled past year.

The survey also found that Winfrey is the favored candidate of women, with 52% of the women polled stating that they'd vote for her, while 43% of men favor current President Donald Trump.

Going on he said campaigning against her would be "a lot of fun". She's not thinking that, 'Oh, since I did this speech, I qualify to be president or I even want to be president'.

"No, I absolutely don't think that her position has changed, I don't", she said on her show, referring to Winfrey's 2017 statement that she has no intention of running for political office.

"I think it is something that Oprah would have to feel and sense for herself".

It's not surprising Oprah's stirring Golden Globes Awards show speech has stirred speculation about her running for president.

Her speech on the #MeToo movement at Sunday's Golden Globes propelled Winfrey to the forefront of political conversation on Monday, with the potential to disrupt the Democratic primary process and pose a strong challenge to Trump in 2020. I mean, she is popular, she is brilliant, she is a wonderful woman.

In 1988, Trump appeared on the "Oprah Winfrey Show" to promote his then just-released business book-cum-memoir, "The Art of the Deal".

His only concern, he told her, was whether she could handle success because he had watched people in the television business "push their success up their nose".

"She really did want to speak to young girls around the country", King said. Winfrey said a new day is on the horizon.

'I think Oprah would be great. "I thought they'd be talking about it because I knew it was going to be good". I do think that. To all the powerful men out I say your times up.
