Her best friend, CBS News host Gayle King, said Tuesday that Winfrey is "intrigued" by the idea of a White House bid.
As much as Oprah benefited from the rapture she excited in an auditorium packed with Hollywood stars, the blatant hypocrisy and vapid virtue-signaling on display at the Golden Globes was a reminder of the Democratic party's fatal weakness: It is adored by coastal elites but is clueless about the feelings and needs of the rest of the country. He then shared his opinion that he didn't think Winfrey would run but that she "would be a lot of fun". "I do think that the speech was a different moment for her.She knew that she met the moment, but the reaction to the speech has been sort of overwhelming to her".
"Yeah, I'll beat Oprah", Mr Trump said.
Winfrey fueled speculation that she could look to mount a campaign in a rousing, almost 10-minute speech at the Golden Globes on Sunday. No way, says political prognosticator Donald Trump.
Trump has already shown that voters aren't looking for the flawless political résumé in a president, so Winfrey won't need to prove that a successful entertainer and media executive can run the country.
"She loves this country and would like to be of service in some way, but I don't think she's actively considering it at this time", King said, noting that she spoke to Winfrey at length the night before. "You know, I did one of her last shows".
President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka is endorsing Oprah Winfrey's message, if not a political future, in a recent tweet.
"I have people calling me - very important names that I won't name - who said, 'I will be her campaign manager". She was born into a poor home in MS but broke through as a television news and talk show personality in the 1980s. Nonetheless, the spectacle of an entertainment industry condemning Trump while having enabled sexual predators for decades is an albatross that Winfrey will have to shed if she is to make the leap from theoretical front-runner to a candidate who can actually win the presidency.
Winfrey gave an impassioned speech Sunday night at the Golden Globes that has sparked talk about whether she might run for president. I do think that.
Oprah has always been associated with Democratic politics and fundraising and was a vocal early supporter of former president Barack Obama. I will quit my job and campaign for her.
On the show Tuesday morning, King said she "was up talking to [Winfrey] very late last night".
It's true that if she enters the political arena, Winfrey's status as a universally beloved figure will be revoked.
Some political operatives think she has what it takes to be a viable presidential contender.
