Winfrey delivered a powerful speech during Sunday night's Golden Globes after earning a lifetime achievement award, prompting several calls around the country for her to a mull a presidential bid in 2020. So if that's true, I just want to say: Oprah, you will never be president!
Winfrey, when asked backstage if she planned to run for president, replied, "I don't".
Trump himself has lavished praise on Winfrey over the years, including in 2015, when he said that he would consider her as a running mate on his Republican ticket.
Oil Prices Close To Three Year Highs
The rise in prices is expected to drive gains in USA production during 2018, offsetting curbs by others. Baker Hughes on Friday said the U.S. rig count dropped by five in the last week of the year.
Meanwhile, a Care2.com petition to draft her into running has gained 4,000 signatures since its launch on Monday.
"I don't think she's actively considering it at this time", King said.
In an interview after the show, Winfrey denied that she was considering a Presidential run, but her longtime companion, Stedman Graham, said that it would be up to the people, and Winfrey would "absolutely do it".
"Yesterday a tweet about the Golden Globes and Oprah Winfrey was sent by a third party agency for NBC Entertainment in real time during the broadcast", the network said. "A new day is on the way".
In the months after the congressional elections, halfway through Trump's four-year term, Democratic presidential challengers are likely to begin announcing their candidacies to run against him.
The culture that enabled Weinstein (and all the other celebrity abusers, some of whom probably put on a black shirt and solidarity pin for the ceremony and haven't had their moment in the sun yet) is the same culture that saw Recy Taylor get no justice against the men who raped her, and wait 67 years for an apology from the state. 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". 'I also know that after years of watching the Oprah show, you always have the right to change your mind'.
It is not the first time that Winfrey's name has been associated with a White House.
However, her remarks about being raised in poverty, empowerment of women and support for the press (under constant criticism by Trump), quickly prompted even some conservative political figures to speak positively of her as a potential candidate.
