Oprah's Golden Globes speech sparks speculation about presidential bid

President Donald Trump previously picked Oprah as a potential running mate.

Some of Winfrey's confidants have been privately urging her to run, the sources said. "Oprah would be a lot of fun. To say how we experience shame, how we love and how we rage, how we fail, how we retreat, persevere and how we overcome", she said, ending her speech by stating that "a new day is on the horizon".

"I think Oprah Winfrey would make an absolutely brilliant president", the Oscar-winning director said while speaking with The Guardian on Thursday.

Naturally, Twitter had quite a bit to say about Trump's confident stance.

The idea that media mogul Winfrey could run for the White House was sparked following her speech at the Golden Globe Awards in LA.

Mr. King said on "CBS This Morning" that the 63-year-old celebrity's past position that she was not interested in running for president remained unchanged.

Just days after the big awards show where numerous people who worked with Harvey Weinstein spoke out against sexual misconduct, Seal accused them all of being hypocrites and took aim at Oprah Winfrey specifically. I urge all of us to not only support survivors and bystanders who are courageous enough to tell their truth, but to promote restorative justice.

He added: "She'd be sort of like me".

As a woman, it's terrifying and I think Winfrey gave a speech that empowers all women to speak up and be strong. "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". And she had Donald Trump and my family, it was very nice.

However, if Winfrey does decide to run for president, she already has a wealth of people willing to help her with her campaign.

Asked if Winfrey had the right set of skills to run the country, Spielberg pointed out: "Does our current president have the skill set to be president?" She wasn't writing this thinking, 'I'm going to launch my presidential campaign, ' which, by the way, she's not even thinking about having a presidential campaign.

The former queen of daytime television, multi-billionaire, philanthropist and actress - and that's just some of her titles - was mum while her closest friends were divided on the issue. The question is, do they want her for their President and that's more of a stamped traditional political question.
