Gayle King on Oprah for president: 'I do think she's intrigued by the idea'


"I know her very well", Trump said.

I quickly told myself nah, no way, she wouldn't. In 2006, she selected his groundbreaking memoir, "Night", for her book club, pushing it back onto best-seller lists decades after its publication. BDS activists came to the magazine's office with a letter demanding Winfrey reject Leviev but were barred from entering.

She got her start anchoring local news in Baltimore and Nashville, Tennessee, in the 1970s and early 1980s.

Taken from 2000's The America We Deserve, he said that Oprah would make an excellent vice president. Also, "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King said Tuesday that while Oprah is "intrigued" by the idea of running, King doesn't think the TV mogul is considering it "at this time". But it wasn't quite a fair fight. "Really?", and bemoaned the "impossibly boring" current crop of major political figures, making people more likely to vote for celebrities like Trump or Winfrey.

If she went through the rigors of a presidential campaign, we'd find out. But the answer to those electoral failures isn't to stop caring about substance.

Oprah Winfrey's passionate and powerful Golden Globes speech gave rise to speculation that she'd run for president in 2020.

Trump had once cited Winfrey as his choice for a running mate when he was toying with running for the Reform Party presidential nomination for the 2000 election.

"I reject that Trump supporters have forfeited their right to cite others' lack of preparatory experience for presidential office". While Winfrey is a proven success in the areas of philanthropy, media and business, she lacks traditional political and policymaking experience.

What Oprah did was apparently enough to have Meryl demand she is elected President of the United States. "Their time is up".

"Oprah. I love Oprah". Ivanka caught a lot of flak on Twitter for her vague sentiment of solidarity with women while she continues to serve in the administration of her father, who has multiple accusations of sexual harrassment against him and spoke on audio tape about groping women without their consent.

O'DONNELL: "I'm going to ask you the same tough question that I ask guests on this show".

Explaining his viewpoint, Trump said "I know her very well". There are many other examples; Myleene Klass claims she was offered a sex contract in 2010!

"It's difficult to totally dismiss the idea of Winfrey 2020", says the Washington Post. It offered hope - a commodity that has been in desperately short supply.

The unceasing debate over Ivanka Trump is whether she is a clueless enabler or a savvy troll, jabbing her father with sly tweets. They knew how to work the political system, and they also knew how to sell.

Last fall Winfrey dismissed the notion of running for president.
