"We also know it's the insatiable dedication to uncovering the absolute truth that keeps us from turning a blind eye to corruption and to injustice", she added, in an obvious dig at regular media critic Trump. She's said before that it's not something she was interested in, but some people are thinking (or hoping?) that the events of the last couple of years may have convinced her to go for it.

"I would not vote for Oprah because I don't think president should be your first job in government", an observer said.

Oprah Winfrey used her acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award at the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards to lambast those responsible for racial injustice and sexual abuse.

In a 1999 interview with Larry King, Trump told the host that he "loves Oprah", and that she "would always be [his] first choice" as running mate. King suggested, however, that the actress was "intrigued" by the idea.

"If that inspired you then you should also check out what your dad said on a bus in 2005", added Tony Posnanski.

A White House spokesman responded to the prospect of a Winfrey challenge of Trump. The host of the Golden Globes, late-night comedian Seth Meyers, jokingly urged Winfrey to run in his opening monologue, noting that President Donald Trump had reportedly decided to make his bid for the office after he was the butt of Meyers' jokes at the White House Correspondents Dinner in 2011. "This is not someone who doesn't think what her words and her actions will mean". She and most people at the awards wore black to show support for Time's Up anti-sexual harassment and pro-equality in the workplace fundraising campaign.

Jones said many Americans are concerned about growing hatred and intolerance and Winfrey could bring a "values-based front for inclusion and tolerance" to the country.

"Is she a successful individual?"

"I'll tell you, she's really a great woman".

Ivanka has made paid family leave one of her goals since becoming First Daughter in her quest for women's rights.

President Donald Trump's daughter, Ivanka, is endorsing Oprah Winfrey's message, if not a political future, in a recent tweet. The problem with that is that last night at the Golden Globes, there were just too many! "So we chose to come together to say "Time's Up" on the imbalance of power".
