As Democrats encouraged Winfrey to consider a bid, her best friend, CBS News host Gayle King, said Tuesday that Winfrey is "intrigued" by the idea.
Afterwards, the hashtags #Oprahforpresident and #Oprah2020 began trending on Twitter. He jokingly forbade Winfrey from considering the presidency. Constitutionally speaking, tens of millions of Americans meet the basic qualifications, Winfrey included. "You're not separate, you're never gonna be detached from what's happening in the White House right now".
The Speech touched on female and black empowerment, her roots in poverty and support of those who speak up about sexual abuse and harassment.
Actress Alyssa Milano and others quickly chimed in, pointing out that Ivanka Trump's tweet doesn't mention that her father faces accusations of sexual misconduct by several women.
While there have been rumblings about a potential Winfrey presidential candidacy for years, they have gained traction since the election of Trump, a real-estate developer turned reality-TV star.
Oprah isn't doing any of that stuff yet. "Oprah will be lots of fun", Trumptold reporters during a meeting with bipartisan lawmakers on immigration on Tuesday, 9 January. "In 2011, I told some jokes about our current president at the White House Correspondents Dinner - jokes about how he was unqualified to be president - and some have said that night convinced him to run". That means clearly articulating progressive public policy goals in the way that Bill Clinton and Barack Obama both excelled at. The traditional "qualifications" required long political careers with the presidency as a pinnacle. The Oprah scene appears in Season 1, Episode 9 of the series, called "Return of the King".
Sounds like the perfect candidate for the Party of Science! She spent decades building emotional connections with Americans through her daytime talk show. "I'd love to have Oprah".
But what do the actual experts say? "You get a car!" platform might not be far off the mark. If he succeeds, then he'll win re-election.
Frankly, that's a bit hard to swallow.
