Oprah Winfrey's passionate and powerful Golden Globes speech gave rise to speculation that she'd run for president in 2020. The boost comes amid rising speculation that Winfrey could have aspirations for a United States presidential run, despite her denial during a backstage interview.

"Some of Winfrey's confidants have been privately urging her to run", the article reads. Ronald Reagan was an actor in Hollywood and Donald Trump was the face of a reality television show.

King was quick to point out, "Stedman would never so cavalierly say absolutely she would do it".

"It is not lost on me that at this moment there are some little girls watching as I become the first black woman to be given the same award", Winfrey said.

Weight Watchers, which was hammered by free fitness apps and years of subscriber losses, has mounted a comeback since Winfrey bought a stake, joined the board and agreed to pitch the brand in 2015.

The touchstone of Winfrey's speech was the #MeToo movement.

During her speech, she recalled being inspired as a child by previous Cecil B. DeMille award victor Sidney Poitier, the first black actor to win a best actor Oscar. She has ruled out in the past any hopes for running for president in 2020. She doesn't need to know how to launch a nuclear war. "I want her to run for president", Streep reportedly said after the show ended. And as much as I am impressed by Oprah, she should probably stay out of the line of fire. "But now she doesn't have a choice", said Streep.

As he wrapped up the event, a reporter asked "can you you beat Oprah?"

So is she running? "A new day is on the way".

Actress, movie and television producer, and chief executive of her OWN cable channel, Winfrey, 63, was celebrated as a role model for women and a person who has promoted strong female characters. She paid tribute to the press and the importance of press freedom as it faced new pressures from the President. "Whatever you do, though, Oprah, don't use emails!" Congratulations and all my love to you. She tweeted: "Congratulations Oprah".

"I am sure of one thing", Tyler Jones, a South Carolina Democratic strategist and founder of SPEAK Strategic, told Newsweek in an email on Monday. "You always have the right to change your mind". Many seemed to be stunned that Ivanka tweeted such a response. "This is their new savior", he said, adding: "Did any of them ever say a nice word about Trump?". "#United." Social media, including celebrities, quickly took to her mentions, reminding her that her father, Donald Trump is accused of harassment by sixteen women.

"So when I made a decision to talk with you, people around me were like, 'What's happened to you?'" she continued. Magnificent speech, magnificent career, magnificent woman!

"I don't consider myself political, and I seldom interview politicians", she said during a 2008 interview with then-presidential candidate Barack Obama, whom she provided with an endorsement and support on the campaign trail.
