Oprah was once Trump's pick for vice president

Oprah was once Trump's pick for vice president

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.

And will Oprah really run for president?

The media mogul's impassioned speech is seriously a must-see. We break down what's behind the polar temperatures that gripped the east coast over the weekend and the upcoming warm-up.

"I'll beat Oprah", Trump said of the Oscar-nominated actress and talk show host.

But it was her support of women calling out sexual harassment that fueled talk among Democrats in states where presidential runs usually begin, Iowa and New Hampshire. And no wonder there are already calls by liberals for "Oprah in 2020". We lived in the blank white spaces at the edge of print. For her part, Winfrey, who has been in the TV business for almost 40 years, paused for dramatic effect.

She proclaimed - in what sounds like a pretty good campaign slogan - "a new day is on the horizon!" and spoke of a time "when nobody ever has to say "me too" again".

Sanders was also asked whether she believed Winfrey was qualified to run for president.

Winfrey's feminist speech, which promised young women viewers that "a new day is on the horizon", stole the show at the January 7 awards ceremony, the Daily Mail notes.

Last fall Winfrey dismissed the notion of running for president. I applaud and stand by the courageous actresses that continue to brake [sic] the circle of abuse through their actions and their style choice. She reflected on the press and the importance of uncovering the truth. "Oh!'" she said in March 2017, during an interview with David Rubenstein on Bloomberg.

In the movie, the woman torches the police department and severely burns one of the police officers (a guy whose behavior was so bad throughout the movie that you are supposed to think he deserved it).

Winfrey said while there was no justice for Taylor, whose attackers were never prosecuted, her truth lived on in the work of civil rights icon Rosa Parks, an ACLU investigator on Taylor's case. Each of us in this room is celebrated because of the stories that we tell, and this year we became the story.
