"I don't think at this point she is actually considering it", said Winfrey's best friend Gayle King, who is also a television personality.

As for what humbles her, the media mogul referred to her award before explaining that even she was surprised to receive the coveted honor.

Liberal activists, journalists, and celebrities lambasted first daughter Ivanka Trump after she praised Oprah Winfrey's speech at the Golden Globe on Sunday, saying that Trump's support for women is hypocritical because her father has been accused of sexual misconduct.

The powerful address to Hollywood's gathered aristocracy by the actor, entrepreneur and campaigner prompted speculation about a run for president against Donald Trump in 2020 after she spoke out against sexual harassment and in favour of press freedom. "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, to tyrants and victims, and secrets and lies".

Oprah concluded with one last piece of advice for the future generation of Hollywood. He says he "would love" to have her as a running mate. That's why it feels so authentic, it's 'cause it actually is!

Millions of American were inspired by Oprah Winfrey's strong words at the Golden Globes on Sunday night-and roughly 24 hours later, Ivanka Trump basically said, #MeToo. "She would absolutely do it". "Her speech at the #GoldenGlobes tonight was presidential". "A new day is on the horizon", she said.

"If she wants to do it, she can do it", Jones said to Anderson Cooper on "AC360".

Winfrey, in September and October, publicly dismissed the notion of seeking the nation's highest office, though she noted that Trump's victory made her rethink the requirements of the office. So if that's true, I just want to say: Oprah, you will never be president! "For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dared to speak their truth to the power of those men, but their time is up". "Dear #Oprah, America needs you now more than ever".

And it was notable that numerous men who won awards did not mention the current soul-searching that Hollywood is undergoing regarding sexual harassment and the role of women in entertainment. Before she announced the victor for Best Motion Picture, the legendary Barbara Streisand took a moment to chide the Golden Globes for ignoring female directors. She's a terrific woman.

A March 2017 poll by Quinnipiac University that handed Trump a 41 percent job approval rating, said 52 percent of respondents had a favorable opinion of Winfrey.
