Oprah Winfrey "Actively Thinking" About Running for President in 2020

"I also know that after years of watching the Oprah show, you always have the right to change your mind", King said.

Jones said there was "bedlam in Oprah Land" with people in her orbit begging her to consider, but he added she had given no indication she had moved off her prior position of not being interested in a White House run.

"People said, 'Oh yeah, she wrote that speech as a launching pad for what she wants to do.' That's absolutely not true", King said.

"I think one of the arguments for Oprah is 45", Pelosi said, referring to Trump in shorthand for the 45th president. Longtime Trump foe and prolific Twitter user Rosie O'Donnell also responded, tweeting "time is up vanky for u - daddy and jared - oprah knows - so do we ... awaken child - now or never".

On Sunday night, her acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes in Beverly Hills, California brought Hollywood to their feet and stirred speculation on social media that she could be publicly positioning herself for a political career.

He is not an Oprah superfan, and he never watched her eponymous show. She crafted the speech, she talked to an editor at the magazine and the two of them came up with it, but Oprah put down exactly what she wanted to say.

Kristol cited Winfrey's support for regime change in Iraq when Saddam Hussein was in power and her friendship with Allan Bloom, a conservative philosopher who was critical of the higher education system in the US, as reasons for why he admires her. Some of her confidants have been privately urging her to run, the sources said.

Winfrey's friends have been urging her to run partly because they fear that the Democrats have a weak bench of candidates.

The speech was still being rebroadcast and dissected on Tuesday morning talk shows.

Winfrey has told friends she is appalled by some of Trump's actions, but that she feels motivated to serve the country. But the media mogul told Bloomberg last March that Trump's election made her rethink ruling out the possibility. But he thinks it's the right time for Winfrey in the White House.
