Our readers react: should Oprah run for president?

Meyers' reference to Winfrey came when he noted that Trump reportedly chose to run for president after Meyers and Barack Obama made a joke at Trump's expense during the White House Correspondents Association dinner in 2011.

But while talking about her speech backstage, Oprah revealed that she was very nervous on stage.

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.

"However she moves forward in 2020, she's helping the universe as it is already", Brown told Spencer. At the dinner, Meyers made some jokes about Trump's rumored plans to run for president, jokes which allegedly inspired Trump to go through the campaign.

It is in reference to a joke made during the monologue and not meant to be a political statement. "And some have said that night convinced him to run".

"In my career, what I've always tried my best to do, whether on television or through film, is to say something about how men and women really behave".

The joke prompted a laugh from Winfrey, 63, and her longtime partner, Stedman Graham, who later added fuel to the fire about Winfrey's possible presidential ambitions.

"It's up to the people", Graham told the Los Angeles Times. "She would absolutely do it".

"I say, I'm just glad I got through the speech!" she said, smiling as she referred to her Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award acceptance speech.

How to Watch Saints vs. Panthers
Cam Newton drove the Panthers down the field but was sacked on fourth down before he could throw the ball in the end zone. Newton's 56-yard touchdown pass to Christian McCaffrey cut the Saints lead to 31-26 with just over four minutes to play.

In September, columnist John Podhoretz wrote in the New York Post that Winfrey is "uniquely positioned, should she wish to commit herself, to seek the Democratic nomination for president and challenge Trump in 2020".

He beat contender Timothee Chalamet, who was a critical favourite for his portrayal of a young man in the midst of a sexual awakening in Call Me By Your Name.

Trump told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos in 2015, shortly after announcing his presidential bid, that a 2016 ticket of Trump for president and Winfrey for vice president would be a lock for the White House. "I thought, 'Oh gee, I don't have the experience, I don't know enough.' And now I'm thinking, 'Oh'". I'd love to have Oprah. "I can't get them to actually respond because a skilled politician knows how to give the answer they want".

The TV mogul and philanthropist took the moment to deliver the most moving-and important-speech of the night, in which she addressed the rampant sexual harassment and abuse allegations that plagued Hollywood in 2017, and how the tide is hopefully turning. "I trust her not to engage in daily Twitter screeds and insults; I trust that she will take the job seriously".

"It was somewhere in Rosa Parks" heart nearly 11 years later when she made the decision to stay seated on that bus in Montgomery", Winfrey said.

Winfrey's speech was the most Tweeted moment of the Golden Globes.

Only a few minutes into Sunday night's Golden Globes red-carpet broadcast on E!, Debra Messing explained to host Giuliana Rancic why almost all the women were wearing black.

But with all the eloquent speeches, none roused the room like Winfrey's, who had the crowd giving her repeated ovations as she issued a warning - not once, but three times - to powerful men who abuse women: "Their time is up!" "That woman has provided such a service to this country with her show and she was sort of this connective tissue between the people of America and what was going on in the world and what they need to focus on and open their minds to things".

Taylor became a catalyst in the movement to put an end to the racially-motivated rape and mistreatment of Black women following her own sexual assault at the hands of six white men in 1944. "I think one of the arguments against Oprah is 45".
