Oprah 2020? People Are Asking After Golden Globes Speech

Golden Globes  YouTube

"I got goosebumps", she also told The Times.

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.

Golden Globes host Seth Meyers stood before Oprah Winfrey, who was set to receive the Cecil B. DeMille award Sunday night and was sitting in the very front of the room.

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.

With a cutting stare, presenter Natalie Portman followed Winfrey's speech by introducing, as she said, "the all-male" nominees for best director. "What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have", an emotional Winfrey said, opening her remarks by recalling watching Sidney Poitier accept the Academy Award for Best Actor in 1964. "A new day is on the horizon".

She quoted directly from Margaret Atwood's novel of the same name, which the series is based on: "We were the people who were not in the papers. I trust her not to engage in daily Twitter screeds and insults; I trust that she will take the job seriously".

Holding court in the VIP row of tables up front, Winfrey sat with Gayle King and Wrinkle in Time director Ava DuVernay, their seats turned toward the stage, where word of the internet campaign reached her.

The tweet said 'Nothing but respect for OUR future president, ' and included a short video of Oprah at the awards Sunday night, which was broadcast by NBC.

Pakistan promises 'cold-blooded' response to Trump's abrupt aid cut
The State Department's declaration signalled growing frustration over Pakistan's co-operation in fighting terrorist networks. In his tweets , Trump blamed Pakistani leaders of covering up their misdeeds with "lies and deceit".

Winfrey said the #MeToo movement transcends culture, geography, race, religion, politics and workplace, from farm fields to tech fields.

"I will never have to know the answer to that, because I will never run for public office", she said. She would absolutely do it'.

In response to a Seth Meyers joke about Winfrey at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night, NBC tweeted "Nothing but respect for OUR future president" to almost 1.8 million followers.

Barbra Streisand also used her presenting slot to express outrage that she remains the only woman to win the best director award at the ceremony - and that was back in 1984.

The first award of the night, perhaps fittingly, went to one of Hollywood's most powerful women: Nicole Kidman, for her performance in HBO's "The Big Little Lies", a series she and Reese Witherspoon also produced. If you needed a new roof put on your house and somebody came to you saying, "I'm a computer programmer, not a roofer", going on to explain that the roofing business is a mess and all you need is some outside-the-box thinking to make your roof better than ever, you'd be a fool to hire him.

"For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men", she said to a standing ovation. "Even I am now starting to think the rules have changed about running for president". As a young Black woman in Alabama in 1944, she suffered a horrific, hate-motivated sexual assault that was never solved. They are domestic workers and farm workers. News of host Catt Sadler, who says she left after discovering she was making nowhere near the money her male co-host was making. "I thought, 'Oh gee, I don't have the experience, I don't know enough".

"She's lost her mind now", Winfrey said.
