Speculation on Oprah presidential bid boosts Weight Watchers shares

Activists for the Democratic Party are speculating over the possibility that Oprah Winfrey will run for the U.S. presidency in 2020, following her impassioned speech at the Golden Globes. Trevor Noah can see it.

In a television interview early past year, Winfrey indicated that Trump's election had changed her mind about whether she lacked experience for America's highest office. After receiving the Cecil B. DeMille award for lifetime achievement, she delivered a well-received speech that rekindled rumours she'll run for president in 2020.

Just days into 2018, the race for the USA presidency in 2020 is already making headlines.

During a 2008 rally for the candidate, Winfrey said she was "not here for partisan beliefs" and that over the years, she'd voted for as many Republicans as she had Democrats. When she raised her volume and used repetition to declare the end of the era when powerful men could abuse women with impunity - "But their time is up. They're the complete opposite!"

"I don't; I don't", she said, according to the report. She had Donald Trump, this was before politics, her last week.

It often takes an Oprah Winfrey, someone undisputedly at the top of the game, to drop the anvil.

Earlier in the evening, Winfrey had been asked to trim her speech by three minutes.

Back to reality. One big question is why Winfrey would even consider a presidential run.

"There is money around for Oprah, Michelle Obama and George Clooney - but the odds suggest The Donald is going to be hard to beat", said Rupert Adams, spokesman for global betting chain William Hill.

I'd like to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press Association because we all know that the press is under siege these days, but we also know that it is 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.

Howard tweeted: "Probably the most extraordinary & inspiring moment I've ever witnessed at an award show".

"Yesterday a tweet about the Golden Globes and Oprah Winfrey was sent by a third party agency for NBC Entertainment in real time during the broadcast", the network said.

So I want all the girls watching here and now to know that a new day is on the horizon! But we should also be mindful that many people have underestimated Winfrey during the course of her long career.
