Actors and activists: Golden Globes aims for change

It's highly unlikely that Oprah will run in 2020 but the real objective is to keep this same enthusiasm when it comes time to go out and make our voices heard election day.

But the longtime media proprietor, talk show host and actress has not indicated she would seek the presidency.

"Oprah would be a lot of fun", the president told reporters at the White House. "I tried many, many times to explain what a moment like that means to a little girl", she said. "I don't... I don't", the 63-year-old billionaire said when she was told that "Oprah 2020" and "Oprah For President" were trending on Twitter. Those under 40 are far more likely to choose Winfrey over Trump as the nation's next president than their elders are.

She continued, "And so my teachers - I would say this to anybody in this room - you have no idea of the power of noticing another human being and what it feels like when somebody knows that they have been seen, truly seen, by you". She later elaborated, telling People, "I was her practice audience. But she is a figure large enough, culturally, that when she gives a speech like that in that setting, people stand up and pay attention". Those individuals note that approval ratings tend to crash immediately once an individual announces their intent to run for office, and point to her lack of legislating experience as a potential liability for her. It's weird. And Lord knows when Black women try to lead, y'all attempt to silence and erase us.

"Right now, Oprah's about 11:1, but keep in mind when Donald Trump ran he was 60:1 facing 16 opponents", he said. "But that would be something she would have to determine and lay out if she made a decision to run and what the campaign would look like".

I think she's been a plausible candidate at least since 2008 when she stumped for Barack Obama in the south, in the primary and possibly even longer than that.

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. For those reasons, she thanked Winfrey and duly congratulated her for receiving the Golden Globes Lifetime Achievement Award.

Winfrey has not yet openly commented about a presidential run.

What she said that night was extraordinary and strong, and it displayed her immedicable leadership ability.
