Ivanka Trump praises Oprah's Golden Globes speech-Twitter goes in

Ivanka Trump praises Oprah's Golden Globes speech-Twitter goes in

"She loves this country and would like to be of service in some way, but I don't think she's actively considering it at this time", King said, noting that she had spoken to Winfrey at length the night before.

"Just saw @Oprah's empowering & inspiring speech at last night's #GoldenGlobes", Ivanka Trump tweeted Monday night.

Actor Tara Strong tweeted, "I'm sorry @IvankaTrump but unless you wish to call out your own father for his taped admission to assaulting women, your desire to join the sisterhood can not be taken with any validity ..."

The talk-show host, philanthropist, producer, actress and businesswoman is the first African Amercian woman to ever accept the Cecil B. DeMille Award, honouring her contribution to the world of entertainment.

Ivanka Trump has received backlash after praising Oprah Winfrey for her speech at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards. Let's not forget, her father Donald Trump was infamously caught on tape bragging about sexual assault ("grab them by the pussy") and has been accused of rape and harassment by multiple women. But, the drumbeat for her to make a presidential run was well underway.

The ever graceful and ever politically aware Emma Watson brought with her onto the red carpet Marai Larasi, the Executive Director of Imkaan, a black feminist organization that works to fight violence against women and girls. But in an awkward and tone-deaf turn of events, First Daughter Ivanka Trump gave her two cents about the speech - and now we're forced to ask: Girl, do you know what the speech is even about tho?!

The host of the Golden Globes, late-night comedian Seth Meyers, jokingly urged Winfrey to run in his opening monologue, noting that President Donald Trump had reportedly decided to make his bid for the office after he was the butt of Meyers's jokes at the White House Correspondents Dinner in 2011.

Actress Alyssa Milano and others quickly chimed in, pointing out that Ivanka Trump's tweet doesn't mention that her father faces accusations of sexual misconduct by several women. "They tried to get a woman to host this show, they really did", he said. They are domestic workers and farmworkers. "They are working in factories, and they work in restaurants, and they're in academia and engineering and medicine and science". "They're our athletes in the Olympics and they're our soldiers in the military", Oprah said.

Oprah Winfrey has done some pretty unbelievable things during her career, whether she's giving away cars to a whole studio full of people, or raising loads of money for charity. While it can't be denied that Oprah's speech came from the heart, perhaps there is possibility for larger plans in 2020. "She would absolutely do it".
