While many people praised Oprah Winfrey following her acceptance speech at the Golden Globes Sunday, singer Seal said that Winfrey was "part of the problem" in Hollywood with a scathing post on social media. "In 2011, I told some jokes about our current president at the White House Correspondents Dinner - jokes about how he was unqualified to be president - and some have said that night convinced him to run".
Oprah Winfrey made it clear she wants us to know this name: Recy Taylor. I do think she was intrigued by the idea. "I want her to run for president", Streep told The Washington Post. He added, "No, I like Oprah".
Speculation about Winfrey running for White House has been around for some months now.
She continued, "I think that has been one of my greatest wisdom-teachings, is to assess from people's behavior - their actions not just towards me, but towards other people - who they are and how they behave..."
The press secretary added: "Is she a successful individual?"
"Think of all the stars who owe Oprah", our insider said.
Hollywood heavyweight Steven Spielberg has thrown his support behind Oprah Winfrey should she make a bid for president in 2020.
He says she'd be able to walk the walk when it comes to unifying a highly polarized electorate.
Winfrey never mentioned running for office.
Spielberg also believes Winfrey, whom he says is "crackerjack on the money on women's issues", could be an "ambassador of empathy".
