Step back for a moment and consider where we've come: If I'd told you five years ago that the 2020 presidential race would be Oprah versus The Donald, you'd have insisted I seek professional help. "I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon!"

Naturally, Twitter had quite a bit to say about Trump's confident stance.

The three-time Academy Award victor, speaking in London alongside director Steven Spielberg and co-star Tom Hanks, said the 63-year-old has shown presidential qualities.

Even if Winfrey isn't a politician by trade, her "Golden Globes speech was, without question, a first step down a political path", Cillizza wrote in a column for CNN.com. Streep was in the audience when Winfrey gave her address at the Globes, sitting next to her The Post director Steven Spielberg, who is another big Oprah-for-president fan. I urge all of us to not only support survivors and bystanders who are courageous enough to tell their truth, but to promote restorative justice. - I thought it sounded nearly like a campaign speech.

"I think we need a mindful, empathetic human being in the White House who understands people and puts people ahead of their own ideas of power and self-aggrandizement", he argued, "and I think Oprah has already proved her capacity for selflessness".

In her powerful speech, Oprah spoke about press freedom, racism and sexual abuse before receiving a standing ovation with her closing words about the future.

Now in terms of policies, there is the difficulty I think because while she is a very unique figure in terms of her charisma, she is a very conventional figure in terms of her policies. They're the women whose names we'll never know. One that sparked rumors of a 2020 presidential run, and rallied against racist and misogynist oppression.

Oprah had campaigned for Barrack Obama in the 2008 and 2012 elections, as well as Hilary Clinton in last years elections, saying, "America, it's about time we made that decision", referring to having a woman in office. Even late-night hosts like Stephen Colbert, Trevor Noah, and Seth Meyers (who also hosted the Golden Globes) are rooting for her.

"Have you ever thought given the popularity you have - we haven't broken the glass ceiling yet for women - that you could actually run for president and be elected?"

"I'll tell ya, she's really a great woman, though".
