"No, I absolutely don't think that her position has changed, I don't", she said on her show, referring to Winfrey's 2017 statement that she has no intention of running for political office. Using her time in accepting her Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award, Winfrey not only gave us a necessary history lesson, introducing millions to early civil rights activist Recy Taylor, but she also let the world know that the time for abuse against women is over. Which brings me to this: What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have.
According to poll, 55% of all voters view Winfrey favorably, including 27% who view the media mogul very favorably and those stats are on par with 2011 polling results when she announced she was ending her syndicated talk show after 25 years.
But the longtime media proprietor, talk show host and actress has not indicated she would seek the presidency.
If she did choose to run, she would square off against President Donald Trump. "And now I'm thinking, 'Oh!" During that interview, Oprah did question Clinton about the sex scandal involving former White House intern Monica Lewinsky-but only asked, "What was the most hard part of that time for you?"
Media figures label Trump racist after immigration remarks
The Washington Post reported on Thursday that the president made the remarks during an Oval Office meeting on immigration reform. The government of Haiti said in a statement it was "deeply shocked and outraged" by Trump's remark - and called it "racist".
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.
"It's something that she would really search within herself about what she can and wants to do". Winfrey has her own studio, a TV channel and a magazine.
"Yeah, I'll beat Oprah".
Co-host Norah O'Donnell challenged King on that, pointing to the fact that Graham did indeed say, "She would absolutely do it". She's a very good writer.
Is that going to carry any weight, do you think, with the American public at this time? The text over the image read, "When you have been part of the problem for decades, but suddenly they all think you are the solution".
