Trump says he would beat Winfrey in presidential contest

"Oprah would be a lot of fun", he said. She then added, "I was up talking to her late last night".

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.

Gayle King, who is close friends with Winfrey, said on "CBS This Morning" earlier Tuesday that Winfrey finds the idea "intriguing" but added that she doesn't believe Winfrey is actually considering it right now. Known to millions by her first name, Winfrey, 63, has been a cultural force in the country for decades. "But I don't think she's actively considering it at this time".

"I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon", Winfrey said. Everything she touches turns to gold, so why not give politics a spin?

Hollywood film producer and world-renowned preacher, DeVon Franklin took to Instagram with a news photo of Oprah which said, "Oprah Winfrey Stole the show at the Golden Globes". Winfrey has previously dismissed the idea of running for office.

Even so, for Democrats in early voting states, and perhaps for a public that largely disapproves of President Donald Trump's job performance, the notion of a popular media figure as a presidential candidate is not as odd as it once seemed, given the NY real estate mogul and reality TV star now in the White House. He has also been accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct, though he has vehemently denied the allegations.

Like Oprah Winfrey, Ms Trump has been subject of rumours about her potential presidential ambitions. "She would absolutely do it".

Oprah has been an influential cultural figure for many years, but it is not clear whether or not the well-loved billionaire will run for president in 2020.

On the one hand, after a Trump presidency, I would kill for a tiresome individual with specific policy ideas who could speak soporifically about fixing Obamacare until I became bored and turned on "The Bachelorette".

Do we need to check ourselves before drawing false equivalencies between Oprah and Trump?

"No, I absolutely don't think that her position has changed". Adlai Stevenson, a two-time Democratic loser, purportedly responded to a voter who told him that he had the support of every thinking person in America by saying that was all fine and good, but he needed a majority.
