Seal accuses Oprah Winfrey of knowing about Weinstein's sexual behaviour

Media mogul Winfrey has become a champion of equality and women's rights in recent years, and appeared more than a little presidential when she delivered her rousing Cecil B. DeMille Award acceptance speech at the Golden Globes on Sunday (Monday NZ Time). "And Oprah, while I have you, in 2011, I told some jokes about our current president at the White House Correspondents Dinner".

Earlier, her close friend, television host Gail King, told CBS TV that Winfrey was "intrigued" by the idea of competing in the presidential election.

Trump added: "I don't think she's going to run".

NBC's tweet drew criticism from some prominent conservatives, including Donald Trump Jr., who called it another example of media bias against his father, President Donald Trump.

"Oprah. I love Oprah".

Her best friend, Gayle King, says they have discussed the notion of running at length. King said Winfrey wasn't expecting the explosive reaction she got after the powerful moment. "It would be a pretty good ticket".

"She was interested if he'd look in the mirror and give her the honest, bone marrow truth", the rep said, adding that Winfrey was considering a 60 Minutes special with Weinstein. "I don't think she's going to run", he said.

While he supports the idea of Winfrey running, it would also punctuate how Trump's candidacy has altered political norms. "When you have been part of the problem for decades, but suddenly they all think you are the solution", the meme says, over photos of the two at events, one with Winfrey kissing Weinstein's cheek. Those individuals note that approval ratings tend to crash immediately once an individual announces their intent to run for office, and point to her lack of legislating experience as a potential liability for her.

Steven Spielberg is firmly on Team Oprah should she decide to run for president.

Oprah Winfrey must have been pleased with the talk after her speech at the Golden Globes awards ceremony the other night.

"I have people calling me - very important names that I won't name - who said, 'I will be her campaign manager". "I think it is something that Oprah would have to feel and sense for herself". "At the same time, politics is ridiculous right now".
