The presidential buzz follows Winfrey's impassioned call for "a brighter morning even in our darkest nights" at the Golden Globes on Sunday night in a speech that left some viewers contemplating the idea of the Democratic Party embracing a celebrity candidate of its own to challenge Trump in 2020.
She continued, "And so my teachers - I would say this to anybody in this room - you have no idea of the power of noticing another human being and what it feels like when somebody knows that they have been seen, truly seen, by you". I also know that after years of watching The Oprah Winfrey Show, you always have the right to change your mind. Known to millions by her first name, Winfrey, 63, has been a cultural force in the country for decades. Asked by a reporter whether she had any advice for an "outsider" considering a White House run, Sanders said: "I'm not going to focus on anyone's campaign other than President Trump's re-election".
She used the show's success to build a media empire encompassing movie production, magazines, cable TV, and satellite radio, becoming one of the world's richest women.
Jimmy Kimmel, host of the Late Night Show, reacted saying, "Given the choice between Oprah and our current president, I'm on the bus with Oprah travelling the country encouraging people to sign up and vote".

Trump said he did not think the actress and talk show host would run. He would never do that, ' King said. People said 'oh yeah, she wrote that speech as a launching pad for what she wants to do.' That's absolutely not true. "I thought that they would be talking about it because it was powerful".
Whether this is a serious reality or not, one woman in New Jersey, 30-year-old Anastasia Khramova, was so inspired by Winfrey's Golden Globes speech that she started an online petition in her community in East Windsor, Mercer County, first sending the Care2 page to a few of her friends. "Oprah has not spoken to Harvey Weinstein directly", her spokesperson told TMZ several months ago. - I thought it sounded nearly like a campaign speech. "I don't think at this point she's actually considering it".
"The real question is, could she do a good job at the presidency?" "At the same time, politics is ridiculous right now".
