Oprah 2020

Several sources are strongly speculating that Oprah's acceptance speech at the Golden Globes was her first stump speech for the 2020 presidential election.

Oprah Winfrey - does speech provide clues about presidential run? - BBC News

Oprah Winfrey - does speech provide clues about presidential run? - BBC News

The story the BBC had earlier reported that when asked, she denied it but when her "partner" was asked, he said words to the effect "hell yes".

I wonder. If the Republican President runs again I think she wins. But if the Republicans come up with a real candidate, do you think the average voter has been scared off TV performers as presidents?

In 2015 Trump said he was still considering Oprah for a running mate after he announced. He had mentioned her back in the 1990's as a running mate if he ran. People mocked him for that. Now the same losers who mocked him in 2015 are cheering the same Oprah to run for President.

If Oprah decides to run, she will win hands down.

Lets face it folks, being born WHITE and MALE by no means guarantees success in this country, but when it comes to accessing privilege and potential it certainly gives you a leg up.

Being born rich like wise grants a person access that less affluent people do not have even if you're not white.

Donald Trump was BOTH. He was born white and he was born rich. He was GIVEN every conceivable advantage his race and father's wealth could possibly buy. His father's company was already worth at least $40 million when Donald went to work there all the way back in 1974. Trump had already, with the help of dad made some money. He was already a millionaire in his own right, but again that was made riding his fathers coat tails. He inherited (conservatively) an additional $40 million as his share of his father's company.

The real surprise is NOT that Trump has succeeded, not that he has grown the company. The surprise would have been had he NOT managed to grow the company. That he is a billionaire is no surprise at all. He's one of those people that started life on third base and think they've hit a home run. Only in Trumps case it's not just "a" home run, it's "THE" home run, "the single greatest home run in all of home run history".

If white males are the top of the food chain, and rich white males are at the very top of the top. Then black women are at the bottom of the food chain. A black female born to a unmarried teenage black mother working as a house maid in rural poverty stricken Mississippi put's a person about as far removed from success as you can possibly get.

Yet today Oprah's net worth rivals Trumps. If Trump was born on third base, Oprah was born in the parking lot. She wasn't even in the stadium yet.

I'm not sure how I'd feel about her as a politician, but anyone that can start with less than nothing, overcome every conceivable disadvantage and build a multiple billion dollar empire HAS to be given some respect. If trump's acumen as a businessman is suppose to be an advantage for this country, then Oprah should blow him out of the water !!

Actually her support delivered more than one million additional votes for Obama. She retired from her old show in 2011 to start her own network, where she now has multiple shows airing. If her support of Obama has cost her anything, you'll have to dig deep into her $2.8 to $3 BILLION dollar empire to find it !!

If you are a very wealthy black woman, no one dare object to you or ...the fact you are among those Dem hated top 1%.

She keeps Stedman around for years...who knows maybe he is the "brain" behind her success???
