Oprah in 2020? Friends send mixed messages on her future

Trump: I'd 'beat Oprah' in 2020 presidential match-up

"I'll beat Oprah", the president declared flatly at a White House meeting Tuesday - though he quickly added, "I don't think she's going to run".

"I think one of the arguments for Oprah is 45", Pelosi said, referring to Trump in shorthand for the 45th president. He says, "Oprah would be a lot of fun". "I do think that the speech was a different moment for her.She knew that she met the moment, but the reaction to the speech has been sort of overwhelming to her". "I also know that after years of watching the Oprah show, you always have the right to change your mind". "Listen, Oprah has got a very nice life". "I think it is something that Oprah would have to feel and sense for herself".

Trump's remarks followed comments from Winfrey's close friend and CBS This Morning co-anchor Gayle King, who weighed in on the topic and downplayed the notion Tuesday morning.

And though any Democrat can count on the support of the mainstream media that is already at war with the president, Oprah's open flattery of the press in her speech is a reminder that she will be operating with another built-in advantage that will make it even more hard for primary rivals to attack her.

Winfrey would presumably run as a Democrat, meaning that if she were to emerge victorious in the primaries and Trump chose to run for re-election, the two would square off in 2020. "I think we'd win easily, actually", Trump told ABC News at the time.

"Will she run for president?"

This isn't the first time Winfrey's name has been tossed into the political ring. I will quit my job and campaign for her.

Amid flu surge, IN residents urged to get flu shots
Shortages of Tamiflu have been reported in Southern California over the weekend, but is now available at pharmacies in Parker, AZ. Experts explain that this is because this year's flu virus is one of the nastiest the Golden State has seen in years.

On that point, King said Graham thought the reporter was asking if she would be a good president, not if she would run for president - though that doesn't fully explain why he would respond she would absolutely "do it", herco-anchors pushed back.

"She really wanted to give a message of hope, which she did", King says of Winfrey's intention behind the message.

Winfrey's speech as she accepted the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award touched on her humble upbringing and childhood wonder in civil rights heroes. Rather, her challenge will be that she will have to flee the embrace of the very people who are now doing so much to hype the Oprah-for-president bandwagon. He praised her again in 2015, calling Winfrey a friend.

"Look, it's ridiculous - and I get that", said Brad Anderson, Barack Obama's 2012 Iowa campaign director, who supports the idea of Winfrey running.

"Given the choice between Oprah and our current president, I'm on the bus with Oprah traveling the country encouraging people to sign up and vote", he said.

Late-night show host Jimmy Kimmel said Monday that he preferred Winfrey to Trump.
