Democrats are lining up to challenge Donald Trump in 2020.
But one unexpected name may have just thrown her hat in the ring.
She’s the biggest celebrity on the planet, and after one speech, Democrats were buzzing that they found their candidate.
Talk show host Oprah Winfrey accepted the Cecil B. DeMille award at the Golden Globes.
She used the moment to deliver a paint-by-numbers lefty speech about sexual harassment and how time was up for the supposedly “evil white male” power structure.
“Oprah Winfrey’s speech Sunday night at the annual Golden Globes set tongues wagging and thumbs tweeting with speculation about her possibly running for president in 2020.
In accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Beverly Hills Hilton, Winfrey cited civil rights activist Rosa Parks and Recy Taylor, a black Alabama woman who fought for justice after being gang-raped in 1944. Taylor died last month at the age of 97.
“For too long,” the entertainment mogul said, “women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men. But their time is up. Their time is up…
…Acclaimed actress Meryl Streep had won the award in 2017, and her speech challenged Donald Trump (“When the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose,” she said at one point) — prompting push-back from the president-elect himself.
In wrapping up her speech Sunday, Winfrey said, “A new day is on the horizon. And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure they are the leaders to take us to the time where nobody has to say ‘me too’ again.”
She. Is. Running.
