"While Oprah had her share of supporters touting "#Oprah 2020", - and total mentions of a possible presidential run approached one million on Twitter - her critics busied themselves posting pictures of Winfrey kissing disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein at previous awards shows. While he supports the idea of Winfrey running, it would also punctuate how Trump's candidacy has altered political norms.

"Oprah, I love Oprah", he said when asked who would be his ideal running mate. I've talked to a lot of people close to her, around her, there is basically bedlam in Oprah land right now. "The election of Donald Trump was a devastating setback for little girls", said Liz Purdy, who led Democrat Hillary Clinton's 2008 New Hampshire presidential primary campaign.

Trump added that he thought the world of Oprah. The word is she gets in bed with-I mean, I've got Hollywood contacts. "I think we'd win easily, actually". She's somebody that's very special If she'd do it, she'd be fantastic.

"I slept on it and came to the conclusion that the Oprah thing isn't that insane", tweeted Dan Pfeiffer, a former senior advisor to Barack Obama, the president whom Winfrey was credited with helping to elect in 2008.

After the network deleted the tweet, NBC released a statement in which they clarified that a "third party agency" made a "real-time joke" during Meyers' monologue and that it was in no way a political statement or endorsement.

"I did one of her last shows". "So if that's true, I just want to say: Oprah, you will never be president!"

Beyond her rise from poverty, Winfrey's success as a multidimensional media figure has come from promoting ways for women to assert themselves, typically outside the political arena.

Though Winfrey has previously denied that she would run for office, longtime partner Stedman Graham seemed to leave it open as a possibility. "She did in nine minutes what Barack Obama did in 17 minutes in 2004", Jones said, referring to the 44th president's famous Democratic National Convention keynote address that launched him onto the national scene. At the time, Trump said that Oprah would be the flawless vice president.
