Oprah Winfrey’s Powerful Golden Globes Speech Sparks Calls for Presidential Run

Seth Meyers joked that Oprah Winfrey might run for president during his Golden Globes opening monologue on Sunday night. But Winfrey’s powerful speech about inequality later in the night sparked serious calls for the mogul to consider a presidential bid.

Winfrey, who was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement on Sunday, spoke about the injustices women and minorities have faced and promised change.

“I want all the girls watching here now to know that a new day is on the horizon,” she said.

The commanding speech ignited calls for Winfrey to run for the nation’s highest office in 2020. Oprah told Bloomberg on Sunday night that she didn’t have plans to run. But her longtime partner Stedman Graham told the Los Angeles Times: “it’s up to the people. She would absolutely do it.”

Some social media users seemed eager about the idea. Meryl Streep told the Washington Post on Sunday that she wanted the mogul to run.

The only way Oprah’s speech would have been more perfect was if she announced at the end that she was running for President #goldenglobes #Oprah2020

I was never one to jump on the #Oprah for President bandwagon cause I love her too much to put that burden on her. But now I am convinced that she can right these wrongs and turn this beautiful American ship around. Frankly, I’m convinced she can walk on water. #GoldenGlobes
