Oprah 'intrigued' by idea of running for president, friend Gayle King says

Oprah 'intrigued' by idea of running for president, friend Gayle King says”

CNN, citing two of her close friends, reported on Monday that the television and movie producer and actress was actively thinking about making a White House bid. Her long-time partner Stedman Graham told the Los Angeles Times on Sunday that Winfrey "would absolutely do it".

"It's up to the people", he added.

Interrupted by flabbergasted GMB host Piers Morgan, who reminded Spicer of Trump's own past lack of political experience, Spicer continued: "Clearly President Donald Trump proves there is an appetite for outsiders and you don't necessarily have to have that". "That's how he interpreted the question, because this is the thing. He would never do that". Still, she denied having any presidential ambitions while speaking with a Bloomberg News reporter backstage at the awards show.

In receiving a lifetime achievement award from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Winfrey spoke of her humble upbringing and her childhood respect for civil rights heroes.

"Oprah will be a lot of fun", Trump said Tuesday, noting that he knows Winfrey "very well" and appeared with his family on one of the final episodes of "The Oprah Winfrey Show".

Trump has tweeted warm words for Winfrey many times before taking office, even saying, "I adore Oprah" in a 2012 tweet.

King, who was at the Golden Globes when Winfrey gave her speech, described being in the room as "electrifying".

She wrote: "Just saw @Oprah's empowering and inspiring speech at last night's #GoldenGlobes". She really did want to speak to young girls around the country.

"I like Oprah, I don't think she's going to run", he said, repeating, "I don't think she's going to run".

Oprah Winfrey's best friend, Gayle King, is downplaying any suggestion that Winfrey might run for president. "I think it's a very, very intriguing idea myself".
