Oprah Winfrey 'considering' running for president

Oprah Winfrey 'considering' running for president

"Let me tell you this room is still vibrating like electricity from that speech", Ava DuVernay tweeted. "Times up for who?" "I thought, 'Oh gee, I don't have the experience, I don't know enough.' And now I'm thinking, 'Oh'". Empathy when I felt lost, lonely and inept.

And Oprah Winfrey won acclaim for her speech, in which she said the effort to change the systemic problem requires the involvement of men. I've been on her show ...

She taught and touched me during every formative, terrifying period of my life. But it didn't matter: When she saw Anne Bancroft present Sidney Poitier with an Oscar, she knew she was witnessing something momentous.

Another highlight of the night was the profound speech, of the world's most influential woman Oprah Winfrey; the media mogul's acceptance of the career honor defined the evening more assuredly than Seth Meyers' able if understated performance as host, or any other moment in the three-hour, eight-minute broadcast.

"Thanks for your VOTE of confidence!" responded Winfrey on Twitter. Among the greatest I've seen, period.

"What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have", Winfrey said. We lived in the gaps between the stories", Moss read before adding, "Margaret Atwood, this is for you and all the women who came before you and after you who were courageous enough to speak out against intolerance and injustice and to fight for equality and freedom in this world. Each of us in this room are celebrated because of the stories that we tell.

By wearing black, actors aimed to stand in solidarity with victims of sexual misconduct.

She drew applause by pointing out that sexual abuse isn't just an unfortunate story in the entertainment industry, but one of all women, "transcending culture, geography, race, religion, politics, and the workplace". May we also, please, protect and employ them. They are domestic workers and farmworkers.

Winfrey had barely heralded a "new day" following a sexual harassment watershed, before calls snowballed for one of America's most famous women, a self-made tycoon born into poverty, to run for the highest office in the free world. Taylor died at the end of December at 97. "And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women ... and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say, 'Me too, ' again".

The White House even waded in, saying Trump would "welcome the challenge, whether it be Oprah Winfrey or anybody else", when a spokesman was grilled aboard Air Force One.

Her longtime partner also suggested that she could be persuaded. "It's up to the people", he said. "She would absolutely do it". We can be the warrior we want to be, and we can succeed in whatever our dreams may be.

Still, Winfrey in all of her fabulous #blackgirlmagic connected the dots of resistance and hope like only this true queen of media can.

Tonight I walk into this space knowing that my ancestors fought for the simple right to live. "I'd love to have Oprah, I think we'd win easily, actually". We no longer live in the gaps between the stories.

It's on us to revive this nation's heart. He is also the author of "Raising a Beatle Baby: How John, Paul, George and Ringo Helped us Come Together as a Family". "But that would be something she would have to determine and lay out if she made a decision to run". It should lay at ours.
