"I know her very well", Trump said. "I like Oprah", he added.

Trump demurred, responding that he had no immediate plans to run for office, but went on to say that he would have "a hell of a chance of winning" because he, like many Americans, he argued, is frustrated by trade deals and foreign policy that he said disadvantaged the US. "She's a terrific woman, she's somebody that's very special. She's popular, she's brilliant, she's a wonderful woman", he said in 1999 on "Larry King Live".

"I think one of the arguments for Oprah is 45", Pelosi said, referring to Trump in shorthand for the 45th president. Drawing frequent comparisons to her own experience as the daughter of a politician, McCain zeroed in on what she characterized as Ivanka's continued desire to be welcomed into "New York liberal elite" circles (circles where McCain is of course not welcome, as she was quick to remind the audience, lest they forget her standing as the daughter of a political maverick) and wanting to have it both ways.

If Winfrey did run, it would be an interesting matchup, considering her opponent is such a huge fan of hers. "I did one of her last shows".

"I'll beat Oprah. Oprah would be a lot of fun".

Late-night show host Jimmy Kimmel said Monday that he preferred Winfrey to Trump.

Oprah's presidential history also extends to the previous administration.

"Well, I really haven't gotten quite there yet".

After speaking on the influence of actor Sidney Poitier on her, O also voiced ample support for the "Time's Up" initiative. "I don't", King said.

Oprah Winfrey has accepted a lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes by saying she hopes as the first black women to accept the honor, she hopes it has an impact on young girls watching Sunday's ceremony.

Oprah Winfrey's best friend, Gayle King, is putting to rest the reports that Oprah Winfrey is planning a presidential run. "4 years ago she strongly supported Obama-now she is silent".

Some political operatives think she has what it takes to be a viable presidential contender.

"Over the years, I've voted for as many Republicans as I have Democrats, so this isn't about partisanship for me, this is very, very personal", she said.
