Ivanka Trump scorned for praising Oprah Winfrey's Golden Globes speech

Academy Award-winning actress Meryl Streep has come out in full support of #Oprah2020 insisting Ms. Winfrey "doesn't have a choice" in the matter.

Ivanka Trump shared in the near-universal praise for Oprah Winfrey's speech at the Golden Globes, but her opinion was still met with furious criticism.

The Golden Globes host Seth Meyers seemed to promote a possible Oprah presidency in his monologue. Heavy hitters like Meryl Streep and Reese Witherspoon, both Golden Globe nominees, are expected on the black-dressed list. "What does she think this White House is about?"

Before presenting the award for best motion picture drama, Barbra Streisand talked about her own experience with inequality in Hollywood.

President Donald Trump has just entered his second year in office, but he's already confident that he'll win a second term-and beat hypothetical opponent Oprah.


Meryl isn't the only A-lister who has come out backing Oprah's potential 2020 bid for president.

Ivanka has made paid family leave one of her goals since becoming First Daughter in her quest for women's rights.

In October, Winfrey ruled out any kind of political run in an interview with CBS.

Reese Witherspoon presented the Cecille B. DeMille Award to Oprah.

Asked whether Winfrey was qualified, Sanders said, "Look, I disagree very much on her policies", although Winfrey has no voting record.


This Sunday, nearly 60 years later, that girl not only achieved it with an impeccable career in entertainment and activism, but she became the first woman of color to receive the Cecil B DeMille Award for everything she achieved in her career.

"I want to say that I value the press more than ever before as we try to navigate these complicated times, which brings me to this: what I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have". "But their time is up". Maybe we all just miss listening to someone who can actually speak eloquently in a public forum?

Still others pointed to his late 2017 support for the controversial Alabama Senate campaign of Roy Moore, who has been accused of dating underage women while he was in his 30s.

"I knew from the beginning that, all women were going to wear black today to celebrate women and to stand up for women's equality and girl power". He says, "Oprah would be a lot of fun".
