“President” Oprah is the talk of the town after Hollywood went nuts for her speech at the Golden Globes.
Variety Senior VP Tim Gray says Oprah is now looking like a presidential possibility based on her lifetime achievement award acceptance speech.
”Last night, I’m telling you, if there was an election in the room, she would have won by a unanimous vote. I mean I think she got four standing ovations during her speech.”
He says the TV icon has resisted the idea in the past.
“She has said before, she never thought about running for president. When Donald Trump was elected she thought, ‘Well I didn’t want to run because I wasn’t qualified. I had no political experience. But he has no political experience. So Maybe I could.’ ”
He says it’s not as far-fetched as it sounds.
”She has defied every odds in show business, so it’s like, I wouldn’t put anything past her.”
Gray was a guest on McIntyre in the Morning.
