Weight Watchers stock jumped more than 13% after Oprah's Golden Globes speech

Weight Watchers stock jumped more than 13% after Oprah's Golden Globes speech”

President Donald Trump says he's confident he could beat Oprah Winfrey in a battle for the presidency in 2020 - and says it would be "a lot of fun". Trevor Noah can see it.

His tweets follow Winfrey's speech at the Golden Globes on Sunday night, which spurred chatter about a 2020 run.

Giving the speech as she received the Cecil B DeMille award meant no one could say "who are you to tell us what's wrong with our industry and what needs to change?"

"I don't think she's actively considering it at this time", Ms King said on the This Morning show. Ironically, Donald Trump - on many levels her antithesis - has legitimised the idea of a celebrity presidency (though arguably the ascent of actor Ronald Reagan to the highest office in the land set an early precedent) Democrats now have no one candidate who has emerged as a likely 2020 contender, making Winfrey a possible unifying candidate.

After college, she went into journalism before reigning for 25 years as queen of the United States talk show, ushering in an era of confessional television before becoming the first black woman to own a television network. "They're the complete opposite!" Actor Natasha Rothwell also weighed in, reminding Ivanka of the accusations against her dad, as did author Michael Wolff, who said, "Who does she think her father is?"

Mayers referenced in his opening monologue comments he had made about current USA president Donald Trump during the 2011 White House Correspondents' Association Dinner.

If you wonder why anyone is taking the Oprah-for-president idea seriously, go back and listen to that speech.

After two days of heightened speculation, Mr Trump said he did not think she would end up running but thought he could defeat her if she did. "We welcome the challenge, whether it be Oprah Winfrey or anybody else", Hogan Gidley told reporters on Air Force One during a flight to Nashville on Monday.

Even she is facing criticism, however, from those who haven't paid any attention to her history of speaking out about abuse or who have failed to learn the lesson we've all been hearing.

In the meantime, as Oprah promised, "a new day is on the horizon" - and it's up to all of us to make sure it dawns. "I wanted this to be a meaningful moment".

But it was Oprah Winfrey's 10-minute speech as she took to the stage to accept her award that dominated the evening.
