Trump thinks Oprah won't run, says he'd defeat her anyway

Van Jones: If Oprah runs, 'she will destroy anybody in front of her'

Van Jones Gushes Over Oprah: 'Queen of the Universe' Would 'Destroy Anyone in Front of Her' if She Ran for President

Alex Jones, the nutritional supplement salesman who leads the Infowars outlet, and Gavin McInnes, who hosts a show on CRTV and leads the weird "Proud Boys" club, reacted to media speculation about whether Oprah Winfrey would run for president by claiming that Winfrey is a lesbian who helped, and sometimes participated in, Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual assaults on women.

Jones then aired his own doubts about a Winfrey presidency and alleged that his "Hollywood contacts" told him that Weinstein and Winfrey sleep with young women together, building off accusations that Winfrey told an aspiring actress that Weinstein would help her career before Weinstein allegedly forced himself on her. When she ramped the energy and emotion even higher with her "new day is on the horizon" proclamation, I no longer had any doubt that I was hearing political oratory of a very high order.

Winfrey gave an impassioned speech Sunday night at the Golden Globes that has sparked talk about whether she might run for president.

"There is money around for Oprah, Michelle Obama and George Clooney - but the odds suggest that Donald is going to be hard to beat", said global betting chain William Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.

Almost seven in 10 voters overall, including a majority of Democratic voters, said in the survey they didn't want Winfrey to run.

Jones predicted that Winfrey would "never be elected president because the skeletons in her closet".

"I don't think she had any intention of declaring", she added. In a 1999 interview, he praised her as a strong choice for vice president.

Winfrey, long associated with Democratic politics and fundraising, has not commented publicly on the speculation.

The story says that Monaco's "tough stance" on their valuation of Lemar could put Liverpool FC off making a move for the 22-year-old attacker this month.

But some media commentators also injected skepticism into the surge of excitement among fans of the former talk show star, saying the Democratic Party and the country might well reject the notion of another celebrity political novice following Trump's 2016 election.

This is the first time that anyone close to the American icon has admitted that she has ambitions for the White House.

Several Twitter users as well quickly declared that Oprah needed to make a run for the Oval Office.

"NOPRAH! Do we really need another celebrity president?" read the front page of Tuesday's New York Post. "Really?", and bemoaned the "impossibly boring" current crop of major political figures, making people more likely to vote for celebrities like Trump or Winfrey. "But he is not a politician and that confuses his critics".
