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

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

"And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure they are the leaders to take us to the time where nobody has to say "me too" again".

Hollywood Reporter critic Daniel Fienberg noted the similarity between Winfrey and President Donald Trump.

"Ladies and gentlemen, I have always broken down the fact that Oprah Winfrey is a top globalist, a top eugenicist, who pushes a one world religion through her private foundation", he ranted.

"They want to call Trump a Nazi?"

Oprah Winfrey made it clear she wants us to know this name: Recy Taylor.

She was "raped and left blindfolded by the side of the road, coming home from church", Winfrey told the audience.

However, this was not enough to dampen the excitement of the people.

Marvel Legend Stan Lee Denies Sexual Harassment Claims
Earlier this week, the Daily Mail reported that Lee allegedly groped and harassed female nurses who were assigned to care for him. Fortune: Stan Lee's personal fortune is estimated at $50 million after a lifetime of involvement in the Marvel empire.

Nearly two decades ago on CNN, Trump said that if was to ever run for president, he would choose Ms Winfrey as his running mate, according to a report on the BBC web site. But then her longtime partner, Stedman Graham, told the Los Angeles Times she just might. "She would absolutely do it". I think of myself as pretty hard-bitten and jaded, but I found it inspirational - even thrilling.

"I don't think she had any intention of declaring", she added.

If the speculation is wishful thinking, Winfrey's fame and wealth, extraordinary personal story overcoming poverty, child sexual abuse and pregnancy to build a $2.8 billion fortune and Oscar-nominated acting career, the scales would definitely tilt in her favour. She is probably the most beloved human being on Earth. On the one hand, Trump's abysmal performance in office proves, as if it needed proving, that experience is a good thing for a president to have.

Trump's kind words for Oprah are not new.

Raised in Nashville, Milwaukee and MS, 63-year-old Winfrey was raped and sexually abused as a child and became pregnant aged 14 but miscarried the baby.

At the start of the Golden Globes on Sunday, host Seth Meyers playfully encouraged her to run against Trump. The 63-year-old, who yesterday became the first African-American woman to win the Cecil B DeMille Award at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards, used the platform to say that discrimination based on race and gender was no longer acceptable. "They threatened to kill her if she ever told anyone". "So I want all the girls watching here now to know that a new day is on the horizon".
