Two hours before Oprah accepted the Cecil B. DeMille award at the 75th Golden Globes, host Seth Meyers set the tone.

During the monologue, he took time to speak directly to Oprah, saying,

“I told some jokes about our current president at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner — jokes about how he was unqualified to be president — and some have said that night convinced him to run,” said Meyers, referring to THIS. “So if that’s true, I just want to say: Oprah, you will never be president! You do not have what it takes!”


Afterwards, Oprah took the stage to accept the Cecil B. DeMille award for her work in the entertainment industry.


She took on the big topics – injustice and corruption in Hollywood and politics, free press, the #MeToo movement.

“I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon! 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 that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say ‘Me too’ again.”


The internet immediately responded by throwing Oprah into the 2020 presidential race. #Oprah2020 was trending within minutes.

Late night hosts have begun sharing their thoughts on the idea too.


Jimmy Kimmel was asked Monday about his thoughts on the topic, saying, “Given the choice between Oprah and our current President, I’m on the bus with Oprah traveling the country, encouraging people to sign up and vote,” Kimmel told TV critics.

Downside; “We will have to call her President Winfrey. I don’t know if we’re prepared for that as a country,” he warned.
