Our inside-the-Beltway mole points out that like President Trump, Winfrey is comfortable on camera, understands media and knows how to promote.

Donald Trump has said he is confident he would beat Oprah Winfrey in a presidential election. While listening to the speech, it had reminded me of then little known Sen.

"Look, it's ridiculous - and I get that", said Brad Anderson, Barack Obama's 2012 Iowa campaign director, who supports the idea of Winfrey running. "They are domestic workers and farm workers.They are working in factories and work in restaurants and they're in academia", says Oprah Winfrey.

"Oprah. I love Oprah. Absolutely. But in terms of where she stands on a number of positions, I would find a number of problems with that", Sanders said.

"In the end, she is not going to do it", Howie Kurtz of Fox News' Media Buzz said.

"I know her very well", he continued. "I think we need a mindful, empathetic human being in the White House who understands people and puts people ahead of their own ideas of power and self-aggrandizement - and I think Oprah has already proved her capacity for selflessness". King confirmed as much on CTM, saying, "I was up talking to her very late last night. Oprah would always be my first choice", he told Larry King back in 1999.

That source suggests Winfrey's ability to sway politicians on a local level might even make her more influential than a President, but recommends that she lets potential opponents sweat.

In his opening monologue Meyers revealed he had once made a joke that Trump could never be US President, which led to The Donald deciding to run in the election. Her appeal extended well beyond her celebrity, some said, citing her compassion, kindness and devotion to helping others as a badly needed change after Trump.

Those aren't exactly good numbers for the president - especially considering Oprah seems to be quelling the rumors that she would be running for office.

The question is will Trump even be running for re-election in 2020?

Members of Congress will apparently be making a fashion statement not at an awards show - but at the president's State of the Union address on January 30. Kirsten Gillibrand or Elizabeth Warren?
