Oprah's overture for the Oval Office?
    2018-January-10  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

奥普拉参选总统呼声高

On Sunday night, Oprah Winfrey became the first black woman to win the Cecil B. deMille Award at the Golden Globes. However, some are calling for her to make history in another way, by becoming the first female President of the United States.

It all started with a joke.

During his opening monologue, Golden Globes host Seth Meyers claimed his goading* of Donald Trump at the 2011 correspondent’s* dinner convinced Trump to run for the presidency. “So, if that’s true”, Meyers said, “I just want to say: Oprah, you will never be president! You do not have what it takes. Now we just wait and see.”

However, it was towards the end of the ceremony, when Winfrey delivered her acceptance speech, that many were moved to call for her to run for high office.

Accepting her award for “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment,” Winfrey spoke passionately about race and sexism, and highlighted the work of men and women in tackling inequality in a number of industries.

The hashtag #Oprah2020 has been used over 22,000 times on Twitter since the ceremony, while #OprahForPresident has been used over 7,000 times in the same period.

Twitter users praised the entertainment mogul’s* presidential style and speculated on her plans to run for political office.

However, not all of the reaction was as supportive, with some questioning #OprahForPresident.

Drawing parallels* with President Trump, some accused Winfrey’s supporters of hypocrisy*. Some detractors* posted photographs of Winfrey with movie producer Harvey Weinstein, who is at the center of the sexual harassment scandal in Hollywood.
