WASHINGTON (AP) — President Winfrey? No way, says political prognosticator Donald Trump.

“I’ll beat Oprah,” the president declared flatly at a White House meeting Tuesday — though he quickly added, “I don’t think she’s going to run.”

Asked about all the presidential speculation suddenly swirling around Winfrey, the typically pugilistic Trump steered clear of nasty nicknames and colorful insults while sizing up such a potential celebrity showdown.

“Oprah would be a lot of fun,” said Trump, who added that he knows her “very well.”

Trump appeared on Winfrey’s long-running talk show in 1988 and again with his family in 2011, during her final season.

As Democrats encouraged Winfrey to consider a bid, her best friend, CBS News host Gayle King, said Tuesday that Winfrey is “intrigued” by the idea.

“She loves this country and would like to be of service in some way, but I don’t think she’s actively considering it at this time,” King said, noting that she had spoken to Winfrey at length the night before. “I also know that after years of watching the Oprah show, you always have the right to change your mind.”

The presidential buzz follows Winfrey’s impassioned call for “a brighter morning even in our darkest nights” at the Golden Globes on Sunday night in a speech that left some viewers contemplating the idea of the Democratic Party embracing a celebrity candidate of its own to challenge Trump in 2020. Trump, of course, was a businessman-turned-reality-television-star before his extraordinary political rise.

Trump’s daughter Ivanka endorsed Oprah’s message, if not a political future, in a tweet Monday: “Just saw @Oprah’s empowering and inspiring speech at last night’s #GoldenGlobes. Let’s all come together, women & men, & say #TIMESUP! #UNITED”

Winfrey, in September and October, publicly dismissed the notion of seeking the nation’s highest office, though she noted that Trump’s victory made her rethink the requirements of the office.

The 64-year-old media mogul has become a cultural phenomenon. She was born into a poor home in Mississippi but broke through as a television news and talk show personality in the 1980s. Over 30-plus years, she became the face of television talk shows, starred and produced feature films, and began her own network.

Trump’s kind words for Oprah are not new. In a 1999 interview, he praised her as a strong choice for vice president.

    @JHUF
    your rational is beyond ignorant if what you claim is the case why isn’t Hilary Clinton in the WH????
    ++++++
    Hilary isn’t president because trump colluded with Vladimir Putin who spent over $100 million in negative social media ads and lies against Hilary and you had a bunch of RACIST like you who wanted to elect a fellow RACIST Neo Nazis nut as a back lash to President Obama who governed successfully for 8 years because you’re STUPID enough to believe that trump can “UNDO” Obama. You dummies think that reversing regulations on Wall Street that will eventually destroy our economy again like Bush did mean trump is WINNING! Passing a shitty ass tax plan that will leave us in a deficit and hurt small businesses is WINNING! Don dump has set the bar so low for you RACIST that getting anything passed through congress is now considered a WIN even if it’s bad for the country. Denying the fact he’s a treasonous traitor to his country, why? Because he’s white and you HATE OBAMA BECAUSE HE’S BLACK. Your racist hatred for President Obama is so deep that you’re willing to board the trump train while the mentally-ill conductor drives the train off the tracks, over the cliff and hope to MAGA before the train crashes and hits the rocks at the bottom with the passenger cart full of STUPIDS strapped in their seat belts.

    I laugh at you racist white idiots who keep coming to this thread trying to convince us that trump is WINNING & proving nothing! LOL! Dumb don is FINISHED, they got his son, son and law and now may have is dim witted daughter. You can come here and LIE and post your stupid ass videos all you want because lying don’t change facts.

    • Talk about a clueless ignorant low information plantation negro….How many BLUE states did Trump turn RED???I guess all the Obama lovers must have left those states what lies were about Hilary were exposed, the ones exposing the racist e-mails put out by the DNC that cost Debbie Schultz her job, Hilary spent millions colluding with foreign agents to get dirt on Trump (The dossier from a British agent ) you know the one MSNBC and CNN refuse to talk about and get embarrassed when guests bring it up, Deficits Obama took the ND from 8trillion to 19.5 no other president has ever come close to that

      • How was it okay to be a failure under President Obama when he saved the economy & got the employment rate down? Your post is beyond f**king stupid. Sorry but can't make President Obama a 1 term president by lying about trump's accomplishments. T on said:

        But Hillary nor President Obama is currently in office facing IMPEACHMENT! And the Obama family won’t be looking at prison time.

        @jhuff: u can’t handle the Truth that Negro Blood runs through ur vains; that black people & white people are direct relatives of each other….in words to say, ur Ancestry will reveal u are directly related to a Negro or African-American as MOST so-called white Americans. African-Americans with the SAME LAST NAME as white Americans is Ancestry Evidence on it’s face when u do ur
        Ancestry Research will reveal ur great, great, great-grandfather impregnated a female negro slave…that baby born from the interracial pregnancy is ur direct relative….any black person with the SAME LAST NAME as u have is ur DIrect Relative.

    • Hilary is not in the WH because people took for granted she was going to win so there was no need to go out and vote. Get your head out of the sand Jhuf. You continue to make a nut out of yourself. And just because Trump won does not make him better. Hate and stupidity can win sometimes but it is often reveal when it does as it is being shown about 45.

  2. Amber, nothing pisses white folks off more than ignoring them and that is what you should do for mynue, mac daddy and all the rest of the ignorant bigots that come on this thread and try to antagonize. Leave him or her to their own devises. They can’t argue with themselves, well okay maybe they are just that stupid. Nonetheless, if you don’t respond back, at least you have not wasted good energy on non-relevant trash. Let them feed off themselves!!

      I think it’s hilarious that they can’t accept the fact that trump is a FAILURE and will be IMPEACHED. Lying about his job numbers and how he’s saved the country (which was already thriving under President Obama) in just one year!!! Lying about BLM anything that confirms their racism. But this is how savages react when backed into a corner. I’m almost afraid to see what will happen with don dump gets the boot from the white house.

        @PassingThrough: Nay! Nay! Nay! the “they” you are referring to is WALL STREET; “they” are BENEFITING from Trump’s Economic Agenda beyond their wildest dreams! The PoPo is the “they” u are referring to are on a Roll under Trump’s agenda. Conservative Americans are HAPPY; their spirits are at an all time high under DT. The Farmers are satisfied under DT. The ONLY ones crying are Liberals and/or Democrats & those who are being deported.

        Nay! Nay! Nay! And when the systems catches up to all of the regulations that he’s undoing that got us in a recession the economy will start to fail again, this won’t last. & No sh*t wall street is benefiting & happy because dump has removed regulations that were slapped on them to prevent them to destroying our economy like they did under George Bush.

    • I know S.D. but it hard sometimes but most of the time, I do not response to him but I will not allow him to pass info that is half truth without giving the other side as he did.

  3. NOW,NOW careful what you say Donald after all the so called political experts, liberal news media Barack Obama AND Clinton herself said You didn’t have a chance, and look at you now!!!

    • Passing Through!! on said:

      Are you f**king kidding me…LOL! Look at him now the worse dysfunctional president in history, a cabinet full of crooks on his way to IMPEACHMENT! Look at him now….LOL!

    • Yeah we’re looking at him now. We’re looking at the experts who said he has the education and mentality of a 4 th grader. We’re looking at him have a photo op in which he didn’t have a clue what he was saying or doing at that meeting the other day. We’re looking at him now as he didn’t even know the words to the national anthem the other night at the game. We’re watching him be a complete embarrassment to this country and himself. I guess he’s trying to fake it til he make it. Sad and pathetic

    RACIST are the lowest functioning savages on the planet. Because they come from a culture of SUPRAMACY that lies to them and tell them that they are first, they’re God’s chosen people they are simply UNTEACHABLE when it comes to race relations. They have an inability to see any black person as a victim and they see all PROTEST as RACISM that’s because “We sick boss.”

  5. IT’s APPARENT, TRUMP WANTS OPRAH TO RUN AGAINST HIM, bec. he knows the majority of white people will not vote for her….he knows they will smile in her face & pat her on the back, BUT, no way will they vote for her!

    • Passing Through!! on said:

      And then again he may want Oprah to run because he knows she has a real shot at beating him. trump is 100% UNFIT & UNQUALITIFIED to be president and he knows it. He wants his old life back, golfing, hiring prostitutes, making shady business deals. He terribly misses being a citizen and he knows that he’s in over his head but he’s too much of a typical arrogant white supremacist to admit defeat coming in on the heels of a black president and that he doesn’t know what the hell he’s doing. But personally I don’t think he’ll last until 2020 so we won’t have to worry about him running against anyone.

      • Willie on said:

        PassingThrough: To defeat your opponent, you MUST FIRST recognize & respect his STRENGTHS, which is taught to Soldiers & Athletes…Trump loves to get into your head [mind game] liken to the Great, Muhammad Ali.

  6. Op has a way with the majority community she would be a good president …..she from the Love and Happy nest generation ….. Come on Op give it to us get involved we need you…..

  7. RACIST is a person or movement that has a HISTORY of LYNCHING Black People, which the Black People & Black Movements mentioned herein do not have a history of such Evil & Demonic History/Conduct.. Burning Crosses on Black Peoples’ Lawns is indicative of a RACIST, which Black People & Black Movements are not guilty of such Racist/Evil Conduct. Killing a Black man bec. of dating or married to a white woman is RACIST & outright DEMONIC/EVIL, which Black People & Black Movements don’t have a history of killing a white person bec. they are dating a black person.

      No black person, group or movement has ever advocated violence against white people we can go all the way back to Marcus Garvey, to the Civil Rights Movement, Malcolm X and the black Muslim movement were peaceful, classy didn’t even carry weapons. The Black Panthers for as radical as they were they never tried to over throw the government they even provided medical services and free breakfast programs for the community. The struggle and the fight for black people has always been EQUALITY and HUMAN RIGHTS and we’ve never used violence to accomplish anything in this country, violence against whites would never work for the advancement of black people. Hell, they already feel threatened by peaceful protesting look what they did to Kaepernick for simply taking a knee.

  8. mynue*—Yes Oprah helps people of color, why shouldn’t she give back to her OWN community.

    You sound like a very BITTER/IGNORANT TURD.

    Oprah OWES poor white TRASH NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Pay Mynue no attention. He is clearly a non black person who is a REAL racist who want to come on here and trash talk blacks YET he want to attack blacks who call out real racism and try to mix activitists with racist just like 45 try to do with what happen in NC with the protesters v/s racist. He likes Trump but trash Oprah. That says it all.

    • I agree. And like I said, how many rich white billionaires compare to black ones? Plenty. And this does not including what race is position of power to give what and it is not blacks.

  9. Black lies matter isn;t racist well I consider screaming threats at white people and police officers racist. Barry the Transvestite attended a racist church and brough the worst racist on the planet to the white house, big bad al sharpton. Al’s many racial slurs and statements and actios have been well documented!

  10. This pig Oprah is the same racist who only helps black people and sends money to blacks but ignores whites when there are plenty of poor whites across the globe and the US. THis is the same black racist who says old white people should not exist. The same racist who hides behind the caste system while supporting pigs like Obama who went to a church run by a racist Jermiah Wright and racists like sharpton who made speeches about white people living in caves and incited race riots in crown heights. She associates with scum like weinstein but now hides behind the racist, anti white caste system. Not a peep from this racist on black on black slavery and the fact that arabs use blacks as slaves THIS VERY DAY in africa but plenty to say about so called misjustices in america. Typical black racist like all of them

    • You need to go back and learn what a racist is. Also, whites does not need Oprah help, they have plenty of people who are white who help them mynue. Stop coming in here trying to start drama. You already know this.

    • Also, learn more about blacks who had slaves. Slavery exist is ALL parts of the world BUT America gets the biggest mark due to the treatment. A slave in Africa still had RIGHTS, his CULTURE, his family, and became subservant to the other tribes etc; but America TOOK it all away and label a black person 3/4 of a human being, broke up the family, mentality tried to destroy blacks which still goes on today, etc. And Rev Wright was correct and had a RIGH to his feeling. He was a man who dealt with racism, spit on in the 60’s, treated UNFAIRLY, etc. so YES, he as many others are going to have choice words about it. That is NOT racism (also, blacks are not a group to OPPRESSED NO ONE due to being in CONTROL of a SYSTEM to OPPRESS another group. So again, get a history lesson.

  11. The Truth on said:

    When will he give the country some Peace and Stability.Con man I don’t want to here about pass Presidents,Hillary,The Media or any other person. I want the person with All the Power to do his JOB! HE WANT POWER WITHOUT RESPONSIBILITIES IT DON’T WORK LIKE THAT…Not Golf and Bullying Others that can’t voice their opinions.SAD
