EXCLUSIVE: Thin-Bench Dems Anoint Talk Show Host Next President

After her speech at the Golden Globes, Hollywood has declared Oprah Winfrey the next President of the United States.

Meryl Streep, who attacked Donald Trump in a fiery speech at the award ceremony last year, lavished praise on Winfrey.

“She launched a rocket tonight. I want her to run for president,” Streep said, while being interviewed after the show. “I don’t think she had any intention. But now she doesn’t have a choice.”

MSNBC’s Joy-Ann Reid echoed that sentiment from Twitter: “Switched back to the Golden Globes to watch Oprah get her award. Never let it be said that I don’t respect the president of the United States.

Actor John Stamos tweeted: “#Oprah2020 !!!”

Comedian Sarah Silverman jumped into the fray, tweeting: “Oprah/Michelle 2020,” referencing Michelle Obama as a potential vice presidential pick.

Even the mainstream media was firmly on the Oprah train. NBC tweeted: “Nothing but respect for OUR future president.” The network was later forced to delete the tweet, calling it a “reference to a joke” by a “third party agency.”

As recently as June 2017, Oprah said she there was zero chance she was running for any political office – but, with the biggest stars in Hollywood standing behind her, that could make the difference.
