White House Would 'Welcome' 2020 Oprah Challenge

White House Would 'Welcome' 2020 Oprah Challenge

- CNN political commentator Van Jones said Monday that if Oprah Winfrey ran for president she "would destroy anything in front of her".

Today on "The Alex Jones Show", McInnes told Jones that he was anxious about the possibility that Winfrey would run for office until he talked to political operative and Infowars contributor Roger Stone, who McInnes said told him to imagine "the kind of skeletons this woman has in her closet" that would prevent her from running and "relax". I'm assuming she'd run as a Democrat, since that's where her worldview and sensibilities best fit. I don't think she had any intention [of declaring].

The president added that he appeared on one of the media mogul's final shows and knows her "very well".

During an appearance on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360", Jones discussed the media giant's chances for success if she were to pursue a run for the White House, calling her "the most beloved human being on Earth".

On the other, for the sake of the nation and the world, somebody has to beat Trump in 2020 - and it's not as if the Democratic Party has a lineup of potential candidates that begin to match Winfrey in charisma and star quality.

While accepting the Cecil B. DeMille award lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes, Winfrey invoked Taylor's name in a speech that delved into racism and sexism.

"She lived, as we all have lived, too many years in a culture broken by the brutally powerful men", she said.

Winfrey, long associated with Democratic politics and fundraising, has not commented publicly on the speculation. "She could lead the country". In particular, Oprah has maintained a close professional relationship with Harvey Weinstein over the past two decades.

Taylor was an African American woman from Abbeville, Alabama who was abducted and raped on her way home from a church in 1944 by six armed white men when she was 24 years old. "Weinstein saw his career go down in flames after dozens of women came forward to accuse him of sexual harassment and assault, and Winfrey's chummy relationship with Weinstein has been pointed out by a number of Twitter users who have posted photos of Oprah kissing and hugging the notorious sexual predator". "Really?", and bemoaned the "impossibly boring" current crop of major political figures, making people more likely to vote for celebrities like Trump or Winfrey.

Ha'Aretz also reported that Lauder stated: "The president I have seen is a man of incredible insight and intelligence".
