Oprah Winfrey's Golden Globes speech sends Weight Watchers stock soaring

Oprah Winfrey's Golden Globes speech sends Weight Watchers stock soaring

CNN reports Oprah's long-time partner Stedman Graham said the TV legend would "absolutely" run for president in the wake of a volatile year of leadership under Donald Trump.

"I like Oprah", Trump said, adding that he had appeared on her long-running afternoon program.

Nearly immediately talk of a possible presidential bid erupted on social media, while on Monday the airwaves and TV talk shows were alight with speculation about whether the most powerful African-American woman in the world could consider a presidential run.

"So I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon!"

Mr Trump's daughter, Ivanka, tweeted her support for Winfrey - though not necessarily politically. And she was the one person who could do it so strongly. At this point, who's to say that Winfrey couldn't run?

Winfrey's delivery wasn't the soft, enfolding, personal empathy of "Oprah on the couch".

"CBS This Morning" host and best friend to Oprah Winfrey, Gayle King, commented on the current buzz about Winfrey's possible presidential ambitions Tuesday morning, muddying the waters rather than clarifying them.

"I thought" "I don't know how I can". Her major impact to date was her May 2007 endorsement of candidate Barack Obama - at a time when Hillary Clinton was the odds-on favorite to win the Democratic nomination.

"I want to express gratitude to all the women who have endured years of abuse and assault because they, like my mother, had children to feed and bills to pay and dreams to pursue". "#United." Social media, including celebrities, quickly took to her mentions, reminding her that her father, Donald Trump is accused of harassment by sixteen women. Actor Natasha Rothwell also weighed in, reminding Ivanka of the accusations against her dad, as did author Michael Wolff, who said, "Who does she think her father is?" She was also criticized for serving as a surrogate for him. To which Trump replied: "Oprah, I love Oprah". What she did last night was great.

Weight Watchers, which was hammered by free fitness apps and years of subscriber losses, has mounted a comeback since Winfrey bought a stake, joined the board and agreed to pitch the brand in 2015.

Trump, a billionaire TV star whose ascent to the presidency was fueled by name recognition, sheer wattage and personality, has long praised Winfrey, who shares numerous same qualities.
