NBC apologises after it sends tweet calling Oprah 'OUR future president'

Hollywood actors and actresses celebrated the #MeToo movement and demanded gender and racial justice at Sunday night's Golden Globe Awards. "I'd love to have Oprah", Trump said at the time.

Since Sunday night, Hollywood, liberals and ardent fans have been abuzz with speculation that the billionaire chat show queen is harboring Oval Office ambitions. He was the first Asian American to do so, according to Twitter Moments.

Some of Winfrey's confidants have been privately urging her to run, the sources said.

It was clear from the first victor that it was going to be her night.

Afterwards Oprah's longtime partner Stedman Graham, who attended the awards with her, made it clear that a 2020 run was a definite possibility.

"It's the insatiable dedication to uncovering the absolute truth that keeps us from turning a blind eye to corruption and to injustice", she said. Meryl Streep also issued an endorsement, telling The Washington Post: "She launched a rocket tonight". I just want to say: Oprah, you will never be president. "I don't think she had any intention [of declaring]. But now she doesn't have a choice".

Yesterday a tweet about the Golden Globes and Oprah Winfrey was sent by a third party agency for NBC Entertainment in real time during the broadcast.

A representative for Winfrey did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

In an interview with Bloomberg TV that same month, she hinted that Trump's lack of government experience, had recalibrated her own thoughts. "I thought, 'Oh gee, I don't have the experience, I don't know enough".

Weeks after the election, Winfrey signaled that President Donald Trump's 2016 victory may have been her "aha moment".

Raised in Nashville, Milwaukee and MS, she was raped as a 14-year-old by an uncle and became pregnant, until she miscarried the baby.

"We miss that woman", Janney said of Winfrey, who ended her eponymous talk show in 2011.

Oprah Winfrey arrives with the Cecil B. DeMille Award in the press room during The 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel, Jan. 7, 2018, in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Earlier in the evening host Seth Meyers put the pressure on Oprah to run, suggesting Tom Hanks as her vice president which received some considerable applause.

During Winfrey's speech later in the night, she made history as the first black woman to accept the annual Cecil B. DeMille Award, since it was first handed out in 1952, and directly addressed the current climate, projecting a time when "nobody ever has to say "Me too" again".

She expressed gratitude for Taylor and all the women who were silenced when they spoke out about powerful men, the women who worked in factories, farms, as domestic workers and in academia, whose names will never be known.

"I will never have to know the answer to that, because I will never run for public office", she said.
