President Donald Trump says he would beat Oprah Winfrey in a presidential contest but doesn't think she will run. And now Juanita Broaddrick, who said former President Bill Clinton raped her in 1978, has come forward to voice her concern over Winfrey's speech.
"I do think she's intrigued by the idea, I do think that", Mr. King said.
In fact, Trump knows her so well he named Oprah as his ideal running partner back in 1999 on Larry King Live.
"I have people calling me - very important names that I won't name - who said, 'I will be her campaign manager". I did one of her last shows.
Trump's election win made the notion of another political novice becoming president plausible. She had read it to me for time, but it was the type of thing where she knew she had a message to deliver.
The press secretary added: "Is she a successful individual?" I don't think she's gonna run. "If it means looking at one of these celebrities that have a moral core, that are compassion and intelligent, I think that people should look to where they can during these very, very hard times". "She is doing very well for herself and this is not something she is seeking or trying to encourage people to even encourage her to run".
Five Women Have Accused James Franco Of Sexual Misconduct
Colbert asked if Franco had any thoughts on how to decipher the truth when people have differing recollections of a situation. Franco maintained that the tweeted accusations were not accurate, but said that he would not try to actively refute them.
It's nearly like she thinks America should elect somebody with experience in politics.
"I'm telling you his interpretation of the question was. he thought the reporter was saying would she be a good president", King said. Would she want to endure nasty speculation about her relationship with Gayle and Stedman?
"He is nothing but supportive, he would never throw it out there like that", Winfrey's best friend noted.
In her speech, Winfrey encouraged all women that have been assaulted or abused to speak up.
Amusing I've never heard you mention my name. "We think that has a lot to do with people's desire to have a different president than the one we have right now", says Krista Stark, with the Southwest Missouri Democrats.
Much of the awards ceremony had that focus. "I want all the girls watching here now to know that a new day is on the horizon!" she added.
