Ivanka Has No Right To Praise Oprah's Golden Globe Speech

Oscars Affleck

"Backstage I heard they said I was the only woman ... to get the best director award, and you know, that was 1984: That was 34 years ago".

Ivanka Trump sent a tweet shortly after Oprah Winfrey gave a rousing speech at the Golden Globes supporting the TV star's message.

THERE'S been a renewed push for Oprah Winfrey to run for US President following her stirring speech at the Golden Globes.

U.S. President Donald Trump weighed in January 9 on fevered speculation about a potential 2020 White House bid by Oprah Winfrey, saying she probably would not run against him, but if she did, he would win. "I know it's hard but #TIMESUP for your dad too", Tara Strong wrote.

She told the ceremony in Los Angeles it was not lost on her that "there are some little girls watching" her become the first black woman to receive the honour - after Sir Sidney Poitier was the first black man in 1982. "She would absolutely do it".

"I think if Oprah, because of her broad-based appeal, would run not just as an African-American candidate but as a woman candidate who would do quite well across any ethnic lines", Grant said.

Every major female celebrity wore black on the normally colorful red carpet to show support for the Time's Up $15 million campaign launched last week to support victims of sexual harassment in the workplace. "She. Is. Running", said John Podhoretz, editor of Commentary magazine.

Liberals were quick to excoriate Trump for supporting the #MeToo and related Time's Up movements, noting on Twitter that several women have accused her father, President Donald Trump, of sexual misconduct. "But now she doesn't have a choice".

"In 2011, I told some jokes about our current president at the White House Correspondent's Dinner", he said.

Meyers took a jab at President Trump when introducing the President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) as the real 'stable genius.' The HFPA President announced two grants in the amount of $1 million each to journalism groups, in a year of undersieged media. We ran a poll asking Golden Globes viewers to name their favorite host from recent memory, and the "Late Night" star came in with 26% of the vote. So if that's true, I just want to say: Oprah, you will never be president!

"Great! You can make a lofty donation to the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund that is available to support your father's accusers", tweeted actress Alyssa Milano. Oprah was awarded the Cecil B. DeMille award on Sunday night, for a lifetime achievement in film and television.
