Lady Gaga & Anna Paquin lead the cry for President Oprah

Oprah Winfrey will "never" be elected president of the United States, despite calls from liberals for her to run for the White House in 2020, Michael Reagan tells Newsmax TV.

"Yeah, I'll beat Oprah", Mr Trump said. He then shared his opinion that he didn't think Winfrey would run but that she "would be a lot of fun". But we don't know how she'll react under the very different pressures that come with running for president. "I believe that she could make a difference in this country.For the first time, I am even like, 'Are you sure, are you sure?' - which only irritates her". No way, says political prognosticator Donald Trump. "Listen, Oprah has got a very nice life".

"She loves this country and would like to be of service in some way, but I don't think she's actively considering it". "I don't think she's going to run".

Even so, for Democrats in early voting states, and perhaps for a public that largely disapproves of Trump's job performance, the notion of a popular media figure as a presidential candidate is not as odd as it once seemed.

King, a CBS host, says that Winfrey is "intrigued by the idea" of a presidential bid in 2020, but that after a long conversation with her friend the night before, she doesn't see it happening. "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".

King adds, "It's something that she would really search within herself about what she can and wants to do". While all of those politicians can come up with a scenario by which a combination of luck, skill, and circumstances could lead to their winning the Democratic nomination, none have the universal name recognition, wealth, and likeability that the daytime TV star turned media mogul possesses. Then in his early 50's and campaigning as a Reform Party candidate in the 2000 presidential race, Trump said she would "always be his first choice" for vice president. "I think we'd win easily, actually", Trump told ABC News at the time.

Further praising her friend, King gushes, "I am still really on cloud nine for what she did".

"Look, it's ridiculous - and I get that", said Brad Anderson, Barack Obama's 2012 Iowa campaign director, who supports the idea of Winfrey running.

Winfrey's presidential history also extends to the previous administration.

King, who was at the Golden Globes when Winfrey gave her speech, described being in the room as "electrifying".

King reiterated that statement Tuesday morning: "I absolutely don't think that her position has changed".
