Is Oprah really a viable presidential candidate — IAN HART

Is Oprah really a viable presidential candidate — IAN HART

Seal went on to explain that none of the men accused of sexual misconduct in the post-Weinstein Hollywood reckoning have received anything close to actual justice, despite being fired from movies and ousted from studios, because they, so far, have not been convicted of any crimes.

"I want her to fight for president, I do not think she meant to announce it, but now she has no choice", so Meryl Streep appreciated the speech of 63-year-old Oprah, who is an fantastic speaker. "My bad." He also added the hashtag #SanctimoniousHollywood.

On Wednesday, the actress and ex-Fox News darling tweeted out a fake news story about Winfrey titled "Oprah Under the Microscope: 12 Skeletons She Can No Longer Hide In Her Closet". And added that Winfrey had "been part of the problem for decades".

The disgraced entertainment mogul - who's now at a rehab facility in Arizona - made headlines after a number of women stated they were sexually harassed or abused by the 65-year-old. And it was also used when trolls attacked Meryl Streep, accusing her of being complicit to his abuse and crimes.

In the days following the original reports against Weinstein, Oprah addressed the allegations on Facebook and said that she was still "processing the accounts of Harvey Weinstein's disgusting behavior".

During Monday's installments of The Late Show, The Tonight Show, and The Late, Late Show, hosts Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon and James Corden all gave their takes on a potential Oprah presidency.

In a Facebook video on Thursday, singer Seal walked back his apparent accusation that Oprah knew of Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct and was "part of the problem for decades". So, using Seal's logic: if Oprah knew, shouldn't Heidi have known, too? Weinstein preyed on women with very little power, those who depended on him for their success. He chose to share a meme explicitly centered around Oprah shortly after she endorsed the #MeToo movement in her Golden Globes acceptance speech.

In one photo, Oprah appears to be kissing the uber producer's cheek. Taking a picture with someone, hell, even having a professional relationship with them, doesn't make a person complicit.
