Oprah Winfrey’s speech Sunday night at the Golden Globes has the left talking about a potential 2020 Presidential bid for the TV icon. Even Winfrey’s longtime love Stedman Graham says she needs to consider running.
Some Republicans are warning the Oprah buzz must be taken seriously.
“Republicans and the broader conservative movement must not underestimate the political potential of Oprah Winfrey as a Democrat presidential contender in 2020, said Breitbart News’s Sonnie Johnson on Monday.
Johnson offered her analysis of Winfrey’s political potential on Monday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight, hosted by Breitbart Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon and Senior Editors-at-Large Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak.
“Republicans are not going to have a chance in hell” of defeating Winfrey as a presidential candidate in 2020 if the talk show celebrity successfully fuses an “economic message” with her “cultural powerhouse” assets, said Johnson:
If you would’ve asked why Hillary Clinton lost, you know, lazy, bad candidate, all of those things; she did not have an economic message. She did not have an intellectual message. The thing I stress so much on Sonnie’s Corner is a mix of culture and intellect. One by itself cannot win the day. You have to have both of them, and what Hillary Clinton lacked was the intellectual argument.”
