Oprah's powerful speech at the Golden Globes saw pretty much every man and his dog calling for her presidential bid in 2020.
Between baiting dictators into nuclear war and golfing, America's current celebrity-turned-president Donald Trump responded to the speculation she could run against him, saying it "would be a lot of fun"... but he'd definitely win should she run.
"Yeah, I'll beat Oprah," Trump said.
"Oprah would be a lot of fun, I know her very well, you know I did one of her last shows.
"I like Oprah. I don't think she's going to run."
In fact, Trump knows her so well he named Oprah as his ideal running partner back in 1999 on Larry King Live.
"Oprah would always be my first choice," he told King.
"I'll tell ya, she's really a great woman, though. She is a terrific woman. She's somebody that's very special."
He added: "She'd be sort of like me. I mean, I have a lot of things going, she's got a lot of things going."
He even teased a presidential bid on Oprah's show in 1988.
"I think I'd win," he said when pressed if he'd ever take the presidential plunge. "I tell you what: I wouldn't go in to lose. I've never gone in to lose in my life. And if I did decide to do it, I would say I'd have a hell of a chance of winning."
While the president has nothing but nice things to say about the media mogul, she hasn't been quite as kind in return.
"Have you ever thought given the popularity you have - we haven't broken the glass ceiling yet for women - that you could actually run for president and be elected?" David Rubenstein asked during a 2016 interview.
"I never considered the question even a possibility," Oprah said, adding, "I just thought 'oh'," referring to Trump's shock victory.
"Right, because it's clear that you don't need government experience to be elected president of the United States," Rubenstein said.
"That's what I thought," she replied. "I thought, oh gee, I don't have the experience, I don't know enough, and now I'm thinking, 'oh'."
After audience laughter died down, she grew serious and said: "No, that won't be happening."
It's almost like she thinks America should elect somebody with experience in politics...
