After Oprah’s Golden Globes Speech, NBC Tweeted Support for ‘OUR’ Future President

On Sunday, Oprah Winfrey became the first black woman to win the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes.

During her speech, the American powerhouse contrasted where she started to how far she’s come:

“A kid watching from the cheap seats as my mom came through the door bone tired from cleaning other people’s houses … at this moment, there are some little girls watching as I become the first black woman to be given this same award.”

She also expressed her gratitude for the press, which she said is “under siege these days,” and for the men and women who have fought to speak the truth even when it is difficult.

Winfrey concluded her speech with a message to “all the girls watching,” to whom she proudly exclaimed, “A new day is on the horizon.”

Her speech brought the crowd to its feet in a standing ovation and had people on social media calling it “presidential.”

Among those who speculated if it was Winfrey’s unofficial declaration for a presidential run was NBC, which broadcast the show. The network tweeted:

While many people praised Winfrey’s impassioned speech, First Son Donald Trump Jr. pointed out that NBC’s endorsement of the mogul cast out all doubts about “where the media stands.” He tweeted:

Trump claimed that the bias against his father is “now so obvious they have simply given up hiding it” and wondered if the public can “trust anything they say at this point.”
