Oprah Winfrey’s empowering speech while accepting the Cecile B. DeMille award at the 2018 Golden Globes had nearly the whole room in tears. Host Seth Meyers joked with the crowd, calling for Winfrey to run for President. A day later, the Internet is still buzzing over her hopeful words, and speculation is rising over a potential Oprah 2020 campaign.
One person on board with the campaign is none other than Lady Gaga. The singer took to Twitter to chime in on the rally for Winfrey’s candidacy, writing, “Oprah for president? She’s got my vote.”
Oprah for president? She’s got my vote.

Gaga has been known to use her platform and fame for advocating important issues like LGBTQ and women’s rights. Naturally, her beliefs aligned with the topics of Winfrey’s message at the award ceremony. The long-time entertainment personality spoke of everything from becoming the first black woman to receive the Cecile B. DeMille award to speaking her truth in a male dominated industry. She shed light on the #MeToo movement and proudly exclaimed that “a new day is on the horizon.”
Fans replied to Gaga’s tweet encouraging the singer to run for Vice President. While the whole scenario is just theoretical for now, the two would surely make the ultimate girl power duo.
