Seal clarifies position on Oprah Winfrey social media post

Fifty-four percent of the 1,350 adults surveyed said they wouldn't want to see Winfrey run for president in 2020. The text over the image read, "When you have been part of the problem for decades, but suddenly they all think you are the solution".

Seal also spoke out for the victims of sexual assault and harassment, saying he didn't feel enough had been done to punish their attackers.

He has called out Oprah on Instagram for her past association with disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

And now, director Steven Spielberg has thrown his support behind the "A Wrinkle In Time" star, saying he would definitely back her if she chose to put herself forward as a candidate.

"Yeah, I'll beat Oprah", Trump said.

Seal's criticism was met with praise, but others seemed to consider the singer a hypocrite, including model and cookbook author Chrissy Teigen.

"I want all of the girls watching here now to know that a new day is on the horizon", she declared at the Los Angeles prizegiving. "I'd much rather go for someone like Oprah Winfrey than a career politician".

Steven added that Oprah would bring "empathy" to the White House, something which he believes is lacking in current president Donald Trump.

Sigh. The whole thing makes me wish we still lived in a time when people with real accomplishments were the prominent ones in our government.

In her powerful Golden Globes speech, Oprah spoke about press freedom, racism and sexual abuse before receiving a standing ovation with her closing words about the future. Meryl Streep, Oscar-winning actress, told the Washington Post that, "I want her to run for president".

Winfrey's best friend and morning TV anchor, Gayle King, said the speech was not meant to be political, and that she isn't considering running, People reported. Her speech touched on her upbringing, being raised by a single mother, growing up disenfranchised and how her platform has given her more of a voice. "I don't think she had any intention, but now she doesn't have a choice".
