Oprah Winfrey's speech at the Golden Globe awards last night has a lot of people wondering if she's considering a run for President of the United States.
A White House spokesliar said Trump would happily run against the media mogul as an opponent in the 2020 presidential race. Public response on social media to Oprah's awards show speech suggests that many Americans would welcome her in the race, too. Winfrey, who is 63, received the Cecil B. DeMille award for achievement, and Twitter lit up as she delivered her acceptance speech with “#Oprahforpresident” and “#Oprah2020.”

She would absolutely do it.”
Wearing a black gown to show support for victims, she used her platform to promote the “Time’s Up” movement against sexual harassment and assault, throwing her support behind others who have exposed sexual misconduct in Hollywood and elsewhere in politics and the media.
Yes, irony is dead. The Washington Post reports that Presidential Daddy Daughter Ivanka Trump used a personal email account to receive and send emails about her work for the government of the United States.
It’s not your imagination. The big cable news networks like CNN, MSNBC, and Fox pay way more attention to hurricanes and extreme weather on the east coast than they do to major firestorms in California, like the recent Camp and Woolsey fires. But why?
My 14-year-old pointed me to the cool work of artist Christian Faur. I see Mark featured his crayon portrait pieces on Boing Boing in the past but not pieces using his more recent medium of soda crackers! Prior to the midterm elections, he laser-etched all the (then-current) U.S. senators on crackers (Is the medium the […]

The key to learning any new language is feedback. When you’re immersed in conversation, it’s easy to pick up key phrases and pronunciation, but not all of us have the means to jet off to Spain, France or wherever we can learn to speak like a local. The next best thing: The Mondly app. Mondly […]
