The Golden Globes 2018 ceremony was memorable for a number of reasons, but no moment can be considered as historic as Oprah Winfrey’s emotional speech backing the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements. In a close second, Seth Myers’ joke about Oprah running for the US presidency in 2020 has caused a mass frenzy on social media.
Some responses are emotional, some are hilarious and some seriously OTT. Here are some of our favourite reactions to #OprahForPresident. (Someone has even taken it upon themselves to start an Oprah for President Twitter account.)

Oprah will not be running for president of the USA, but that doesn’t make these reactions any less enjoyable.
