poverty says the rate of uninsured people went from 133 percent in 2013 to 104 percent last year Officials say the Affordable Care Act has driven much of that change The decline occurred without any

Write to Nolan Feeney at nolanfeeney@timecomOprah Winfrey has more in common with Donald Trump than you might think In several key ways she even beats him at his own game After a powerful speech on sexual harassment at the Golden Globes Sunday many of Winfrey’s fans took to the Internet to call on her to run for president against Trump in 2020 So how do Trump and Winfrey stack up Both are billionaires worth roughly the same amount With a $29 billion net worth Winfrey was the third-richest woman in America in 2017 Trump’s net worth that same year was $31 billion according to Forbes’ annual list Score one for Trump Both are media personalities famous enough to be known by one name Winfrey dominated daytime TV with a show that ran for 25 years Trump was the star of The Apprentice reality show which has run for 15 seasons Score one for Oprah Both joined Twitter in early 2009 Winfrey who started an account that January now has 412 million followers Trump who joined two months later has 463 million followers on his personal account Score one for Trump Oprah will end up doing just fine with her network–she knows how to win @Oprah Donald J Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 5 2012 Both are skilled at self-promotion Winfrey is featured on the cover of every issue of O The Oprah Magazine which has run since 2000 and has 24 million readers Trump started three magazines which never got more than a 200000 readers Score one for Oprah Both are well-known to the public Trump was named the second-most admired man by Gallup in 2017 with 14 percent of respondents Winfrey was named the third most-admired woman that same year with four percent Score one for Trump Both have been polled head-to-head Some 43% of respondents said they have a favorable opinion of Trump and 53% unfavorable in a March 2017 poll by Quinnipiac In that same poll 52% had a favorable opinion of Winfrey to 23 percent unfavorable Score one for Oprah Both have testified before Congress Winfrey appeared as a witness in favor of a bill to allow child care centers to do criminal background checks on job applicants in 1991 Trump testified in 1993 that operators of Native American casinos “don’t look like Indians to me” Score one for Oprah Both have played the role of presidential kingmaker Winfrey endorsed Barack Obama during the 2008 primaries a moment that may have played a role in his win over Hillary Clinton Trump endorsed Mitt Romney in the GOP primary in 2012 Call that a tie And now both have sparked speculation in the media about presidential runs Trump publicly toyed with the idea starting in the 1980s Winfrey has long said she’s not interested in running for office but keeps getting mentioned Call that another tie To sum up that’s Oprah 4 Trump 3 and two ties If Winfrey ran for the Democratic nomination in 2020 they would have even more in common Based on the response to Winfrey’s speech on Sunday she could easily command entire news cycles with a mix of TV appearances and public events as Trump did in 2016 earning what MediaQuant estimated was $46 billion in free air time She would be entering a crowded Democratic field that will likely include a mix of former politicians up-and-comers who aren’t well known nationally yet and third-tier contenders as Trump did in 2016 winning as his opponents failed to coalesce behind a single rival She would have no prior record in elected office and only sporadic comments on various issues in the past allowing her to run an aspirational campaign without releasing any detailed plans as Trump did in 2016 If she wanted to and there’s no reason to believe she actually does Winfrey could easily come from nowhere to dominate the Democratic field and upend the plans of countless strategists Beltway insiders and party officials Even if she didn’t win the nomination she would exert a gravitational pull on the entire field Democrats may bemoan Trump’s empty-calorie celebrity campaign win but there’s no reason to believe that they couldn’t face one of their own Contact us at editors@timecomIDEAS Kluger is Editor at Large for TIME If you’re not fed up with the human species yet it’s probably because you haven’t been paying attention There are our wars for one thing According to the Institute for Economics and Peace of 162 countries surveyed only 11 are not currently involved in some kind of armed conflict or full-scale combat There are our sectarian messes too Enjoy the ugly racial tensions sparked by the Ferguson and Staten Island non-indictments of white police officers who killed unarmed black men Then you’ll love the far less defensible nativist uprising in Dresden where weekly demonstrations are being staged to protest the imagined “Islamization” of the country despite the fact that only 2% of the population of Germany’s entire Saxony region is made up of immigrants and only a small minority of them are Muslims Then there are our drug gangs and street gangs and corrupt politicians and crooked bankers and all of the manifold reprobates who work their manifold harms on everybody else And then just when you’ve had it just when you’re really truly ready to wash your hands of the whole savage lot of us somebody does something sweet and compassionate and wonderfully caring and you’re willing to give the species one more chance Which brings me to Manuel Sanchez Paniagua the cast of the show Criminal Minds andyes damn itChristmas Manuel deserves a good Christmas season more than most He is only 15 lives in Mexico City with his family and has been battling cancer for close to two years nowwhich is an awfully big piece of your life when you’re so young (He is alsofull disclosurea member of my wife’s family) Manuel’s illness began in January 2013 with a liver tumor which required three separate surgeries at Boston Children’s Hospital the last of which was described by the lead doctor as “one of the most difficult in the history of the hospital” That was followed by three rounds of chemotherapy andas is often the case with cancera blissful remission leading his family to hope that Manuel had been cured As is often the case with cancer too however those hopes collapsed In September he suffered a seizure in Mexico and was rushed back to Boston where his doctors found a brain metastasis This time there would be more-aggressive treatments and this time his parents would hear what every parent of a sick boy or girl dreads hearing which is that just in case if things turn worse it might be time to think about granting your child some long-held wishes So Manuel’s parents asked him what his wish was and he said he wanted to visit the set of Criminal Minds There aren’t a whole lot of people who haven’t thought about what they’d choose in such a situation and the folks who’d pick a Polynesian beach house or a tour of Machu Picchu indulge in more than a little elitist sniffing when they hear of people who’d pick the Grand Canyon or Yankees training camp The cancer romance The Fault in Our Stars made much of this idea with Augustus Waters affecting shock that Hazel Grace Lancaster chose a trip to Disneyworld with her parents “‘I can’t believe I have a crush on a girl with such cliché wishes" he says But a wish of course is a reflection of a momentwho you are when you must make the choice And when the number of moments you have left to you is in question you choose what will make you happy right now today So Manuel chose Criminal Mindsand the cast and crew and production office made it happen Just before Thanksgiving he and his family flew to Los Angeles to be present for the shooting of the series’ Dec 10 episode Joe Mantegna the show’s biggest name was directing that episode and he kept Manuel busy dispatching him onto the set to work the slate explaining scenes as he directed them eating lunch with him during a break Manuel met the rest of the cast posed for photos with them and visited the writers’ rooma pretty static place if you’re not one of the show’s many rabid fans; Xanadu if you are None of what Manuel experienced in the six hours he was on-set will make a lick of difference in his prognosisunless of course it does Scientists have never fully understood the multiple ways optimism and hope and just plain being happy can help humans battle diseaseexcept to say with near-certainty that they can Just as important is what the small act of kindness that came Manuel’s wayand a million-million others like it that are performed around the world every daysay about the prognosis for the human condition Evil is vulgar broad-brush stuffthe dark mindless business of burning things down or blowing them up Kindness is pointillistbright dots of good dabbed and dabbed and dabbed again No single one of them amounts to very much But a million-million every day That can create an awfully beautiful picture Write to Jeffrey Kluger at jeffrey_kluger@timemagazinecom IDEAS TIME Ideas hosts the world’s leading voices
