Stumping for Abrams, Oprah makes impassioned plea for turnout

Adjust Comment Print

Oprah Winfrey is in Georgia today, too, knocking on doors and giving a speech to support Democrat Stacey Abrams, who is in a remarkably tight race for governor. "Come on, Oprah! It's dehumanizing, it's completely baseless, it's totally cruel, and again I say, you're much better than that and you're much bigger than that".

Winfrey sparked 2020 chatter earlier this year after her inspiring speech last January at the 2018 Golden Globes while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award.

"I'm here today because of the men and because of the women who were lynched, who were humiliated, who were discriminated against, who were suppressed, who were repressed and oppressed, for the right for the equality at the polls", Winfrey said.

"If she was a Republican and she was running against Trump in the primary, I'd have a tough decision to make", Watters quipped.

Winfrey told the crowd that anyone that chose not to vote is ignoring the challenges others had to face. "You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy".

Winfrey also spoke in Georgia Thursday on behalf of Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams, comments that earned prominent coverage on the major cable news networks.

The pitches from Pence and Winfrey clearly fit Abrams' and Kemp's respective strategies.

The president noted that he would travel to Georgia in the remaining days left before the election to support Republican candidate Brian Kemp.

"Surprise, surprise", Winfrey, 64, said. "I'm kind of a big deal too and I've got a message, I've got a message for all of Stacey Abrams' liberal Hollywood friends".

More than 1.5 million Georgians already have cast ballots. "I think people want to know: Will it work?"

"I said, when we were watching it, 'If that women can get folks to eat pizza with a cauliflower crust on it, she is going to get that woman elected the first black female governor.' She took people to church", the co-host added.
