Mike Pence Calls Out Oprah and Hollywood for Meddling in Georgia Election

Oprah Stumps For Stacey Abrams In Georgia, Ignores Mike Pence’s “This Ain’t Hollywood” Nattering Nearby Oprah door-knocks for Democratic candidate in Georgia

Vice President Mike Pence mocked the Hollywood liberals who were campaigning for the Democratic candidate in the Georgia gubernatorial race.

Former President Barack Obama is in Georgia Friday evening to rally for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who is locked in a tight race with Republican Brian Kemp, capping off a day of campaign events for Democrats.

Winfrey explained that in her canvassing, she already talked to people who have voted early and plan on volunteering for Abrams.

As chronicled in the podcast Making Oprah, The Oprah Winfrey Show's rise to powerhouse status coincided with these women's coming of age, a period that saw her ascent from host to something more like deity.

She declared, "I am here today to support a change maker". "Where others see a poor man's Aunt Jemima, I see someone white women can be tricked into voting for, especially the fat ones".

Trump did not elaborate and offered no evidence for his assertion, which seemed to be a potential preview of the political message he will deliver Sunday, two days before the election, at a Georgia rally for Brian Kemp, Abrams' Republican rival. "I mean, this is the South. People have been really wonderful and really optimistic about Stacey Abrams". Almost 5 percent of respondents said they were undecided, while 1.6 percent said they meant to support a libertarian candidate.

President Trump responded to Oprah Winfrey's appearances last week by claiming that he was friends with her - until he ran for office.

"We're here to support Stacey Abrams".

"Remember, if blacks are going to have an authentic representation, wouldn't they then being to denounce the very party that she's asking them to vote for?"

"Let me make it clear", the chat show host said. "I paid for myself and I approve this message".

Pence attempted to downplay the significance of Winfrey's celebrity status, telling the crowd: "I'm kind of a big deal too".

"I'm not trying to test any waters", she joked.

The hotly contested Georgia governor's race has garnered national attention and is now neck and neck.

More than 1.5 million of the state's nearly seven million registered voters have cast ballots already. Kemp has also swung back at Abrams by saying that she is advocating for "illegals to vote" for her, which Abrams denies.

Both candidates condemned an automated telephone call filled with racist and antisemitic statements that was sent to an unknown number of Georgians.
