Oprah Winfrey showed up in Georgia to stump for Gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, a rabid leftist with a trail of scandals. But, don’t tell Oprah that. She blasted the crowd in Marietta with slavery metaphors, invoking “lynchings” and “oppression” as the reason to vote for Democrats. Well, little did Oprah know, Vice President Mike Pence would make her regret it.
Oprah Winfrey couldn’t help herself. Like most leftists, Winfrey is led by her emotions, not by facts. So, when she saw this African-American woman named Stacey Abrams embroiled in the governor’s race in Georgia, Oprah had to get involved.
Oprah brought her star-power and money to a campaign for a woman who hates “the free market” in favor of socialism. Abrams is in debt, too, big time. “Abrams owes more than $50,000 to the Internal Revenue Service and about $170,000 more in credit card and student loan debt, according to personal financial disclosure documents the candidate for governor released this week,” reports the Political Insider.
Yet, Oprah thinks Abrams can run the entire state of Georgia. “I want to tell you…no one paid for me to come here. No one asked me to come here,” Winfrey said at a rally, as NBC reported, adding that she is both an independent woman and a registered political independent. “I came for myself and I approve this message.”
NBC added, “Winfrey, who took the stage to booming applause, said she wanted to come to Georgia to support Abrams because she saw how Abrams is ‘handling herself’ amid an onslaught of ‘haters.'”
Well, how about how Abrams handled a voter fraud scandal? According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Abrams headed the New Georgia Project, which was just like ACORN. Abrams was found to have mishandled thousands of voter registration cards in Georgia. She took in the money for the registration drive and delivered next to nothing.
Then, she blamed Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp, who is now running against her for governor.
“The [New Georgia] project’s months-long statewide registration effort launched by then-state Democratic House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams devolved into accusations of voter fraud, counteraccusations of voter suppression and a lawsuit won by Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp over allegations that he and local elections officials misplaced thousands of registration forms submitted by the project,” reported the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
But, hey, Oprah Winfrey says Stacey Abrams is her candidate. Of course, Abrams stinks to high heaven. That’s why Oprah had to harken back to the slave days. She wants voters to know they are racists if they don’t vote for Abrams.
“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,” Winfrey told attendees at the Cobb Civic Center Jennie T. Anderson Theatre. “I refuse to let their sacrifices be in vain.”

Well, not only did Oprah not do her homework on Stacey Abrams, but she must not have realized there was someone else in Georgia; namely, Vice-President Mike Pence.
As Breitbart reports, “The Georgia governor’s race is one of the most closely watched campaigns in the nation and is attracting top surrogates from both parties in the final days before the election. Vice President Mike Pence stumped for Kemp earlier Thursday, while President Donald Trump will be in the state this weekend.”
“I heard Oprah is in town today,” Pence said at a rally. “I heard Will Ferrell was going door-to-door the other day. I’d like to remind Stacey and Oprah and Will Ferrell, I’m kind of a big deal, too,” he continued.
“And I’ve got a message for all of Stacey Abrams’ liberal Hollywood friends: This ain’t Hollywood,” Pence added. “This is Georgia and Georgia wants a governor that’s going to put Georgia values and Georgia first. And, Brian Kemp is going to do just that.”

Georgia certainly is not Hollywood. And, Stacey Abrams is not qualified to be their governor, either. The good people of Georgia have been blasted by the Hollywood crowd, and Hollywood cash is pouring into Abrams campaign coffers.
But, we trust, in the end, Georgians know they can’t trust the celebrity pack of wolves to tell them who should govern their state. Oprah’s track record stinks. She brought us Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. We don’t need that kind of help ever again.
