Oprah campaigns for Democrat Stacey Abrams for Georgia governor

(SUB)Wow – Mike Pence Quoted 'Anchorman' As He Dissed Will Ferrell [Video]

"The woman that she's supporting is not qualified to be the governor of Georgia by any stretch of the imagination", Trump said. "I'm here today because of Stacey Abrams".

The actress is set to hit the campaign trail for Abrams this week and gave a heartfelt speech at Thursday's event.

She added that she is in Georgia because of all the men and women throughout history who were "suppressed, repressed and oppressed for the right and the equality at the polls".

"I want to tell you ... no one paid for me to come here".

She said: "Oprah Winfrey has inspired so many of us through the years with her unparalleled ability to form real connections and strengthen the bonds of family and community". "You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy, their suffering and their dreams, when you don't vote".

Claiming that Abrams is "bankrolled by Hollywood liberals", he blasted Oprah Winfrey's appearance with the Democrat at a pair of town halls in metro Atlanta, as well as actor Will Ferrell's recent campaign appearance in Georgia. "And to vote for myself", Winfrey said to cheers.

John Lewis, an icon of the Civil Rights movement and the dance floor, provided some needed respite by getting down to the song "Happy" by Pharrell Williams before a rally for Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. "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". Her path to victory, as the campaign sees it, comes through activating voters who might have sat out past elections or never before cast a ballot while - at the same time, with the same message - appealing to political moderates, especially those tied into Atlanta's booming economy.

"I've earned the right to do what I want to do when I want to do it".

Videos uploaded to Ms Winfrey's and Ms Abrams' social media showed the television personality knocking on doors canvassing for the hopeful governor.
