Oprah Campaigns for Dem Who Burned the Flag, So Pence Shuts Her Down

Linkedin Share

Stacey Abrams may very well become the next governor of Georgia.

However, not only did Abrams say a “blue wave” in November will consist of illegal aliens, but an unearthed report shows Abrams setting the Georgia flag ablaze during a protest in her youth (MORE ON THAT BELOW).

Now, Vice President Mike Pence has a few words for billionaire liberal Oprah Winfrey, who recently campaigned for Abrams.

From Daily Wire:

Oprah Winfrey, the coastal elite billionaire and queen of all media, went down to Georgia to stump for Democrats. In a Thursday speech delivered before a town hall, Winfrey praised gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams and advised people to honor their ancestors by exercising their right to vote.

Winfrey noted: “For anybody here who has an ancestor who didn’t have the right to vote and you are choosing not to vote wherever you are in this state, in this country, you are dishonoring your family.”

She added: “You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy, their suffering and their dreams when you don’t vote. I am an independent woman. Nobody paid for me to come here. Nobody even asked for me to come here. I paid for myself and I approve this message.”

“I’m not here because I’m making some grandstand, because I’m thinking of running myself,” she said. “I don’t want to run, OK? I’m not trying to test any waters. Don’t want to go in those waters. I’m here today because of Stacey Abrams.”

Enter Pence:

Though Oprah is playing it off like a grassroots campaign, her presence ejects much elitism into the political debate, being that she lives full time in a left-wing coastal haven. Vice President Mike Pence had the perfect response by channeling Will Ferrell in “Anchorman.”

“This ain’t Hollywood!” said Pence Thursday at a rally in Savannah. “I’m kind of a big deal, too.”

Pence also noted that Abrams’ campaign is “bankrolled by Hollywood liberals.”

From The Hill:

A decades-old news article about Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D) burning the state flag, which at the time included the Confederate battle flag, resurfaced on Monday.

Abrams stood on the steps of the Georgia Capitol in 1992 and burned the Georgia state flag which was viewed as a symbol of white supremacy due to its Confederate design, The New York Times reported.
