Oprah taped a sit-down interview with Pastor TD Jakes to air next week in which she explained why she has been silent over the past few months about the presidential race.
“The reason why I haven’t been vocal, other than saying I’m with her, is because I didn’t know what to say that could actually pierce through all the noise and the chaos and the disgusting vitriol that’s going on and actually be heard…”
She also had a few words for the undecideds out there:
“There really is no choice, people. All the people sitting around talking about they can’t decide. This is what I what I wanna say — wait a minute. I hear this all the time. You get into conversations — and there’s not a person in this room who hasn’t been in the same conversation — where people say, ‘I just don’t know if I like her.’”
“She’s not coming over to your house! You don’t have to like her. You don’t have to like her. Do you like this country? Do you like this country? You better get out there and vote. Do you like the country? Do you like freedom and liberty? Do you like this country? OK. Do you like democracy or do you want a demagogue?”
