One person we haven't heard much from this insane election cycle is Oprah. Turns out, the noise and negativity surrounding this election has been so overwhelming, it has silenced even Oprah, she explained in an interview with TD James set to air next week, Essence reports. But don't worry: she's with her.

“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,” said the legendary TV host. “But there really is no choice, people.”


Trump actually once mentioned that he would want Oprah to be his running mate, back in the glorious era before he was actually running. Over the summer, she responded: NOPE.

She also had some strong words for those who don't want to vote for Hillary Clinton because they simply don't 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? Okay. Do you like democracy or do you want a demagogue?


This is a good reminder to vote for the candidate most qualified to run the country and that's it. If you don't like her, don't worry, if she wins she probably won't have time to hang out with you at all ever.
