Oprah Winfrey appeared on The T.D. Jakes show recently and spoke about the upcoming Presidential election.
Months ago, the media mogul announced she was supporting Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, but she has been mostly quiet about the election until now.
Winfrey expressed disbelief that some voters are still undecided, stating “There really is no choice, people!” and she goes on to tell T.D. Jakes how she feels about the election, stating that people don’t have to ‘like’ Hillary Clinton, but she’s the only choice if democracy is to prevail.

Winfrey, who’s remained fairly quiet about politics during the heated 2016 campaign, said she hasn’t been particularly vocal because she didn’t think she’d be heard over the “news, chaos and the disgusting vitriol” of the past year.
“I hear this all the time. You get in 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 your house,” exclaimed Winfrey. “You don’t have to like her. Do you like this country?”
Oprah also expressed the importance of voting in this election, stating:
“Do you like democracy or do you want a demagogue?”
FYI – a ‘demagogue’ is a political leader who seeks support by appealing to popular desires and prejudices rather than by using rational argument.
