Vice President Mike Pence whined that he is “kind of a big deal too” like Oprah and Will Farrell, who are campaigning for Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (more video below).
Pence, who is campaigning in Dalton for Georgia Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp, complained about people coming from out of state to campaign for Abrams, but failed to mention that he is also from out of state:
Stacey Abrams is being bankrolled by Hollywood liberals, sending their support into the state. Like I heard Oprah’s in town today.
After the crowd booed Oprah’s name, Pence added:
I heard Will Ferrell was going door to door the other day. Well, I’d like to remind Stacey and Oprah and Will Ferrell, I’m kind of a big deal too.
While Pence complained, Oprah recalled in Marietta the historical struggles of black people trying to vote in the U.S.:
I’m here today for the men who were lynched and humiliated and discriminated against and suppressed and repressed and oppressed for the right for the equality at the polls.
And I want you to know that their blood has seeped into my DNA and I refuse to let their sacrifices be in vain. I refuse. I’m here today to say, “Don’t let nobody turn you around!” You can’t let their sacrifices be in vain.
