Vice President Mike Pence tagged pro-abortion celebrity Oprah Winfrey for campaigning door to door for Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who is taking on pro-life candidate Brian Kemp.
Earlier this year, Oprah Winfrey waded into political waters by promoting the “Shout Your Abortion” movement and its attempts to normalize the killing of unborn babies. Now the former television talk show host is heading to the deep end of the political waters by campaigning for a candidate who says she is a “staunch defender” of abortion.
Abrams isn’t just an abortion supporter. She pledges as governor, to continue her 11-year career from the state legislature of opposing even the most common sense limits on abortion and has called herself a “staunch defender” of killing babies in abortions. Nevertheless, yesterday, Oprah appeared at a rally for Abrams and then went knocking on doors to urge voters to support her.
Responding to all this, the pro-life vice president slung a zinger back at Oprah.
Vice President Mike Pence responded to Oprah Winfrey and channeled his inner “Anchorman” while campaigning for Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp in Georgia.
“This ain’t Hollywood!” said Pence Thursday at a rally in Savannah, joking “I’m kind of a big deal, too,” a nod to Ferrell’s 2004 hit movie in which he played news anchor Ron Burgundy.

Pence said Abrams’ campaign is “bankrolled by Hollywood liberals,” and that Georgians want a governor who will put the state and its values first.
Barack Obama is scheduled to campaign for Abrams Friday, while President Trump will hold a rally in Macon on Sunday.
The campaigning was an extension of Oprah’s abortion advocacy from this summer. The July issue of her “O” magazine featured “Shout Your Abortion” founder Amelia Bonow in its “Inspiration” section. Bonow, who began the campaign to urge women to brag about aborting their unborn babies, soon will be coming out with a new book by the same title.
Oprah’s “O” magazine is doing a disservice to its readers by promoting the “Shout Your Abortion” campaign. Bonow’s movement gives the impression that women are glad they aborted their unborn babies. The truth is that some women regret their abortions and others do not, but no matter what the women’s feelings, their abortions destroyed another human being, their own child’s chance to ever have a story.
