Oprah Just Freaked Out This Georgia Voter When She Knocked on Her Door to Urge Her to Vote for Stacey Abrams

Priceless.

It's rare these days that politics should be associated with joy, but overjoyed is just what one Georgia voter was when she opened her door to see none other billionaire media mogul Oprah Winfrey.

Winfrey was in Georgia doing her part to get out the vote by going door to door to make sure people were registered and to discuss the platform of Democratic nominee for governor Stacey Abrams. The woman understandably does a double take when realizing who just knocked on her door and the reaction is priceless.


Winfrey was canvassing after speaking at an event for the Abrams campaign in Marietta, Georgia. During a speech, she stressed the importance of voter turnout, saying:

"For anybody here who has an ancestor who didn't have the right to vote, and you are choosing not to vote -- wherever you are in this state, in this country -- you are dishonoring your family. You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy, their suffering and their dreams, when you don't vote."

The woman who answered the door, known as Denise, told Winfrey that she had every intention to vote.

Now, Americans can't help but imagine what their reaction would be if Oprah randomly showed up at their house.

While it's certainly fun to imagine answering that knock, others acknowledged that the effects of Oprah's actions aren't imaginary at all.

While Oprah may be the most legendary of Abrams's backers, she's hardly the first celebrity to raise their voice for the Abrams campaign.

Recently, comedy icon and SNL alum Will Ferrell canvassed and spoke with young voters at Kennesaw State University in Georgia.

Other celebrities who have put their voices behind Abrams's platform include Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan and The Avengers' Mark Ruffalo.

The endorsement from so many high-profile figures, especially those popular with young Americans may give Abrams's opponent, Brian Kemp, reason to worry. Kemp recently expressed concern over what would happen if voter turnout was high.

Kemp was heard saying in the leaked video:

“[The number of absentee ballots] is something that continues to concern us, especially if everybody uses and exercises their right to vote — which they absolutely can — and mail those ballots in, we gotta have heavy turnout to offset that.”

Kemp has also been accused of using his office as Georgia's secretary of state to purge voter rolls in communities of color.

With influential voices like Oprah Winfrey's urging Americans to go to the ballot box, because it's not just Oprah that is knocking at the door, but the futures of Georgians and other Americans everywhere.

Iowa AG Dragged For Ironically Boasting At RNC That Republicans Put Criminals 'In Jail'

Iowa Attorney General Brenna Bird was criticized after telling the audience at the Republican National Convention that the GOP is known to "put criminals where they belong: in jail"—only to then encourage everyone to vote for convicted felon former President Donald Trump.

In May, Trump became the first former president to be convicted of felony crimes. The jury found him guilty on all 34 counts of falsifying business records to conceal hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels to illegally influence the 2016 election. His sentencing was set for July 11 but has now been delayed in the wake of a Supreme Court decision granting him sweeping immunity protections.
