Racist robocall targets Abrams and Oprah as Trump heads to Georgia

Oprah Winfrey makes rare campaign appearance for Stacey Abrams

Meghan McCain was left out in the cold Thursday when her "View" co-hosts unanimously disagreed with her warning that Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams should tread lightly when accepting campaign assistance from celebs like Oprah Winfrey. She agreed with the panel that Winfrey exists in her own class of star power, though McCain concluded by saying Abrams' victory is not assured just because Winfrey stands beside her.

The voice on the robocall pretends to be Oprah Winfrey, who stumped for Abrams in Georgia earlier this week. "I'm here today to support a change-maker". "I think that's what you are hearing from Oprah".

The hotly contested Georgia governor's race has garnered national attention and is now neck and neck, with Ms Abrams up against Republican nominee Brian Kemp.

"Stacey Abrams is being bankrolled by Hollywood liberals", Pence said, after drawing boos when he mentioned that "Oprah is in town" and noted that actor Will Ferrell was recently in the state for Democrats.

"Sending their support into the state, and some of them come into the state", he said.

Oprah preemptively scolded the crowd of reporters witnessing her Georgia performance against making any speculation her appearance was in service of a run for the White House in 2020. "[She] has been down to Mar-A-Lago.until I ran for office we did very well".

Allegri gave an update on the treatment room ahead of the midweek Champions League clash. "It's a tough one for us", he said. Juventus were by far the better side and welcome United to Turin on Wednesday night in the reverse Champions League fixture.

"Well, I think they would want them to vote, but not certainly not vote based on one's identity", Aubrey Shines said in a video message. "I'm not testing the waters", Winfrey said. "This is the South. People have been really wonderful and really optimistic about Stacey Abrams".

"You keep standing strong for the values that matter to me, and the values that matter to Georgians all over this state", she added.

The Republican Party has held Georgia's governor position since 2003. President Barack Obama is scheduled to campaign with Abrams on Friday in Atlanta, and Trump plans to travel to Macon on Sunday. If elected, Abrams would become the first African-American woman governor of a state.

"These automated calls are being sent into homes just days before President Trump arrives, reminding voters exactly who is promoting a political climate that celebrates this kind of vile, poisonous thinking", said Abrams spokeswoman Abigail Collazo.

"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", reports the outlet.
