“There really is no choice people,” she said. “All the people sitting around talking about they can’t decide…You don’t have to like her. Do you like this country? You better get out there and vote. Do you like the country? Do you like freedom and liberty? Do you like this country? Do you like democracy or do you want a demagogue?”

Winfrey also explained her silence on campaigning for Clinton, saying, “The reason why I haven’t been vocal other than saying ‘I’m with her’ is because I didn’t know what to say that could actually pierce through all the noise, and the chaos and the disgusting vitriol that’s going on, and actually be heard.”
