Oprah stumps for Stacey Abrams – Obama up next

While Stacy Abrams was propped up by the liberal media as the future of the Democratic Party after losing her 2018 bid for governor in the state of Georgia — a race Abrams did not concede when it became obvious that she had lost — she has proven to be not so awe-inspiring after all and is in real trouble in her second attempt to defeat now-Gov. Brian Kemp.

On Thursday, her campaign rolled out the big guns in Hollywood elitist Oprah Winfrey, who held a “virtual conversation” with Abrams that was billed as, “A Thriving Life.”

The event was also a fundraiser, though cash has not been the problem. Abrams “has raked in roughly $85 million” overall, according to the Daily Mail, which further noted that the Democrat announced this month that she raised $36 million in the 3rd quarter.

“All are invited to join this special event and hear more about Stacey’s unfinished business with the state of Georgia as she works to make history happen this November as the nation’s first Black female governor,” the fundraiser’s signup page states.

Abrams’ key selling point, it would seem, is the “historic” occasion of her becoming the nation’s first black, female governor, should she win.

Winfrey celebrated the fact that “all the paintings” in the Governor’s mansion will change should Abrams win, while the candidate touted in a tweet: “When I’m in the governor’s mansion, I will bring every Georgian’s story with me and fight for your future. Oh, and I will definitely change a few paintings.”

Doing her best to better humanize Abrams, Oprah mentioned the 2018 defeat WITHOUT pointing out the failure to concede, asking Abrams if she has a “Lord gimme a minute” moment:

Somewhat ironically, Winfrey was there for Abrams in 2018 as well but her efforts were unsuccessful.

As The Atlanta Journal-Constitution stated, Abrams “is relying on elements of the same playbook she did during her 2018 campaign for governor, when Winfrey and former President Barack Obama revved up supporters in the final weeks of the race.”

And while money and celebrity supporters are in abundant supply, turns out black voters, who are not overly impressed with a candidate who has taken on an elitist stature since 2018, are not.

“Abrams’ camp hopes Obama and Winfrey can specifically energize Black voters, the party’s most reliable supporters. Recent polls show Abrams lags behind U.S. Sen. Raphael Warnock, the state’s first Black senator, among African American voters,” the newspaper reported.

The Democrat had a regrettable moment this week when she referenced abortion as a means to counter high prices brought on by Bidenomics and its ensuing inflation.

“You cannot divorce being forced to carry an unwanted pregnancy from the economic realities of having a child,” she said during an appearance on MSNBC.
