Oprah is with Her. Of course. And here’s why.

“Her” is naturally Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Appearing on the T.D. Jakes nationally syndicated talk show, Oprah Winfrey says there really is only one choice in the 2016 presidential election. She said she hasn’t been vocal about her beliefs because she didn’t believe she could say anything that would cut through the noise.

But with 17 days left before the election, she’s not taking any chances just in case her football field range voice can be heard around the nation.

With her hair in a high ponytail and donning stern, thick, black tortoise-framed glasses, Oprah explained, “The reason why I haven’t been vocal ….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.”

She stressed that there is no question here as to who voters should choose.

“There really is no choice, people,” she said, lamenting all the people who are “sitting around” and can’t decide between Clinton and Donald Trump.

Now this is what she really wants to say.

“People say, ‘I just don’t know if I like her.’ She not coming over to yo house,” Oprah said to a blast of audience laughter. “You. Don’t. Have. To. Like. Her. You don’t have to like her. Do you like this country? 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?”

The episode is scheduled to air on Oct. 27.
