Fox News reports that Oprah Winfrey cold-called Texas voters to question encourage voters to go to the polls this coming November.
Her first call was with someone named Christian, who appeared to be very enthused about getting his vote out.
“Since I can’t go knocking on people’s doors this election, I spent today talking with @betoorourke and calling Texas voters to make sure they have a voting plan,” she wrote. ”
So get ready like Christian because early voting starts TOMORROW 10/13 for the Lone Star State! Visit poweredxpeople.org to find your nearest polling place.”
The media mogul experienced the tables being turned as she was the one left speechless during a phone call with a Texas voter, as he enthusiastically shared his voting plan.
Anyone else surprised that her commentary wasn’t riddled with political bias?
I was literally just awaiting that “I knew it” moment.
Additionally, I know a lot of us on the right are very enthusiastic about a voting plan… but probably not in a resulting manner that Winfrey would favor, and I can’t freaking wait.
From Fox News:
In the clip, Oprah wasted no time getting to the nitty-gritty of her call script when she asked Christian where he fell on a scale of 1 to 10 – how ready he was to begin the early voting process in Texas.

“I’m an 11,” Christian declared, adding that he and his significant other would be up bright and early to hit the polls for the first day of early voting in the Lone Star state.
He added that given the scope of this year’s election, he felt it was a “must” to not only cast an early ballot but to ensure others have an opportunity to make their voices heard as well. Christian said he’d even give friends rides to the polls if need be.
“You’re my first call and you’re already an 11!” Oprah raved. “I don’t know what to say about that! That’s fantastic.”
Winfrey wrote in the video caption that since she wasn’t able to go door-knocking amid the coronavirus pandemic, she’d be hitting the phones to make the message loud and clear.
