Mike Pence Pathetically Insists He's 'Kind of a Big Deal Too' After Getting Upstaged by Oprah's Campaign Speech for Stacey Abrams

Vice President Mike Pence was forced to remind Republican voters in Georgia on Thursday that he's important. Oprah Winfrey is in Georgia today, too, knocking on doors and giving a speech to support Democrat Stacey Abrams, who is in a remarkably tight race for governor.


“I heard Oprah is in town today. I heard Will Ferrell was going door-to-door the other day. I’d like to remind Stacey and Oprah and Will Ferrell, I’m kind of a big deal, too,” the Vice President told supporters of Brian Kemp, Abrams' Republican opponent who stands accused of massive voter suppression in his current role of Secretary of State.

“And I’ve got a message for all of Stacey Abrams’ liberal Hollywood friends: This ain’t Hollywood. This is Georgia. And Georgia wants a governor that’s going to put Georgia values and Georgia first. And Brian Kemp is going to do just that,” Pence added, as The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Pence "said Thursday a vote for Brian Kemp is tantamount to support for President Donald Trump."
