Hillary Clinton Has Oprah’s Vote!

We all know Oprah‘s influence can move mountains, so when she puts her brand behind something or someone, people listen.

The media mogul recently made it known she’s voting for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

While attending the premiere of OWN’s new original series, “Greenleaf,” which she appears in, Oprah told “Entertainment Tonight,””Regardless of your politics, it’s a seminal moment for women. What this says is there is no ceiling; that ceiling just went ‘Boom!’ It says anything is possible when you can be leader of the free world…I’m with her.”

She continued, saying, “I’ve seen her determination to give every American a fair shot at opportunity, no matter how tough the fight was. That’s what has always driven her, and it still does…So I want those of you who’ve been with me from the beginning of this incredible journey to be the first to know that I’m with her.”

This is not the first time Oprah announced her endorsement for a presidential candidate. If you remember, back in 2008, she backed a Senator from Chicago named Barack Obama. We see how that turned out.

Many celebrities made their support for Clinton known including the likes of Kerry Washington, Shonda Rhimes, Viola Davis, Ellen Pompeo, K. Michelle and President Obama himself.
