Oprah: Vote for Hillary even if you don't like her

Oprah Winfrey is urging people to vote for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton even if they don't find her personally appealing.

"There really is no choice, people," Winfrey said during an interview with evangelist T.D. Jakes. "All the people sitting around talking about 'I can't decide. I just don't know if I like her.' She's not coming over to your house! You don't have to like her. Do you like this country? You better get out there and vote!"

Winfrey said she has not been super politically active this election season because it's been so nasty.

"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 said.

Added Jakes: "It's scary, at a time that leadership is so critical."
