Disliking Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is no reason not to vote for her, according to Oprah Winfrey.

“There really is no choice, people,” she said during an interview that will air next Thursday on T.D. Jakes.

“I hear this all the time — you get in conversations and there’s not a person in this room who hasn’t been in the same conversation — where people say, ‘I just don’t know if I like her,’” she said.

For example, writing in the New York Times, David Brooks sought to explain why, after millions of dollars spent to make Clinton popular, she still isn’t.

“Clinton gives off an exclusively professional vibe: industrious, calculated, goal-oriented, distrustful. It’s hard from the outside to have a sense of her as a person; she is a role,” he wrote.

“This formal, career-oriented persona puts her in direct contrast with the mores of the social media age, which is intimate, personalist, revealing, trusting and vulnerable,” Brooks added. “It puts her in conflict with most people’s lived experience. Most Americans feel more vivid and alive outside the work experience than within. So of course to many she seems Machiavellian, crafty, power-oriented, untrustworthy.”

“There’s something about her manner, persona, voice, smirk that just grates on a lot of people. People don’t like to be talked down to, and she has a terrible habit of talking down to people, with that smirk,” commented author and historian Craig Shirley.

But Winfrey said the question is not Clinton’s personality, but her policies.

“She’s not coming over to your house!” said Winfrey.

“You don’t have to like her. Do you like this country? You better get out there and vote,” she said.

“Do you like democracy, or do you want a demagogue?” she said, attacking Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Winfrey insisted her relative silence throughout the campaign is not due to a lack of support for Clinton.

“The reason why I haven’t been vocal, other than saying I’m with her 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 said.
