President Obama’s campaign is getting some
help from one of the actresses from The Help! Octavia Spencer hit the
trail for President Obama over the weekend,according to The Root.
They write, “Spencer, wearing a 2012 T-shirt under a dark blazer and a
pin with the president's image on it, chatted, joked and took pictures
with the 30 or so patrons and visitors at Heads Up Barber Shop in
Charlotte. When someone said, "I loved you in that movie. Where's the
pie?" Spencer answered, "You don't want me to cook.” But she is serious
when it comes to the election, "We cannot forget to show up in November
-- otherwise, it's going to be back to where it was in 1980, and
trickle-down effect," she said. More from The Root.
