Turn up!

Former President Barack Obama jetted to Forbes Arena at Morehouse College in Atlanta on Friday to speak at a rally for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. She's currently locked in a super tight race with Republican Brian Kemp. POTUS drilled in everyone's head how important it is to vote, especially in this election since it could be the "most important of our lifetime." And he's right.

"I'm hear for one simple reason: To ask you to vote," President O said. "The consequences of any of us staying home are profound because America is at a crossroads ... The character of our country is on the ballot."

He also addressed Trump and Republicans using scare tactics to keep us divided while using "rhetoric that is designed to make us angry -- to make us fearful."
