You know what they say: If you can’t take the heat, you should stay out of the kitchen.
Politics in the 21st century are a mess, especially here in the United States. The intentional division we face in the media has come home to roost, stagnating the work of our public servants and goading the masses ever closer to violence.
On the debate stage, it isn’t much prettier. Candidates are attacking one another brutally simply to generate soundbites and dominate the “news” industry bandwidth for a few scant hours.
2020 democratic long-shot Marianne Williamson is learning this the hard way, it seems, and she certainly wasn’t prepared for it.
Williamson sat down with New Yorker editor David Remnick for a wide-ranging podcast conversation, in which she also denied being an anti-vaxxer. She was asked about her plan to take on President Trump with kindness and the politics of “love,” as well as the reception her campaign has gotten.
“I know this sounds naïve,” Williamson said. “I didn’t think the left was so mean. I didn’t think the left lied like this. I thought the right did that, I thought we were better.”
Williamson then went on to lament a new vacancy in her hypothetical cabinet.
Williamson said “the haters in this country have been collectivized for political purpose” and added that liberal New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof would have been her ideal secretary of state before he condemned her candidacy.
“But then I read that he can’t stand me, so he probably wouldn’t want to work for me,” Williamson said.
The California democrat rose to prominence as a self-help author and spiritualist, and was one of the most searched candidates on Google after a debate performance in which she decried President Trump as a “dark, psychic force”.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
