Let’s face it: Marianne Williamson was not going to be the Democrat nominee for President of the United States. That was never going to happen.
But now that she has ended her campaign to become the 46th president of our great nation America has lost something tremendous.
The comedic gold that are the speeches and incoherent ramblings of this eclectic candidate. She announced the suspension of the campaign on Friday.
“I ran for president to help forge another direction for our country. I wanted to discuss things I felt needed to be discussed that otherwise were not. I feel that we have done that,” she said in a letter to supporters.
“I stayed in the race to take advantage of every possible opportunity to share our message. With caucuses and primaries now about to begin, however, we will not be able to garner enough votes in the election to elevate our conversation any more than it is now.
“The primaries might be tightly contested among the top contenders, and I don’t want to get in the way of a progressive candidate winning any of them. As of today, therefore, I’m suspending my campaign,” she said.
Williamson, who is a self-help guru and a friend of media mogul Oprah Winfrey, had some of the best lines at any of the Democratic debates.
She wanted her administration to create a Department of Peace and wanted to promote economic justice to repair, what she believes was, the damage from trickledown economics.
She promoted paying over $100 billion in reparations for slavery over a decade, stricter gun control, equal rights for LGTBQ couples and more progressive ideas.
Her campaign was focused on “love” and positive energy and other new age nonsense that would have made America a much weaker nation.
Of course, and we cannot stress this enough, no one took her seriously enough to ever make her a contender for the presidency.
But we will miss her ridiculous bumper sticker catch phrases that read like Facebook memes. They sound good but mean nothing.
Her greatest and most hilarious moment came in the July Democratic debate where she warned of the “dark psychic force” behind President Donald Trump’s administration.
“If you think any of this wonkiness is going to deal with this dark psychic force of the collectivized hatred that this president is bringing up in this country, then I’m afraid that the Democrats are going to see some very dark days,” she said.
The line went viral on Twitter, Facebook and other platforms for the hilarity of it. And now it looks like the “dark psychic force” has defeated her.
“To the remaining Democratic candidates, I wish you all my best on the road ahead. It was an honor being among you. Whichever one of you wins the nomination, I will be there with all my energy and in full support,” she said.
“Finally, these are not times to despair; they are simply times to rise up. Things are changing swiftly and dramatically in this country, and I have faith that something is awakening among us. A politics of conscience is still yet possible. And yes….love will prevail,” she said.
Yes love will prevail. And because we love America, we will elect President Donald Trump again and not one of your wackadoo friends.
