U.S.A. Today is reporting that Republicans are trying to raise enough money for presidential candidate Marianne Williamson to keep her in future Democratic debates! In what seems an attempt to tar all the Democratic candidates with Williamson’s new age-y philosophy of love and loopy self-actualization, some Republicans would love to see Williamson repeating her June 27, 2019, debate performance at the July Democratic debate.
During the June 27, 2019, democratic presidential debate Williamson stated in her close: “This man [Donald Trump] has reached into the psyche of the American people, and he has harnessed fear for political purposes. So, Mr. President, if you’re listening, I want you to hear me please — you have harnessed fear for political purposes and only love can cast that out. So, I sir, I have a feeling you know what you’re doing. I’m going to harness love for political purposes. I will meet you on that field and, sir, love will win.”
Not surprisingly, there has been a lot of amusement about this statement on the Internet. It probably didn’t improve the Democrats’ image among the American people for one of their candidates to be offering up nonsense like this. But some Republicans want more …
The debate took place on a Thursday. “On Friday, she was attracting donations. From Republicans,” said U.S.A. Today. “GOP strategist Jeff Roe, who ran Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s 2016 presidential campaign, tweeted out to his 16,000 followers asking fellow Republicans “to donate $1 to keep this vibrant Democrat on the debate stage. One debate performance is not enough.”
“At least several people appear to have taken up the challenge based on responses to Roe, accompanied by copies of receipts of their campaign donations,” continued the U.S.A. Today article.
It’s doubtful the manager of Ted Cruz’s 2016 presidential campaign wants Williamson in the debates because he thinks she’s doing the Democrats any good.
