Author Marianne Williamson left millions of television viewers scratching their heads Tuesday night; bizarrely suggesting President Trump has awakened a “dark psychic force” during the Democratic debate.
“This is part of the dark underbelly of American society, the racism, the bigotry, and the entire conversation that we’re having here tonight. 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,” said Williamson.
Progressive and moderate Democrats squared-off Tuesday night on the first round of CNN’s presidential debates; with centrist lawmakers calling far-left policies “fairytale economics.”
“The ideological divide between Democratic presidential hopefuls came into focus Tuesday as leading progressive candidates Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren defended their liberal policies on healthcare and immigration against surprisingly energetic attacks from moderate rivals,” reports Yahoo News.
“The fault lines emerged immediately in the second debate of the 2020 Democratic primary race, with lesser-known candidates taking sharp digs and warning that forcing radical change could ensure President Donald Trump’s re-election,” adds the website.
Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders repeatedly called for massive, “structural” change to the US economy and political system on issues including Wall Street, healthcare, taxation, immigration, and more.
Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden will share the stage Thursday with Senator Kamala Harris; clearing the path for a potential rematch from weeks ago.
