BIZARRE WARNING: Democrat Marianne Williamson Says Trump Awakening ‘Dark Psychic Force’ in USA
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.

PITY PARTY: Cory Booker Unhappy that CNN Debate ‘Pitted Democrats Against Each Other’
Democratic presidential hopeful Cory Booker slammed CNN moderators during Wednesday night’s debate; complaining the network was “pitting Democrats against each other” as the candidates sparred over healthcare and immigration.
“The person that’s enjoying this debate most right now is Donald Trump, as we pit Democrats against each other while he is working right now to take away Americans’ health care,” said Booker in Detroit.
The Trump campaign’s communications director responded to Booker on social media within minutes, writing “Cory Booker: ‘The person who is enjoying this debate the most right now is Donald Trump.’ Fact Check: TRUE.”

Senator Booker escalated his war of words with President Trump earlier this month, saying he’d like to “punch” the Commander-in-Chief.
“Donald Trump is a guy who you understand he hurts you, and my testosterone sometimes makes me want to feel like punching him, which would be bad for this elderly, out-of-shape man that he is if I did that,” Booker told comedian Seth Meyers. “This physically weak specimen.”
“You don’t beat a bully like him fighting him on his tactics, on his terms, using his turf,” Booker said. “He’s the body-shamer, he’s the guy that tries to drag people in the gutter.”
“We will not beat Donald Trump by trying to be more like him, but by showing that we are not like him,” he added. “We are not weak morally. We are not weak mentally. We are a strong nation.”
According to insiders, Booker’s campaign is rapidly running out of cash.
The packed Democratic presidential field will likely become less crowded in the coming weeks, with major campaigns of national candidates quickly running out of cash heading into the second televised debate.
“Among those with the highest burn rates, according to Federal Election Commission records, are New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker and Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard. Former Maryland Rep. John Delaney was also listed as having spent several million more than he raised, but the candidate has since said the numbers were misreported,” reports Fox News.
“It’s never a good sign,” Larry Sabato, director of University of Virginia’s Center for Politics, said. “I’m not going to write them all off, let’s see what happens in the second debate.”
“I would say that for O’Rourke, and several of the others really, a stellar debate performance is essential,” Sabato said. “No one could watch his campaign and say that Beto O’Rourke was doing really well. He’s not. They expected a lot more than this.”
