A couple of weeks ago, Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson was caught on a hot mic blasting her fellow Democrats for being so vile.
She had expressed that she was he was shocked to learn during her presidential campaign that the left is “as mean as the right.”
“What does it say that Fox News is nicer to me than the lefties are? What does it say that the conservatives are nicer to me?”
“It’s such a bizarre world,” the presidential candidate continued. “You know, I’m such a lefty. I mean, I’m a serious lefty, but they’re so– I didn’t think the left was as mean as the right. They are.”
Her remarks came after receiving backlash from the left after a tweet which she has since deleted,
“The Bahamas, Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas … may all be in our prayers now. Millions of us seeing Dorian turn away from land is not a wacky idea; it is a creative use of the power of the mind. Two minutes of prayer, visualization, meditation for those in the way of the storm.”

The Daily Wire reports,
After Bolling asked Williamson why the tweet was deleted, the candidate stated that she shouldn’t have taken the tweet down, but that she panicked.
She then took the Democratic Party to task for “condescending attitudes” regarding spirituality:
What could be more traditional than to talk about praying? This is not bizarre. A prayer is a power of the mind. That’s what prayer is. I’ll tell you something – and I’m a Democrat – but if we want to expand our base, we really need to drop any condescending attitudes toward people of faith.
This idea of mocking someone for suggesting that we pray, whether it comes from the Left or the Right, it’s not good. When you’re a person of faith, this doesn’t mean you’re less intelligent; it doesn’t mean you don’t believe in science; it doesn’t mean that you’re uninformed. It means … you believe the power of prayer is a power as well.
