Marianne Williamson says the Democratic National Convention reminded her of a ‘Marriott commercial’
The former Democratic primary candidate slammed the Democratic National Committee for putting on a commercial
Marianne Williamson — a former 2020 Democratic primary candidate — slammed the Democratic National Convention on Monday night for its lack of substance on how to stop systemic racism.
- Williamson responded to Mark Ruffalo, who tweeted: “Watching the #DemConvention. It’s so good to see so many diverse people coming together addressing racism and the promise of America. There is a sweetness and kindliness about this production.”
- Williamson said: “No I’m sorry but they did not address racism. They showed a lot of beautiful pictures of POC and made references to BLM, but there was not one mention of an actual policy to help end systemic racism. It’s like binge watching a Marriott commercial.”
I don’t get this “fall in line” stuff. Of course I’m voting for Joe and I have said that 1 million times. You might not think I’m helping, but I think a lot of people appreciate that we can be honest here and still make sure that Trump doesn’t win a second term.— Marianne Williamson (@marwilliamson) August 18, 2020
- Williamson later tweeted about peaceful protests, riots and police force. She also commented on how the Democratic National Committee is a private organization that doesn’t make any government decisions.
- She said she tried to like the convention on night one, though. “I wanted to like it. I really did, I promise I did.”
On Tuesday morning, Williamson tweeted her support for one of Michelle Obama’s quotes from Monday night.
- “Michelle Obama said this last night and I agree with her: “If you think things cannot possibly get worse, trust me, they can; and they will if we don’t make a change in this election.”
