Marianne Williamson says liberals are ‘mean’ and lie: ‘I thought the right did that’
September 3, 2019
Longshot Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson suggested in a new interview that she was surprised to find liberals are “so mean” and even lie — lashing out at the party’s treatment of her spiritually tinged campaign.
Williamson sat down with New Yorker editor David Remnick for a wide-ranging podcast conversation, in which she also denied being an anti-vaxxer. She was asked about her plan to take on President Trump with kindness and the politics of “love,” as well as the reception her campaign has gotten.
“I know this sounds naïve,” Williamson said. “I didn’t think the left was so mean. I didn’t think the left lied like this. I thought the right did that, I thought we were better.”

Williamson said “the haters in this country have been collectivized for political purpose” and added that liberal New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof would have been her ideal secretary of state before he condemned her candidacy.
