Marianne Williamson’s Performance in the Democratic Debates Made Twitter Lose It
John Hickenlooper's face says what we were all feeling.
With a record number of candidates qualifying for the Democratic debates, there are those who are bound to fall through the cracks. While many candidates made an impact over the last two nights (Warren, Castro, Harris among them) several faded into the background. But there was one candidate, one little-known long shot who made viewers sit up in their seats and say, “who the f-ck is this lady?!” That lady is author and spiritual advisor Marianne Williamson.
Williamson, a sentient Mooncup filled with healing rose quartz, baffled viewers and fellow candidates alike with her off-the-wall responses and campaign promises. This turquoise-encrusted crystal ball of a woman promised to fight Trump with the power of love (must be a Huey Lewis and the News fan) and referred to the Prime Minister of New Zealand Jacinda Ardern as “girlfriend”. Viewers were stunned and delighted by the performance of what we can only describe as the human embodiment of Santa Fe, and were quick to share their feelings on Twitter. Here are some of our favorite tweets about everyone’s favorite kooky aunt Marianne Williamson:

And finally, here’s Kate McKinnon busting out her Marianne impression on Late Night with Seth Meyers:
“My plan is to gather all the sage in America and burn it.”
This is how talented Kate McKinnon is: She watched the debate then immediately went on Late Night with Seth Meyers and absolutely crushed an impression of Marianne Williamson. pic.twitter.com/leb5CU6wXe
