Marianne Williamson – Running for President on a Morality-Driven Platform | The Daily Show

August 28, 2019


-Welcome to the show. -Thank you
so much for having me on. It is an absolute pleasure
to have you on, especially considering
your journey in this race. When your name
was first announced, uh, it was
“Oprah’s spiritual advisor,” and I remember being like,
“I’m sorry, what?” Um, and then, you know,
when the debates came around you’re standing on the stage… And you are a spiritual person, you are somebody who speaks,
you know, in larger ideas that just what is happening. It seemed like
you were out of your depth. After the second debate, though, you were the most Googled name
in, I think, 49 states, and all of a sudden,
people went from “Marianne Williamson the joke”
to “Huh, maybe, uh, she says a few things we like.
Maybe she’s got a plan.” Why do you think you’re
connecting with so many people who first thought
that you were a joke? Well, first of all, even if you
look at the first debate, the substance of my words
were as serious as any substance
on that debate stage. It’s the way I delivered
my words was a little funny in a couple of places, but the
things I actually talked about -were as substantial as what I
talked about this time. -Right. I’m not saying anything
everybody I know isn’t saying. People have
a deeper conversation than the establishment,
conventional, political, uh, dialogue presents. And so I’m simply
talking about things -the way I believe people
talk these days. -Right. People understand
that more is going on than just externalities,
and people understand that if you want
to transform your life you’re going to have to
addr-address things on a deeper level than just
the fixes on the outside. You-you… Well, you do speak
about levels, consistently. Uh, levels or-or higher powers. For instance, that’s what
you said at one of the debates. You said, “This needs help
from a higher power.” Now, when I heard that
I was like, “But you’re running “for president
of the United States, so… is that the second-highest
power? What is…” This is a genuine question.
I would want to know, like, what-what do you believe
that means? Well, it’s interesting, because
Abraham Lincoln spoke that way. And this is… We’re living
in an aberrational time that the left has become
so over-secularized in its conversation.
When I was growing up, people like Martin Luther King,
people like Bobby Kennedy… Bobby Kennedy talked about
the soul of America -and a contest for the soul
of America. -Right. It’s only been in the last few
decades that the left has become so over-secularized
in its language. Traditionally, on the right,
there has been a focus -on issues of private morality.
-Right. But, traditionally, on the left,
there was a focus on issues of public morality. War and peace is a moral issue. But to our… W…
How we tax the rich and make it so much easier
for rich people to make… get richer and harder for
everybody else to even make it– that’s a moral issue. The fact that we have millions
of American children who go to school every day,
chronically traumatized, in schools that don’t even have
the adequate school supplies with which
to teach a child to read, and if that child cannot re…
learn to read by the age of eight, the chances
of high school graduation are drastically diminished and
the chances of incarceration are drastically increased–
in the richest country -in the world–
that’s a moral issue. -Mm-hmm. The fact that we have
13 million children who are hungry in America
is a moral issue. So, to me, issues of politics
should-should take as much moral consideration
and reflection as anything else. And the fact that we have
a society where we have made economic principle…
not an economic principle that has led us
to anything other than the largest wealth inequality
in-in almost a hundred years, one percent of Americans owning
more wealth than the bottom 90%, 40% of all Americans
struggling on a daily basis– what are we doing? -It’s interesting that you…
-What are we doing? Right, but you-you
have the numbers, clearly. And it feels like
you have intentionally geared your message
towards larger issues and-and a larger idea. I think,
in one of the first debates, you even said,
you specifically said, “It’s one thing
to go into the nitty-gritty, “but we’re not speaking
to the larger issues. “Donald Trump didn’t win by
talking about the nitty-gritty, he spoke about
the idea of America.” Is that what you think
people need to hear– is-is the idea of America
versus just the numbers? It’s the idea of leadership. It’s what I believe we need
in a president. Franklin Roosevelt said that
the, uh, administrative aspect of the presidency,
he said, is secondary. He said the primary role of the
presidency is moral leadership. It’s not what I believe
people need to hear, but it’s the conversation
I believe we need to have in order to navigate
the times in which we live. Right. Do you think, then, Donald Trump has as much
responsibility as a leader to be morally responsible
as he is in what he’s doing? Because people, many people
on the right will say, “Well, look, I mean, he says
some things and, you know, “yeah, I wish he wouldn’t tweet “and I wish
he wouldn’t say that, but at the end of the day,
he’s getting results.” Do you think America
should just be results-driven, or do you think there’s another
aspect of being president? Well, first of all,
look at the results. I don’t know what television
shows they’re watching, I don’t know what newspapers
they’re reading– this is an administration that
has gutted the Clean Air Act, it’s gutted the Clean Water Act, it has given permission
for chemical companies to sell pesticides that we know
are harmful to a child’s health. This is a… a…
an administration that, for the sake of $350 billion
in arms sales to Saudi Arabia is willing
to give aerial support to a genocidal war where
tens of thousands of people have died of starvation,
many of which are children, in a way that would make
our grandparents roll over in their graves–
these are the results. So when people say
he’s gotten results, yeah, he’s gotten results
so that a few of his friends can get even richer. These are the results
that we want? -This is…
-Let me ask you this, then. Let me ask you this. If I were to agree with you
on that point and say: Okay, you’re right,
these are moral arguments that people should be having. We’ve seen that Donald Trump
is willing and able to find people to write laws
that will support how he feels. -That is correct. -So what laws
would you then come in with on day one, what laws
would you try and enact that would comp…
you know what I mean, that would complement
how you feel? Because we know how you feel
about the issues, But what laws do you think,
concrete laws, -need to match that feeling?
-Well… absolutely. Bad laws got us here; good laws
will get us out of here. -Right. -First of all,
we need to pass a law, and not only legislation but probably also
constitutional amendment, for public funding
of federal campaigns. -Because right now we have a…
-(applause, cheering) (clears throat) Because the undue influence
of money, particularly corporate money,
on our governmental policy is the cancer underlying
all these other cancers. So that’s number one. -That’s what we’ve got
to deal with. -Mm-hmm. Then we need a massive infusion
of economic hope and opportunity into the life
of the average American. We’re going to get there
by repealing the 2017 tax cut, $2 trillion tax cut, that gave
83 cents of every dollar to the very richest individuals
and corporations. You put back in
the middle class tax cut. Notice that that’s not
an economic stimulus, that bill. Then you close those subsidies,
you stop those subsidies. Like, why did we pay $26 billion to the fossil fuel companies
alone last year in subsidies? Martin Luther King said:
“If they give it to rich people, “they call it a subsidy.
If they give it to poor people, they call it a handout.” Then you realize that our
government actually advocated and-and passed a law against the interests
of the American people, making it, because of all
the lobbying done by Big Pharma, that the United States
government cannot… cannot actually negotiate
for drug prices with big
pharmaceutical companies. Then I agree with Senator Warren
that we should have a three percent tax
on billionaires. We have a two percent… we
should have a two percent tax on people, $50 million or more. You do all that stuff, Trevor,
we’ve got some cash on hand. And then we start doing
what we should be doing. We take care of the…
(clears throat) -(cheering, whistling, applause)
-Mm! At the debates… one of your lines has become
iconic, and that is, uh, “We are not dealing
with a health care system, we are dealing
with a sick care system.” What does that mean? What it means is that
the conversation we’re having is how to treat people
once they’re sick. We also have to talk about why there’s so much more
chronic disease in America. -And why is that? -Well, because
of our chemical policies, our agricultural policies,
our food policies, our-our environmental policies,
and even our economic policies, given that our economic policies cause so much economic stress and anxiety on a daily basis. And stress causes illness. But so many times we’re not
talking about those things because in order to talk
about those things, we’d have to talk about policies
with chemical companies, and agricultural companies
and oil and gas and so forth. You-You seem to be somebody who is constantly trying
to find the balance between the spiritual
and the physical, you know. The ideas of what we do in the world,
and then what we feel, and what is changing
who we are as human beings. You have come under fire,
though, for some of those views
and how they’ve come across. For instance, people have said
Marianne Williamson is against vaccines, because,
I think, at one point, you compared forcing people
to get vaccines to Orwellian or Draconian ideas. What are your views on vaccines? Well, I’ve never said anything
bad about vaccines. I am pro vaccines. Infectious disease
is a very serious issue. And any time that there’s
a medical intervention, there’s both benefit and risk, and the government must always come down on the side
of the public good. There has been a conversation
over the last few years about mandatories,
and about exemptions, -religious exemptions,
personal exemptions. -Right. And when I made the comment
“that sounds Orwellian or Draconian,” uh,
I shouldn’t have said that. And I’m sorry about saying that. It was a glib way to talk
about that conversation. But I think
with all of these things, you know, I’m not anti vax. I’m-I’m the last– I’m the least
anti-science person, I’m the least anti-medicine
person you’ll ever meet. I’ve never told anyone
to get off their meds. I’ve never told anyone
not to take medication. Um… Right. People said that
specifically in and around, -for instance, depression.
-Yeah. People– You know,
you’ve spoken at length about how you feel people should
be dealing with depression. And some people felt like
you were saying, you know, “Get off your meds.
You don’t need them if you are depressed
as a person.” Well, no one felt that
who read what I said. That’s the problem
we have today. -But people, people don’t read,
though. -People don’t read. -But I-I found it…
-(laughter) I found it very disappointing, even on the left,
given that I am a progressive, that so much has been–
that has been repeated about me related to those things
come from websites, tweets, that are no different
than the, than the Enquirer. -Right.
-And I think that, you know, I think when you’re running
for office, if people disagree with you,
that’s democracy, but when people disagree
with you based on a false picture of you, a mischaracterization of you, that’s damaging
to our democracy. So what do you think people who struggle with depression
should do? Well, I think the issue
is what’s depression? There is, uh, deep depression. First of all,
I have never, um– Psychotherapeutic drugs
clearly have a, have a place
in some people’s lives. And I’ve never had any,
and never wandered into a lane having to do
with serious mental illness. What I’m talking about
is a spectrum of normal human despair. And with that spectrum
of normal human despair, I have 35 years of experience working very up close
and personal with people within that spectrum
of normal human despair. People who have been divorced,
whose lovers left, their spouse left,
someone they love died, uh, they had
a professional failure, uh, they went bankrupt,
their child is on drugs– there are all kinds of serious
stresses in people’s lives that are not a mental illness. So you feel that the U.S.
overprescribes? -Do you think that’s what it is?
-I, uh, you know, there’s this– People talk these days,
“mental health experts,” there are as many
“mental health experts” who are sounding the cry
with a concern about the over-prescription -of antidepressants now,
-That’s true. as there are talking about
the under-prescription. And, excuse me,
but what are we…? We are now living at a time where attorney generals
all over this country– it’s, I think,
something like 47 states– are now indicting
pharmaceutical executives for their known role
in the opioid crises. So, clearly, the government,
somewhere along the line, the fact that we now know that these
pharmaceutical executives overprescribed,
over-manufactured and over-marketed
painkillers. It’s not that painkillers
don’t have a place. Painkillers certainly
have a place, but we know that the greed led to predatory practices
on Big Pharma. Clearly, the government– somebody wasn’t regulating
correctly. All I’m saying
is that on everything we should, uh, should know that the American people
should feel safe. Clearly,
the FAA was too cozy -with-with Boeing,
-Boeing. or we wouldn’t have
the Boeing MAX disasters. Clearly, the EPA is-is-is
too cozy with Dow Chemical
or we wouldn’t be selling these pesticides
that we know harm a developing child’s brain. And, clearly, the FDA has been
too close with Big Pharma in the fact that we have
this opioid crises. This is not dangerous
to discuss. People are saying I’m crazy
and dangerous. I think what’s dangerous
and a little bit crazy is that we’re not discussing it. -And the fact…
-(cheering and applause) Let’s-let’s discuss… Let’s discuss, then,
one of the bigger issues that has really resonated
with many people from the debate, -and that is the issue
in and around reparations. -Yes. Where Marianne Williamson
at one point in the debate seemed like you were talking
about, you know, feelings and-and our stresses
as human beings and how to evolve
and how to find that center, when it came to reparations,
you came with the numbers. You were like, “Here’s
what black people are owed. “Here’s how much they’re owed. “Here’s how much black people
should be paid by America. “This is not a favor. This is repaying a debt.” Why have you been so adamant
about this issue? Because you’ve been in it
from the beginning. This has been one
of your core issues. Why? I’ve been talking about this
since my book Healing the Soul of America
came out in 1997. When you said earlier I seem to be balancing spiritual
and material, it’s not about balancing. It’s about applying
the spiritual to the material. -Hmm. -It’s about applying
spiritual principle in a practical way. One of those
spiritual principles is you can’t have
the future you want if you’re not willing
to clean up the past. Now, when Catholics go
to confession or when Jews,
on the holiest day of the year, the day of Yom Kippur, the days the Jew
confesses the sin, has a day of atonement… In Alcoholics Anonymous,
you’re told that you have to take
a fearless moral inventory and admit the exact nature
of your character defects. This is as true of a nation
as it is of an individual because all that a nation is
is a group of people. So the same psychological and
emotional processes are at play. America will not have
the future that we want if we’re not willing to clean up this original character defect
of racism. Now, I do not believe… It’s not my belief
or my experience that the average American
is a racist. It’s not. But I do think
that the average American is woefully undereducated
about the history of race in the United States. -So I find…
-(cheering and applause) So I find– and I find this in
the whitest states in America– that when you actually… I become a little
American history teacher for a few minutes,
and I talk about the fact that the first slaves
were brought over in six… -enslaved persons brought over
in 1619. -Mm-hmm. Slavery not abolished till 1865. That’s 250 years, followed by another 100 years of institutionalized violence
against black people. That’s 350 years
of institutionalized violence. That’s longer than this country
has been in existence. I tell people
about Tecumseh Sherman at the end of the Civil War promising to every
former slave family of four 40 acres and a mule. Because think about it. You’ve been a slave,
and now you’re free, but as Martin Luther King said
100 years later, they were freed,
but what were they freed to? So, I’m not minimizing
the sacrifices or struggles or successes of any of our ancestors,
black or white, but the issue
of economic restitution, that gap that existed
at the end of the Civil War has simply not been addressed. It has not been achieved,
and it’s time. So, Germany has given
$89 billion in reparations to Jewish organizations
since the end of World War II. Doesn’t mean
the Holocaust didn’t happen, but those reparations
have gone far towards establishing
reconciliation between Germany
and the Jews of Europe. And in 1988, Ronald Reagan signed
the American Civil Liberties Act where we gave
to every surviving prisoner of the Japanese internment camps
in World War II between $20,000 and $22,000. So the idea of a people
that has wronged another people giving financial restitution in acknowledgment of that wrong, in acknowledgment
of a debt to be paid and a willingness to pay it
is not a fringe idea and should not be treated
as such. -MAN: Preach!
-(cheering and applause) I’ll-I’ll tell…
I’ll tell you this. You sound a lot more sane when you have more than a minute
to speak. Marianne Williamson, everybody.

Only registered users can comment.

  1. I would love to see her in charge of domestic policy and Tulsi Gabbard in charge of foreign policy. This country might be sane for once.

  2. Go Marrianne!! I have been listening to you for years. Found you through Hay House publishing. You trying to make happen all that I believe. Keep up the great conversations and talks with those that will get your word out there. Trevor, your the best!!

  3. Trevor's interviews are the best place to get to know the democratic candidates. By the end of each interview I feel I have a good sense of the candidate's position and strengths.

  4. Honest question: about reparations for slavery, how exactly do we go about identifying, with a satisfactory degree of precision, who should be receiving payments?

  5. That’s why they didn’t want her to speak for very long. She’s incredibly sane and knowledgeable. They don’t want her to have a chance so making her look crazy is their best bet.

  6. 13:49 Folks don't want to hear this truth tho.
    15:50 Folks don't want to hear this truth tho.
    But yet #RedLining is a figment of our imagination
    All we ever wanted was opportunity on an equal playing field. But No… "Tighten Up Your Boot Straps" they said; "Just Work Hard" they said;
    Kinda easy to say when the work was done for you and you can just pass down to generations while shutting out those that bled and died for an existence they were forced to live.

  7. I absolutely love her I hope that she actually gets a place in our government she is amazing she says everything that is real everything that is true she is my new hero

  8. I don't see Joe Biden or Kamala Harris or any of those hacks getting on talk shows and podcasts and appearing genuine to the American People

  9. I don’t know about you people but I don’t want to be forced to take any medications by the state, whether it be antidepressants or vaccines, it is something I should decide to do with my doctor. Not coerced into. Just a thought:)

  10. Maryanne speaks absolute truth.
    Morality ethics and principles, this is what true leadership looks and feels like.
    My dream team would be TulsiMaryanne2020

  11. Marianne is lovely, but I prefer Andrew Yang's policies, he's so freaking smart!! He would make this country amazing!
    #yangGang

  12. her opinions make her an easy target for major news outlets. every station talks about this woman as though she's on hard drugs meanwhile she's SUCH a sweet endearing person.. I hope this video spreads like wild fire and she gains more supporters. it would def be a change of pace for the Whitehouse for sure.

  13. Marianne Williamson once implied that the aids epidemic could be improved if the victims had more love in their hearts.

  14. It's funny and sad at the same time. People hear cute things and vote that. It's rhetoric, people! Did the USA change in any substantial way during Obama's 8 years? Arms export, war, suppression, murder, inequality, justice? Such big talk and promises before he was elected. EIGHT YEARS later – and the country was still the same. Forget the bs please.

  15. I have just one concern…not with Ms. Williamson as a presidential candidate but re: concerns about an increasing secularity all around. Ms. Williamson says, "America is becoming more secularized…" and that "We live in aberrational times that the Left has become over-secularized in its conversation…" Well, yes… but why?
    I think that Conservatives and so-called "Christians" hijacked religiosity and talk of the moral high ground and used these to hijack development of public policy with a Right-leaning bent. What is the Left to do than seek to clarify that fake (religious) piety cannot dictate public policy and should be divorced from any rational discussions about life, economics, social policy, etc. This is NOT an aberration. This was a logical outcome to the madness of fundamentalist Christianity, religious nuts, etc. "Issues of politics should take as much moral consideration and reflection as anything else," Williamson further states. On closer look, the Left sought to do this, by clarifying that we cannot allow any form of Fundamentalist religion and religious piety to run rampant in the public sphere… Shepherding rational, tolerant, intelligent conversations around public policy that is respectful of diversity, even of religious diversity, is necessary although in the end, it all sounds like it's overly secular.
    There is nothing wrong with this. This is, PARTLY, what the history of competing religiosity in the public sphere has bequeathed to us. If we shun the trend toward a more secular outlook and conversation without understanding the history that bequeaths it and the oppressive intolerance this secularity seeks to contain, we can only come up with a bad version of "The Handmaid's Tale" society! That would be utterly tragic. We cannot, we should not, we must not allow Fundamentalist Christians and right-wing Conservatives to re-make society in their image.

  16. MARIANNE WILLIAMSON ROCKS!!! I asked her to run for President during Obama’s second term. I think she got the message. TREVOR You’re The Best!!! 🥰

  17. Marianne is the type of principled and thoughtful leader we need. The crooked DNC is trying to keep her off the debate stage. Donate to her campaign so she can stay in the game and challenge the status quo discourse. She is challenging us to show up and evolve as a country, unlike most other candidates.

  18. I love her but I wish she would also talk about how crazy the senate and congress has become and how we need to that the govt as an operating system to limit waste and weed out corruption as well.

  19. She’s got my vote, but Americans are soo stupid. They won’t vote for her simply because they wont understand her lmao especially rural America. Further, ABC & NBC are too busy paying Joe Biden to let her speak that long, that’s why he was in the middle for both debates 😭

  20. She is more on target about the bigger picture than any of the other candidates. i'm sorry trevor didn't get into with her, what i think she is making one of her best points about–trump having tapped into a vein of hatred and fear, and using that to get elected. and that democrats aren't doing anything to combat that. And by the way, Trump talks constantly about god stuff-making the white house ok for christmas again, etc., yet she mentions spiritual and they write her off as a nut.

  21. Thank you daily show, for giving Ms Marianne Williamson adequate time to speak, she’s very deserving of it as are the American people

  22. She's saying a lot more that's critically important than all the other candidates. She'd have my vote (if I could) – and that's from someone who likes Bernie.

  23. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but, Libtards have no morals!!!!!!!!!! They are about # 1 and that's all!!!!!!!! They do nothing unless THEY , at some point, get something in return!!!! I.E. george clooney , worth over $500,000,000 , gives away $5,000,000 to some friends but, makes sure the press gets the memo of his good deed so everyone that supposedly gives a fuck sees!! Just saying! Have a great day!

  24. Good God, she thinks 'secular' and 'moral' can't coexist in the same world view. She's the only candidate among all 24 that I would not vote for before Donald Trump, and I never thought I'd say that about any candidate.

  25. Can we talk for a moment about the depression thing?
    Stress of any kind over a longer period of time can change the neurochemical balance of the brain. She is right that that's more normal than people think and I am sure she knows more about the politics on the pharmaceutical side than I ever could but I feel like playing those cases down does more harm than good.

    "I can't be depressed, I just lost a loved one. It's normal to grieve. It will get better over time."

    That might be true and might be not. If one feels depressed and isn't sure one should get it checked out. Just because a neurological symptom is rooted in an emotional situation one can't assume that it hasn't become a physiological issue that can and maybe needs to be treated with meds.

    Maybe I'm talking from a point of privilege living in a country with a kinda better-working health system. I hope I was able to get the point across with English being my 3rd language.

  26. If you are to change the human experience in a significant way America this is what you'll choose. Marriane understands that human intervention has been applied and has failed many a time. There's great hope for you America.

  27. You’ve got to pay attention to this divine intervention, they are angels, Marianne is an angel and sets the moral compass and leadership that America long forgot about. Never on a political stage have we been endowed with such leaders to emerge to give the voices of reason, sanity, love and the courage of moral leadership. Believe !

  28. She’s articulate and she has points on certain issues for sure but telling us we need supernatural beliefs to be moral is ridiculous. We didn’t abolish slavery for almost 2 millennia after the Bible was written. For many centuries, religion allowed child marriages, rape and the massacre of native people. The Bible doesn’t include slavery, rape, child marriage in the 10 commandments because it was all seen as moral in the Bronze Age. I’m agnostic and am a regular volunteer at homeless shelters and do whatever I can to help. Supernatural beliefs do not equal morality. 2,000 years has proven that.

  29. Reparations is a form of revenge. It is immoral and wrong to punish innocent souls who do not carry hatred. It is better to deal with the current generation to remove that ideology from glory. 👀 racism against European Americans is at an all time high and further victimizing them will only create more racism in the future. The past is the past the future is the future. lets not taint the future with revenge upon innocence.

    If you want revenge then go against the systems that subtly promote racism, segregation and stereotypes.
    Seek out all instances where it is promoted and eliminate it.
    Culture and race are different.

    We need to start seeing ourselves as Americans First (((((THEN)))) whatever subcultures we are attracted and belong to.
    To be American is to be multi cultured.
    If you can accept and adopt others cultures then you have the capacity to be a true American.

    Segregation, Elitism, Racism, now Greed, and Corruption, are all failed experiments in the land of the proud, the land of the free.

    To be American is to be a part of a rainbow of cultures united for a better freedom liberty and justice for all.
    We are the Americans united by ideals and cultures from around the world.
    We need to unite as a people above and beyond our roots.
    A beautiful group of HueMans linked in a common struggle to cleanse the problems of Anger, Greed and Corruption.
    So that our children’s Children’s Children’s do not have to live under suppressing circumstances, stereotypical attitudes of hatred, psychological manipulation, or any perverted form of governing.

    Freedom is taught here but their is no freedom if the people are locked in idealistic war.
    That is called a prison of Anger.
    People Suppressed by hatred.
    Stuck In cycles of revenge.
    👁 see a corruption of the definition of freedom.

    Why does a small group benefit off the suffering of the people?
    Do the rich experience true freedom?
    while the poor hope and dream to be like them. are they free?
    Why is it common to chill yourself, harder your heart? To achieve success?
    just to see the supposed / true definition of such?
    Is that Corruption?

    Individualism + Selfishness * Arrogance = ???

    Who is really paying the price for all this Success??
    Is it not the children??
    Is it not our Innocence?.
    Is it not our Humanity?
    Is it not our planet?
    Is it not the countless species around us?
    Is it not our future?

    War has sat long enough within the human heart and mind.
    Is it not time to eradicate it and step back into being creators?

    With 💗✌️🙏🖖🤝.

    Your Brother Z

  30. Say yes to what we know as the truth. The Koran wages war on anyone who doesn't follow Muhammad. As a Kafir (unbeliever) how are you going to stop the spread of Islam? In twenty years Islam will be the second largest religion in the USA.

  31. Yes, Marianne, The U.S. is a place where thousands of fat, overweight, obese children go to bed hungry every night. Marianne your display of economic ignorance is striking. God help us if this female fool should be elected to office.

  32. Why isn't this video w the other Dem presidential candidate videos? Marianne Williamson's POV shld DEF be part of the Democratic debate, and the Democratic presidential primary. These are issues that need to be talked about, and we need to know where the other candidates stand on them. Plus, she actually has concrete ideas and concrete plans that make sense. End corp welfare, tax assets as well as income, get rid of the Trump tax cuts, these are no brainers, undo all the damage Spanky has done to the EPA, reinstitute the regulations he abolished. Every Dem shld be asked if they line up w these ideas, and, if they're for Reparations, bc, yeah, we've owed black people for a long time, black people literally built this country, with their bare hands, particularly in the south, while whites tortured them daily. There were no laws protecting slaves, so white ppl cld do anything they wanted to them and face no consequences, so rape and bloody torture was rampant.

    Much of the evil Spanky has done he's done with Execute Orders, coz the Dems haven't been playing ball anymore than the GOP did when Obama was in ofc, so Spanky has been copying Obama, and doing everything by executive order. So, just as Spanky tried to undo everything Obama did – and Dubya tried to undo everything Clinton did, which also destroyed the boom economy created by a Democrat, and also widened economic disparity, while playing racial politics – the next Dem president shld undo everything Spanky has done. Wipe his memory from the face of the earth.

  33. Love this!! But when will Native Americans receive their proper restitution? When their water runs black with oil or Flames from a faucet? What are we doing about that 500 years of genocide still continuing today….

  34. This is appalling to me, that people are persuaded that someone is qualified to be president because like her and she says such nice things about love and stuff. I listened carefully: she didn't give specifics on implementing a single thing she said she's in favor of . Before everybody declares me Satan's spawn, I'll say I don't dislike or think she has no function in the world, but she is not telling you how she will govern. MW is Trump for liberals. Trumpers just like Trump; they know he's incompetent and probably crazy and unpredictable, but they love him and think he loves them. That's it. Btw, referring to the soul of America is not religious talk. I want a president to talk about ethics, not love; I want the State to be completely separate from religion so that our country can be equally represented in Congress no matter their religion or their rejection of religion. A president should be persuaded, or not, by reason and in full consideration of the greater good, no matter what his or her religious dogma says.

  35. My favorite book from the 90's, A Return to Love – amazing. I'm so glad that your voice is there Marianne. You make people think, like great engaging art – thank you…

  36. Wow!!! What a great surprised, she's running for Presidence 🙂 I've listened to Marianne Williamson for spirituality stuff and she's more than amazing in that field. America is learning a lesson with Trump right now, an opportunity to redefine what is it that Americans want for their nation. In my eyes, she's clearly the best candidate for the US! I trust she'll win.

  37. I keep telling people she is not crazy she is the sanest person in that debate. Thank you, Trevor, for showing them what I already know she's isn't crazy she is in fact very intelligent, thoughtful, a thought-provoking candidate who should be listened to and taken seriously

  38. I have loved Marianne's message since I saw her interview on Oprah years ago… Her message resonates with my soul and I trust her vision is pure and intentional for the whole. Applying the spiritual to the material is the way 💯👁️🙏💪🙌

  39. They always label you crazy when they want to discredit what you say. She is talking right and that is a direct threat to their money. #FollowTheMoney

  40. Thank you so much for this conversation. I’ve been saying these things for so long. Sick care not healthcare is our reality!! Best of luck ❤️❤️

  41. I’ve been a fan of her work for many years… I’m glad it opens up a new view on the world and politics, which we as a human race need to explore and implement.

  42. Campaign finance reform is the only way to make lasting change. It should be restricted to 6 months as well.
