Following the second Democratic primary debate for the 2020 Presidential nomination, many viewers were discussing the impressive performance of Kamala Harris and the disappointing performance of Joe Biden.
Others, however, were asking:
WHO THE F-CK IS MARIANNE WILLIAMSON AND WHAT THE HECK WAS SHE TALKING ABOUT ALL NIGHT?
An author who somehow garnered enough support and raised enough money to be included on this debate stage, Williamson didn't offer up any policy ideas... or really anything very coherent at all.
She said her first act as President would be to call the leader of New Zealand and taunt her about the U.S. being an awesome country -- and that the only plan one needs to defeat Donald Trump is... love.
Really. She said these things.
And what did folks say online in response? Scroll down to find out!

Marianne Williamson made quite an impression on the Democratic primary debate stage. If her goal was to become an Internet source of consternation and mockery... she achieved it!

Just Don't Drink Her Actual Kool-Aid
There is a 0% chance of me voting for Marianne Williamson but there is a 38% chance of me joining a cult led by Marianne Williamson (as a bit, at first, but then very much not as a bit).
This Really is What She Said
Paraphrased, that is.
Come again? (Or, actually, please do not.)
