Marianne Williamson WAS Still Running for President

Apparently Marianne Williamson was pursuing the Democratic Presidential nomination as recently as yesterday. But not anymore.

From CNBC:

Williamson, who consistently polled near the bottom of the pack of Democrats vying to defeat President Donald Trump, said she stayed in the race “to take advantage of every possible opportunity to share our message.”

“With caucuses and primaries now about to begin, however, we will not be able to garner enough votes in the election to elevate our conversation any more than it is now,” she said. “The primaries might be tightly contested among the top contenders, and I don’t want to get in the way of a progressive candidate winning any of them.”

“As of today, therefore, I’m suspending my campaign,” Williamson said.

Williamson wrote on Twitter shortly after her announcement that “A politics of conscience is still yet possible. And yes….love will prevail.”

Peace out!

    Williamson hung in there a long time, and for her efforts was rewarded with a substantially higher profile as an anti-vaxx celebrity/woomeister, which was surely the plan from the get-go. She'll be fleecing rubes with even greater success from now on.

    In the words of Lily Tomlin:

      "If love is the answer, could you please rephrase the question?"

    Thanks for making me learn a new word.
    I thought she looked at her book sales chart and realized she had milked this for all that she could.
