Marianne Williamson Will Share CNN Debate Stage With Elizabeth Warren

Posted on | July 19, 2019 | 1 Comment


The lineup for the second round of Democrat presidential debates — July 30-31 in Detroit, televised by CNN — will feature Marianne Williamson on the first night, along with Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg. Meanwhile the second night will feature a rematch between former Vice President Joe Biden and California Sen. Kamala Harris.

Second-quarter fundraising showed five candidates — Buttigieg, Biden, Warren, Sanders and Harris — raise three-quarters of the money raised by the entire Democratic field. Buttigieg’s surge in the second quarter, raising nearly $25 million, was remarkable, as was the complete meltdown of former Texas Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke’s campaign. After raising $9.4 million in the first quarter of 2019, O’Rourke’s total slumped to $3.6 million in the second quarter, when he spent more ($5.3 million) than he raised. O’Rourke’s second-quarter “burn rate” of 146% was exceeded only by New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who spent nearly twice as much (184%) as she raised in the second quarter. Having a high “burn rate” — spending more than the candidate raises — is usually a sign that a campaign has more paid staff than it can afford, which could eventually bankrupt a campaign.

Williamson’s second-quarter fundraising haul of $1.5 million came mostly (71%) from small donors, exceeding Sanders (70%) and Warren (67%) in the percentage of donors giving under $200. However, earlier this month, Williamson said she still needs 49,000 new unique donors to reach the 130,000 unique-donor threshold the DNC has announced for the third round of debates in September. Perhaps getting a celebrity endorsement from Alyssa Milano will help, and the candidate also made an appearance this week on Anderson Cooper’s CNN show.


Presidential candidate Marianne Williamson (D) ripped President Donald Trump on Wednesday evening for his “dangerous” rally that was out of the “fascist playbook,” warning Americans to think about how Hitler came to power in Nazi Germany.
“The president’s talk tonight was more than discouraging. The president’s talk tonight was dangerous. And it’s very important for Americans to see that talk and for all patriotic Americans, whether on the left or right, to be very clear that we don’t do that in America,” Williamson told CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “Our political opponents are not our enemies. You didn’t hear talk like that from Ronald Reagan or from George W. Bush or from George Bush Sr. when talking about Democrats. That’s not what we do here.”
Williamson, the spiritual adviser and author who has advised Oprah Winfrey, even suggested a link between Trump and the rise of Hitler in Nazi Germany when speaking about the “send her back” chants directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).
“And this is so far away from the traditions of democracy that when your former guests were trying to talk about has anything like this ever happened in America, the question is not has anything like this ever happened in America. We need to think about how it happened in Germany,” she continued. “We need to be very, very serious and take this very seriously because the president has said this is how he’s going to run this campaign. The way he was talking about four elected officials, these women are U.S. Congresspeople. We don’t do this in America.”

Remember: This is about Democrat primary voters. You may not believe Trump is a potential Hitler, but Democrat primary voters do.
