Williamson was selected to appear in the second Democratic debate on Thursday. At first, a lot of people watching at home were not really sure who she was.

I am super plugged into politics and I literally don’t know who Marianne Williamson is??? Also why does she sound like an old timey actress???

It took about 30 minutes for Williamson to even get a chance to say something during the debate.

We're almost 30 minutes through the debate and has Marianne Williamson spoken once yet?

Everyone was CLAMORING for her opinion.

Marianne Williamson is charging up her aura. When the moderators finally let her speak what she says will be very powerful. Excited to see the Spanish sentence she will say.

But when she did...it was interesting.

Marianne Williamson dismissed the health care policy debate as "superficial fixes" and said Trump won without a plan just by repeating "Make America great again" so Democrats need to "go deeper." What?

Here's what she said about health care policy:

"It's really nice that we got all these plans, but if you think we're going to beat Donald Trump just by having all these plans, you got another thing coming."

People were confused.

did marianne williamson rly just make the argument that policy and plans are “superficial?”

Did Marianne Williamson just call universal healthcare a "superficial fix"?

She is original!

Marianne Williamson is the only candidate bold enough to propose a witchcraft based health care system.

Then she said that on the first day of her presidency, she would call the prime minister of New Zealand.

Marianne Williamson says her first act as president would be calling New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, who once said New Zealand is the best place to raise a child in the world. Williamson said she'd tell Ardern: "Girlfriend, you are so wrong" https://t.co/H6xF3ev1jm

It was just...wow.

Marianne Williamson’s vision of serving as President of New Zealand. #DemDebate

Why...?

"I'd like to phone a friend, Chuck." "Certainly. Who would you like to call?" "The Prime Minister of New Zealand." #DemDebate2

But they were entertained.

Only one candidate has a comprehensive plan that will destroy New Zealand. #DemDebate2

Williamson concluded the debate by urging America to "harness love."

Candidates are giving closing statements now. Marianne Williamson says she's "going to harness love for political purposes." Addressing Trump, she adds: "Sir, love will win."

Alrighty then!

Marianne Williamson in her head right now. “I’m going to harness love for political purposes”.

I will harness love for political purposes - Marianne Williamson #DemocraticDebate2020

Everyone wondered what that meant, exactly, but were...into it?

Marianne Williamson tells us she wants to harness love. Then she pours another glass of wine, and starts singing “SOME SAY LOVE...”

“I’m going to harness love for political purposes. I will you meet you on that train. And sir, love will win. “

Her interesting commentary, unique presence, and more had some people STANNING.
