Sure, a lot of critics might think that 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson can be a little cooky at times for whatever reason. But, judging by a recent podcast interview she did, Williamson has now experienced what a lot of those on the right already know — leftist politicians and critics aren’t always the nicest people despite their self-righteous claims.
Williamson joined New Yorker editor David Remnick on the “Politics and More” podcast to talk about her candidacy as well as some misconceptions about her. However, what might be garnering the most attention is the comments Williamson made about “the left.”
“I know this sounds naive,” Williamson told Remnick. “I didn’t think the left was so mean. I didn’t think the left lied like this. I thought the right did that. I thought we were better.”
Critics of Williamson’s will most likely respond by saying that ‘it’s all part of the game. You know what you signed up for.’ Maybe Williamson is realizing that “the game” is intentionally mean-spirited, and that people in Washington D.C., particularly those in the political field, couldn’t care less whether they’re justified in their criticisms. As long as they can make you look bad, while not making themselves look bad, then they’ll typically engage in whatever tactics they need to in order to bring you down.
Justifiable criticism is absolutely fine, but doing things with integrity doesn’t matter in D.C. Welcome to “The Swamp.”
