The call of the "bride" of Marianne Williamson to New Zealand and her other best moments in the debates.

Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson did not speak during the first 27 minutes of the Democratic debate on Thursday. But when she finally did, everything she said was incredible.

If she is not familiar, Williamson, who turns 67 on July 8, is an author, spiritual leader, and friend of Oprah Winfrey. (I bet this time, last year, you thought you would be talking about Oprah on the stage of the debate and not her spiritual guru, right?)

she launched her presidential campaign in January and has more or less been flying under the radar, but her personality is distinctive: she feels like a cross between her local psychic, the hippie lady who runs the city's thrift store and her Mom ( or, um, you) two glasses of Chardonnay deep. She speaks with a cadence and an accent that is hard to understand, but let's say it's the definition of, as Marianne would probably say, groovy.

Will she be president? Well, no. But Marianne is funny.

Williamson got a place on stage on the second night of the Democratic debates, something the candidates, including Montana Gov. Steve Bullock and Representative Seth Moulton, failed to achieve. And the bride (as Marianne, again, probably said) did not disappoint.

This is what she said, literally, because that is really all you need:

On how she would reduce the cost of prescription drugs:

First, the government should never have made a deal with Big Pharma that they could not negotiate. That was just part of the usual corruption for which corporations get away with ours. I mean, and while I agree, I'm with Senator Bennet and others, but I agree with almost everything here.

I tell you one thing, it's very good if we have all these plans, but if you think we beat Donald Trump just by having all these plans, you have something else to come. Because she did not win by saying she had a plan. she won by simply saying: "Make America great again".

We have to go deeper than these superficial corrections, as important as they are. Even if we are only talking about superficial solutions, ladies and gentlemen, we do not have a health care system in the United States, we have a system for the care of diseases in the United States. We just wait until someone gets sick and then we talk about who will pay for the treatment and how it will be treated.

What we have to talk about is why so many Americans suffer from unnecessary chronic diseases, many more, compared to other countries. It reincorporates not only Big Pharma, not only to health insurance companies, but it has to do with chemical policies, it has to do with environmental policies, it has to do with food, it has to do with drug policies and it has to do with environmental policies.

In family separation:

What Donald Trump has done to children, and it's not just in Colorado, [Gov. Hickenlooper], you're right, it's a kidnapping and it's extremely important for us to realize that.

If you forcibly remove a child from the arms of their parents, you are kidnapping them. If you take many children and put them in a detention center, inflicting trauma on them, that is called child abuse. This is collective child abuse. ... Both things are a crime. If your government does, that does not make it a less serious crime. These are crimes sponsored by the state.

What President Trump has done is not only to attack these children, not only to demonize these immigrants, she is also attacking a basic principle of the moral core of the United States. We open our hearts abroad.

This is extremely important. It is also important for all of us, and I have great respect for all who are in this stage, but are we going to talk about what to do with medical care? Well, where have you been guys? Because it is not just a plan, and I have not listened to anyone in this scenario who has talked about US foreign policy in Latin America and how we could have contributed in the last decades to something more useful.

On the reform of criminal justice and police brutality:

All of these issues are extremely important, but they are specific, they are symptoms, and the underlying cause has to do with deep, deep and deep realms of racial injustice, both in our criminal justice system and in our economic system. And the Democratic Party should be on the side of reparations for slavery for this very reason. I do not believe, I do not believe, that the average American is a racist, but the average American is very poorly educated about the history of the race in the United States.

In addressing climate change and age?

The fact that someone has a younger body does not It means you do not have old ideas. John Kennedy did not say: "I have a plan to take a man to the moon, and we will do it, and I think we can all work together, and maybe we can get a man on the moon." John Kennedy said: "By the end of this decade, we are going to put a man on the moon" on the day that politics included people and included imagination and included big dreams and included big plans.

I've had a career that did not make political plans, but I've had a career that takes advantage of people's inspiration, motivation, and emotion. Masses of people. When we know that when we say that we are going to move from a dirty economy to a clean economy, we are going to have a Green New Deal, we are going to create millions of jobs, we are going to do this within the next 12 years, because I am not interested in winning The next election, we are interested in our grandchildren. Then it will happen.

On what theme would you press first as president:

My first call is to the Prime Minister of New Zealand, who said her goal was to make New Zealand the place where it is the best place in the world for a child to grow up. And I will say to her: "Bride, you are very old". Because the United States of America will be the best place in the world for a child to grow up.

In the international relationship she would restore:

One of my first phone calls would be to call the European leaders and say: "We are crazy". Because I totally understand how important it is for the United States to be part of the Western alliance.

Your final statement and message to Donald Trump:

I'm sorry I did not talk more tonight about how we're going to beat Donald Trump. I have an idea about Donald Trump: Donald Trump is not going to be defeated just for talking about internal politics. she will not be beaten only by someone who has plans. she is going to be hit by someone who has an idea of ​​what man has done. This man has reached the psyche of the American people and has taken advantage of fear for political purposes.

So, Mr. President, if you are listening, I want you to listen to me please: you have taken advantage of the fear for political reasons and only love can expel you. So, sir, I have the feeling that you know what you are doing. I'm going to take advantage of love for political purposes. I'll find you in that field, and sir, love will win.
