Presidential candidate Marianne Williamson warned fellow Democrats during Tuesday’s debate in Detroit about the “dark psychic power” of the Trump government.
The self-help author warned the other candidates that “wonkiness” would not stop the “collectivized hatred” of the president and lead to “very dark days” for Democrats. The line and others of her drew fierce applause from the debate audience.
“It’s bigger than [the] Flint [water crisis],” Williamson continued. “It’s mostly people of color. It’s mainly people who don’t have the money to fight back, and if the Democrats don’t start saying it, why would those people feel they are there for us?”

After the debate, “dark psychic force” became popular on Google and Twitter.
Williamson, who was relatively unknown before the first debate in June, surprised viewers when she said she “would use the power of love” to defeat Donald Trump.
In her final statement last month, she said that her first calling as president would be to the Prime Minister of New Zealand to tell her, “Girlfriend, you’re so,” about which country treats children better.
