Liberal Marianne Williamson: “What does it say that the conservatives are nicer to me” than liberals?
“What does it say that Fox News is nicer to me than the lefties are?”
2020 Democratic candidate Marianne Williamson recently shared a revelation with Eric Bolling of America This Week. During a hot mic moment, she vented her frustration over being treated badly by the left and marveled at the nice treatment she has received from conservatives.
Tim Haines of Real Clear Politics provides a transcript:
Marianne Williamson On Hot Mic: “What Does It Say That FOX News Is Nicer To Me Than The Lefties Are?”
Democratic candidate Marianne Williamson said on a hot mic that she was shocked to learn during her presidential campaign that the left is “as mean as the right.”
“What does it say that Fox News is nicer to me than the lefties are? What does it say that the conservatives are nicer to me?” she wondered after completing an interview on Sinclair’s “America This Week with Eric Bolling” two weeks ago.
“It’s such a bizarre world,” the spiritual guru turned presidential candidate continued. “You know, I’m such a lefty. I mean, I’m a serious lefty, but they’re so– I didn’t think the left was as mean as the right. They are.”
She returned to the show this week to explain what she meant. According to Williamson, she only agreed to appear for a second interview after host Eric Bolling promised that he would not air the comments.

Eric Bolling invited her back on the show to address the comment and she tried to walk it back a little bit.
Zachary Halaschak writes at the Washington Examiner:
Appearing on Sinclair’s America This Week, Williamson was played a clip where she had previously appeared on the same show and was caught in a hot-mic moment.
“What does it say that Fox News is nicer to me than the lefties are? What does it say that the conservatives are nicer to me? It’s such a bizarre world,” Williamson said. “You know, I’m such a lefty. I mean, I’m a serious lefty, but they’re so … I didn’t think the Left was as mean as the Right, [but] they are.”
Williamson, 67, expressed surprise that the clip was “blasted out,” but walked back the comments to some extent on the show.
“Well, what I was told was that if I came on your show, you wouldn’t blast it out, and you just blasted it out,” she began. “So, I don’t even know where to go with that.”
Williamson is learning a valuable lesson. The left is painted by many in media as the compassionate and caring side, while conservatives are called haters. In reality, things are very different.
