During my interview yesterday on The View, Meghan McCain dismissed me and compared me to Donald Trump. Today on the show she said that I should drop out of the race.
The energy of “Who let YOU in?!” could not be more clear. And I believe that that energy should be challenged.
I know who let me in: YOU did. And I intend to stay.
While it’s sad to see any woman tell another woman to “just go away,” what’s most important is that we not do that.
Today my campaign sent out the following press release, and I hope you will join us in countering Meghan’s overt efforts to invalidate our campaign.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Statement from Maurice Daniel, Marianne 2020 Campaign Manager
Friday, June 21, 2019
Marianne Williamson’s Fierce and Authentic Message is a Threat to Meghan McCain and the Republican Establishment
“For the second day running, Meghan McCain has chosen to attack and misrepresent who Marianne Williamson is and her stance on the issues.
Why? Because Williamson’s values-based, morally driven message—combined with the Democratic Party’s desire for all to be part of the American dream—is powerful and is resonating with voters.
Meghan McCain owes Marianne Williamson an apology. For addressing Williamson rudely, dismissively and with total disrespect, and for comparing her to Donald Trump which couldn’t be further from the truth.
Meghan McCain should have done her homework:
- Williamson was the first candidate in the 2020 cycle to introduce reparations into the conversation.
- Williamson has written four #1 best sellers and sold millions of books. Marianne’s millions of supporters are not being polled. They are not regular Democratic voters who vote in every primary. Her support is being significantly underreported because several polls have not included her, and her supporters are not on the lists of likely voters who pollsters call.
- Williamson has transformed people’s lives for the better part for 35 years.
- Williamson founded Project Angel Food, an organization that’s fed 11 million meals to ill and dying people over the last 30 years.
We suggest that Meghan McCain read Williamson’s book, A Politics of Love, which we sent her before the show. A Politics of Love confronts the cancerous politics of fear and divisiveness threatening the United States today, urging all spiritually aware Americans to return to—and act out of—our deepest value: love. We encourage her to also read the first #1 bestseller A Return to Love.
Meghan McCain’s words and deeds are what is wrong with American politics. The entitled and those entrenched in the establishment do not want to hear a different message. American voters do."
Thank you for standing with me, as all of us together now say, “Thanks, Meghan. But we think we’ll stay in.”
All my best,
