Marianne Williamson Jumps Back Into Primary Against Biden

Author and Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson jumped back in the DNC nominating contest for president against President Joe Biden on Wednesday after dropping out on Feb. 7, saying she believes the current president is too vulnerable to a general election challenge from former President Donald Trump to sit out the race.

Chatter in the political class heated up again on Wednesday about Biden’s ability to hold office with his mental capacity, sparking conversation about an unscheduled trip Biden took to Walter Reed Medical Center for a physical examination. Williamson added the prospect of facing Trump to the conversation and announced she was back in the race.

Williamson is worried, she said in a video posted to X, formerly Twitter, that Biden may not be able to prevail against a “juggernaut of dark, dark vision.”

“As of today, I am un-suspending my campaign for the presidency of the United States,” Williamson said. “I had suspended it because I was losing the horse race. But something so much more important than the horse race is at stake here, and we must respond.”

The author warned that Biden does not have anything to offer that will be enough to stop supposed fascism from seizing America, referring to a second Trump term: “Right now, we have a fascist standing at the door. Everybody’s all upset about it. Well, we should be upset about it. But we’re not going to defeat the fascist by — well, by what? What is President Biden offering?”

She attacked the idea that the economy is strong, an idea Biden has pushed to voters by claiming that the American economy is the strongest in the world while ignoring high inflation and unsustainable GDP growth.

“What is he saying beyond, ‘You know, the economy is really doing well’? Are you kidding me? For whom?” Williamson said.

“We’re watching a car crash in slow motion here. Everybody knows it,” Williamson said before responding to critics who call her bid delusional. “I’ll tell you what’s delusional. What’s delusional is just closing our eyes and crossing our fingers and just hoping that somehow Biden and [Vice President Kamala] Harris will be able to beat that juggernaut of dark, dark vision.”
