Despite insults flying between the top 10 Democratic candidates when they came head-to-head for the first time in Texas on Thursday, the fallout wasn’t enough to stem the disappointment of thousands online who came together to collectively mourn the absence of one 2020 candidate fan-favorite: Marianne Williamson.

The spiritual author-turned-presidential hopeful’s name trended on Twitter throughout much of the debate, which was branded ‘boring’ by many as a result of Williamson’s disqualification from proceedings.

Even Williamson herself called the Democratic confab ‘ultimately boring’, filled with ‘nice people’ and ‘nothing transformative’, which was, in her opinion, ‘nothing even close to what we’ll need to have if we want to defeat the president.’

Numerous people online agreed – however sincerely – asking, ‘No Marianne Williamson? Well, then what’s the point of all this’.

Williamson was one of 10 candidates who failed to receive at least two percent of support in four polls approved by the Democratic National Committee and failed to amass 130,000 unique donors, meaning she unable to appear at the event in Huston. 

But during her appearance in the first round of debates in July, Williamson became the most googled candidate of the night after her referral to the Trump administration as a ‘dark psychic force’ broke the internet.

Williamson, who was relatively unknown before the debate, caught viewers by surprise again when she said she would ‘harness the power of love’ to beat Donald Trump in 2020.

Ever since, the 67-year-old’s off-beat commentary and bohemian declarations have helped her amass a cult following online, with many of her speeches and TV appearances becoming instantly immortalized in memes.

Despite her absence on Thursday night, Williamson continued to dominate Twitter’s trending section with many across the country demanding her instant return to the debate stage.

‘I don’t want Marianne Williamson to be president,’ admitted Kaye Foley. ‘But I do think she should be legally required to be in every debate.’

Foley wasn’t alone, with Joshua Garcia adding: ‘Missing Marianne Williamson at tonight’s debate and at every conversation I ever have ever.’

Others suggested swapping out Williamson for some of the more ‘forgetful’ candidates stood on the stage, with Amy Klobuchar most often named as her mostly fitting substitute.

‘I would trade Klobuchar’s spot on this stage for Marianne Williamson,’ Kendrick Sampson said. ‘She’s the only one who’s actually made strong points about reparations. And… she’s entertaining. Just saying.’

Some tweeters jokingly theorized that maybe Williamson was actually among the panel, conjuring ‘dark forces’ of her own to corrupt her Democratic rivals and assume the form of Andrew Yang and Kamala Harris.

‘Marianne Williamson made it to the debate after all. She’s taken possession of Kamala Harris. I knew she was a witch,’ Dan Zinski said.

Another tweeter suggested Williamson manages to infiltrate the stage by ‘soul-changing’ into Andrew Yang.

In reality, Williamson was in Beverley Hills hosting her own ‘live post-debate’ to talk voters through what she would’ve said and what she would’ve asked of her peers during a live-stream.

‘When I listened tonight, I felt like it was like eating leftovers. It was not as excited as it needed to be,’ she told the crowd gathered at the California event, criticizing the ‘political media industrial complex.’ 

‘When people say that I, when up on that debate stage was out of my depth, ladies and gentleman, there is no depth there.’ 

She also told her supporters to keep the faith in the founding ideals of the United States and democracy.

‘We forgot that democracy is supposed to be in the hands of the people. But it’s not in your hands if it’s not in your heart. It’s not in your hands if it’s not in your mind.’

Williamson was the only Democratic hopeful to offer commentary on debate night. Many of the other nine prominent candidates who failed to qualify campaigned and hosted public events instead.
