The author, New Age spiritual-thought leader, Oprah Winfrey confidante, and now presidential contender Marianne Williamson became an internet meme and the subject of endless jokes overnight after her eyebrow-raising performance at the first Democratic debates on Thursday in Miami.

At multiple points during the debate, Williamson rejected the notion that providing detailed policy plans on issues like climate change and immigration would help Democrats defeat President Donald Trump and said the first thing she would do as president would to be call New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

She used her closing statement to talk about defeating Trump. “He’s not going to be beaten by someone with plans,” she said before addressing Trump directly and adding, “you’ve harnessed fear for political purposes and only love can cast that out … I’m going to harness love for political purposes.”

Williamson has been one of the most prominent spiritual gurus in Hollywood for decades, getting her big break with a 1992 interview with Winfrey. While she has never held elected office – she unsuccessfully ran for Congress in 2014 – she qualified for the first round of presidential debates by reaching 1% in three polls and gaining 65,000 unique donors.
