Cockburn is tender toward presidential hopeful Marianne Williamson. He worries about how she is feeling in the heat of a competitive primary season. After lamenting the ‘dark psychic force’ of hatred in Trump’s America at the July Democratic presidential debate, the candidate and spiritual leader has now expressed concerns about the ‘godless’ left.

On a hot-mic on former-Fox News anchor Eric Bolling’s show, America This Week, the candidate was caught in a moment of vulnerability:

‘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.’

Spurned by the liberal establishment for her transcendent views and excluded from last night’s presidential debate in Houston, Williamson isn’t feeling love from her own side. Cockburn understands.

‘I understand why people on the right call them godless… I didn’t think the left was as mean as the right — they are.’

In the world of politics, not even an outsider candidate like Williamson is spared the callousness of the left. As she watched the Democratic presidential debate from home, Cockburn poured out some spiritual gemstones in her honor.

Last night, a specific Williamson quote was on Cockburn’s mind: ‘We are not held back by the love we didn’t receive in the past, but by the love we’re not extending in the present.’

Cockburn thinks the DNC should show some love in the future by extending an invite to Williamson for next month’s presidential debate.
