(DailyVantage.com) – The Biden White House doesn’t appear to be taking Marianne Williamson’s candidacy very seriously.
When asked whether President Biden was “frustrated” by Williamson’s decision to jump into the race during a press conference on Monday, Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre responded “I mean, if I had a -what is it called? A little globe here – a crystal ball, then I could tell you. A magic eight-ball or whatever. If I could feel her aura.” The room erupted with laughter.
Williamson who is, no doubt, very eccentric, isn’t joining in on the laughter. Rather, she appears to be taking her campaign quite seriously.
Having just officially announced her candidacy on March 4th, Williamson has her sights set on the Oval Office.
It didn’t take long, though, for the spiritual guru and best-selling author to strike back at Jean-Pierre. In a video response uploaded to Twitter on Tuesday, Wiliamson said “I was so sad to see the commentary of the president’s press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, about me, about crystal balls, which I’ve never spoken or written about…”
It looks as though the White House thinks it could just laugh off Williamson. “They might think it’s a joke, but there’s nothing amusing about people going bankrupt from medical debt or children going to bed hungry.”
So far, Williamson is the only Democratic presidential candidate in the race. Biden still is yet to announce whether or not he will seek a second term.
Though some Democratic voters are uneasy about the 80 year old President running for reelection, Biden looks to be beating Williamson handily in a head-to-head matchup. According to the latest Morning Consult poll, Biden leads Williamson 77%-4%.
Williamson, however, has a lot of time to fundraise and campaign before the first Democratic primary. In the world of politics, stranger things have happened.
