Marianne Williamson Responds To Claims She Flies Into Fits Of ‘Foaming, Spitting, Uncontrollable Rage’

 Democrat presidential candidate Marianne Williamson responded to allegations made this week by former staffers that she flew into fits of rage during her unsuccessful bid for president in 2020.

Twelve of her former staffers reportedly told POLITICO that Williamson — who was a self-help author and spiritual adviser before she threw her hat in the ring as a presidential candidate — was a very different person behind closed doors than she claimed to be.

“It would be foaming, spitting, uncontrollable rage,” one former staffer told POLITICO, on condition of anonymity. “It was traumatic. And the experience, in the end, was terrifying.”

Multiple staffers told the outlet that the candidate’s outbursts were loud enough on several occasions to prompt welfare checks from hotel security, and at least three cited incidents in which Williamson allegedly threw her phone at staffers who had set her off. All of the staffers who were interviewed recalled seeing her yell at people until they cried.

Williamson was given the opportunity to respond to the allegations during a Fox News interview on Thursday with host Neil Cavuto.

“This is what they do. This is what they do. These are the hits that they make,” Williamson said. “Hit pieces come. Mockery from the press secretary to the president comes, the women on ‘The View.’ These are the dirty tricks that mean you are rattling someone. Somebody’s not happy that you’re there. Somebody feels threatened by the conversation that you’re bringing up. So, this is what happens in politics. And I’m not surprised it’s happening to me.”

Cavuto then brought up quotes in the POLITICO piece from former Rep. Paul Hodes (D-NH), Williamson’s 2020 New Hampshire state director, who said in the report: “Those reports of Ms. Williamson’s behavior are consistent with my observations, consistent with contemporaneous discussions I had about her conduct with staff members, and entirely consistent with my own personal experience with her behavior on multiple occasions.”

“I could talk about Paul Hodes’ behavior, but I’m not going to go there,” Williamson told Cavuto. “If anybody has ever felt that I was not respectful to them who worked for me, then I am sorry. But I also know that this is a hit piece. I think any time that somebody criticizes, you always have to ask yourself, is any of it true? Is 10% of it true? If 10% of it is true, then I want to correct that within myself and within my behavior.”

“But that’s not what’s going on here. Do I have some things to learn from any experience, including that one? Absolutely,” she added. “But I also think that people can see through the obvious game that’s being played here by establishment forces who don’t want me in the game.”
