Self-help author and Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson has apparently gotten a healthy dose of reality about what the modern day Left looks like, and as the rest of us all know, it’s not pretty.

“I know this sounds naive. I didn’t think the Left was so mean,” she said when asked about how her experience for running for president has been. “I didn’t think the Left lied like this. I thought the Right did that. I thought we were better.”

Remnick asked her to speak further about what she considered to be unfair treatment.

"Oh, come on, you just mentioned crystal gazing," she answered. "There is no crystal in my home, David. There's never been a crystal on stage when I've talked.
