Marianne Williamson candidate photo. People may not be taking her seriously, but Marianne Williamson is not here to be dismissed. The candidate was not happy to find out that Vogue magazine has published a photo of the female candidates for the coming elections—excluding her.
Marianne Williamson was hitherto unknown the American political scene. But, her performance at the Democratic Debate has, at a minimum, intrigued the public and allowed her to capture the limelight. But vogue Magazine does not seem to have gotten the memo.
The magazine recently invited most of the women candidates for President, but did not invite Marianne.
In the photo can be seen, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Kamala Harris (D-CA), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI). Marianne Williamson is absent… and not happy about. She took to CNN to express her frustrations.
Vogue Magazine tried to explain why Marianne Williamson as a female candidate was not also in the photo, saying that they invited people with political experience. This answer obviously would not satisfy Marianne Williamson. “It’s very insidious and subtle. It’s a suggestion that only those who have elected office in their past are qualified,” she says.
Not to be dismissed, of course, Marianne Williamson made herself a photo of her own. She photoshopped herself in the picture–her ‘presidential portrait’ behind the women pretty much saying that she is the real winner in this.
People on twitter find the gesture quite amusing. ” .
@voguemagazine excludes @marwilliamson. @Frances_Fisher posts the Vogue photo with Williamson on the outside looking in. Williamson responds by putting herself in the photo on the wall, suggesting she’s the real winner and the others are pretenders. Well done — epic,” writes Tyler O’Neil.
On Instagram as well, Marianne Williamson earlier posted; “The framers of the Constitution did not make Vogue magazine the gate keepers of America’s political process, here to determine who and who is not to be considered a serious political candidate.”
As for us, we call this a win for the candidate.
