2020 Dem Exposed As Anti-Vaccination Advocate

Democratic White House hopeful and spiritual self-help guru Marianne Williamson gave credence to anti-vaccination theories in a 2012 radio show episode, telling her audience to “do your due diligence” before vaccinating their children.

 In a January 2012 episode of her radio show, “Living Miraculously,” Williamson said she agonized as a mother over childhood vaccinations and told her listeners to “be awake” concerning the potential dangers of vaccines. In her conversation with author Gwen Olsen, a former pharmaceutical representative, Williamson claimed to have a friend whose child was diagnosed with autism after being vaccinated.

“As with any radio show host, Williamson spoke with a variety of guests from all walks of life and some were provocative,” a spokesman for the Williamson campaign told CNN. “This guest had a specific point of view on the issue, but it’s clear from Williamson’s comments that she was neutral. For example, when someone like Kellyanne Conway is interviewed on CNN, we don’t assume the host agrees with everything she says.”

Williamson, who has made peace and love the cornerstone of her 2020 run, came under fire in June after she called vaccination mandates “Orwellian” and “draconian.”
