Spiritual author Marianne Williamson became an overnight sensation when she spoke about the “Dark Psychic Force” coming from the White House. The comment broke the internet and gained traction of social media, making it certain that she will stick around in the presidential race.

Answering questions about how she would fix the water crisis of Flint, Mich., she said, “My response on the Flint water crisis is that Flint is just the tip of the iceberg.”

“This is part of the dark underbelly of American society — the racism, the bigotry. And the entire conversation that we’re having here tonight, if you think any of this wonkiness is going to deal with this dark psychic force of the collectivized hatred that this president is bringing up in this country, then I’m afraid the Democrats are going to see some very dark days,” she added.

Residents of Flint, about 60 miles from where the debate was being held, were forced to use bottled water for drinking and cooking after the city’s water source was changed for budgetary reasons in 2014. The water that came out of the faucets, after the changing of source, was foul smelling and dirty.

Williamson was the only candidate who spoke very directly on matters regarding racism. Referring to the water crisis she further said, “We need to say it like it is. It’s bigger than Flint. It’s all over this country. It’s particularly people of color. It’s particularly people who do not have the money to fight back, and if the Democrats don’t start saying it, then why would those people feel they’re there for us? And if those people don’t feel it, they won’t vote for us and Donald Trump will win.”

Her comments drew a huge cheer from the Detroit crowd, sending Twitter into a frenzy, while Google search queries on her surged.

Williamson, who served as Oprah’s spiritual guru, made a lot of sense for a pretty non-traditional candidate. Her new-age lingo and unique style with a groovy accent might propel her into the fall debate at the expense of some traditional candidates.

She also targeted her fellow candidates on issues of money in politics, and lamented that the “amoral economic system has turned short-term profits for huge multinational corporations into false gods.”

Later she took an even bigger swipe at other candidates on the topic of college affordability, saying, “I almost wonder why you’re Democrats. You seem to think there’s something wrong about using the instruments of government to help people.”

Her stirring responses earned her praise from an unlikely source -- Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter to applaud Williamson.

Williamson had captured attention in the first Democratic debate in June when she said that she would beat President Trump with love and for her proposed “girlfriend, you are so on” phone call to New Zealand.
