Too Funny - Marianne Williamson's photo edited into now-viral Vogue spread



Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson on Thursday shared a photo of herself edited into a viral Vogue magazine photo of all the Democratic women running for the White House.

“Happy July 4th! Other generations have done what they were called to do, and now it’s our generation’s time to do what we are called to do,” Williamson posted on Instagram. The photo shows Williamson added to a painting in the background of the picture.

“The American revolution is an ongoing process, a continuous journey Into more and more expanded realms of possibility for everyone. It’s amazing when you dust off certain phases and reclaim them for their modern relevance. 'Let freedom ring' is not just a cliche after all... #bigtruth,” the candidate continued.

A Williamson campaign spokesperson said in a statement to The Hill, "The campaign did not create the meme. All credit goes to the people of the internet who never fail to deliver."

Williamson was not included in the Vogue photo of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif), Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.). She criticized the decision to exclude her, saying on CNN the Framers of the Constitution did not make Vogue magazine the “gatekeeper” for the race.

Amy Chozick, the author of the piece in Vogue, in an interview explained that the magazine's editors decided to focus on women who were already serving in elected office. Williamson was the only woman running for president who was not included in the picture.

1. Good For Her

 

It was a shoddy move by AW...and not such a great photo to begin with. It looks like it was shot through a mattress and all their eyes except Kamala are closed. Is it symbolic that Marianne's eyes are wide open?...

4. 6 women in the race is historic and leaving Williamson out is pretty shoddy.

5. So much for inclusion though. I'm glad she injected some humor into this season.

6. LOL...had to look up what rip shit means. Thanks, learned something new.

 

But I don't understand the connection with Klobuchar.

8. Good eye! I didn't even notice that.

 

Now that I think of it, I have to focus to see the other candidates. Just Marianne, Marianne, Marianne who will not be ignored.

Thanks, LAS14!
