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.
It was not immediately clear whether the Williamson campaign made the meme or shared it from another source. The Hill has reached out to the campaign for comment.
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. She was on stage with several of the other candidates during last week’s debates
But Williamson’s post seems to embrace her online attention, also sharing memes of Williamson defeating Immigration and Customs Enforcement and President Trump in a painting, supporters cheering her on and other celebrations for the candidate.
In a post Friday, Williamson also shared that “seeing the spontaneous explosion of memes that has taken place since the debate last week has been deeply informative,” encouraging supporters to “keep talking, creating memes, posting on social, and sending as much money as you can comfortably give.”
