Marianne Williamson joked to DailyMail.com on Friday that she would learn how to box for the next presidential debate so that she could pave her way in if a man didn't let her talk.
& # 39; I'm going to learn how to box. I will learn how to pave my way in and if someone doesn't let me talk, I have to face him on stage, & said the self-help author chuckling.
It would be a common way for her to deal with competition, given her call for a US Department of Peace, which she claims to be & # 39; our systemically anchored perpetuation of violence & # 39; will dismantle, according to its campaign website.
Marianne Williamson is holding a heart sign to wave over the fence to migrant children being held in a factory in Homestead, Fla.
Marianne Williamson told DailyMail.com that she would learn for the next debate
The author often uses a new, loving language to talk about her hopes and dreams for the country, as she did during the Thursday night debate when she said she would use love to defeat President Donald Trump.
& # 39; This man has reached the psyche of the American people and has used fear for political purposes. So, Mr. President, if you listen, I want you to hear me, please. You've used fear for political purposes and only love can work it out, & she said.
& # 39; I am going to use love for political purposes. I'll meet you at that field. And sir, love will win, & she swore.
Williamson did not speak until 30 minutes after the first presidential primary debate, but it only took her a few moments to become the biggest internet hit of the evening.
It was her first time on a national stage and she said she hopes & I'll be able to put my arguments in a different way next time & # 39 ;.
She has met the requirements to appear on stage in the second debate in July in Detroit.
Regarding the reaction of the internet to her debate performance, she seemed to appreciate the reaction.
& # 39; Even some of the snarling comments were very funny, & # 39; she said.
She also clarified a memorable moment in the evening when she said her first act as president would be to call the Prime Minister of New Zealand to discuss how the two countries can work to be the best place in the world to raise child.
& # 39; Girlfriend, you are so through & # 39 ;, Williamson told the New Zealand Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, who said New Zealand is the best place in the world to raise a child.
& # 39; I want the United States to be just as good as any other country & # 39 ;, she explained to DailyMail.com
& # 39; We have 13 million American children to go to school every time. We have millions of American children attending schools and classrooms that do not even have enough school supplies to teach a child. And if a child cannot learn to read at the age of eight, the chance of graduating from high school drastically decreases. And the chances of imprisonment are drastically increased, & she added.
She said that children was one of the main reasons why she became president.
& # 39; One of the reasons I am running for President is that the political establishment's response to this problem is simply to normalize the despair of these children. I see it as a huge humanitarian emergency. I don't think we should save these children any differently than when we save them from a natural disaster. The Prime Minister of New Zealand is an example to me of a world leader who puts the welfare of the children of her country in the right place, & said Williamson.
She also clarified that she and Ardern never spoke or met, she simply admires Ardern's work.
Williamson said she made some comments about her debate performance & # 39; very funny & # 39; found
Williamson spoke with DailyMail.com and other reporters at the Homestead Shelter for Unaccompanied Children, where 2,700 migrant children are being held without their parents.
She said her father and brother are immigration lawyers and that all four of her grandparents have emigrated from Russia to the United States, so she has great sympathy for the children being detained.
& # 39; These children were detained in particular, & # 39; she argued, & # 39; to use the power of fear and mean political goals of the Trump government. & # 39;
She joined other Democratic presidential candidates in a visit to demonstrators outside the facility, who argue for its closure. She took selfies with her and stood on a ladder to hold a heart sign and waved to the children who were being held behind the fence.
Williamson was the most wanted candidate in Thursday night's clash of Democratic candidates, according to Google trends.
The 66-year-old from Houston, Texas, relegated to the outer left podium but was given the opportunity to speak as she debated healthcare policy.
Williamson may have spoken for just five minutes during the debate, but it was what she said that caught the imagination of those who tune in, with memes popping up at a pace and giving much new material to late-evening comedy hosts.
It took more than 30 minutes for her to speak, but it wasn't long before Marianne Williamson (photo) became the biggest internet hit of the evening
Williamson was asked how she would reduce the cost of prescription drugs, including the health policies of the other candidates as & # 39; superficial fixes & # 39; rejected and said that President Donald Trump won without a plan by only & # 39; Make America Great Again & # 39; to repeat.
She went on to say that democrats should go & # 39; deeper & # 39; and that & # 39; chemicals & # 39; are the cause of many health problems in the US.
& # 39; Has anyone tried to restore America with crystals and bee pollen? Yoga? & # 39; CBS host Stephen Colbert responded.
The late night host Trevor Noah had his own opinion about Williamson's comments.
& # 39; I just waited for her at a given moment like: & # 39; We don't need a plan, my friends. Just give me a bottle of CBD oil and our chakras will be aligned, & Noah joked.
Williamson's speech last night immediately inspired a lot of responses
Singer Katy Perry showed empathy for Williamson, writing: “Don't go lying I sound like Marianne Williamson after a few glasses of red & # 39;
