Author and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson slammed President Donald Trump for purportedly pardoning the late murderous cult leader Charles Manson on Monday, after falling for a fake news story.
“There is something deeply sinister about Trump pardoning Charles Manson, even posthumously. Dog whistles of the very worst possible kind,” posted Williamson, before deleting the denouncement.
“I erroneously tweeted that President Trump had posthumously pardoned Charles Manson. Glad to have been wrong,” Williamson followed up in another post, before deleting that too.
Right wingers are predictably teeing off.
This never happened. Williamson just tweeted this.
This is a woman who gets furious when she’s told that she’s unserious and not prepared to run. pic.twitter.com/3uC8Nqfidj
