Things are just different in 2020, with a global pandemic forcing our lives into some strange, distant disarray.
Few of us are eating inside of restaurants, and those who do are enjoying their meals in the peace and quiet of an establishment filled to half-capacity or less. Even fewer of us are attending sporting events or concerts, and a great many of us are out of work.
And it’s not just the average American who is affected – our political process has been heavily adjusted on account of the COVID-19 crisis. Campaign rallies are all but canceled, polling may or may not take place in person at all, and the national conventions for both the Republicans and Democrats will be taking place at least somewhat virtually.
With the DNC kicking off this week, at least one of the former candidates in the 2020 race was not impressed with the affair in the least, and issued a scathing take on the subject.

Former Democrat presidential candidate Marianne Williamson compared the Democrat National Convention (DNC) to “binge watching a Marriott commercial” and blasted its lack of policy prescriptions to issues facing the United States.
Williamson, who has criticized the Democrat political establishment’s lies and cruelty, posted commentary during the DNC, noting that none of the speakers “except for Bernie” had policy solutions to the problems they pointed out.
“Beautiful pictures of POC and reference to BLM, but no actual policy on how to end systemic racism,” Williamson said. “Touching homage to Covid victims and responders, but no actual policy on providing universal healthcare. No policy, period. Except for Bernie.”
And that’s not all…
No I’m sorry but they did not address racism. They showed a lot of beautiful pictures of POC and made references to BLM, but there was not one mention of an actual policy to help end systemic racism. It’s like binge watching a Marriott commercial.

If Williamson thinks that this is boring, just wait until she gets a load of Biden’s acceptance speech.
