White House Press Sec. Karine Jean-Pierre, when asked if President Biden is annoyed by Marianne Williamson (D) announcing her 2024 presidential bid:

First time as tragedy, second time… doesn’t even rise to farce, so far. At least Mrs. McPherson accomplished some actual service to those in need, whereas Williamson, from what I’ve seen, is no more than a comfort to a cohort of middle-class television watchers. Since that audience is no longer what it was, she’s found this new grift (although I’m sure she’s convinced herself it’s a mission), and Our Failed Mainstream Media is all too happy to encourage her, for their lulz.

It says that conservatives want her to help them by creating a lot of chaos in Democratic primaries. That's what it says.

Politico, for example:
Self-help author Marianne Williamson, whose 2020 White House campaign featured more quirky calls for spiritual healing than actual voter support, launched another longshot bid for the presidency on Saturday, becoming the first Democrat to formally challenge President Joe Biden for the 2024 nomination.
“We are upset about this country, we’re worried about this country,” Williamson told a crowd of more than 600 at a kickoff in the nation’s capital. “It is our job to create a vision of justice and love that is so powerful that it will override the forces of hatred and injustice and fear.”
The 70-year-old onetime spiritual adviser to Oprah Winfrey should provide only token primary opposition — a testament to how strongly national Democrats are united behind Biden. Still, she tweaked the president, a longtime Amtrak rider, by holding her opening rally at the ornately marble-columned presidential suite at Union Station, Washington’s railway hub…
Williamson, whose red, blue and black campaign signs feature the dual slogans “A New Beginning” and “Disrupt the System,” says she’ll be campaigning in early-voting states on the 2024 election calendar.
That includes New Hampshire, which has threatened to defy a Biden-backed plan by the Democratic National Committee to have South Carolina lead off the nominating contests. Democrats and Republicans in New Hampshire have warned that if Biden skips the state’s unsanctioned primary and a rival wins it, that outcome could prove embarrassing for the sitting president — even if that challenger has no real shot of actually being the nominee.
Striking a defiant tone Saturday, Williamson denounced “those who feel they are the adults in the room” and aren’t taking her candidacy seriously, proclaiming, “Let me in there.”…
Go away, whiny lady. Mean center-left person that I am, I have to agree with Mr. Ragnarok Lobster here…
And do not get it fucking twisted. Whining about moving the start of the Democratic primaries from the two whitest states that are least representative of the makeup of the Democratic voter base is white grievance for so-called liberals and moderates.
