2020 hopeful Marianne Williamson spoke for just under nine minutes during last night’s Democratic presidential debate in Detroit–roughly half the airtime enjoyed by Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders–but she made the most of those nine minutes.

By the end of the nearly three-hour debate, Williamson was the most-searched candidate of the evening, according to Google Trends, and managed to get in several memorable one-liners, including one about the failure of “this wonkiness” to combat “this dark psychic force of the collectivized hatred that this president is bringing up in this country.”

She also made some very thoughtful and well-articulated points about things like universal healthcare, getting dirty money out of politics, reparations, the historical roots of racism, and calling white supremacy what it is: domestic terrorism.
