Democratic Presidential candidate Marianna Williamson left millions of users on social media scratching their heads over the weekend; falsely claiming President Trump pardoned now-deceased cult-leader Charles Manson.
“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 comment.
This never happened. Williamson just tweeted this.
