Author Marianne Williamson went viral on Twitter on Tuesday, July 30 after referencing Seinfeld during the Democratic presidential debate.

Williamson was answering a question about the National Rifle Association (NRA).

“The issue of gun safety, of course, is that the NRA has us in a chokehold, but so do the pharmaceutical companies, so do the health insurance companies, so do the fossil fuel companies, and so do the defense contractors,” she said.

“And none of this will change until we either pass a constitutional amendment or pass legislation that establishes public funding for federal campaigns.”

“But for politicians, including my fellow candidates, who themselves have taken tens of thousands—and in some cases hundreds of thousands of dollars—from these same corporate donors to think that we now have the moral authority to say we’re going to take them on, I don’t think the Democratic party should be surprised that so many Americans believe: ‘Yadda, yadda, yadda,'” she added.

The clip went viral on Twitter among people watching the debate.

“Everyone just went on about gun control for 15 minutes and the only thing people are tweeting is YADDA YADDA YADDA,” wrote commentator Stephen Miller.

“Marianne’s ‘yada yada yada’ campaign speech is everything,” added activist Nomiki Konst.

“And @marwilliamson for the win with a Seinfeld reference. Yada Yada Yada,” added CNN’s S.E. Cupp.

“Marianne Williamson is the only candidate brave enough to just cut the middle of her speech and yell ‘YADDA, YADDA, YADDA’ at the top of her lungs and for that I respect her,” added author Sady Doyle.

Williamson was one of 10 candidates appearing on Tuesday; another 10 are slated for another debate on Wednesday night.
