Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel took aim at Democrats Wednesday using White House hopeful Marianne Williamson’s “yada yada yada” moment from Tuesday night’s primary debate.

“After just one hour, Dems want to: Decriminalize illegal immigration, Eliminate all private plans, Raise taxes on the middle class. ‘Yada yada yada’ is right!” McDaniel tweeted. 

{mosads}Williamson’s “Seinfeld” reference came as the self-help author faced off against nine other 2020 Democrats in Detroit, where she had some of the biggest moments, including her taking aim at fellow White House hopefuls for accepting corporate donations.

“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 they 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 ‘yada, yada, yada,’” she said, prompting applause from the audience. 

The “yada yada yada” moment has since gained traction on social media, with users applauding Williamson for her comment.
