MSNBC’s Chris Hayes went off on a colorful rant against the president, calling Donald Trump out for his “dark sorcery of racial hatred” and the “well of evil” he promotes with his supposed white nationalist-styled way of talking.

And then the cameras panned to Marianne Williamson as she stirred a large black cauldron of smokey concoction while chanting, “Begone, oh dark psychic force of collectivized hatred!”

Not really.

But really now, Democrats — enough of the hoodoo, voodoo hokey-pokey references about Trump, already. We get it; you hate Trump. Now put down the runes and step away from the tarot cards.

And quit this: “Even if not one drop of blood were ever shed in pursuit of it, it would still be anathema,” Hayes said, yes, on live TV. “It will still be a force to be conquered and banished. What is the ‘it’ I’m speaking of?”

Do tell. ‘Cause confusion runs rampant.

OK, here it is: That was Hayes, remarking on Trump’s rhetoric.

“Well,” he went on, “to quote a phrase, ‘You know it and I know it.’”

And what’s more, he knows you know that he knows it.

“It’s the well of evil from which our president draws and has drawn from the first day when he said Mexico was sending rapists to the U.S., presumably with the explicit intent to defile America’s women, the dark sorcery of racial hatred that conjures invasions and infestations out of desperate fellow human beings seeking refuge,” Hayes said, Mediaite reported.

It’s enough to make Geoffrey Chaucer cheer from the grave. Or, at the least, Williamson furiously scribble notes for her next Democrat debate.

Why must Democrats be so nutty?

Williamson is not a dingbat interloper,” one USA Today writer just wrote. “Williamson isn’t just some kook who levitated into the presidential debates through the sheer force of love.”

Answer: They’re encouraged by nuts in the media to be nutty.

“An exultant hatred,” Hayes went on, of Trump’s rhetoric. “A hatred wrapped in a joking, not-joking smile and a cowardly irony, in a pause at the podium that let the crowd hurt its bile. Hatred echoed in the refrain of death squads and war criminals and fascist mobs throughout history as they wield the club and the pistol and the machete: ‘You’re invaders. You are animals. You are a disease. You are a threat to us you will not replace us.’ “

Green eggs and ham! Green eggs and ham! — the crowd screamed.

Oh wait, wrong poet.

But that’s the problem with trying to follow Democrats — there’s just no following their logic. They make no sense. And yet: To forgive is divine.

After all, their Ouija board probably just needs a tune-up.
