In one simple, direct tweet, the outspoken, conservative firebrand, Candace Owens announced that she’s “Thinking about running for President.”
I love America. Thinking about running for President. 🇺🇸

The response to her tweet was mostly positive with many saying they would support her only if Trump doesn’t run again in 2024. Others tweeted that a Trump/Owens ticket would be incredible. Of course, the Left immediately jumped on her for daring to step out of line and even consider a run for President, because, in their world, a black person is only allowed to be a Democrat—which reminds us of course, why we love Candace…she’s a free thinker and won’t allow anyone to keep her on the Democrat plantation.
Only yesterday, one of The View hags, Ana Navarro, blasted Democrat Van Jones for daring to take a photo with Candace Owens, and to make matters worse—he was actually smiling in the photo! The Left is truly unhinged.
Watch, as Van Jones laughs at the small-minded co-host of The View:
OMG I cannot stop laughing. @ananavarro just questioned Van Jones for taking “a smiling picture with Candace Owens”.
The radical Left wants to unite America by making it a criminal act to smile in pictures with conservatives.
Utterly psychopathic. https://t.co/QRzuoL5DfI

It would be entertaining to watch Owens destroy her opponents with her sharp wit and incredible debate skills. One of our favorite exchanges between a sniveling liberal and Candace Owens took place in April 2019, during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on hate crimes.
When it was the dirty little Democrat Rep. Ted Lieu’s turn to talk, instead of discussing the topic of hate crimes, he used the opportunity to share an audio clip of Candace Owens speaking about nationalism and attempted to smear her with it, by falsely accusing Owens of expressing her support for Adolph Hitler.
Watch, as the smug little Democrat lawmaker holds up his phone and knowingly plays an edited clip of Owens, in hopes of smearing her character, while Owens’ elderly grandfather sits behind her. Owens told the committee and guests in the chamber, “I don’t know Ms. Owens. I’m not going to characterize her. I’m going to let her own words do the talking. So, I’m going to play for you the first 30 seconds of a statement she made about Adolf Hitler.”

Instead of giving Owens a chance to respond, the arrogant Lieu moved directly to Eileen Hershenov, Senior Vice President Policy, Anti-Defamation League to ask her opinion on Owens’ support of Adolph Hitler, never once giving Candace Owens the opportunity to defend his vile mischaracterization of her to the committee and to the public watching the hearing.
When it was time for Rep. Reschenthaler, the next Republican member of the committee to speak, he explained that he wanted to give Owens the opportunity to respond to Rep. Lieu’s vile accusation. Candace Owens began, “I think it’s pretty apparent that Mr. Lieu believes that black people are stupid and will not pursue the full clip in its entirety. He purposely presented an extracted clip…”
Democrat House Judiciary Committee Chair, Jerry Nadler loudly banged his gavel and admonished Candace Owens, saying, “The witness will suspend for a moment. It is not proper to refer disparagingly to a member of the committee. Uh, the witness will not do that again.”
Of course, Owens never called Lieu “stupid,” she only suggested that Mr. Lieu believes that black people are stupid, and therefore unable to defend themselves from his sort of trickery and deceit used to assassinate her character. After Chairman Nadler finished admonishing her, he told Owens to go ahead with her response. Owens responded, “Sure, even though I was called ‘despicable.'” Nadler responded, “the witness may not respond to a member of the committee as stupid.” “I didn’t refer to him as stupid. That’s not what I said. That’s not what I said at all. You didn’t listen to what I said. May I continue?” Nadler was clearly shaken by Owens, who refused to be bullied by the leftist lawmakers, conceded, telling her to go ahead.
“As I said, he is assuming that black people will not go pursue the full two-hour clip. He’s trying to present as if I’m launching a defense of Hitler in Germany, when in fact, the question that was asked of me was pertaining to whether or not I believed in nationalism and if nationalism was bad? What I responded was that I do not believe that we should not be characterizing Hitler as a nationalist, he was a homicidal, psychopathic, maniac, that killed his own people. A nationalist would not kill their own people. That is exactly what I was referring to in the clip and he purposely wanted to give you a cut-up, similar to what they do to Donald Trump to create a different narrative. That was unbelievably dishonest, and he did not allow me to respond to it, which is worrisome and should tell you a lot about where people are today in terms of trying to drum up narratives.” A fiery Owens replied.
Watch the epic takedown of Rep. Ted Lieu here:

Owens closed by admonishing the dirty Democrat by reminding him that she sat for 18 hours on a plane to travel to Israel to attend the US Embassy opening. Owens gave the smug lawmaker one last shot before ending her savage response to the dishonest Dem, “I’m deeply offended by the insinuation of revealing that clip without the question that was asked of me.”
Anyone who doesn’t think Candace Owens is capable of becoming an effective leader hasn’t been paying attention.
