Candace Owens: 'I Love America. Thinking about Running for President'
Activist flirts with idea of running for office
Conservative activist and commentator Candace Owens pledged her love for America and revealed she was thinking about running for president.
Owens wrote to her 2.5million Twitter followers:
“I love America. Thinking about running for President.”
I love America. Thinking about running for President. 🇺🇸— Candace Owens (@RealCandaceO) February 6, 2021
Owens was not clear on whether she was considering running in 2024 or another presidential election.
This is not the first time Owens has flirted with the idea of running for president.
Owens revealed last year she was "eyeing a seat right now."
The activist said the coronavirus pandemic exposed the Democrats, accusing them of failing to demonstrate leadership during a crisis.
"I'll tell you something else, Glenn; I'll win," she told Glenn Beck during an interview.
"They won't know what hit them ... they're being dishonest, and they lie, and I've had enough of it."
"It comes down to where are they doing the most damage, how can I affect the most change? There's no one I'm afraid of. I would run against Gov. Cuomo. I would run against AOC," Owens said.
In November, Owens responded to a social media post from boxer Devon Alexander hinting at her presidential goals.
Alexander shared a tweet from Owens claiming Joe Biden is "not the president-elect."
"What's going to happen to this one after Trump is out of office," Alexander wrote in response to Owens' tweet.
"2024 is a long way off... Maybe I’ll run as his successor," Owens responded.
The news comes after Owens accused progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of staging a photo with immigrant children while also accusing her of giving a fake account on attempt on her life.
"On a day in which #AlexandriaOcasioSmollett is trending, please never forget the time that @AOC staged a photo shoot dressed in all white at a parking lot to spread lies about immigrant children in cages.”
"Faking her own attempted murder was the next logical step."
AOC also claimed the two pipe bombs found outside the Democratic and Republican National Committee headquarters following the Capitol riots had been placed by "Trump supporters."
"There were absolutely ZERO bombs planted by 'Trump supporters," Owens wrote.
"Pipe bombs were planted outside of both Republican and Democratic Headquarters the night before Trump’s speech—and the FBI has no idea who planted them."
Fact-checking site Snopes published a report titled “Did AOC Exaggerate the Danger She Was in During Capitol Riot?”
This title was immediately followed by the heading “AOC was targeted with another round of bad-faith smears after giving an emotional, firsthand account of her experiences during the Capitol riot,” apparently indicating the tone and premise of the “fact check,” which quickly demonstrates its overt left-wing bias.
What’s False: When the attack on the Capitol began, Ocasio-Cortez was in her congressional office, which is located in a network of office buildings immediately surrounding the Capitol, and her office building was one of the two buildings that were evacuated.
The “Mostly False” conclusion claim that Ocasio-Cortez “wasn’t even in the Capitol building” — is true, as Palma admits herself in her “What’s True” section.
