Candace Owens Uses MSNBC Interview To Claim She Owned The Libs: They’re ‘Having An Absolute Meltdown’

Over the past few months, TPUSA Director of Urban Engagement and toast of Team Trump Candace Owens has become a fast-rising conservative celebrity after Kanye West tweeted out that he “loved the way” she thinks. Since then, Owens and TPUSA founder Charlie Kirk have done everything they could to cash in on the newfound mainstream attention, with Owens appearing on Fox News frequently.

On Thursday, the mainstreaming of “Red Pill Black” continued in earnest as she appeared on MSNBC for a wide-ranging and lengthy on-air interview. And, in typical MAGA fashion, she used the interview to do some online trolling of the libs.

Following the segment in which she told host Craig Melvin that blacks will “entirely” turn their backs on the left by 2020, claimed she didn’t vote in the 2016 presidential election because she was sick in bed, and claimed that the right never fearmongers as much as the left, Owens took to Twitter to boast about her appearance.

First, she wanted to who watched while saying how much she enjoyed her “back/forth” with Melvin:

Then, after retweeting folks who told her how awesome she was, she declared that she was trending on Twitter because liberals were having an “absolute meltdown.”

Good job, MSNBC. You just brought on someone whose whole persona is built on pandering to a fringe-right crowd by engaging in trollish behavior and tossing out outlandish bullshit. And she rewarded you all by utilizing the interview to own the libs.

Meanwhile, if you were going to bring her on, you’d think you’d at least ask her about her recent comments about the #MeToo Movement that led to widespread condemnation from across the political spectrum.

I’ll let Media Matters’ John Whitehouse take it from here:
