Candace Owens Reacts to RNC Snub: ‘I Would Have Crushed Obama’

*Conservatives can’t wrap their head around why political activist Candace Owens was not included in the lineup of people speaking at the Republican National Committee, which kicks off Monday 

Owens has been a staunch Trump supporter for much of his presidency, even going so far as minimizing the impact that white supremacy has had on Black culture. She also created the #Blexit movement with the goal of persuading Black Americans to turn away from the “racist” Democratic Party.

In a now-deleted tweet, Owens said she would have “crushed” former President Barack Obama at the RNC, had she been invited to speak, heavy.com reports. Obama took aim at Trump during the DNC last week.

“Donald Trump hasn’t grown into the job because he can’t. And the consequences of that failure are severe,” Obama said. “One-hundred-and-seventy-thousand Americans dead. Millions of jobs gone. Our worst impulses unleashed, our proud reputation around the world badly diminished, and our democratic institutions threatened like never before.”

Check out some Twitter reaction to Owens’ RNC diss below.

    As a STAUNCH Trumplican, I am APPALLED that Candace wasn’t invited to speak. The only thing I can think of that might’ve happened is that she must’ve been too threatening to someone in charge of producing this convention. Whoever’s idea it was to exclude her should be fired from their job and replaced by someone that knows what they’re doing. It hurts my heart but I know that she is STILL one of President Trump’s biggest supporters as she has a firm grasp on reality and truth and she knows that he’s the best POTUS this nation has EVER fielded.

*Meghan, Britain’s Duchess of Sussex, revealed in an essay published in the New York Times on Wednesday that she suffered a miscarriage in July.

The former actress and wife of Prince Harry said the moment occurred while she was caring for her son Archie.

“I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second,” Meghan wrote, describing how she felt a sharp cramp, and dropped to the floor while holding her son. 

“Hours later, I lay in a hospital bed, holding my husband’s hand. I felt the clamminess of his palm and kissed his knuckles, wet from both our tears,” she wrote. “Staring at the cold white walls, my eyes glazed over. I tried to imagine how we’d heal.”

Meghan added: “Sitting in a hospital bed, watching my husband’s heart break as he tried to hold the shattered pieces of mine, I realized that the only way to begin to heal is to first ask, “Are you OK?”

“Losing a child means carrying an almost unbearable grief, experienced by many but talked about by few,” she wrote.

“In the pain of our loss, my husband and I discovered that in a room of 100 women, 10 to 20 of them will have suffered from miscarriage. Yet despite the staggering commonality of this pain, the conversation remains taboo, riddled with (unwarranted) shame, and perpetuating a cycle of solitary mourning,” Meghan continued.

The duchess is receiving an outpouring of love on social media, with author Elizabeth Day writing on Twitter: “Chrissy Teigen and the Duchess of Sussex speaking openly about something that historically has given women so much pain, shame and trauma, is a game-changing step.

“I, and countless others, am so grateful to them. Beyond that, I simply want to tell them: I am so, so sorry.”

Prince Harry reportedly told the royal family about his wife’s miscarriage in the summer and they were “very supportive,” a royal expert says, Newsweek reports.
