Candace Owens is, indeed, thinking about running for president of the United States and people have had a lot to say about her announcement.
Here's the full story...
It seems that everyone and anyone can follow their dreams of running for president of the United States...
And the notorious Candace Owens has just been added to the list of ambitious wannabe presidents.
Can you imagine our country being run by a person like Owens?
Nope, neither can we!
Because Candace Owens is one hell of a controversial figure.
Hailing from Connecticut, Owens is a conservative author, political commentator, and activist who is absolutely no stranger to ruffling some feathers.
The thirty-one-year-old first emerged in the public eye in 2017, when she started producing pro-Trump commentaries...
And heavily criticized liberal rhetorics regarding structural racism, systemic inequality, and identity politics - liberal rhetorics she herself had actually been publishing only a few months earlier.
Her strong conservative views were eventually seen and agreed with by high-profile figures such as Kanye West, who in the past spoke highly of Donald Trump when he was president.
And Trump himself even tweeted about Owens in 2018, saying:
"Candace Owens is having a big impact on politics in our country. She represents an ever-expanding group of very smart 'thinkers,' and it is wonderful to watch and hear the dialogue going on... so good for our Country!"
Between 2017 and 2019, Owens worked as the communications director for the conservative advocacy group "Turning Point USA"...
And she launched The Candace Owens Show on the YouTube channel, PragerU, which quickly became renowned for its controversial topics and heated debates.
Owens is a woman who isn't afraid of letting people know her brutally honest opinions...
And the fact that she, as a Black woman, is heavily critical of the Black Lives Matter movement really hasn't sat well with many of her critics.
When George Floyd was killed by a police officer in May last year, instead of expressing sympathy and concern over the problem we have with police brutality and racism...
She instead posted a video criticizing the Black community for making a "martyr" out of Floyd, while pointing out his various arrests over the years... suggesting that he wasn't an innocent man who didn't deserve to have his life cut short by a police officer.
Owens then founded the "Blexit" movement...
Encouraging Black Americans to ditch their historic ties with the Democratic Party.
And just to make things even better...
Owens also strongly opposes gun control and once referred to the #MeToo movement as a "political witch hunt."
Of course, we're all entitled to our opinions...
There is no society that can survive without strong men. The East knows this. In the west, the steady feminization of our men at the same time that Marxism is being taught to our children is not a coincidence.— Candace Owens (@RealCandaceO) November 14, 2020
It is an outright attack.
Bring back manly men. https://t.co/sY4IJF7VkK
But Owens is known for taking hers that step too far and just becoming downright cruel... just like what she said on Twitter about Harry Styles when he posed for Vogue wearing a skirt.
She has also publicly attacked Democratic Congresswoman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, in the last month over her recount of the Capitol Building riot that was held by pro-Trump supporters...
The fact that you’re still trying to compare being escorted out of a building (as a precaution) to surviving a sexual assault and attempted murder is why most people think you’re mentally disturbed.— Candace Owens (@RealCandaceO) February 5, 2021
It’s also the reason society should never just #believewomen. #aocsmollet https://t.co/GL5hnkXzNu
And has claimed that AOC was lying about her whereabouts that day, as well as suggesting she was simply being dramatic when comparing her experience in the Capitol to her survival of sexual assault.
Oh, and who could forget?
Here is video of Candace Owens' full answer on nationalism and Hitler pic.twitter.com/NfBvoH8vQg— John Whitehouse (@existentialfish) February 8, 2019
Owens once referred to Adolf Hitler while discussing how she doesn't have a problem with the word "nationalism," saying:
"I think that the definition gets poisoned by elitists that actually want globalism. Globalism is what I don't want, if Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well — OK, fine. The problem is he had dreams outside of Germany. He wanted to globalize. He wanted everybody to be German."
So, as you can see...
Owens really isn't everyone's cup of tea!
And although she and her husband recently welcomed their first child into the world...
It doesn't seem like her new role as a mom is going to stop her from pursuing her conservative political career further.
Because she has just announced something pretty huge...
And people have a lot to say about it.

I think I just pulled something laughing.
Candace Owens talking about running for president... the part that’s actually bothersome is that she could probably get at least 70 million votes. She said Hitler wasn’t bad until he starting going for other countries.— DJ (@djohnso36) February 7, 2021
I'm Candace Owens and I'm running for President!!— A.J. | he/him/his (@ajhisnandez) February 7, 2021

Candace Owens thinking about running for President??? pic.twitter.com/fffTMX6xry— Zak (@ItzZak22) February 7, 2021
Yep, you guessed it!
Candace Owens has ambitions to soon run for president of the United States.
She tweeted this over the weekend:
I love America. Thinking about running for President. 🇺🇸— Candace Owens (@RealCandaceO) February 6, 2021
And while the details surrounding her presidential ambitions are currently unknown, we highly doubt that Owens is joking around about this one.
Make sure to stay posted for updates.
