Our favorite conservative commentator, Candace Owens, made short work of former President Barack Obama on his claim that America is a country full of racist white people.
During a segment on “Hannity,” Owens was asked about Obama’s new memoir and his claim that Trump was only elected because the American people were scared of a black man in the white house.
Owens called the claim “despicable.”
In Obama’s memoir, “A Promised Land,” he claims that Trump’s presidency was the result of “millions of Americans spooked by a Black man in the White House.”
“It felt like we finally had arrived at a place in this country where we could put the past in the past,” Owens said.
“Barack Obama became the president of the United States because White Americans supported him. And rather than show some unity, rather than show some respect for this country that gave him literally everything he has, he turns his back … and says, ‘Look at this despicable country. It’s broken,’” Owens said.
“He is the first president that has ever sat in the White House and come out … hating America,” she noted.
“Do you think that [Democrats] could have the humility to pause for a second and say, ‘You know what? Maybe it’s not because every single person in America is a racist,’” she said.
“People are standing behind Donald J. Trump because he is an effective and good leader who tells the truth and doesn’t … run on identity politics,” she said.
