Candace Owens Is Not Afraid to Say It: CNN Used ‘Ignorant’ LeBron as a Puppet, ‘Maxine Waters Is Not a Smart Person’

Conservative commentator Candace Owens called out CNN for using NBA star LeBron James to attack President Trump when he was promoting his taxpayer-funded “I Promise” school in Akron, Ohio.

From Biz Pac Review:

“I don’t want to take away from what he did — opening the school was an incredible feat — but Don Lemon got him in that interview,” Owens said on Tucker Carlson Tonight. “He wanted LeBron to say something [bad] about the president…They were there to get that five-second soundbite to say something nasty about the president, and that was going to be their news story.”

Owens said James is brilliant on the basketball court, but CNN used him as a puppet to promote its anti-Trump agenda. LeBron wasn’t there to talk about President Trump, but to tout the taxpayer-funded school he helped open to benefit underprivileged children in his home state of Ohio.

Owens said that by allowing himself to be used that was ignorant.

“I would welcome a dialogue with LeBron James,” she said. “But he is, in this regard, an ignorant man. I’m not going to refer to him as uneducated, but I am going to refer to him as ignorant. He knows very little about politics.” Owens explained:

The reason why CNN wanted to get LeBron James…they essentially attacked him without him knowing it and they used him, because what was also released at the same time? The Rasmussen poll [which showed that] black support for Donald Trump has doubled since this time last year.

So black people aren’t believing this [anti-Trump narrative] anymore. So what do [the liberal media] do? They go back to what they always do: They bring in a black idol, and they have the black idol say to the community, ‘Oh this is racist,’ and hope that we’re going to believe it. But we aren’t anymore.”

Lemon goaded James to the topic by saying “He’s kinda used sports to divide us.”

But James has gone after Trump in the past, for example, calling him a “bum” because of his stance against the NFL players kneeling for the national anthem.

Owens said it was ridiculous to say that calling someone ‘dumb’ was racist.

Indeed, it’s those on the left, who make the equation that saying someone is dumb is racist, who are actually being racist.

Candace called Lemon’s statements ridiculous. “The left has been operating under a very bizarre assumption that you can’t critique a black person in this country [because] it makes you automatically racist, is ridiculous and false,” she said.

Owens said she’s been called all kinds of racial slurs because she’s a conservative. “Maxine Waters is not a smart person. You can’t say that because she’s black? That’s ridiculous!”

Prayers that many Democrats will see the light and know they’re being played by the people they love. Nobodies got to know how you really vote at the voter’s box. For your children’s sakes please vote Republican and save our Sovereign Republic. We should all work together not against each other. God bless each and every voter that sees this. Amen.

Maxine Waters is not smart,? Really, by the way trump measures success she’s a genius. It’s a point that LeBron’s school is partially funded by tax payers? This school is far and above funded by James himself. It’s a public charter school. It’s a fantastic opportunity for that community and anyone that detracts from it is truly ignorant. Owens has got very complex neurosis’s and her sick mind is agenda… Read more »
