Fox & Friends Forgets to Ask Candace Owens About Her Deleted Tweet Blaming ‘Leftists’ For Pipe Bombs


Candace Owens — the social media agitator who somehow failed upwards from hosting Infowars to regular appearances on Fox News thanks to a Kanye West endorsement — appeared on Fox & Friends Weekend Saturday morning.

Oddly, Fox & Friends neglected to ask Owens about the thing she’s in the news for: her now-deleted tweet insisting that the man who sent pipe bombs to prominent Democrats and CNN was a “leftist.”

“The only thing ‘suspicious’ about these packages is their timing,” Owens said. “Caravans, fake bomb threats—these leftists are going ALL OUT for midterms.”

As we now know, the bombs were not “fake,” and the alleged bomber is very much not a “leftist.” Yet weirdly, Owens’ reckless and asinine conspiracy theorizing about twelve bombs sent to public figures, including a former president and former secretary of state, did not come up in her interview with Fox & Friends.

Instead, Fox & Friends asked Owens about Barack Obama‘s “lies,” and she declared the former president “one of the biggest liars in American history.”

For all the other grifters who promoted false flag theories about the pipe bomber, The Weekly Standard has a nice and comprehensive list of updates on where they are now.

Have a tip we should know?
