Fox Guest Suggests Charlie Kirk, Candace Owens Organized Antifa Altercation: ‘I’m Suspicious of This’

On Monday night, liberal commentator Chris Hahn floated the idea that Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens were the real masterminds behind the chaotic confrontation with Antifa protestors at a restaurant in Philadelphia.

Earlier in the morning, Kirk and Owens were disrupted by protestors while eating breakfast. And once they were chased outside, one of the protestors threw water on Kirk.

The radio show host began by telling Laura Ingraham that he doesn’t support “this kind of protesting” and that “going where people are eating breakfast” is not the time or place.

“That said, I was very dubious on this protest. I don’t know how these people found Charlie Kirk and Miss. Owens- Candace Owens in Philadelphia,” Hahn said. “I’m suspicious of this whether or not this is real or not. I’m not saying I know for sure, I don’t. But it’s kind of weird to me.”

He then compared the public profiles of these Turning Point USA leaders to Ingraham’s to make his case.

“You’re a much bigger star, you can go out to breakfast and nobody is protesting you,” Hahn told the Fox News host. “So I’m a little dubious on this whole thing but this kind of protest shouldn’t happen.”

Hahn also condemned President Donald Trump for calling the media the “enemy of the people.”

“That is a real problem in America and I think that everything has got to calm down and with got to debate like we are doing right here right now,” Hahn continued. “Dan [Bongino] and I disagree on just about anything, but I love Dan and I enjoy debating Dan about issues that affect America. And that’s the kind of discourse we need right now, not yelling and screaming.”
