Kilmeade Presses Candace Owens Over Kanye West’s ‘Bush Doesn’t Care About Black People’ Quip

Candace Owens, the pro-Trump YouTube vlogger whose world somehow collided with Kanye West’s after the rapper endorsed her in a tweet, appeared on Fox & Friends for yet another cable news hit on Tuesday morning.

The frequent InfoWars guest was asked by host Ainsley Earhardt what she thought about Kanye West’s remarks to Hot 97’s Ebro Darden that he “loves Donald Trump.”

“This is who Kanye West is fundamentally, a free thinker,” Owens explained.

“You know he’s the same guy who said George Bush doesn’t like black people at a telethon for victims of Katrina?” Brian Kilmeade asked.

Kilmeade is of course referencing the infamous comment made by Kanye West live on NBC in 2005 while presenting a Hurricane Katrina telethon alongside an unsuspecting Mike Meyers.

Owens argued that people’s opinions can change, noting that two years ago she was a liberal.

“Well he never took it back,” Kilmeade contended.

Co-host Steve Doocy asked what Owens “has learned” since getting her Kanye endorsement, and the YouTuber went full InfoWars:

“I’ve learned that the left would like their slaves back. They’ve created a system where black people are ideological slaves.”

“Alright,” Doocy reacted.

“Candace, stay strong, I know this has been a difficult week for you,” Earhardt added.
