During Donald Trump’s presidency, Candace Owens became on of the most popular Conservative pundits in the country. She really doesn’t have much of anything to say. Mostly her act is just feeding into the anger of White Republicans.
And Owens is often willing to go after the most vulnerable people in the country. On Wednesday, she chose to attack Zaya Wade, a transgender 12 year-old who is the daughter of Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.
Wade and Union have been overwhelmingly supportive of their daughter. An this fact enrages Owens. She told listeners, “His son now says that he is a woman and Dwyane Wade is…’this is who he’s always been.’ No it’s not! You’re not going to tell me that your child is wearing long nine-inch nails and a belly shirt because that’s just how they came out.”
The pundit continued, “Did he learn if from Instagram? Did he learn it in school? Did he learn it in a music video? Your child learned this behavior because there was an absence of masculinity in that child’s life and that makes sense for a basketball player.”
