Trump Jr. Lauds Candace Owens’ Explanation of Hitler Comments
During a House Judiciary Committee hearing on the rise of White Nationalism, Republicans had conservative activist, Candace Owens speak. Democrats seized on the opportunity as Congressman Ted Lieu (D-CA) played clips where she defended the actions of Adolf Hitler.
The decision to have Owens speak was roundly criticized by both liberal and conservative pundits. One Republican, however, felt that the director of communications for Turning Point USA acquitted herself well: Donald Trump Jr.
The president’s son argued, “Wow. Well done Candace Owens!!! Great to see someone call out the Dems on their purposeful manipulation of facts for their narrative. Since the media runs with anything they say and is the marketing wing of the DNC they aren’t used to getting called out for the repeated BS.”

Not every Republican agreed with Trump Jr. On CNN last night, Chris Cuomo argued that Owens was there to say outrageous things and “blow up the hearing.”
Conservative pundit, Steve Cortes agreed. He told Cuomo, “I thought it was a bad strategy. I want to persuade Americans of any color, black, brown, purple… that the America first strategies are working for them. To me, that’s the way, rather than throwing bombs,” So I didn’t like that strategy in front of the House committee today.”
