OWENS: IF YOU BELIEVE MARKLE THEN ‘I’M A NIGERIAN PRINCE AND GIVE ME YOUR CREDIT CARD’

Candace Owens appeared on Fox News Wednesday and had a lot to say about Piers Morgan publicly expressing strong doubts about Meghan Markle’s claims that the royal family was racist. Owens, while referring to claims made by Markle that a member of the royal family expressed concern over the color of her son Archie’s skin color before he was born, said that if anyone believes Markle’s claims about her son facing “anti-black racism,” “then I’m a Nigerian prince and give me your credit card.”

Hannity kicked off the segment by saying that the Democrats’ HR1 bill would essentially create a “speech czar, chosen by the president, who would be able to, basically, pick and choose which campaign finance laws get enforced and against whom, and even a truth detector about ads, raising concerns about silencing political speech. So what is going on across the pond may not be as distant as it seems.”

Hannity then turned his attention to Owens, saying: “I happen to like Piers, I know Piers, he’s a trip. He’s a fun guy. I don’t know if he got fired or left on his own. I wish he would have stayed because it was interesting television. I find it compelling to watch and I can’t stand anything about the Royals; it’s their thing, not mine. I respect it. Here’s the question: government regulators? HR1 would have fact-checkers of ads? Who’s gonna fact-check the fact-checkers?”

Owens replied: “That’s exactly right, and unfortunately in the United Kingdom they do not have First Amendment rights, and I hope that this story shows Americans why it is so important to have First Amendment rights,”

“Piers Morgan was all of us when he was dressing down Meghan Markle and calling her out on the blatant lies that she’s told. She can’t even keep her stories straight, by the way. If anybody remembers, about three years ago she said on a panel that she does not read newspapers, that she does not check social media because she doesn’t like to read stories about her.”

“Well, apparently that’s not true,” Owens continued, “because she’s now telling everybody that she was suicidal because of bad press, that’s because of racism, even though she’s not even — you look at her you would not be able to discern just by looking at Meghan Markle that she’s black. And so what they’re basically saying is that you’re not allowed to critique Meghan Markle. And for her to put in this phone call to have his (Morgan’s) voice silenced because she’s unhappy with the press that’s being said about her — which, by the way, is being felt across the globe — she’s a typical leftist narcissist.”

“It really has less to do with the Royals than it has to do with a typical leftist, ‘progressive’ in Hollywood — seeing something traditional and then saying, ‘You know what? That thing is history. That thing has tradition. I’m gonna call it racist and I have the grounds to call it racist,’” Owens, who recently gave birth to a baby boy, said. Acknowledging that she and Markle are both of mixed ancestry, Owens noted: “If you’ve seen a picture of Archie, and you believe he has suffered anti-black racism, then I’m a Nigerian prince and give me your credit card. It’s so ridiculous.”

Hannity brought the discussion back to HR1, suggesting that he is worried the mitigation of free speech could happen in America in a similar fashion to the way it has been pin England.

Owens replied: “It’s already happening here; it’s already happening here. The fact-checkers, what’s really going on, we have seen it in America already that the speech is starting to get tighter and tighter, and when you’re starting to say you’re not even allowed to have an opinion — forget a fact, you’re not even allowed to have an opinion — in his (Morgan’s) opinion he believes Meghan Markle’s lying. I agree with him. Why aren’t we allowed to have an opinion anymore without people telling us, ‘Your opinion is no longer safe’? It’s dangerous.”
