Candace Owens had made a career being the “communications director” for the right-wing grift machine Turning Point USA, and she put those bonafides to work during an appearance on Fox News this Sunday.
Owens told Fox host Judge Jeanine Pirro that President Trump’s disapproval ratings, which are approaching 7o percent, are just fake news. But then again, Owens has never really been one for data and evidence.
“Sixty-nine percent of people aged 15 to 26 disapprove of President Trump’s performance as a president,” Pirro said during a panel segment that included TPUSA’s Charlie Kirk and longtime Trump surrogate Katrina Pearson. “Wait a minute — isn’t the economy doing great now? Or is it not?”
Trump is about as far away from punk as you can get, being a Fox news grandpa and *ahem* the CIC of the armed forces.
Side note: bring bigotry into an actual punk rock space and see how people react. You're not going to make friends. https://t.co/TS2Y68Pvse

Owens dismissed the numbers, saying that people “don’t pay attention to much to the polls.”
“But this president, in particular, will appeal more to the youth generation,” Owens said. “Something about him feels punk rock and rebellious. He’s rebelling against the establishment and the mainstream media.”
“It’s something we identify with,” she added. “When you are younger you are in a more rebellious stage.”
The numbers Pirro was referring to were from a Gallup poll released in late November, which showed a whopping six-in-10 Americans disapprove of the job Trump is doing as president. But Owens can’t be bothered with the facts. Trump is punk rock, and ScientificAmerican.com is just another “random website.”
