During the Question and answer portion During Candace Owens’ speaking event at the University at Albany earlier this week, a leftist in the crowd stood up and asked Owens what she would say to “the trans students on this campus who feel actively victimized by your presence here?”
As expected, Owens didn’t have much of it – and her terse response brought the mood down:
Candace Owens REACTS to bright college studentsYoutube
“Life is hard. Get a helmet, man. I’m too pregnant for that. Next question,” she said almost in disgust as cheers, applause, hoots and shouts filled the room.
She continued, “My goodness…someone just give me a free hug. … I can’t be your mom.”
Owens later Posted on X in reference to her mic drop moment that she was “in the 8th. That’s because your parents completely abandoned you. It’s not my job to coddle adults.”
She had more to say on the subject on her Wednesday Podcastnoting that many students spend tens of thousands of dollars to attend college “to be coddled.”
How do people react?
Numerous commenters on Owens’ YouTube page fully supported her handling of the Q&A:
- “Not only are these students ignorant, they are mean, rude and disrespectful,” one commenter said wrote. “It’s so hard to see them spewing their ignorance and insults. Your parents should be ashamed. I’m so sorry, Candace. I don’t know how you find the strength to keep speaking at these events.”
- “Candace has unlocked the ultimate snowflake response strategy: Send a pregnant conservative!” another commenter joked. “The best question and answer session ever.”
- “Candace sets the bar for how these interactions should be handled,” another commenter observed. “We’re past this whole ‘be nice to reinforce your agenda’ mindset. It’s time we give these people a reality check because that’s what they desperately need.”
- “I attend an Ivy League college and most people are shocked to learn that MANY of the students remain conservative or moderate behind closed doors because the crazy, bright students are always the ones who do or say something ridiculous goes viral,” another commenter said written down. “It’s like the old saying: ‘Empty vessels make the most noise.'”
