Anearly being widely mocked for his repeated and unsuccessful attempts to get former President Donald Trump to accept his position against the COVID-19 vaccine, Candace Owens hit the absolute lowest fruit and attacked Meghan McCain over her weight and “obesity”.
It was a deflection tactic that even Trump could be proud of; that is, if it wasn’t from the proud, unvaccinated Owens, with whom the former chief racist didn’t openly agree on the anti-vax rhetoric she’s been throwing up for some time now and amplified during their conversation.

In the interview, which was undoubtedly published by a far-right source who is also likely an anti-critical and pro-gun racial theory, Owens can be seen desperately trying to get Trump to say something negative about the vaccine, the vaccine mandate and even China. Surprisingly – and much to Owens’ chagrin – Trump refused to take the bait.
This part of the interview made Owens’ name one of the hottest topics on social media Thursday and Friday, which roughly coincides with when she started exchanging hateful tweets with McCain, who is also an ultra-conservative extremist. The two have a story because McCain disagrees with Owens discrediting the vaccine.
This must be why McCain tweeted Thursday: “Trump educating Candace Owens with facts and logic regarding getting the vaccine is really a sight to behold.”
Owens, in his feelings and clearly harboring a bruised ego, went on a rampage hours later by directly taking on McCain’s weight.
“Hey Meghan, did you know that the overwhelming majority of people who have died and / or hospitalized from Covid-19 are clinically obese? Owens quoted McCain on Twitter Thursday night. “People like you love the vaccine because it lets you pretend you care about your health. People like me see through this bullshit.
After Owens accused McCain of “losing himself in utter uselessness” – an ironic claim coming from someone who has been snubbed by Trump, a man she revere and set the tone for the Republican Party at large and conservative movement – McCain rejoiced that Owens’ hero [Trump] she checked it.
McCain punctuated this tweet in no uncertain terms.
“You are spreading misinformation about vaccine safety. You are a danger to public health, ”McCain wrote. “Fuck yourself.”
Both have a controversial vaccine-centric history dating back to September when McCain – a former hostess on the popular daytime TV show “The View” – had a few choice words for the “conservative charlatans” who she said made her ashamed “for getting the vaccine and trusting the doctors “. She called it “batshit madness” and called it “really the top of all the bullshit I can stand”.
Owens, apparently identifying with the term “Conservative charlatans”, couldn’t help but respond to McCain’s tweet.
“I still can’t figure out why @MeghanMcCain thinks it’s relevant, ”Owens replied on Twitter, adding that McCain rose to fame thanks to his father, the late US Senator John McCain. “Why can’t people talk about bad reactions to the vaccine? Owens asked dishonestly.
McCain replied, “Anyone who asks why I’m ‘relevant’ – because neither of you can seemingly keep my name out of your mouth.”
This week is far from the first time Owens has attacked someone who criticizes anti-vaccines by suggesting that being “extremely overweight” prevents such people from having an informed opinion about vaccinations.
“If you are extremely overweight, don’t think that you have the power to yell at fit, unvaccinated people to trust doctors, science and preventable death,” Owens tweeted in October without reference. to no one in particular. “A little self-awareness goes a very long way.”
Keep in mind that Owens is the same person who claimed that HPV – the most common sexually transmitted infection – is not contagious.
But there’s also the fact that co-morbidities such as obesity have been identified as actually increasing the risk and severity of COVID-19, something that could easily compel people who don’t conform to unrealistic societal standards. of so-called beauty and weight to be vaccinated voluntarily.
Beyond that, where is Candace Owens’ own moral “authority” that she says proponents of vaccine overweight lack? And how the hell did she ever win any? A growing body of evidence suggests she never had one in the first place.
