Sudden re-emergence of former President Barack Obama
Conservative commentator Candace Owens has claimed that the sudden re-emergence of former President Barack Obama is because of the Democrats are petrified of President Donald Trump winning over black voters ahead of the midterms.
Fox News host Steve Hilton quizzed Owens on whether Trump’s message about African Americans seeing the lowest recorded unemployment rate in U.S. history is resonating with the black community.
“It absolutely is making headway and we saw that a few weeks ago in the Rasmussen poll that black support for Donald Trump has doubled,” Owens said.
Owens serves as communications director for the conservative campus outreach group Turning Point USA, and has been vocal about her support of Donald Trump vocally and on social media.
In August, Neon Nettle reported that Trumps’ Black voter approval rating hit 31% according to a new Rasmussen poll, then reaching 36% nearly doubling the President’s African-American supporters.
“Let me tell you why that is significant,” said Owens.
“We have heard the left call everything, everyone, every story, every book, racist. They’ve said the word so much, it’s actually lost its meaning.”
“They’re doing that because they’re scared,” she added.
“Bringing back Barack Obama was a sign of fear. Make no mistake. They threw a Hail Mary.”
WJ reports: Owens highlighted recent actions which she characterized as failures for Democrats, including New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker’s “I am Spartacus” moment at the Kavanaugh Supreme Court confirmation hearings last week and California Congresswoman Maxine Waters’ constant diatribes against Trump, calling for his impeachment.
“It was actually just bizarre,” Owens said of Booker’s performance.

Owens gave credit to Obama for at least appearing reasonable while he was president, particularly in light of how progressives currently sound.
“He’s a very good salesman,” she said. “He was always calm. It always meant he was in control.
That is not what the Democrat Party looks like right now.”
“It is completely splintered,” Owens contended.
“We’re seeing progressives versus the traditional Democrats in this disruptive, sort of aggressive platform of socialism that’s reappearing and they’re unseating Democrats, which is bizarre.”
The commentator concluded, “So it’s a very interesting time. I think they’re under the impression, there is going to be a red wave, so that’s why they’re bringing back Barack Obama.”
In July, Owens predicted there will be a “major black exit” from the Democrat Party.
“There is going to be a major black exit from the Democrat Party, and they are going to have to actually compete for their votes in 2020,” she told Fox News.
