Candace Owens appeared on Fox News Wednesday to call out a racist attack on California gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder. She called the moment and subsequent lack of coverage “absolutely infuriating.” Elder was walking down a street in Los Angeles when a woman in a monkey mask threw an egg at him. The entire exchange is caught on video.

“I know Larry Elder, he’s a friend and a mentor. He’s a member of the board of my foundation,” Owens said. Her foundation, BLEXIT, is the anti-Black Lives Matter, advocating for Black people leaving the movement. “If this is on the other side, if a white woman wearing a monkey mask through an egg at a black democratic candidate this would be wall-to-wall coverage. Actually this might actually constitute a hate crime in Los Angeles.”

Larry Elder is the Republican candidate in the California recall election. Californians will vote on September 14th whether to remove current Governor Gavin Newsom and replace him with Elder or leave Newsom to finish his term. Elder has drawn attention because of his policies, including eliminating the minimum wage.

“She needs to be arrested and charges need to be brought, I’m not sure why she was wearing the monkey mask, I have no idea why she was wearing it but I would like to see more information about that,” Owens said.

Now, the election is already facing calls for an audit due to a software breach. Eight election security experts demanded that California’s Secretary of State Shirley Weber immediately audit the results of the recall election.

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
