Candace Owens is one of President Donald Trump's most loyal allies, particularly in her efforts to increase Trump's support among Black Americans.
Owens is highly critical of the Black Lives Matter movement, LGBTQ rights, and pro-choice policies.
On Monday night, she continued her advocacy for Trump on far-right Fox News host Tucker Carlson's show, where she proceeded to paint Trump as the "law and order" candidate—a questionable talking point the pro-Trump camp has belabored for years.
Except in making the point to Tucker Carlson, Owens accidentally got mixed up.
Looks like Candace Owens flubbed her talking point.
Owens: "You are either on the side of mob rule or you are on the side of law and order. And I am on the side of mob rule. Tomorrow, I'll be casting my ballot for Donald J. Trump."
Tucker: "Amen. Nicely put." pic.twitter.com/9n1TnBtRTZ

After repeating Trump's claims that antifa would invade the suburbs and wreak havoc, Owens said:
"You are either on the side of mob rule or you are on the side of law and order. And I am on the side of mob rule. Tomorrow, I'll be casting my ballot for Donald J. Trump."
Carlson responded with, "Nicely put."
Given the number of Trump associates who've been arrested and/or convicted, coupled with Trump's frequent veiled calls to violence on Twitter, many of his critics find it questionable why his supporters deem him on the side of "law and order," even when contextualized by the term's roots in the racist Southern Strategy of 1960s Republicans.
Some thought her inadvertent characterization of Trump as the "mob rule" candidate ended up being more accurate.
Eventually the truth always emerges. https://t.co/rtr2sJmdQp

Candace Owens accidentally says exactly what she means.

People soon began roasting her and the party for which she advocates.
Welp. You can't say you weren't warned. She is on the side of mob rule as if that wasn't already ABUNDANTLY clear. https://t.co/YHxYQdBuPg

LMAO. @RealCandaceO said the quiet part loud and @TuckerCarlson agrees because he's just a racist bobblehead with a dumb haircut. https://t.co/VHYP9p9jyi

Both @TuckerCarlson and @RealCandaceO are idiots. Both calling for violence. @FoxNews this is on you. https://t.co/5hIUxFfgmg
