Black Twitter says it knows a clout chaser when they see one and, according to their responses on social media, Candace Owens is the very definition of a thirsty fame seeker.

Owens, who openly campaigned against Donald Trump before he became president and is now No. 45’s most infamous Black supporter – especially now that Omarosa is out of the picture – has publicly challenged rapper Cardi B to a political debate.

This happened in the immediate aftermath of Cardi B sitting down with presidential candidate Bernie Sanders (D-Vermont) and endorsing his candidacy.

Owens, 30, even attempted to come off as altruistic or philanthropic when she offered the “Bartier Cardi” rapper $250,000 for a charity of her choice, in exchange for appearing at a predetermined public venue with Owens.

Cardi B fans immediately implored the 26-year-old Bronx-born beauty to not even condescend and acknowledge Owens. According to a sampling of Twitter responses, Cardi fans believe Owens is a vile and unscrupulous political degenerate who would try to come up off of Cardi’s colossal fan base and leverage it for her own political purposes.

For the record, Cardi B has nearly 50 million Instagram followers, which is more than 50 times greater than the number that Owens boasts (794K). Therefore, it makes no sense -personal, political or otherwise – for Cardi to even act like Owens even exists.
