WATCH: Candace Owens Smacks Down Democrats Jerry Nadler and Ted Lieu in Congressional Hearing

The House Judiciary Committee tried to insinuate that Candace Owens was a “white nationalist.”

At a House Judiciary Committee Meeting on the supposed rise of “white nationalism” in America, a black woman who was asked to testify shut down the Committee’s chairman and one of its brainless members.

“I think it’s pretty apparent that Mr. Lieu believes that black people are stupid and will not pursue the full clip in its entirety,” Candace Owens told the Committee.

She was referring to a doctored clip, shown to the Committee by Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.), which the esteemed Congressman used to suggest that Owens – a black woman – was a Hitler-praising white nationalist. That should be enough to solidify that the Committee hearing was a total clown show, but then Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) stepped in and removed all doubt.

“The witness will suspend for a moment,” he said banging the gavel. “It is not proper to refer disparagingly to a member of the Committee. The witness will no do that again.”

But Owens was not referring to Lieu when she used the word stupid. In any case, she agreed, and pointed out to Nadler that she was called “despicable,” earlier in the hearing.

“The witness may not refer to a member of the Committee as ‘stupid,'” Nadler said in response.

Then, Owens let him have it.

“I didn’t refer to him as stupid – that’s not what I said at all,” she told Nadler. “You didn’t listen to what I said. May I continue?”

Nadler shrugged embarrassedly as he was notified by some of his colleagues on the Committee that Owens had not, in fact, called Lieu stupid.

“As I said, he is assuming that black people will no go pursue the full two hour clip, and he purposefully extracted – he cut off and you didn’t hear the question that was asked of me,” she said. “He’s trying to present as if I was launching a defense of Hitler in Germany, when in fact the question that was asked of me was pertaining to whether or not I believed in nationalism.”

She further clarified her past comments on Hitler and nationalism for Lieu, who watched on sheepishly.
