As Twitchy told you, earlier this week, Candace Owens took Ted Lieu to the woodshed for attempting to pull a “gotcha” with her admittedly cringeworthy remarks about Hitler and nationalism. Say what you will about Owens, but she essentially wiped the floor with Lieu, earning praise from, among others, Donald Trump Jr.:
Wow. Well done @RealCandaceO!!! Great to see someone call out the Dems on their purposeful manipulation of facts for their narrative. Since the media runs with anything they say and is the marketing wing of the DNC they aren't used to getting called out for the repeated BS.??? https://t.co/aQpVzF0clo

So, naturally, the brave firefighters have taken it upon themselves to try to salvage what’s left of Lieu’s sterling reputation. Here’s what Newsweek is doing to contribute to the cleanup effort:

See what they did there?
Hey guys, just here for the Ratio you lying POS!!!

Newsweek’s tweet has had some time to stew, and the ratio it’s cooked up is nothing to sneeze at:
They’ve definitely earned it.

Well that’s misleading

As someone skeptical of many of the things she's said and done, I must say, you are just pole-vaulting into the realm of bad judgment with this headline. Also…here for the well-deserved ratio.

#FakeNewsMedia this is legitimately one of the most dishonest headlines I have ever read.

This headline is completely irresponsible. Wow. Listen to the actual interview. She does not defend Hilter, in fact she calls him a homicidal maniac. I don’t usually subscribe to conspiracy theorists that claim the media is agenda driven, but this headline sure seems to be.

Not a fan of Candace or Don J. but this headline is wrong and disgusting, and this is why people don't trust the media. https://t.co/AhgQoamMwr

I remember my government class in high school in the 90s. We studied Newsweek as part of our curriculum. What a dumpster fire your publication has become…

Hard to argue with that assessment.
