Hey everybody. This is Sally Hendrick was shout your cause and I'm so excited to have double D mother today. The real double D mother also known as Tiffany Jones. Welcome.
Thank you. Thank you so much. I appreciate it.
You're welcome. I really am so glad and humbled that you said yes, you would come on the podcast. I have been following you on TikTok for over a year and absolutely love your content. Love the way you bring across the current news and the, the mess that's going on out there. So thank you.
So welcome. I'm so glad to be here.
Awesome. Awesome. Well, speaking of podcasts, now that you're on this one, tell me you've just got a brand new podcast you just started. What's it called?
It's called the Realty with double D. I am so excited about it. It's going well. I really love it. I've got to be discussing politics and then I'm also going to be discussing maybe some personal episodes here or there. Just, just a personal things about my life, but mainly it's going to be running down the big news stories of the day or either every other day.
Are you doing are you going to do an episode every couple of days or so.
I'm going to try to put out an episode every couple of days I've been what I've been trying to do was kind of spread my content out or just do a little bit like on TikTok and then say, Hey, I'll talk about this in detail on my podcasts, but I'm gonna try to do an episode at least every other day. Now I've been, I've been really good at doing it every day, except for the weekend. Cause I just, I just really got it started last week. So I'm thinking I'm going to try to do it every day, especially if there's some oui news that come up
Well. Yeah, I mean, [inaudible] well, and it's easier to, to really expand what you mean because it's so hard to be misinterpreted in a one-minute video on TikTok. Like you can try to cover a topic, but the deeper you want to go with it, you just can't get there because
Exactly, exactly. And I love the podcast because I don't have to get dressed for it. I can literally just pop on my headphones and start recording. And I love that.
Exactly know what's funny is that my first season of this podcast, I went way overboard with editing the video and having us side by side and talking over on and having that on YouTube where you could see the video and then I would embed it on my blog and I did all this stuff and it was just like, this is a lot of work. And so finally for this season, I streamlined it. I've got a little one of my favorite software program that I use for my business has a podcasting feature on it. So I use that as well, and it's made it so much easier and everything. So it's, I commend you for trying to do it every day, but I will say that if you do it once a week or you do it less often, don't worry. You're still gonna get heard. And you know, you could even do a wrap up of the week because committing for that much every day or every other day is it's, it's a big commitment takes, takes a lot to do.
Oh yes it does. And with my babies, I have my kids. So it's hard. I have to do it late at night once they go to bed. So that's a whole nother story, but anyway. Yeah.
And and if you ever wanted any guests on there, I'm sure the back and forth commentary would be fun too. Makes it easier. That's always good. So I love the fact that you've used a lot of different news sources. You always have like a picture in the background behind you showing your news source. Tell me how is it that you choose a new source and deem it to be a viable source, one that you can trust? What, where do you start with that?
Typically when I'm looking for stories or sometimes stories find me if you believe it or not, they kind of find me because I have a, I have a master following where people will alert me when there are certain things that's going on. But I have a lot of I have a lot of apps on my phone. Like I have the news break app and I have CNN and I have several sources. Now the good thing about me is I'm not just going to check one story. I mean, one place I'm going to go to multiple places. Like if there's something let's say there's a lawsuit that has been filed and it pops up on CNN, but CNN doesn't have a copy of the actual lawsuit. I'm a paralegal by trade. So I will go and find the actual the actual filing.
And I'll put that behind me. And sometimes I'll read it to make sure that CNN has gotten it correct. Not saying that CNN will be wrong, but I just have to be careful with what I put out because I really want it to be really accurate news. So the first thing that I'll do, if something pops on my phone, I may story on over to Twitter to see what people are saying. And then I start digging in doing my research and that's just simply looking at different news articles. If there's a lawsuit, I look up the case if there's any other videos, like if it's something that they said that this person had said on video, I will go and dig and try to find the video. And nine times out of 10, you're going to be able to find that video on Twitter all the time.
Okay. So tell me, how do you search on Twitter to find things? How do you start?
I just go up to the search bar and I'll type in just say I was looking for something on Matt Gates and let's say Matt gates got married, like when he got married. So I'll just type in Matt Gates married and it'll pop up. Like the pictures popped up what little little clips that not, excuse me, what other news articles that possibly were out there. Because unfortunately with that one, I was a little bit late, but sometimes I'm early where there is no news articles and then I have to do the research by myself. If that makes sense.
I love those, you know, what's so funny is that I'll send videos or I'll make videos or I'll find something. And I will explain it to some of my family members and they will be like, no, that's not true. And then like four days later, it'll be national news. And then they'll call me and they'll say, how did you know that? Like so early. And I'm like, because I'm on the ground with the grassroots where the news is being made and that's what I'm listening to and looking at. And plus a lot of people don't really realize when they're not news junkies like us, they're not out there realizing that the national news is just lifting up the news from the ground. They're not breaking it.
You have to, you have to be like for for Texas I have the Texas Tribune. Like I subscribed to them because they have that low level news. That's going to take maybe a day or two to hit, you know, public. I remember when this whole scandal went down with Matt gates and I'm actually subscribed to oh my God. I think it's the Centennial. I think it is that's in Florida. And it was when he, when that first scandal broke, whenever they were saying he was being investigated. I knew it before it even hits like CNN and all that and reported it because I was in with the, I think it's called the Centennial, the Centennial news.
Yeah. I think you're right about that. I think I've, I've looked into that as well. Makes a lot of sense. One of the things I want to bring up that you would be interesting to you and it kind of goes along the same lines last year when schools were getting ready to open in 2020, and you know how there was just so much chaos, just like it was this year, except this year. I'm not sure what the heck the politicians were doing. But last year there were just all this, the delays and the cases and things happening in the summer and it wasn't getting reported in the news correctly. And it wasn't going up to the national level and people who were on the paying attention to reports here and there they're like, this is crazy. This is this is not okay.
There were teachers groups that were discussing it. There was so much chaos and disorganization amongst the whole school, everything and politics and everything. It just wasn't making any sense. And this girl that was in touch up, I feel like she was in Kansas city, but I'm not a hundred percent sure I'd have to go back. And then was Morris, something, Morris, Alyssa, or Alicia Morris. And I interviewed her and she was a teacher getting ready to go back to school. And she was teaching like theater or something like that. And she started really paying attention to the news and she was gathering up all these articles from everywhere and she was creating her own database of what was happening in schools around the country. And she ended up getting picked up by every major news network for personal interviews all over the place. And I interviewed her on the podcast as well.
I was like, we've got to talk because I really want to discuss this issue. And it was just so fascinating, but school was getting ready to start in the NEA, which is the National Education Association. They asked her if they could take over the database. And she said, yes, because I can't do this. I'm getting ready to start teaching school. And I can't keep following all the news. She said she, she wasn't sleeping. She was just really worried. And it was a very different, a very different emotional energy back then, I guess. But it was so interesting to see how she was taking all of the individual reports around the country and was able to actually compile quite the database of proof about the situation that we were heading into.

Yeah. Look at you as the same way, but I want to tell you that I have to say you're so fricking entertaining. Please just do your little thing. You always say, Hey playas, and that's your hashtag as well. Hey playas, And but tell what you always say, this is [inaudible] you do that for me, please.
This is double D mother with the black year and news where I'm black and the news is always petty is but accurate. I heard the petty is heck part earlier today, which was so funny. And then the black written days where I'm black and the news is always accurate. That's just, I love it. So creative. All right. So tell me, who are some of your who were some of your favorite tech talkers out there? Well, I have under the desk news, of course, the V do you know under the desk?
No, I did have no, but I've never talked with her, but you know what? I probably ought to reach out to her.
She's great. She's great. And she will talk with you. She's great. She's a great person. She embraced me when I had about maybe a hundred thousand, maybe 200,000 followers at the time I was covering the Derek Sharvin trial and she actually told all her followers, Hey, I'm not covering it, but someone who's covering it really well is double D mother. I didn't even know she watched my content. And she actually put a whole bunch of people, got gained a whole bunch of followers from that. And she and I, we talk all the, all the time. So I, I love her. And then also CiKeithia is another creator that I enjoy. She doesn't do politics, but she does motivational. I really enjoy CiKeithia. She is she's actually a really good friend of mine and has helped me tremendously with her motivational talks, but we also just become free. And so I really enjoy her content. And then let's see, I really don't, you know, I'm going to be honest with you because I'm always on TikTok. Doing content is it's rarely that I get to watch content. And that's really sad for me to say, but I don't get to watch a whole lot of content. Let me try to see there's another political TikToker that I really enjoy. Let me see crazy. What is that crazy mother runner?
Yeah, I really,
Yeah. I love when she does the ten four hat deal. So yeah, she's another one that I really enjoy content, very original content. She's she's funny. She's, she's really hilarious. And then last but not least another person that I've talked to outside of the app is Lisa. The news lady that she does she's actually a real, like journalist a reporter, and she does like the, she does the deep dive into all the financial stuff. That's going on, you know, the,
Are you talking about the blonde woman hers? Oh, she's so good.
And she's a sweetheart and she was following me and I didn't even know. And she, and I saw it and then we started inboxing each other and we've been cool ever since she's really a good a good person to have
And yeah. And she can tell she's definitely like a real on TV newscaster type type woman. Yeah. Yeah. I've been following her awhile too. I love to get her rundowns because she really does break down all of the details on some of these more difficult legislative type things that maybe, you know, the normal person's not going to understand. And she really does break it down in and make it simple to understand.
I stopped covering it after I saw a lot of her reporting because I don't have the time to sit and read 180 pages of a budget reconciliations. Yeah. I don't have that time for that. So I just go to her and if anybody wants to know anything, I suggest you go over to Lisa and she'll and she'll make it do what to do for sure.
Nice, nice. Okay. So I know that you are in Louisiana, but I don't know exactly where, but every do you know, people that have had been displaced how's how're things going down there as far as, since hurricane Ida has come through,
There's actually there's actually a I guess you would call it four evacuees. We have a place here for them that they created at the the rec center and there's about three there's, about 300 people there. And actually my husband and I just did Saturday, took some more supplies over there for them. They were asking for supplies again on Facebook. So they need, they, they they're constantly in need of like Lysol wipes and Lysol and things like that. Try to keep it clean, but there were several of them there, but they're supposed to be going back because the mayor just announced. I believe it was Friday that people that were displaced kids started going back home here where I live. We only got a wind and rain and I got one tree on my house. And I believe maybe a few trees fell into town because it was about 45 mile an hour right.
Winds. But it didn't affect us that way. So we have some of the evacuees here. One of my best friends, his name is Derek. He lives in new Orleans. He went to Houston and he, he just went back this weekend as well. So that's the only people that I know, but it's been really sad to see what hurricane Ida did. People are just now getting their electricity back. There's still about 300,000 people that don't have electricity in and around new Orleans and also Mississippi. So that's really devastating, but they are working on it. There was a lot of damage. So the grid, as well as a lot of power lines down, trees fail. So it was to be expected, but not for this long, so hopefully they can get that running as soon as possible.
Yeah. And it's hot and, and, and it's, I'm in Nashville, Tennessee, so it's hot here, but it is not like Louisiana hot. It's just a whole different kind of hot.
Exactly. They, you could literally cut the humidity with the knife. Like the next day I thought about all of those people being out of electricity and how hot it is. Like it was 97 degrees, but the humidity, you literally walk outside and you were just drenched. That's the horrible part. It was so bad for people that they were taking their, their, like, like sitting in their cars to keep cool. And then that's bad because they were running out of gas because, and then there's no gas around. So it was just a mess, but things are getting back, you know, they're, they're starting to build back better. I love to say that they're starting to peel back better and I think it's, it's going to be okay,

So how want to get just a little bit into some of these characters out there, and I'm talking about the political characters, the ones that are causing so much ruckus around this country, what was it that made you start reporting on? Let's say like musty Marjorie, or frumpy dump Trump or Lauren bobble or whatever nicknames do you have, you know, like what made you pick up wanting to report on politics?
I came to TikTok during the pandemic and it was literally supposed to be a vice for me to make movie remake movies and dance, and just have a good time and do things that I really just can't do around people that really know me. So I was like, well, you know, I can just do that all on there. And I really love movies. So I only thing I ever saw was people on TikTok, redoing movies. So I was like, you know, I'm just going to do that. And then one day I was strolling and I saw Vanessa Douglas, which is another TikToker who I enjoy. I forgot her. Vanessa Douglas. She was talking about Brianna Taylor. That was the one that wanted endangerment. Charges had came down in her case. And she was talking about Brianna Taylor.
And it, it just was like, oh, so people get on here. And they actually, you know, talk about things. I can't believe that because at that point I was still on the movie and dancing part of TikTok. I didn't know that was even a thing. So I mustered up the energy to, well, the confidence, I would say, not the energy. I mustered up the confidence to make a video about that particular situation. And I went from about a thousand followers at that time to like seven or 8,000, just with that one video where I talked about Brianna Taylor and then Donald Trump, which I called them frumpy, dumpy. He came out with the platinum plan. And if you remember what the platinum plan was, it was just basically a bait and switch type of deal to try to get the black community, to vote for him.
And also around the same time, I saw a lot of black people saying that their vote didn't count. So I decided to make a TikTok about that and that tick tock about the Donald frumpy dump and his platinum plan. And it went viral from there. I decided that I was making that my initiative to educate people on the fact that their votes do count and that they need to understand that not only voting for the, if you're not vote, if you're saying that your vote doesn't count for the president, then you're definitely not voting in your local elections. So that's what makes me branch out to talking about members of Congress, talking about these lower level people, because if you're not voting for the president of the United States, there's no way that you're voting for your, your judges, your chief of police, you know, things like that. You're not voting for those things. So that's literally what made me want to talk about it. They can see them a Lockie that's going on as the fact that they have the power to change it by casting their ballot.
Yeah. And you know what happened in Tennessee? We had a Senate race going on and gosh, I'm trying to think, oh, here I am going to bring it up. And then I won't be able to remember her name. Her name was Margaret. And she was out of Memphis and was running for Senate. And, you know, you had the, the typical, good old boys doing their thing. And you had a couple of Republicans that were acting like utter fools when it came to the pandemic and advice and so on and so forth. And they were all having this hot in the media fight. Well, she wasn't having a hot in the media fight with the democratic candidate, but when it came time for the election, she beat the heck out of the democratic guy for the primary. And so she ended up losing against the Republican, that one for the, the Senate. But that was to replace, I believe it was to replace Lamar Alexander who had been our Senate Senator for a long time on the Republican side and we also have Marsha Blackburn
Marsha, Marsha, Marsha, Marsha, Marsha, that's the last.
But anyway, it was really interesting because there was a grassroots effort and there was a, there was a thing going on that just wasn't getting above the radar. So people weren't seeing it necessarily. So when she came up in one, it was, it was like, oh, wait a second. Maybe our votes do count.
So at that, and Stacey Abrams is obviously the queen of making that happen. She's the reason that Georgia turned blue and but we have to give credit to all the people on the ground that actually woke up and listened.
Absolutely, absolutely. The people that were out doing the footwork and implementing our plan are definitely instrumental in flipping Georgia. And I'm hoping that we can see some of that in Texas with Beto who has, you know, kind of mimic kind of mirrored what Stacy Abrams was doing in Georgia. I believe that he's going to try to mem if he doesn't run for governor, I believe that he's going to try to mirror what she does, what she did, because he's already launched like a drive by voting kind of deal, where he will drive to you to get your ballot and help you if you need to get registered. And all of that, which I think is going to be awesome for Texas, especially with these new voter restriction laws.
Yeah. Which is kind of crazy. I can't, it's hard. It's so hard for me to even keep up with what all is going on. I just know that the controversial stuff that's happening is in Texas and in Florida for the most part, but you've got it in other places too. You've got things going on in Missouri and Arkansas and Iowa and just other places as well. And I've been trying to talk with people from the different areas to see what they know when it comes to governor. Again, we're talking, let's go back to Texas and talk about Greg Abbott a little bit. Do you have a nickname for him yet?
Yes. He's apple head Abbot,
Apple head Abbot. I miss that. I miss that Gregg apple head Abbot. Well, he has definitely been a difficult one to stomach. And these, these last witness last week with the cause what is today? Today's just the what the seventh, seventh, it's only been, it's only been since the first that the abortion law went into effect. And then I think maybe the, a couple of videos ago on your TikTok, you talked about you showed his video where he's talking about, oh, you have six weeks and blah, blah, blah. And that just kills me that a man is saying that when I haven't run across any man who realizes that the first two weeks of pregnancy are not even, you're not even pregnant.
Exactly. Exactly. And that's what he was saying there. See, today he signed [inaudible], which is that voter suppression bill that he had. And during that, he was asked while he was signing. He, he was asked about if someone is raped or if this incest what are they supposed to do? You know? And then that's where he rattles off. Well, yeah. Well, he was like, well, you have six weeks and we will, we will do anything to get rid of rapist in Texas or whatever. That's, it's a crime, but yeah, that is the crime. But here's the thing. Nope. I don't know any woman, unless they're really, really trying to get pregnant. I'm talking about like checking their ovulation. I'm talking about someone that's going in to get in vitro fertilization that actually knows that they're pregnant before six weeks. I don't know anyone that does that.
And then if a person even reports that, that they've been raped on the first day, they're still, they still don't know that they're pregnant at that point. And plan B don't always work work. So I don't know what apple head Abbott is doing. I think that he is the, I think he's terrible for the state of Texas. I believe that he has ran the state of Texas into the ground, but this is what's going to be good for Texas. Is this abortion thing that he just did, that, that is going to off some Republicans as well. There are some Republican women that want to be able to get abortions, and they're not going to be able to do that in the state of Texas. They're going to have to go to other places. So apple head, the COVID and also this abortion thing is going to end here.
I hope so. I hope you're right, because, and I hope that it ends DeSantis and Abbott, and we've got Bill Lee who just, Billy never leads the charge. He's a copycat kind of guy, but he definitely comes in and does the copycat thing, but then he'll turn around and he'll do something like, oh, okay, well, we will let the Nathan Bedford Forrest a bus leave the Capitol. But but boy did it take a long time before that happened. And I lived down here downtown and I'm right next to the Capitol. Like it's literally out my back door and and I could walk by, I see all the protests, I see everything that's going on over, over there. And it's just pretty amazing how you've got, you know, a couple of really loud, really emboldened governors that use the worst gas lighting I've ever seen. They're they they're very much like Trump has done where let's go talk about this over here, like this fire over here, make you look at that and think that that's, what's the problem. And while they turn around and they, you know, pass some obscure little line into some law or something that they will overturn and nobody will understand the significance of it, because what they've done is they're like, oh, let's find a scandal to get everybody focused on that. So we can go over here and do what we're really meant to do.
Exactly. Exactly. You are 100% correct.

And it's always happening and it seems to continue to happen, but that is the Republicans game. They blame the Democrats for playing a lot of political theater, but they are the Kings and Queens of political theater. 100%.
Yeah. Well it's like dirty below the belt type of stuff. Yeah. And I mean, I'm sure everybody's got their, they're saying they want to say about it. I've always been like, kinda middle of the road, but when you're talking about the Overton window, which is, you know, the middle of the, supposed to be the middle of the road when it's shifted so far to the right over the last 20, 30, 40 years we're not recognizable anymore as a society, correct? Not in our politics.
No. And it's just getting worse and worse and worse and worse. And I, I really don't know what, especially in these Republican led states, just, just think about it, California. They're doing pretty good. You know, even though they got the recall effort of Gavin Newsome, they're deliberately decent, you know, even though New York with with Cuomo being re resigned. I mean, they still, they still did. Okay. He had a few scandals here or there, but they still did. Okay. I mean, Gavin Newsome had the largest surplus in California history during the pandemic and he was able to implement one of the largest universal free lunch programs for students in history. I mean, come on now. So I don't know. I just think it's this just a game there, I guess. Yeah,
Yeah. Yeah. And I wish, you know, when you talk about free lunch programs, that's an issue that's happening here in Tennessee as well. You've got a lot of people who are leaving one area. I talked about this on the last episode with, with Jess crazy mother runner. But basically what's happening is you've got, you know, you know, how you had white flight in the sixties and seventies where desegregation was happening in schools and you take Nashville. For example, you've got a lot of people who packed up and moved south towards Franklin, Tennessee, which is where that insane school board meeting happened last month. And, and basically that's what happens. You've got this white community that went and rebuilt in another place and took their money with them. And they left a lot of the places in Nashville behind, including like east Nashville is in north Nashville and some other places that took a long time to recover, but have become like the hip and trendy places to be these days.
But what's happening in the small rural areas in Tennessee, like where I'm from, I'm from west Tennessee, just about an hour north of Memphis. And I went to college in Memphis. And so I grew up around a very diverse area. As far as the black and white communities, you, you couldn't avoid being segregated if you will. You know what I mean? There was no place to fly to in those communities. They tried to do it, obviously they had, you know, different schools that were, that were for people of color versus versus not. And, but once the laws changed it all, it, it, it all came together and was desegregated. But these days in the last 15 years now you've got people moving from one zip code to another, and then having enough people in the town to build a new school, they're literally leaving behind these older older towns that are very established and they're leaving behind kids in such a way. And I did an analysis on this, in my hometown when they left, they left behind a median income for the society there of about $30,000 and moved to a zip code five minutes away. And now it has a $65,000 median income. And you also go from a 98%, a school lunch program at the prior city and then the new town. It's only about 15% on the free lunch program. So talk about walking away and, and leaving behind a whole group of people and that's happening right now. Wow.
And it's not just there. It's all over the state.
Wow. Yeah. Come on now Tennessee. Come on.
Yeah, I know. It's it makes me, oh, it makes me mad, but it also, it makes me want to dig in and really show the statistics and show people. It's like, look, when you have this type of society, I always so much better. When I was in high school, granted there was kind of an imaginary line through town about who lived, where, but then of course that started to change. But as far as like, like my class, when I go back and we had our 30 year reunion a couple of years ago, and I went back and out of 175 kids, we had 130 show up and we were all dancing and having a great time all together. We were such a good class. And it almost seems like right after that, cause this was like the late eighties, right after that is when everything started to really go downhill in the town and with relations between each other.
I don't know what unraveled, but it's almost like we had this principle that seemed to be the kind of the glue that held things together. You know? He was a great, great man, but he retired not long after I graduated. So I feel like, I don't know. It feels, it seemed just seems like something shifted. And then this whole unraveling of that town started happening. And, and as soon as one town figures out how to do it, they share it with others and they all start doing it. It's kind of like the Republicans share their legislation.
Wow. Yeah. I can agree with that. This, this is just, I just don't know. I really don't know what to say about that. Cause I didn't know anything about it.
Yeah. Well, it's, it's one of my passion projects that I tried to get a grant to do a study for it, but I didn't win the grant, but I really wasn't as focused as I needed to be. Not since I've been doing the podcast, you know, I really decided to focus on the podcast and really bring that up. So I could at least, you know, get some awareness going about a lot of the issues happening around the country and just all over the world. Really. I've interviewed a lot of different people, about a lot of different things. We just happened to be focusing this season on TikTok, creators, and misinformation and politics and immigration and all kinds of different things that we're going to be, we're going to be talking about.

All right. So really the last thing I want to kind of bring up is what is up with Candace Owens? Can you give me a breakdown of what's her deal? What's she doing?
You know, I don't typically speak a whole lot about Candace Owens. The reason why is because I don't like to share my platform with people that that to me are disingenuous and they are opportunists, then they, and they do anything for a check. But I, I chose to speak on the, the situation that was going on with Candice as of late, because it was just it was just too much karma for me. You know, she has done a, a trench for herself that she will never get out of. Candace Owens is a stain to me on the black community. We, we, we, we are anybody that's in the black community for serious, that seriously in black community and is not embarrassed by her antics should be a shame. It's okay to be a Republican. A black Republican is okay, you know, to have a different belief of conservative belief, but at the end of the day to use your black skin and your blackness and insulted to make a come up is a, is a complete disgrace.
So he recently, Candace has been getting a bit of karma now, from what I understand of it, this young lady Kimberley classic was actually a a dancer or a stripper or whatever. But, you know, she says that she wasn't, she said that she was not this, this this girl, Kimberly classic. So Candace Owens, maybe a few months ago that those two were beefed out about something. I don't know. They're, they're both conservatives, you know, there can only be one token black girl pure pure genre. So she didn't want to share that limelight with Kimberly classic apparently. So they were beefed out upset with each other and then canvas decided to invite Kimberley, placing onto her show. Kimberly classic said that she couldn't do it in the month of August. And then Candice suggested that she come in the come in September and then Candice says this on her Instagram live that Kimberly gets all kind of like offended.
Like, why are you saying September? Like what's up with September, blah, blah, blah. So Candace clients, like after this is over, she does research and finds out that Kimberly classic was a a stripper and her husband was the manager of the strip club. Now, when I made this video about this, this went viral on TikTok. It had almost a million views on it. And everyone that's from Baltimore, that area, that, that, that girl was supposed to be dancing in. They said that she was, you know, that she was a stripper, but it's, I mean, it, it is what it is. I mean, if you're, if you were a stripper, just, just cited, but she sued, she sued Candace saying that Candace defamed her name and she sued her for $20 million. So that was the first story that I did. And really deep inside, I was kind of hoping that Kimberly was not a stripper because, you know, Candace needs to pay the Piper at some point.
And I feel like that would be nothing but good karma to come back to her. And if she has to pay that girl for defaming her name, but we don't know, I don't know what's going to come out in that. So then after that, Candace so after that, Candace decides that, you know, she, she takes a break from social media or some sort, she, she's not posting for a couple of days. And we know that's how Candace makes her money is by her engagement on Twitter and Instagram. So she's going to constantly, you know, keep posting, you know, she's going to post all the time. So she stops posting people start noticing. And then they're saying that a Candace dropped out of a couple of speaking engagements that were paid. So everybody's speculating that she possibly had COVID and this has admitted that she's not vaccinated or anything like that.
So everybody's like, where is she? So two hours after people start talking about it, she started back posting again. Then the next day, I guess, Candace really wasn't feeling good because she was seeking to get a COVID test. She was in Aspen, Colorado. She tried to go get a COVID test. And she couldn't the owner of the only testing facility in that area, besides the public one, you know, tells her no that I'm not going to give you a COVID test because you've been spreading all this misinformation and making comment about COVID and making my life a freaking disaster. So, no, I'm not going to give you a COVID test. So it was a really, a bit of Carla that came back to Candace Owens. And I hope that it continues to drip. And I hope that she, she breached what she sews. She's not a decent human being that would use her blackness as a way to you know insult her own people. But I digress.
No, that's fine. I, you know, I went and I actually, I didn't know about the place it's story. I just looked up that looked up, look that up while you were talking about it. So I didn't know that part, but I did know about the COVID test and about her being denied for the rapid test by that private clinic. And I saw where she was making a storm about it on Twitter with all kinds of follow-up and talk about how she's going to sue and all this stuff, and just making a big stink about that as well as
'Cause she said that that lady had received some type of public funding. So she was supposed to help her. And that was a lie that was proved to be a lie. I looked it up myself, that particular company has not received any type of public funding that is a private business, and they have a right to refuse service if they want to, for whatever reason they want to. So if you want to waste their money spending suing this lady for absolutely nothing, then you go by the hand and I hope that she sues you back and make you pay her, pay her legal fees.
Well, we wonder how that's gonna play out. Who knows. And the thing is we will never actually get the resolution of this. That's one thing I kind of want to wrap up with this when it comes to news, it is so hard to actually get the full story because you'll, you'll get this initial breaking news part of a story, but then what happens two weeks later when somebody says, you know, and I guess we'll see what happens, but then we never see what happens. But I have noticed, I have noticed that you sometimes will circle back and you'll be like, Hey, here's an update to this or an update to that. And if we don't have people doing that, we'll never know unless we go search in ourselves and who really does that
Now nobody does. And it's a lot of things get lost in the sauce. I actually, you know, that we talked about that. I actually looked up what was going on with the case with a frumpy dump in Georgia, you know, the case with Fanny, where he called and called. And they assembled the grand jury where he called down there was talking to Brad, ransonburger about changing the vote, finding votes or whatever. I actually looked into that just this weekend, because I was wondering like, what in the heck is going on with that case? So there's not been any movement, but I did look into it so often, like update. If I see something that that's going on that, especially if it caught a lot of interests, I will double back and talk about it again, because it's very important to kind of give people, you know, a conclusion that whatever it is that we were working on, it worked or didn't work, or we got to try again or whatever's going on. So that's very important.
It is important. And just to give you an example of what what's important, think about the fact that Hillary Clinton was blamed for so long on Bengazi, but then nobody realizes a Republican spent $7 million over two years investigating it to come to the conclusion that the military messed that up.
Right? Absolutely. Absolutely. And you know, she never even got her vindication for that. Nobody even really talks about that. That was gone. And that was lost in the sauces. It's consciously, likes to say.
Yeah, exactly. Well, anything else you want to share before we go?
