CANDACE OWENS (HOST): Let's say we do get dragged into World War III, or if you're wondering where it is that our military stands. Well, the US Navy has platformed a drag queen influencer -- I wish I was kidding. I'm not -- to attract the youth because right now the military is facing a hiring crisis. That makes sense to me, obviously - you are encouraging men to act like women, and I don't think that those men are necessarily going to want to sign up to fight overseas wars. But yes, this is a real headline. There is a drag queen influencer that is trying to engage Gen Z -- sign up for the military because I'm a drag queen or something. Here he, who dresses up like a she, is in his own words.


You know what my first reaction was? I could probably beat that guy up. I just -- I feel like I could beat that guy up. I feel like if you had to put money on a fight between me and that guy that you just saw, you probably would put your money on me. And that should make you very upset because this guy is now recruiting people. Not only is he in the military, he's recruiting other people to be in the military. And that doesn't make me feel secure about the direction of the United States military.
