JESSE WATTERS (HOST): I have some real news and I can't believe I'm actually saying this, Candace, but Disney is totally changing Minnie Mouse. Disney is putting Minnie Mouse in a pantsuit. That's right. They're getting rid of the skirt and this is Disney Paris or something like that. And I thought, who better to ask about this than Candace Owens. Your reaction? Why are they doing this?

CANDACE OWENS (GUEST): Oh, I'm just so glad. I'm so glad they're doing this. Let me just tell you, Jesse. It goes back to, like when they did this to the M&M's and now they're making her more masculine and I'm glad that they're now saying -- realizing that this needs to be addressed. You know, all of us were traumatized when we saw Minnie Mouse and she was looking like a female as we were growing up.

I mean, look, this is why people don't take these people seriously. They're taking all of these things that nobody was offended by and feel like they have to get rid of them and destroy them because they're bored. You know, they're absolutely bored. They're trying to destroy fabrics of our society, pretending that there's issues. So everybody looks over here, look at Minnie Mouse. Don't look at inflation, Jesse, look at Minnie Mouse. The world is going forward because we've got her in a pantsuit. Never mind, that you can't get anything at the grocery store and you can't buy a piece of bacon unless you've got $30 in your pocket. At least, we're addressing the real problem, which is Minnie Mouse.

WATTERS: That's right. That's right. They're bored out of their minds and they're just making it all uncomfortable for the rest of us.
