Candace Owens Expels Lia Thomas from ‘The View’ Set with a Message: ‘Take Your Wokeness With You’


In a surprising turn of events that left “The View” audience both perplexed and entertained, Candace Owens, the show’s latest co-host succeeding Whoopi Goldberg, took a bold stance against what she termed “extreme wokeness” by theatrically removing Lia Thomas, the transgender swimmer, from the set. The episode, already labeled a blend of Shakespearean drama and a Saturday Night Live skit by critics, commenced innocently. Owens, known for her conservative viewpoints and straightforward approach, began the show with her characteristic sharp wit and controversial opinions.

However, the atmosphere quickly shifted when Lia Thomas, invited as a guest to discuss her journey as a transgender athlete, took the stage. As Thomas began sharing her story, Owens interrupted, revealing a pool noodle she had apparently concealed under the desk. “This is a metaphor for the absurdity we’re swimming in!” Owens declared, waving the noodle with the flair of a seasoned matador. The audience, uncertain whether to laugh or gasp, settled for a confused murmur.

Thomas, taken aback by the unexpected prop and Owens’ fiery demeanor, attempted to redirect the conversation to her experiences and challenges. Nevertheless, Owens, now standing on her chair for dramatic effect, declared, “This set is no place for wokeness! Take your pool noodle and your agenda, and swim out of here!”

With a flourish, Owens ‘escorted’ Thomas off the set, nudging her with the pool noodle as if guiding a ship out of harbor. The audience, now realizing the theatricality of the situation, erupted into a mix of cheers, boos, and laughter.

Backstage, producers reportedly scrambled, torn between the potential for high ratings and the risk of a public relations disaster. “Do we let her continue? Is this good television or a lawsuit waiting to happen?” one anonymous producer was overheard saying.


Meanwhile, on social media, the incident ignited a wildfire of reactions. Hashtags like #PoolNoodlePolitics and #TheViewUnviewed trended globally, and memes featuring Owens and her noodle flooded Twitter and Instagram.

Amidst the chaos, satirists and commentators reveled in the moment. “Candace Owens just redefined ‘poolside politics,'” quipped one late-night host. Another joked, “Who needs a debate when you have a pool noodle? It’s both soft and hard-hitting.”

In a surprising turn, Lia Thomas, speaking to reporters after the incident, expressed no hard feelings. “It was unexpected, but in a way, it’s opened up more conversations. Plus, I never thought I’d be part of a viral meme,” she said with a smile.

The episode concluded with Owens returning to her seat, pool noodle in hand, prepared to tackle the next topic with her characteristic zeal. “That’s enough drama for one day,” she quipped, “Let’s talk about something less controversial, like pineapple on pizza.”

As the credits rolled, viewers were left to contemplate the surreal spectacle they had just witnessed. Was it a poignant critique of political discourse, a masterful piece of performance art, or just another day in the unpredictable world of live television?

One thing was certain: “The View” had never been viewed quite like this before.
