Turning Point USA Communications Director Candace Owens blasted Hillary Clinton for comments the former secretary of state made regarding President Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.

Clinton discussed Kavanaugh's nomination Friday during a teacher's union conference in Pittsburgh, and called it an obvious attempt to reverse decades of progress.

“You know, I used to worry that they wanted to turn the clock back to the 1950s. Now I worry they want to turn it back to the 1850s,” Clinton said of Republicans.

Owens said Sunday on "Fox & Friends" that Clinton is "of course" talking about slavery and African-Americans.

Owens added that African-Americans are Clinton's "favorite prop" to use in order to "drum up emotion and illogical fear."

"Fox & Friends" host Pete Hegseth also said on Saturday that Clinton was implying racism in America.

“It's hyperbole that no one can buy,” he said.

Owens said that Clinton loves to “use” the minority community at large.

"This is exactly what she does all the time. ... I find all of this ridiculous, but it's standard for Hillary Clinton," she said.

Clinton didn't win the 2016 presidential election because of her use of minorities in her rhetoric, Owens said, adding that “people are getting tired of this and she just hasn't learned her lesson.”

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) also blasted Clinton's remarks on “Cavuto Live” on Saturday, calling her words “absurd, hyperbolic rhetoric.”
