In an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity, Owens said Obama's recent claims about racism in the Republican party were "absolutely despicable" because white Americans were his voters and "gave him literally everything he has".
She said: "The language that he's using, the rhetoric that is coming out of former Barack Obama's mouth is nothing short of absolutely despicable in my opinion.
"This is a man who ran on the American dream. Everyone remembers where they were the night Barack Obama won.
"There was a kinetic energy on the ground. It felt like we finally had arrived at a place in this country where we could put the past on the past.
"He ran on that image. He didn't run on race, he didn't run on denigrating half of Americans.
"He is the first president to have ever sat in the White House and come out of the White House hating America and that is what I believe about Barack Obama today."
Owens was speaking in reaction to Obama claiming in his upcoming memoir "A Promised Land" that Republicans were paranoid and xenophobic.

In an interview with 60 Minutes, the ex-presidentslammed Trump for "delegitimizing democracy" and placing the country on a "dangerous path".
He said: "They appear to be motivated, in part, because the president doesn't like to lose, and never admits loss.
"I'm more troubled by the fact that other Republican officials who clearly know better are going along with this, are humoring him in this fashion."
The 44th president said: "It is one more step in delegitimizing, not just the incoming Biden administration, but democracy generally."
"And that's a dangerous path."
Obama’s comments, released in a preview on Thursday, come as the president continues to claim that Biden and Democrats stole the election from him.
Separately on Thursday, a coalition of federal and state cybersecurity experts said there is no evidence that votes were compromised in last week’s election.
"The November 3rd election was the most secure in American history. Right now, across the country, election officials are reviewing and double checking the entire election process prior to finalizing the result," the statement from the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency read.
Biden has been declared the president-elect, and as of Thursday evening, had over five million votes more than Trump in the popular vote from Americans.
