Once upon a time, Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner announced he was a transgender and then was celebrated and called brave by many people.
In fact, Jenner stood on stage at the ESPYS and accepted the Arthur Ashe Courage Award while receiving a standing ovation by liberal ESPN personalities, and forced enthusiasm from athletes like Peyton Manning who glaringly did not want to applaud him.
Then, hilariously, these same liberal elites who praised him for his “courage” found out that Jenner was a Republican and initially a Donald Trump supporter – so they ignored him and intentionally forgot about him.
And now Jenner is seriously considering something that will make many furious if he follows through.
“Caitlyn Jenner will spend ‘the next year or two’ considering a run for political office.
The 67-year-old reality TV star, formerly known as Bruce, shared the revelation Tuesday night at the ‘Imagining Men & Women: Caitlyn Jenner on Transgender Identity and Courage’ event in New York City.
While a promoting a new memoir, Secrets of My Life, Jenner reiterated comments from an earlier interview with Diane Sawyer, in which the former Olympic gold medalist dismissed President Donald Trump and the Republican Party and cautioned them against violating the rights of transgender people.
‘My loyalties are not with the Republican Party. My loyalties are not with Donald Trump. I’ll come after him and come after Republicans when they start screwing up my community,’ Jenner said at Tuesday’s event.
‘And I got a voice and they’d better listen, because I will come after them.’”
Jenner would be the first transgender ever elected to office.
But it’s odd that Jenner has completely done a 180 simply because the Trump administration hasn’t yet addressed any specific issues close to him. After all, it’s only been 100 days.
However, there’s a larger issue here, and it’s that people believe they are suddenly qualified for politics because they live in the public eye.
Kanye West, Jenner’s step-son, threatened to run for President in 2020. Superstar actress Scarlett Johansson believes she’s qualified for politics as well. It’s silly.
But Jenner did consider it might be more effective to be an activist outside of government.
“’Or would I be better working from the inside,’ Jenner said.
‘If that is the case … I would seriously look at a run. It just depends where I could be more effective.’
In a primetime interview Monday with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, Jenner ripped Trump’s attorney general Jeff Sessions and Army Secretary nominee Tennessee State Sen. Mark Green.
‘Jeff Sessions has been very, kind of, anti-LGBT.
I know on March 10th, there was a letter sent to him to try to prosecute the murderers of these trans women as hate crimes, which has been done in the past, and he never even responded to the letter. Which is extremely disappointing to me,’ Jenner said.
‘Right now, we’ve got, — that I’m really concerned with, kind of the next move for the Trump administration is Mark Green, who’s a Republican from Tennessee, senator, and he’s up for secretary of the Army,’ Jenner continued.
‘And this guy has come out with some of the most anti-LGBT statements ever.’
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star voted for Trump, but said the president has ‘kind of disappointed me in the first 100 days on those issues.’”
That’s a selfish way of looking at it.
So Sessions didn’t respond to a letter? Maybe President Trump and his administration have more important issues plaguing our country right now left behind by the previous administration. Get in line Caitlyn.
