UGHHHH sometimes I forget that Trans CEO and chairwoman Caitlyn Jenner was once Bruce Jenner, a rich, white Republican man. Because I hear this Republican stuff coming out of her mouth and I think, man, this political skew is not in her best interest.
According to Caitlyn Jenner, Republican candidate (and vehemently anti-trans dude) Ted Cruz is…wait for it: “VERY NICE.”
So NICE, in fact, that Jenner revealed to The Advocate that she wants to be Cruzâ€™s â€œtrans ambassadorâ€ should he become president. Hereâ€™s the relevant excerpt from Dawn Ennisâ€™s Jenner profile:
Jenner reveals she met Cruz prior to her transition, more than a year ago, â€œand he was very nice.â€
â€œWouldnâ€™t it be great, letâ€™s say he goes on to be president,â€ she tells me in relating a conversation on the tour bus. â€œAnd I have all my girls on a trans issues board to advise him on making decisions when it comes to trans issues. Isnâ€™t that a good idea?â€ she asked me.
â€œYouâ€™re going to be Ted Cruzâ€™s trans ambassador?â€
â€œYes, trans ambassador to the president of the United States, so we can say, â€˜Ted, love what youâ€™re doing but hereâ€™s whatâ€™s going on.â€™â€
On yesterdayâ€™s Today show, Jenner said, â€œI sit on the Republican side, and when we do get a candidate, I certainly will talk to them. I admit that the Democrats, as far as trans issues, are better than the Republicans.â€
Ya think, Caitlyn? You feel comfortable admitting dems are better about trans acceptance and support? DUH. Honestly, for being 2015’s Woman and winner of everything, she’s a little short sighted, dont you think?
