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 CruzÃ¢â¬â¢s Ã¢â¬Åtrans ambassadorÃ¢â¬Â should he become president. HereÃ¢â¬â¢s the relevant excerpt from Dawn EnnisÃ¢â¬â¢s Jenner profile:
Jenner reveals she met Cruz prior to her transition, more than a year ago, Ã¢â¬Åand he was very nice.Ã¢â¬Â
Ã¢â¬ÅWouldnÃ¢â¬â¢t it be great, letÃ¢â¬â¢s say he goes on to be president,Ã¢â¬Â she tells me in relating a conversation on the tour bus. Ã¢â¬ÅAnd I have all my girls on a trans issues board to advise him on making decisions when it comes to trans issues. IsnÃ¢â¬â¢t that a good idea?Ã¢â¬Â she asked me.
Ã¢â¬ÅYouÃ¢â¬â¢re going to be Ted CruzÃ¢â¬â¢s trans ambassador?Ã¢â¬Â
Ã¢â¬ÅYes, trans ambassador to the president of the United States, so we can say, Ã¢â¬ËTed, love what youÃ¢â¬â¢re doing but hereÃ¢â¬â¢s whatÃ¢â¬â¢s going on.Ã¢â¬â¢Ã¢â¬Â
On yesterdayÃ¢â¬â¢s Today show, Jenner said, Ã¢â¬ÅI 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.Ã¢â¬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?
