Caitlyn Jenner Is No Fan of Hillary Clinton
We already know that former Olympian and current transgender reality star Caitlyn Jenner is a supporter of anti-LGBT GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz. Now, thanks to the second-season premiere of I Am Cait, it's also confirmed that Jenner is no fan of Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton.
"If we’re unfortunate enough to get Hillary as our next president, we need her on our side," Jenner told her friends during an on-air political discussion. "Although she won’t be … she couldn’t care less about women. She only cares about herself."
Unlike her Republican opponents, Clinton has loudly championed trans rights.
On I Am Cait, Jennifer Finney Boylan, who's on a road trip with Jenner and other activists to promote trans rights, quizzed Jenner on which Republican would help the cause.
"All of 'em. ... None of the Republicans [say], 'Oh, I hate trans people' or 'I hate gays.' Nothing like that," Jenner said. "They do more, 'I want a thriving economy so every trans person has a job.'"
Jenner's friends, including actress Candis Cayne, appeared visibly flummoxed and annoyed.
Later, Boylan discussed the failure of Houston's equal rights ordinance, which was billed as the "bathroom bill," with Republican leaders stoking fears of "men in women's restrooms." Jenner again defended Republicans and took umbrage at Boylan's assertion that the GOP uses anti-LGBT fearmongering to get votes. Watch below.
"I don’t feel like they’re out to get us," Jenner said. "Every conservative guy out there believes in everybody’s rights."
