Caitlyn Jenner published a video on Facebook Wednesday showing her using the bathroom at a Trump Hotel in New York City, aimed at confronting Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz for his transphobia.
In the video titled "Bathroom Break," Jenner walks down Central Park West where the Trump Hotel is located. She says:
"Oh my god, a trans woman in New York. I have to take a pee. Oh my God, a Trump International Hotel! I love this! Okay, last week Donald Trump said I can take a pee anywhere in a Trump facility, so I'm gonna go take a pee in the ladies room."
Jenner asks for the women's restroom, uses it, and comes back out, saying, "Thank you Donald, I really appreciate it. And by the way Ted, nobody got molested." Beneath the video, she uses the hashtags "everyonehastopee" and "flushdiscrimination."
Her video is aimed at Cruz who on April 21, posted an ad on YouTube calling Trump 'one of the PC police' for stating transgender people should use whichever restroom they feel is appropriate. Trump has since said that though he disagrees with anti-LGBT laws such as those passed in North Carolina, he would not overturn them.
In Cruz's attack ad, he implies transgender women are men "pretending" to be women and plays upon the debunked claim that transgender people are really "predators" seeking to assault women and children in public restrooms. This scare tactic was used in his home state of Texas to defeat Houston's equal rights ordinance known as HERO.
In a previous interview with The Advocate, Jenner expressed support for Cruz and said she would like to be his "transgender ambassador."
