Caitlyn Jenner, who currently stars in the reality television series I Am Cait said that she wasn?t supporting Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
According to Mass Live, the retired Olympic gold medal-winning decathlete told students at the University of Pennsylvania that she had received ?more flak for being a conservative Republican? than she had ?for being trans.”
In the season-two premiere of Jenner?s docu-series on Sunday night, Jenner, a Republican, voiced her opinion about the conservative party and claimed that it did not support the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) issues.
The former Olympian refused to stop at the Democratic debate during a bus trip with a group of transgender women. Jenner said, “It’s the last place I want to be. But I’m open. We need both sides and if we’re unfortunate enough get Hillary as our next president, we need her on our side. Although she won’t be ? she couldn’t care less about women. She cares about herself.”
A trans activist and writer Jennifer Finney Boylan happened to ask a question to Jenner about her choice for a potential Republican Presidential candidate who would support the ?transgender? folks, reported Gawker. Jenner answered that all of the candidates appeared fine to her. ?None of the Republicans are ?I hate trans people? or ?I hate gays,’? she said. ?They do nothing of that. I want a driving economy so every trans person has a job,? she added.
In Jenner?s interview with The Advocate, she voiced her opinion about Ted Cruz. She disclosed of having met him more than a year ago before her transition and said that ?he was very nice.? She also added that if he becomes the president, she would like to be Cruz?s ?trans ambassador.?
Meanwhile, during the premiere of I Am Cait, the entire crew happened to meet Jenner?s daughters Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner for the first time. Chandi (who was accidentally left behind and got locked on the bus) praised the sisters for their support to Jenner and called them ?real troopers,? according to E! Online.
Kendall responded, “I think she got pretty lucky. We’re all very open, accepting, nonjudgmental people?like, our whole family.”
