Caitlyn Jenner Likes Ted Cruz, Is An Asshole
If you somehow haven’t heard by now, Caitlyn Jenner all but endorsed presidential candidate/warm jar of mayonnaise disguising itself as a human Ted Cruz yesterday in an interview with The Advocate. So let’s get that out of the way, so I can tell you what a goddamn asshole Caitlyn Jenner is and how it’s not “reductive” to call her one for voting Republican.
“I like Ted Cruz,” she declares. “I think he’s very conservative and a great constitutionalist and a very articulate man. I haven’t endorsed him or anything like that. But I also think, he’s an evangelical Christian, and probably one of the worst ones when it comes to trans issues.”
“I get it. The Democrats are better when it comes to these types of social issues. I understand that.” So why support Republicans? “Number 1, if we don’t have a country, we don’t have trans issues. We need jobs. We need a vibrant economy. I want every trans person to have a job. With $19 trillion in debt and it keeps going up, we’re spending money we don’t have. Eventually, it’s going to end. And I don’t want to see that. Socialism did not build this country. Capitalism did. Free enterprise. The people built it. And they need to be given the opportunity to build it back up.”
Jenner reveals she met Cruz prior to her transition, more than a year ago, “and he was very nice.”
“Wouldn’t it be great, let’s say he goes on to be president,” she tells me in relating a conversation on the tour bus. “And I have all my girls on a trans issues board to advise him on making decisions when it comes to trans issues. Isn’t that a good idea?”
“You’re going to be Ted Cruz’s trans ambassador?” I respond.
“Yes, trans ambassador to the president of the United States, so we can say, ‘Ted, love what you’re doing but here’s what’s going on.’”
Okay, first off, Caitlyn Jenner admits it herself: Ted Cruz is the evangelical darling, and if someone put a gun to his head and made him choose between an endorsement from the face of transgender America or Barack Obama, he’d take Barack Obama without blinking even though these people literally believe the current President of the United States is the actual Antichrist. Which only further proves my point, and it’s this:
Caitlyn Jenner doesn’t give a fuck about transgender people.
She can say all she wants about finding transgender people jobs and helping Ted Cruz make decisions on trans issues, but she doesn’t give a fuck about any of that. Caitlyn Jenner cares about the tax rate Caitlyn Jenner is paying and how much money that’s going to leave in Caitlyn Jenner’s bank account that’s already full of Caitlyn Jenner’s millions. That’s it. Bottom line. Which is why she’s endorsing the literal worst candidate on transgender issues in a party that’s currently shitting itself over its lead candidate letting everyone know they’ve been a bigoted gaggle of racists this whole time. But, really, who needs basic human rights if it raises the capital gains tax? Let’s be honest.
