Bruce Jenner, a former Olympian and reality TV star who now identifies as a woman and goes by the name “Caitlyn,” has been a longtime Republican. Through his transition to living life as a female, many have wondered how Jenner would approach his Republican politics as takes a noticeably un-conservative position with how he chooses to live his life.
Many wondered if his recent desire to live life with the outward appearance of a woman would turn him from conservative politics.
Evidently, Jenner is as big a conservative as always as the former Olympian has voiced his support for constitutional conservative candidate Senator Ted Cruz.
In an interview with The Advocate, a magazine dedicated to homosexual and transgender issues, Jenner said, “I like Ted Cruz” and explained,
“I think he’s very conservative, and a great constitutionalist, and a very articulate man.”
He also hedged and noted, “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.”
Jenner admitted that the support would strike people as odd.
“I get it. The Democrats are better when it comes to these types of social issues. I understand that,” he said. He countered, “Number one, 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 maintained that the staunchly-conservative presidential candidate would need better outreach for transgender people and offered to be a “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.’”
Yes… because in this scenario, the fiercely-intelligent presidential candidate calling for a return to traditional values and common sense is the one that needs to adjust in his thinking, not the confused Botoxed man in a dress…
