Have you ever thought that the best place to get advice on who to vote for would be a celebrity? Then Caitlyn Jenner’s thoughts on Hillary Clinton, and the idea that Jenner believes Clinton is anti-female would be a perfect match. The star of E!’s I Am Cait is not mincing words when she speaks out against Hillary Clinton, and why she won’t be voting for her.
The Huffington Post says the Caitlyn Jenner’s Conservative political beliefs are in stark contrast to those of Hillary Clinton’s, and Jenner is not shy about saying what she really thinks on Season 2 of I Am Cait. Jenner is clear in that she believes that Hillary Clinton doesn’t care about women, but only cares about herself. When it comes down to it, Caitlyn Jenner believes that a female president should care about women’s issues.
“Although she won’t be — she couldn’t care less about women.”
But being transgender and a Republican is not being accepted in the trans community. Jenner believes that the Democratic Party is a better fit for the transgender community, but it just doesn’t jibe with her conservative core.
MSNBC is reporting that Caitlyn Jenner believes that women need a candidate who is on their side, and Hillary Clinton isn’t that person. But the LGBT community is puzzled by Jenner’s allegiance to the Republican Party, except now it just seems like an aversion to Hillary Clinton.
Oddly enough, Jenner seems to have a loyalty to Ted Cruz, who has made it quite clear what he thinks of transgender issues, and people have not had to read between the lines.
“You know, the funny thing is, my 5-year-old knows there’s a difference between boys and girls,” Cruz said on a conservative radio show last November. “And yet modern leftists can’t figure that out.”
In 2014, The Advocate named Ted Cruz the “Phobie” of the year for his staunch views on same-sex marriage. When Caitlyn Jenner was asked if all those years of white male privilege couldn’t be wiped away, she admitted that she has been lucky, but that a Hillary Clinton presidency is not the right way to improve anything for everybody.
Cosmopolitan believes that I Am Cait could take on some new viewers who want to see the now Caitlyn Jenner arguing on behalf of the Republican Party and calling out the female candidate, Hillary Clinton. Caitlyn Jenner firmly believes that Hillary Clinton is all about Hillary, and that running under the umbrella that she is female is merely convenient to get what she wants.
And it should be interesting for the LGBT community to hear Caitlyn Jenner say that there are many more important issues than trans issues, and the Republican Party knows that. And for a ratings bonanza, later in the season, Caitlyn Jenner and Hillary Clinton will meet on I Am Cait. Should be very interesting.
But Salon said that Caitlyn Jenner finds it ironic that for some reason, sharing her disapproval for Hillary Clinton has brought her a world of criticism, and she believes that regardless of living as a man or a woman, she could not change her core beliefs, and she also couldn’t vote for Hillary Clinton. She also believes that choice means being able to choose the candidate that you think would be best for the country.
“I have gotten more flak for being a conservative Republican than I have for being trans,” Jenner said recently. “Just because you change gender doesn’t mean you change your core beliefs.”
Life is full of ironies, and Caitlyn Jenner continues to to show that she is quite the eclectic mix.
Do you think it is unusual that Caitlyn Jenner would prefer Ted Cruz to Hillary Clinton?
