Republican Bruce Jenner Sort of Endorses TED CRUZ: ‘I Want To Be His Trans Ambassador’
Just shaking my head. I’ve done that so much today, I’m dizzy. Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner has come out and endorsed the candidate he would like to see as president and it is Ted Cruz. I was shocked by that. Of all the candidates, he is the most Christian of the lot. He is not anti-gay, but he is also not an advocate for the gay or transgender movements. Jenner would like to be his trans-ambassador. Not to be rude, but I hope and pray that Cruz does not answer this sort of endorsement. It will open a whole can of worms he does not need right now. I respect that Jenner is in his own way a constitutional conservative, but that discussion is for another day.
From the Daily Mail:
Caitlyn Jenner likes republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz, and would like to be his ‘trans ambassador,’ the transgender icon and former Olympian said in an interview on Wednesday.
‘I like Ted Cruz,’ Jenner told the Advocate. ‘I think he’s very conservative, and a great constitutionalist, and a very articulate man.’
Were Cruz to be elected president, Jenner would like to be appointed ‘trans ambassador to the president of the United States.’
I ask you, could this election cycle possibly get any weirder? I don’t think so. I know that Jenner just landed a major makeup contract and everyone is cooing over him. But every time he speaks, you are reminded that she is a he who has forgotten what is in his sock drawer. Just sayin’. ‘I [would] have all my girls on a trans issues board to advise him on making decisions when it comes to trans issues,’ Jenner mused. ‘Isn’t that a good idea?’ Uh, no… it’s really not. Despite his warm feelings for Cruz, Jenner, 66, didn’t formally endorse the Texas senator for president, saying ‘he’s an evangelical Christian, and probably one of the worst ones when it comes to trans issues.’ While the Democrats are ‘better’ when it comes to social issues, Jenner thinks the GOP fiscal conservatism is more suited to serve transgender Americans. Those two statements are contradictory and confusing just like Jenner is. He did get some things right: ‘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.’ Cruz has questioned transgender rights on several occasions during his campaign for the 2016 GOP nomination and I don’t see that stance changing.
