At the RNC convention on Wednesday, former Olympian and transgender advocate Bruce Jenner, who now goes by Caitlyn, discussed a staunch alignment with the GOP, despite concerns about the party’s stance on LGBT issues.
The interview was covered by CNBC and sponsored by the American Unity Fund, a group which is “dedicated to advancing the cause of freedom for LGBT Americans by making the conservative case that freedom truly means freedom for everyone.”
Wearing a low cut blouse that revealed new feminine décolletage, Jenner declared to the audience: "It was easy to come out as trans. It was harder to come out as a Republican." (Surely this says something about where the real hate lies?) Despite his differences with the GOP, Jenner expressed the view that “our best hope to get back to a constitutional government with 18 enumerated powers is the Republican Party.”
When North Carolina’s bathroom bill came up, Jenner called the State of North Carolina a “bully” which refused to let transgender students “live [their] authentic li[ves],” leading to “even more depression for these kids.”
Jenner also revealed usage of the women’s restroom for one and a half years. Yet, the former olympian assured the women in the audience of powder room etiquette. "And I just want you to know, girls, that I follow all the rules, I've never flushed a feminine product down a toilet." (One wonders what Jenner would be doing with such products in the first place, but that shall remain unanswered.)
After listing three Republican congressman who had gotten into trouble for “lewd behavior” in the men’s room, Jenner proffered: “Maybe what we should do is ban Republican representatives at a state level from being in the men’s room.”
I’m sure the libs would love that.
