Olympic medalist turned transgender activist "Caitlyn."
On Friday's The Beat with Ari Melber -- a relatively new MSNBC show that recently replaced Greta Van Susteren's For the Record program -- host Melber not surprisingly assembled a panel of lefties to discuss the week's news for the show's regular "Fall Back" segment. Former Ebony editor-in-chief Amy DuBois Barnett took aim at Caitlyn Jenner because the transgender Republican was recently seen wearing a pro-Donald Trump hat even after Trump's announced ban on transgenders in the military. Inserting race into the conversation, DuBois griped Jenner is "flaunting her residual white male privilege."
The June 12th episode of VH-1’s Daytime Divas, titled “Coma Bump,” took a perverse twist with a storyline about the Christian host, Heather, and her husband, Andrew. As noted in last week’s pilot episode, the character is portrayed as a less than perfect Christian, but the writers took it to a whole new level this week.
Former Olympian and transgender activist Caitlyn Jenner was on The View Wednesday to talk about their new book and how they felt about Donald Trump. While criticizing Trump’s record on transgender issues, Jenner said they still identified as a conservative for issues like national security. Jenner’s answer prompted one host to excitedly ask Jenner to run for political office.
Caitlyn Jenner might be a Republican, but the transgender icon is certainly moving leftward on the political spectrum. In clips from a 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer that will air tonight, the former Olympian dished about a new memoir, shifting views on gay marriage and a golf invite from Donald Trump. Although still identifying with the Republican Party, Jenner articulated some concerns.
A lean compromise may be better than a fat lawsuit, but as NC Gov. Roy Cooper discovered today, it tends to alienate both sides. On the afternoon of March 30, state legislators rushed to repeal HB2 – North Carolina’s controversial law requiring students and government workers to use restrooms that correspond to their biological sex. An NCAA ultimatum was the impetus.
In sectors of society known for their distinctive liberal bent – such as Silicon Valley and the LGBT community – Trump supporters inexplicably throw a wrench in the works. Alienated and reviled, these folks test the professed tolerance of their liberal compatriots.
Bill Simmons welcomed Caitlyn Jenner to the set of his HBO show, Any Given Wednesday, on Wednesday night.
If you ever wondered why Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, ISIS, Al Qaeda, and the Taliban all believe that they can collectively, or individually, kick our butt…this might explain it.
In 2013, NPR host Rachel Martin spent eight minutes of taxpayer-subsidized air time on the last Sunday before Christmas promoting the atheist band Bad Religion wrecking Christmas songs and found no time to question if it offended.
NPR devoted almost 12 minutes to promoting atheist actor/writer Ricky Gervais on the morning of May 1. Weekend Edition Sunday anchor Rachel Martin found a piety worth defending. She hounded Gervais about being insensitive to Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner and the “trans community.” Gervais surely raised some liberal eyebrows for testily responding “I hope we’re all grown-ups” when it comes to Jenner humor.
The first transgender kiss in the history of I Am Cait went down on Sunday night’s show, titled ‘Houston We Have a Problem.’ And…it was every bit as awful as you would expect.
On Friday's At This Hour with Berman and Bolduan, CNN co-hosts John Berman and Kate Bolduan repeatedly pressed Ted Cruz campaign national chairman Chad Sweet about whether Senator Cruz believes transgender men are actually "men pretending to be women" as the two began the segment focusing on a Cruz campaign ad attacking Donald Trump over the North Carolina bathroom bill.
Because this series is running out of ways to completely gross out and mortify what few, very few, remaining viewers they have left, this week’s showing of I Am Cait, titled ‘Kiss and Make Up,’ decided to go down the road of transgender adoption.
