Caitlyn Jenner Argues Over Ted Cruz With Transgender Friends (VIDEO)
Caitlyn Jenner argues over Ted Cruz with her transgender friends in a new clip from the “I Am Cait” season finale. Watch below.
As Gossip Cop has reported, the last episode of season 2 will air this Sunday. A new preview showcases a heated exchange that was filmed last fall as debate raged over an anti-LGBT ordinance in Houston. As much of the season has dealt with Jenner’s conservative views, the clip begins with Jenny Boylan saying in a confessional, “Cait has a disconnect. She does not accept that there’s any element in the Republican party or the conservative movement that has ever been against LGBT people. That stops today.”
After being shown a news report in which Cruz was quoted as advocating for the ordinance, Jenner tells her pals, “I think he’s totally just misinformed.” But that acknowledgement isn’t enough for the group. Boylan tells her, “Ted Cruz said that. Your people. Republicans. They don’t like us.”
“They’re not my people if they’re against this issue,” Jenner fires back. “So big deal. I’m not like cheering them on.” But an angry Kate Bornstein exclaims, “You are! You’re voting for Ted Cruz! You’re cheering him on!”
Jenner attempts to defend herself, saying she believes Cruz “can take care of the big issues,” but Bornstein insists, “It’s not either or. You can’t say you’re not cheering people on and then say ”Ted Cruz,’ who uses ‘trans’ as a slur any chance he gets.”
Earlier this year, Jenner again caused waves when she said in an interview that she’d like to be Cruz’s “trans ambassador,” should he be elected president. She later clarified, “I never said that I endorsed Ted Cruz. I said I liked him. He is a constitutionalist, and I think we have to get our country back to something like that. Now, out of all the candidates, I also feel that, as far as the LGBT community, he would probably be the worst — and need the most help.”
