The 'I Am Cait' star went on to call Hillary Clinton a 'liar' in sneak peek at latest episode
Caitlyn Jenner doesn’t think that her “views have changed politically since transitioning” — and in this preview for Sunday’s I Am Cait, her friends are pushing back.
When Chandi Moore asks Jenner about her opinions on Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, Jenner says that she isn’t a big fan of his “macho attitude.”
“It doesn’t mean he wouldn’t be good for women’s issues,” Jenner adds. “I think he would be very good for women’s issues.”
“Kill me now,” responds Jenny Boylan.
Asked to choose between Trump and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, Jenner asserts that she would never vote for Clinton, declaring, “If Hillary becomes President, the country is over.”
Clinton has been criticized for being slow to support LGBT rights, a critique she acknowledged during an October appearance on Saturday Night Live. In a speech made that same month to members of the Human Rights Campaign, Clinton said, “Transgender people are valued, they are loved, they are us.”
As for the Republican candidate, Trump commented on Jenner in an August interview with The Hollywood Reporter, saying, “I’m not surprised at the ratings [of I Am Cait, which fell week to week after the series’ debut]. I just think it wouldn’t interest you. I knew him a little bit when Bruce was a great athlete. He was one of the best-looking people you’ll ever see.”
The Miss USA Organization, formerly co-owned by Trump, did invite Jenner to serve as a judge at the 2015 pageant, saying in a statement, “The organization would indeed love to have her and are reaching out to make an offer.” Jenner did not participate. The pageant was pulled by networks and marred by an exodus of hosts and judges in the wake of Trump’s comments on immigration.
Trump’s Miss Universe Organization has allowed transgender contestants since 2012, when contestant Jenna Talackova was initially disqualified from the Miss Universe Canada pageant. After Talackova and lawyer Gloria Allred challenged her dismissal, the organization ended its ban on transgender competitors.
“It was obvious to us that she was entitled to compete,” Trump said on 20/20, though he went on to comment that “the first letters” of Talackova’s name bore a phonetic resemblance to the word “genital.”
“Could there be an ulterior motive?” Trump asked.
