Who is Caitlyn Jenner supporting for president? The answer may surprise you.
Jenner, who is the world’s first transgender celebrity, recently weighed in on the ongoing presidential race. What is surprising to many is that Jenner puts social issues and matters concerning transgenders on the back burner; emphasizing that economic policies are what voters should be considering.
Jenner’s pick? Ted Cruz, a man who has not be a friend to transgender individuals.
The Advocate writes:
“I like Ted Cruz,” she declares. “I think he’s very conservative and a great constitutionalist and a very articulate man. I haven’t endorsed him or anything like that. But I also think, he’s an evangelical Christian, and probably one of the worst ones when it comes to trans issues.”
“I get it. The Democrats are better when it comes to these types of social issues. I understand that.” So why support Republicans? “Number 1, if we don’t have a country, we don’t have trans issues. 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.”
The logic Jenner provides is inarguable and sound, no matter what your views of gender or social issues. Jenner is making an objective decision to support free enterprise and economic growth over the politics of identity.
Liberals shuddered at learning that the poster person for gender fluidity is in fact a staunch conservative capitalist who supports an evangelical Texan for president.
Hearing a trans person calling Presidential candidate Ted Cruz “very nice” is like hearing a seal wax ecstatic about her new shark buddy.
To most liberals, the politics of victim hood and social justice are prioritized above all else, to grave cost to us all. Jenner deserves applause for standing on principle.
