It sure isn’t easy being Caitlyn Jenner. Aside from having Kanye West as a son-in-law, she has had to endure countless surgeries, make-up sessions, mani-pedis and poor ratings for her own reality show.
Now she must bear an even bigger burden: being a conservative Republican.
As the Daily Caller reports, Speaking to a group of students at the University of Pennsylvania Wednesday, the 66-year-old said he’s constantly criticized for his conservative views.
“I have gotten more flak for being a conservative Republican than I have for being trans,” Jenner said when a student asked why he wasn’t a Democrat.
[Editor’s note: Why does the Daily Caller use the masculine “he” gender? Just curious]It’s the second giant closet out of which Jenner has had to emerge, and it may well be the toughest.
After Jenner told Diane Sawyer that he was, “for all intents and purposes,” a woman in April, he confirmed that he’s been a lifelong conservative.Which she cannot say she’s felt about her gender. Interesting.
In any event Caitlyn, welcome to the fold! We’re glad that’s one thing you’re not interested in changing.
