Caitlyn Jenner is one of the more outspoken Republicans in Hollywood.
But most Internet users agree that her political views don’t give the reality star license to say something as inappropriate as she said on Friday night.
Jenner was taking part in a discussion at the College Republican National Committee’s convention when she was asked for her thoughts on the violent attack on a GOP baseball practice earlier in the week.
On the morning of June 14, a gunman opened fire on various Republicans and their staff members, seriously wounding Congressman Steve Scalise and injuring three others.
The shoot was killed by Capitol Police and later identified as James T. Hodgkinson, an extreme member of the Democratic Party who had volunteered for the Bernie Sanders Presidential campaign last year.
“Nobody deserves what happened out there. There’s no justification,” Jenner said to open his remarks, which were shared on Facebook yesterday.
Added the former Olympic Gold Medalist, perhaps hinting that he’d favor stricter gun control laws:
“There are crazy people. We have to minimize that type of stuff… As far as the people that were injured, it’s an absolute shame. You just want them to recover.”
What feud? Caitlyn Jenner spent Father’s Day with daughters Kendall and Kylie in Los Angeles.
If Jenner had stopped there, she’d have been fine.
Everyone on both sides of the political aisle would have nodded in agreement.
But then Caitlyn tried to make a joke.
“Fortunately the guy was a really bad shot,” she quipped. “Liberals can’t even shoot straight.”
And this is where Caitlyn planted her high-heeled foot directly into her mouth.
Yes, Hodgkinson was a Liberal.
But his horrible actions didn’t speak for all Liberals. Or most Liberals. Or even the smallest minority of Liberals.
The attack against these politicians has been denounced by every prominent Democrat who has issued a statement on it.
Making it sound as if all Liberals “can’t shoot” implies that all Liberals want to shoot, which is simply stoking the already-scorching flames of partisan divide.
This was one deranged individual committing a heinous attack; it signified nothing about either political party,
Over the course of the dinner on Friday, Jenner spoke on a variety of topics, from Kanye West to the Paris climate agreement.
The former track and field legend said the latter, which President Donald Trump is pulling American out of, is “just a way for the rest of the world to kind of ruin us economically.”
There’s no proof whatsoever to back up that statement, but Jenner’s loved ones would say she has a problem with the truth in general these days.
Over the final few episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 13, Kim and her family members slammed Caitlyn for lying.
They took serious issues with things she wrote in her memoir about her marriage and her time on the show and it’s unlikely we’ll see her on E! ever again.
