A lot of things about the former Bruce Jenner may be fake, but not her conservative-leaning political views. She is a 100%, dyed-in-the-wool Republican. And as a true Republican, she is 100% a hypocrite.
Speaking about marriage equality to Ellen DeGeneres, Jenner admits, “I was not for it. I’m a traditionalist.” In an interview that will air this coming Tuesday, Jenner explains, “But as time has gone on, I think, like a lot of people on the issue, I’ve really changed my thinking.”
The hallmark of conservative Republicanism is the total lack of empathy. Republican minds only change when an issue personally affects them. They will abandon a firmly held belief when it is in their self-interest to do so.
Another trait of right-wing Republicans is their lack of appreciation for the word “irony.” Caitlyn Jenner is a traditionalist? I dare say there is nothing remotely traditional about her. That she could still think of herself as a Republican is mind-boggling. A party that can’t see beyond black and white, both literally and figuratively, will never accept such a person as one of their own. How rich!
No one really knows if the person who has been married to three different women is still interested in women; whether this ongoing sexual preference has brought about the change in her thinking on “traditional marriage.” In her interview with DeGeneres, Jenner admits she is looking to find love again but was coy on whether that love will come from a woman or a man. What a tease! Keep watching this most fascinating transgender Republican, folks. Lets hear it for ratings!
