Caitlyn Jenner has told a British chat show that she’s so very upset with Trump, she’s considering a run for Congress. As a Republican, of course. The BBC reports:
The ex-Olympic athlete, who changed her name and transitioned to living as a woman aged 65, said Mr Trump was being “influenced by people around him”. Jenner said her life was “much simpler” now she was living openly as a woman.
She told the programme she was now considering going into politics to promote LGBT issues. “I do a lot of political stuff, but it is mostly all behind the scenes,” she said.
Asked if she would stand for election, she added: “I have been asked that question quite a bit, to be honest with you – over the next year I’m looking into it. I want to know where can I do a better job for my community, in bringing the Republican Party around when it comes to all LGBT issues.”
“Is it from the outside? Kind of working on the outside and the perimeter and working with everybody to get the Republicans to change their thinking? Or is it better off being on the inside and actually running for a Congress or Senate seat? Can I do more good there? And those are the things that I am evaluating.”
