Yesterday, April 23, 2021, Caitlyn Jenner has announced her candidacy for governor of California because they expect the current Governor Gavin Newsom to be recalled, and Democrats are losing their mind because she is running as a Republican. Enough signatures have been collected and a special election for governor could happen in 90-120 days, though it has not yet been confirmed. Some other announced candidates to run for the office are former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer (R), 2018 gubernatorial candidate John Cox (R), and former state Sen. John Moorlach (R).
Democrats and some conservatives are piling on Twitter getting the hashtag #SayNoToJenner trending. However, there are no cogent arguments being made on Jenner’s policies, just making fun of her being trans and a Republican. Aren’t Democrats supposed to be the tolerant ones and get angry when others make fun of transgendered?
Since Jenner’s announcement this past week, various Democrats are running for cover as they constantly call her a “he” and don’t know how to handle a transgender Republican who was so famous as a man. This past week, Joy Behar repeatedly used the wrong pronouns for Jenner, using “he” and “his” when she is a she, blaming it on not getting enough coffee. Jenner was kind in his response, stating on Twitter, “Don’t sweat it, @JoyVBehar. I’m not about cancel culture. I know where your heart is. California has bigger issues than pronouns.”
In her press release yesterday, Jenner stated, “California has been my home for nearly 50 years. I came here because I knew that anyone, regardless of their background or station in life, could turn their dreams into reality. But for the past decade, we have seen the glimmer of the Golden State reduced by one-party rule that places politics over progress and special interests over people. Sacramento needs an honest leader with a clear vision.”
