Caitlyn Jenner’s Fox News contributor gig is going as horribly as you’d expect

Caitlyn Jenner is finding her footing as Fox News’ newest contributor, and wasting no time alienating herself even further from the LGBTQ community.

“As you might know I am trans, but I’m not a trans activist,” Jenner told host Sean Hannity last week. “That’s just one part of my life. There’s so much more to me.”

She added: “In the midterms coming up, LGBT issues are going to be very big issues and I’m looking forward to covering those, but there’s so much more to me than that.” Among the “so much more to me” category is being a patriot, she noted.

Hannity went on to bring up Florida’s House Bill 1557, which Republican Governor Ron DeSantis recently signed into law, that forbids instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity in kindergarten through third grade. Critics have dubbed it the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, and argue its vague language gives parents the ability to keep any mention of LGBTQ existence out of the classroom.

Hannity said parents should be able to “opt their kids” into “woke classes after school,” as if that’s a thing, but that teachers should focus on “the basics first.”

Jenner agreed. “I’m a common sense person and that’s what you call common sense. I am all for parental rights.”

And yesterday, Jenner appeared on sister station Fox Business, telling host Stuart Varney: “I’m a big supporter of Ron DeSantis and what he’s doing. I’m a parent. I have a very large family, raised a very large family, lotta grandkids. And I have been in control of my children’s destiny and what they’re going to learn in school, not some math teacher teaching my kids about gender identity. I can teach those lessons.”

The comments haven’t gone over well:
