Fresh off the heels of her crushing defeat in California’s gubernatorial recall election, Caitlyn Jenner is guest-hosting The View today. And this, ladies and gentlemen, is precisely why we can’t have nice things.
The hit morning talk show, is a clear attempt at trolling its own viewers, made the surprise announcement late yesterday, and the response has been, well, shall we have a looksy?
So many amazing people in this country and this is who you pick?

No, Thank You; I’ll watch anything else other than her interview. Her talking points about trans-youth are a clear present Danger to those who want to be accepted, helped, and heard in our LGBTQIA+ community.

You may have found someone even less qualified than @MeghanMcCain. That’s impressive

This morning, Jenner, who hates homeless people, appeared on the show, where she quickly butted heads with the other co-hosts.
During a discussion about whether the current GOP can attract millennial and Gen Z voters, Jenner, who doesn’t believe trans athletes should be allowed to compete in sports, argued that young Americans “want a Republican party that is more inclusive to other people.”
“There’s gotta be a next generation, and I think they’re out there. And I’m hopeful that they’re out there,” she said, adding that, “The media is against [Republicans]. They won’t give the Republicans a fair break.”
That’s when Sunny Hostin interjected: “With Trump as the head of the Republican Party, I think that’s kinda difficult.”
Jenner, who blames the sun for global warming, admitted Trump had “messaging issues”, to which Hostin replied, “He had a big insurrection issue, and a couple of impeachment issues as well.”
Later, Jenner said that she would 100% consider running for office again, saying, “Would I run again? Yes! It really opened my eyes to political life. It opened my eyes.”
Unfortunately, her mind remains closed.
.@Caitlyn_Jenner calls her run for California governor "one of the most rewarding experiences" and says she would run again after the recall failed: "I want to stay involved."
