Bill Maher mocks Caitlyn Jenner’s campaign for governor

Comedian Bill Maher blasted Caitlyn Jenner’s bid to oust Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) in the pending California recall election.

During an episode of his HBO show “Real Time” on Friday night, Maher appeared disgruntled over the fact that Jenner would be running as a Republican given the GOP’s stance against transgender ideology.

“How about this for news: Caitlyn Jenner is running for governor. I know you think of her as a reality-show star, but come on, people change,” Maher said. The Daily Beast originally reported on this, condemning Maher for being “transphobic.”

Maher said: “She [Jenner] is trans, rested, and ready. She’s got a great slogan: take the ‘sack’ out of ‘Sacremento.'”

Maher compared Jenner’s position in the Republican Party to Jenner’s role in the Kardashian family: “I love that about her. Wasn’t always sure about the man-woman thing, but low capital-gains taxes, born that way!” Maher joked.

“And a lot of people, of course, are saying, ‘Isn’t it strange for a trans woman to be in a party that is passing anti-trans laws all over the country?’” Maher added. “And Caitlyn said, ‘Yeah, I get that. It’s just something about being in a party that doesn’t respect me that makes me feel like I’m home with the Kardashians.’”

In the announcement for governor, Jenner bashed the Democrat Party’s stranglehold on the once Golden State of California.

“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,” Jenner said. “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.”

Jenner went on to rip into Gavin Newsom for hiking taxes and his crippling lockdown of the state amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“Taking on entrenched Sacramento politicians and the special interests that fund them requires a fighter who isn’t afraid to do what is right. I am a proven winner and the only outsider who can put an end to Gavin Newsom’s disastrous time as governor,” said Jenner.

“Small businesses have been devastated because of the over-restrictive lockdown. An entire generation of children have lost a year of education and have been prevented from going back to school, participating in activities, or socializing with their friends,” Jenner added.

Despite Jenner’s transgenderism, LGBT activists have not embraced Jenner’s candidacy. Trans activist Charlotte Clymer, for example, denounced Jenner as an “unqualified hack.”

“Caitlyn Jenner is a deeply unqualified hack who doesn’t care about anyone but herself,” tweeted Clymer. “Her views are terrible. She is a horrible candidate.”

“Caitlyn Jenner has no real support. I don’t care about her candidacy. I do care about the ways in which her asinine views will be weaponized against trans people and the ways in which transphobia will go unchecked. This is purely a vanity campaign, and it’s incredibly selfish,” added Clymer.

“Caitlyn Jenner’s only real political position is doing whatever it takes to boost Caitlyn Jenner, and she doesn’t care who gets hurt along the way. I wish this didn’t need to be said, but undoubtedly it does: whatever you may think of Caitlyn Jenner–and I do NOT think kindly of her–please remember there are numerous valid critiques of her without turning to transphobia. Please think before you post. Please.”

  1. How kind of Charlotte Clymer to decide for everyone what is and what is not an appropriate response. Thanks, honey.

    Among the many criticisms the Left had of Trump was that he was mentally unstable (so they said). There is worry now that Joe Biden is senile and demented and thus not fit for the job. For that matter, I even remember when Reagan’s mind began to slip toward the end of his term and how concerned people were.

    If mental unfitness means that someone is not fit for a position of power, then how can we take an obviously mentally ill person, such as a transsexual, and seriously consider him for public office?
