Caitlyn Jenner Takes a Piss on Ted Cruz

Once upon a time, Caitlyn Jenner dreamed of being Ted Cruz’s “trans ambassador.” Many people pointed out that this was silly because Cruz is a virulent bigot, and virulent bigots make terrible bedfellows for LGBT people.

U.S. Reaches Peak Misplaced Outrage in Rick Perry-Caitlyn Jenner Flap

Adam Weinstein · 06/04/15 04:40PM

Rick Perry’s presidential campaign launched today on the premise that you don’t need to be able to count to three as long as you can push the red button. But amid his militaristic orgy of self-praise, dumb media people had a dumb media argument about the emo twins flanking Perry. Caitlyn Jenner was involved.
