In case you’ve missed it, Caitlyn endorsed Ted Cruz.
There are two things about the Caitlyn Jenner endorsement that I find intriguing.
First, how will the LGBT community take the news that their most visit “T” has endorsed an evangelical Conservative Republican?
Second, what will Trump tweet!?
On the LGBT response, they must be perplexed. Ted Cruz?! The guy who is all “marriage is between man and a woman…or a woman who used to be a man!” That’s got to have them in caucuses all over the country trying to figure out how to react.
You have to know that GLAAD wants its awards back, Lifetime is trying to get out of the reality deal, and Hillary Clinton is secretly auctioning her Vanity Fair Caitlyn cover edition on eBay.
As for why the Cruz endorsement, Caitlyn had this to say:
“Number one, if we don’t have a country, we don’t have trans issues. We need jobs. We need a vibrant economy. I want every trans person to have a job…”
“With $19 trillion in debt and it keeps going up, we’re spending money we don’t have. Eventually, it’s going to end. And I don’t want to see that. Socialism did not build this country. Capitalism did. Free enterprise. The people built it. And they need to be given the opportunity to build it back up.”
Caitlyn said that she recognized that Cruz might not be the best on issues around the transgendered, but that’s a small price to pay. Perhaps Caitlyn also realizes that Christian Conservatives are the best people on the planet and don’t live their lives necessarily through gender.
As for Trump, I can only imagine what he says. Caitlyn was supposed to be his endorsement wasn’t it?
As Trump might put it,
“The African-American community loves me, I do well with blacks. Mexicans love me…I do great with women…and Trannies, they love me too!”
Seriously, I would have loved to have been there when Trump found out that Caitlyn endorsed Cruz. We’ve seen a lot of Trump looks, but that one would be one for the books.
I wondered if Trump would tweet about it, and what would he say. Would Trump indeed brag about the number of trans-sexuals he’s hired?
In fairness to Trump, I don’t think he has a problem with any of the LGBT alphabet. In fact, if there were a Republican president the LGBT would accept (yeah right!), Trump would be it, one would think. His New York values seem to suggest that he doesn’t concern himself with such things.
Recall recently when discussing his 2012 endorsement of Romney, Trump suggested that perhaps he’s a B of the LGBT, when he implied that he could have had Romney “get on his knees” in order to get Trump’s endorsement. I’m sure Trump would deny that he was implying fellatio by Romney, but we know what he meant.
I’m not sure what the Caitlyn endorsement will do for Cruz. It will certainly put him in the spotlight this week, and Cruz will likely enjoy some Trump-like media. But you can bet Trump won’t let the spotlight shine too far off him for too long.
