It’s a Biological Thing: Charlie Kirk Doesn’t Want Caitlyn Jenner Representing GOP
Caitlyn Jenner recently announced a run for governor of California, but Charlie Kirk doesn’t think a transgender person should be representing the Republican party.
While Jenner has plenty of money and gets lots of free publicity, she is an odd fit for the Republican party. The GOP has spent the last 20 years doing everything they can to take away the rights of LGBTQ people. And they have a special hatred for transgender people in particular.
This attitude was on display when Kirk talked about Jenner’s candidacy with Fox News. He told the hosts, “I’m not a huge fan of the Republican Party getting behind Caitlyn Jenner. I represent a viewpoint held by half the country that biological standards matter.”
The Conservative pundit continued:
“Let me say, I’ve met Jenner. Very nice person, and I think that Jenner really believes in conservative values to an extent. However, I represent a viewpoint that millions of other Americans hold, which is that, who are we as Republicans? Are we just always going to try to be the first to try to get to something or are we going to sometimes make the more difficult argument, take all the arrows and the criticism and say these are deeply held beliefs, and that I wish Jenner the best and I think the left’s obviously exposing some of their hypocrisy in their treatment of Jenner, but I’m going to make the unpopular argument when it’s rooted in truth.”
Kirk closed his comments, “Look, it’s a complicated topic, but as the Republican Party continues to try to find its soul, I think it’s very important that we’re clear about who represents our party, especially in a widely covered, publicized governor’s race in California. So that why I’m going to continue to take the position I take.”
