Caitlyn Jenner mocked presidential candidate Ted Cruz after stopping by one of Donald Trump’s properties to use the restroom. In a video posted to Facebook, the transgender celebrity popped into the Trump International Hotel to take a leak – and make a political statement.
Last week Trump was asked about his opinion of the discriminatory bathroom bans being pushed by the religious right. He responded by saying that Caitlyn Jenner could use any restroom she chose at any of his properties and blasted North Carolina’s new law dictating which restroom transgender people can use.
“There have been very few complaints the way it is. People go, they use the bathroom that they feel is appropriate,” he said. “There has been so little trouble.”
Cruz, however, has been using Trumps anti-discrimination stance against him on the campaign trail. “Grown adult men, strangers, should not be alone in a bathroom with little girls,” Cruz said, adding that it’s “just common sense.”
Cruz has continued to attack transgender people and Trump, bringing the subject up in speeches, selling derogatory merchandise on his campaign website, and pushing out attack ads with lines like: “Should a grown man pretending to be a woman be allowed to use the women’s restroom? The same restroom used by your daughter? Your wife? Donald Trump thinks so.”
