During an appearance on The View to tout her campaign to replace California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D), Caitlyn Jenner refused to say whether she believes Donald Trump had lost the election.
Instead, the former Olympian turned reality show star would only say Trump was a “disrupter” and that she wants to be one too.
“I want to ask you something before we go because we’re out of time. Something that’s important for me to know,” co-host Joy Behar asked at the end of the segment before the show ended. “You say that you’re a Republican, and I’m just wondering because a lot of Republicans in this country believe that Donald Trump won the election and not Joe Biden. Are you one of those people, one of those Republicans?”
Jenner tried to pivot, saying she wasn’t “going to get into all that” because the “election is over.”
“I think Donald Trump did do some good things,” she added. “What I liked about Donald Trump is that he was a disrupter.”
“But did he win? Did he win the election?” Behar asked again.
“He was a disrupter when he was president. I want to do the same thing. I want to go in and be a thoughtful disrupter in Sacramento,” Jenner said. “We need to change the system. I want to change that system for the positive. I’m in it for the people.”
Jenner also pivoted away from a question about her position on transgender children playing school sports as well, saying it wasn’t a big issue in California.
Jenner’s campaign has already faced some bumps in the road. Her past support for Donald Trump – which she reiterated – as well as her opposition to transgender rights and alienating comments about homeless people, haven’t won her much support.
Twitter immediately erupted as viewers expressed outrage that the Republican refused, once again, to acknowledge reality.
REMINDER: Caitlyn Jenner is an asshole and will never be governor of California.

Caitlyn Jenner is refusing to say that Trump lost the election.
These delusional narcissistic Republicans with a combined IQ of 4 have no place in politics.
Caitlyn, you're a major disappointment & an embarrassment to the trans community.
Get out & vote CA & #SayNoToJenner

Caitlyn Jenner is campaigning because of something she learned from watching Donald: If you’re a horrible idiot who constantly says stupid things, running for office is a great way to get back on TV.

#TheView after that Caitlyn Jenner interview, I hope Californians make the right decision. She didnt say "Biden won fair and square". She avoided the question! Don't get complacent cause the state is blue. Remember what trump did? Go out and vote! California deserves better!

Earlier today, The View had Caitlyn Jenner on and she aimed her bigotry against the LGBTQ community again and also spread GQP propaganda. She even refused to say that Agolf Twitler lost. As an LGBTQ Californian, I’ll never vote for her. She’s a dreadful person.

She‘s already disqualified herself: „I‘m not going to get into that.“ translated means: I don‘t wanna scare Trumpers away nor do I wanna scare away rational-thinking Republicans. By taking no stance, she shows what California DOES NOT NEED in the future and that is a hypocrite.
