One of the big selling points for Caitlyn Jenner’s candidacy for California Governor is that she is supposed to be a political outside who found success outside of politics and wants to translate that into public office. But before even getting too deep into her first campaign, she’s acting like a seasoned political pro. Case-in-point: A bald-faced lie about whether or not she even voted in 2020.
In an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash, Jenner claimed to have golfed instead of voting in 2020. Records show that she definitely did. According to Politico:
POLITICO reported last month that Jenner did not vote in nearly two-thirds of the elections in which she was eligible since 2000. After Jenner’s latest comments to CNN aired Tuesday morning, a representative of the registrar’s office reconfirmed to POLITICO that Jenner voted — with documentation.
The issue arose when CNN’s Dana Bash asked Jenner this week if she had voted for former President Donald Trump in last year’s election. Jenner is relying on former Trump aides for campaign strategy, but she had broken with the Republican president in 2018 over his positions on transgender issues.
“I didn’t even vote,” Jenner told Bash in a wide-ranging interview at her home in Malibu. “Out here in California, it’s like, why vote for a Republican president? It’s just not going to work. I mean, it’s overwhelming.”
But Jenner didn’t stop there. Asked further if she voted on downticket races, she said she did not and suggested she didn’t participate at all.
“It was voting day, and I thought, the only thing out here in California that I worry about, which affects people, is the propositions that were out there,” Jenner said. “And I didn’t see any propositions that I really had one side or the other. And so it was Election Day. And I just couldn’t get excited about it. And I just wound up going to play golf and I said, eh, I’m not doing that.”
But that wasn’t the only major revelation regarding the 2020 election. Not only did she pretend to not vote in the presidential election as well as down-ballot races, she also said the ballot measures were not of interest to her. If true, which it isn’t, then that’s an insult to California voters who do believe some or all of the 12 issues on the ballot were important. If false, which it appears to be, then she’s avoiding talking about the very issues that were important enough to go on the ballot. Either way, California voters should be scratching their heads. Politico continued:
California voters considered 12 ballot measures in November during a campaign that set new records for overall spending. Proposals affected the future of cash bail, affirmative action, gig workers, rent control and criminal sentencing, among other topics.
Jenner’s campaign would not comment on the record when asked about the conflicting accounts Tuesday and only spoke on background.
Despite Jenner giving the impression she opted out of the election entirely and played golf on Election Day — and that she only worries about state propositions but chose not to consider those as well — a spokesperson said that Jenner voted on “some local issues.” The spokesperson said Jenner was responding to a question about whom she chose for president in 2020 and said that she didn’t support any candidate.
Jenner’s city of Malibu had a City Council contest and a hotel tax increase measure on the November ballot. Los Angeles County had a competitive district attorney’s race and a measure to direct more county funds to social services.
Her claim to be a non-voter in that seminal 2020 election was baffling for a gubernatorial candidate trying to establish her political credibility, especially since records show she did participate in the contest. And it remains unclear why her statements conflict with the records.
Some political insiders speculated the candidate, speaking off the cuff, may have wanted to distance herself from Trump on CNN. Or that she possibly couldn’t keep her elections straight.
I’ve made it very clear that as much as I dislike Gavin Newsom, I do not want Caitlyn Jenner in Sacramento representing the people of California or the Republican Party. There are better candidates available, which is to say pretty much any other actual Republican, which Jenner is not. Being a little fiscally conservative and opposing biological males competing against girls in sports is not enough incremental change from Newsom. I’d rather suffer through Democrat rule for a couple more years and then put in actual Republicans instead of installing Jenner who would set back the GOP’s chances by decades.
When politicians lie, most just blow it off. But when a candidate is supposed to be an outsider who hasn’t been tainted by public life, their credibility is of utmost importance. Caitlyn Jenner’s credibility is fading fast. There are better Republican candidates.
YouTube, Spotify, and other Big Tech platforms are taking Freedom First Network down
It’s no secret we speak our minds and bring on guests who do the same. That’s one of the biggest reasons we put together the Freedom First Network in the first place. There are far too many news outlets, including so-called “conservative” media companies, who are so beholden to Big Tech that they temper their perspectives at best and outright coverup the truth at worst. Many, as you all know, will blatantly lie in order to maintain the narrative that supports the radical agenda taking over much of the United States.
We have had our YouTube channel taken down. Many of our shows have been suppressed or removed by Facebook and Twitter. Spotify banned one of our shows completely from their platform. Google hates us. We’ve even been censored by some of the smaller players like Medium, Transistor, and Captivate. But we stand behind our reporting and perspectives and we refuse to bow down to Big Tech tyranny for the sake of pageviews or video plays.
This isn’t the easiest road to travel, especially for a media company that is so new. We launched Freedom First Network in 2020 to fight against the very censorship that we’re seeing so widespread today. We have found great homes for our content on freer speech platforms like Rumble and we’re putting our best efforts forward into building our presence on Locals. Nevertheless, we cannot do it alone. We need help.
One of the things cofounders Jeff Dornik and JD Rucker agreed to from the start was to never be the pawns of companies that do not embrace our worldview. Finding advertisers and affiliates is easy; we receive requests by companies wanting to be pushed on our shows every day. But it’s important to us that we’re promoting companies, services, and products that are beneficial to maintaining a Freedom First stance in America. As a result, we do not take on sponsors easily. We would rather rely on our own products like Freedom First Coffee and the support of our wonderful viewers, listeners, and readers.
Those who want to support us and help keep the fight for America’s future moving forward can do so by donating through our Locals page. There, you can donate monthly or one-time. Some have told us to use Patreon or GoFundMe, but both of those platforms have demonstrated a hatred for free speech. Locals does not. They embrace it. We encourage everyone to join us on Locals, but donations are greatly appreciated as well. We do not have day jobs. Our fight for freedom is a full-time gig.
Please feel free to reach out to us through our contact form. It goes directly to our founders, so if you’re interested in getting involved, investing, sponsoring, or even bringing a show to our network, let us know. May God Bless the United States of America!
