Caitlyn Jenner, who’s running as a Republican in California’s gubernatorial recall election, is worried about her friends having to witness the struggles of homeless citizens.

In a Wednesday night interview on Fox News, Jenner—who recently expressed widely criticized opposition to trans girls being able to compete in sports with other girls—purported that a fight against “hypocrisy” is at the heart of her gubernatorial ambition.

“I’m really fighting against the hypocrisy that’s going on. … Companies are leaving left and right,” Jenner said when criticizing the current governor of California, Gavin Newsom, a Democrat. “My friends are leaving California. My hangar, the guy [right across from me] was packing his hangar, I said, ‘Where are you going?’ and he says, ‘I’m moving to Sedona, Arizona. I can’t take it anymore. I can’t walk down the streets and see the homeless.’”

Caitlyn Jenner to Hannity: "My friends are leaving California. My hangar, the guy right across, he was packing up his hangar and I said, where are you going? And he says, 'I'm moving to Sedona, Arizona, I can't take it anymore. I can't walk down the streets and see the homeless'"

Jenner added that she doesn’t “want to leave” California.

“Either I stay and fight or I get out of there,” she said.

Elsewhere, Jenner expressed support for a key aspect of Trumpism, a border wall.

“I am all for the wall,” Jenner said around 10 minutes into the interview.

Given Jenner’s wealth, as well as her history of out-of-touch comments on key issues, the former I Am Cait star’s decision this week to publicly lament the presence of people who have been detrimentally oppressed by capitalism has (fittingly) been met with widespread condemnation:

Not that I expect her to care but 1 in 3 trans people have been homeless in their lifetime. 1 in 8 experienced homelessness in the last year; 75% of them who stayed in shelters were harassed because they are trans.

This whole thread is evidence that Caitlyn Jenner is really really not smart at all. Yes she is morally bankrupt but also,,,, brain empty

does caitlyn jenner realize that a large percentage of homeless people in LA are trans people who are forced to the brutal margins because they’re not multi millionaires like her

so I actually think Caitlyn Jenner's friends packing up their Airport hangars and permanently leaving California is a...good thing? Like, objectively good for our state.
