CAITLYN’S MAGA TEAM
Parscale was Trump’s 2020 campaign manager, but was removed from his post ahead of the 2020 election due to low poll counts.
In September, he was involved in a bizarre incident with his wife where she called the cops at their Florida home, claiming he was suicidal.
He was detained under Baker Law.
Parscale doesn’t play a formal role in the campaign, but he does help Jenner build her team.
Cheung worked at the Trump White House in the communications department between 2017 and 2018.
Fabrizio worked for Trump in 2016 and 2020 as a pollster.
He has also worked with other prominent Republicans including Rand Paul, Matt Bevin, Rick Scott, Mitch McConnell Bill Cassidy.
“I don’t care if you’re a Republican or a Democrat. I present myself as governor of all Californians. To recover our true identity. To bring gold back to gold.
“The time has come to reach this summit. To be the shining city on the hill. Together, we will restore and renew the Californian dream.
“It’s about what’s going on here – it’s not just about a person. It’s about all of us.
Earlier this week, Jenner stirred up controversy by saying that she doesn’t think it’s fair for transgender women who are born men to participate in female sports.
“It’s a matter of fairness, which is why I oppose biological trans boys who participate in female sports at school.
“It’s just not fair and we need to protect girls’ sport in our schools,” she said.
She later doubled down on Twitter saying, “I’m clear on my stance. It is a matter of fairness and we must protect girls’ sport in our schools.
Jenner’s team includes controversial Trump aides.
Parscale was fired as Trump’s campaign manager ahead of the 2020 election amid falling polls.
He has since worked on a platform to protect conservatives from the cancellation culture, called Campaign Nucleus.
In September, Parscale’s wife Candice called cops at their Florida home, claiming he was suicidal and attempted to injure her during a public crisis in which cops seized 11 guns from fire at home.
He was involuntarily detained under Florida’s Baker Act for three days and slapped with a risk protection order, and the politician later blamed his career boom and losing two children.
Jenner is also assisted by Caroline Wren who previously worked for Trump Victory, a joint fundraising committee for President Trump’s 2020 campaign.
She also helped organize the rally he addressed just before the assault on the U.S. Capitol on January 6.
Jenner’s team also includes Steven Cheung, who worked at Trump’s White House in communications and who also worked with Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2003.
One of the questions raised after Jenner announced her campaign is whether or not she will reveal some of her famous family’s finances when she discloses five years of tax returns, a requirement of the race.
No member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan has commented on her ad.
