In the last episode of Jimmy Kimmel and direct, the presenter reflected on the final season of Keeping up with the Kardashians.
“Did they go well? None of them married a fool, did they? He asked, apparently referring to Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband Kanye West, who dealt with a myriad of mental health issues while in the public eye.
He then asked, “How’s daddy, Bruce, the Olympic guy, okay?” Referring to Jenner’s dead name.
Soon after, he switched to Jenner’s candidacy for governor of California.
Kimmel claimed that “the resemblance is strange” as he showed various photos of Jenner in relation to Trump, after she appeared in an interview with Whoopi Goldberg on View: “Are we sure it’s not Donald Trump in a Caitlyn Jenner wig?”
He also called her “Kim Car-crashian” and claimed that she “was just trying to get attention.”
“Caitlyn Jenner has a better chance of being the next Batman than she does Governor of California,” he said. “She knows little or nothing about anything. “
Jenner hit back at Kimmel for her Twitter remarks, writing: “Last night [Jimmy Kimmel] called me Donald Trump with a wig. He obviously believes trans women are just men with wigs. Where is the outrage on the left or the LGBT community? Being AWAKE should be optional if you are a Democrat.
The independent has contacted representatives for Kimmel for comment.
Jenner announced her candidacy for governor of California in April, confirming that she would run as a Republican in the Democratic stronghold state.
In his interview on View On Thursday, June 9, the former reality TV star, 71, had a tense back-and-forth with co-host Joy Behar around who won the 2020 election.
“I want to ask you something before I go because we are out of time.” Something that is important for me to know, ”Behar began. “You say you’re a Republican, and I wonder because a lot of Republicans in this country think Donald Trump won the election, not Joe Biden. Are you one of those people, one of those Republicans?
“I think Donald Trump has done good things,” she continued. “What I liked about Donald Trump was that he was a disruptor. “
“But did he win? Did he win the elections? Behar challenged her.
“He was a disruptor when he was president,” Jenner replied. “I want to do the same. I want to come in and be a thoughtful disruptor in Sacramento. We have to change the system. I want to change this system for the positive. I am there for the people.
